    Usually, after I apply product to my hair I finger set my curls. I like to emphasize my spirals because they are so gorgeous with just a little boost. I pick out natural clumps and spiral/twirl them around my index finger. I do this all over, spray with gel to set, do not touch until dry, and there we go!

    3B with some 3a. Fell off but am now back on the CG bandwagon and looking for my HG products.

    I find that gels with aloe really encourage the curls in my hair!
    I'm a 3b, with 3c underneath.
    I'm a product junkie. <3

    does diffusing or air drying make a difference? does one make your hair curlier than the other?

    Conditioners or styling products with glycerin seem to give me tighter, springier curls.
    Also White Rain coconut conditioner seems to tighten my curls. Not sure if it's the coconut.
    3b/c fine, thick, porous, protein sensitive
    Modified CG, CJ Rehab, JCWDT, KCKT, VO5 Chamomile Tea Therapy, CJDF, HEBE Gel/Mousse, Bioinfusion Rosemary Mint shampoo, occasional protein

    Experimenting with BRHG

    It doesn't tighten the curl, it just makes the curl a little fuller. At least that's my experience with a diffuser.:happy10:

    I asked a similar question for my 3A curls a while back, and people kept telling me to air dry for tighter curls, but I found the opposite to be true. I get better curl formation and more shrinkage when i diffuse.
    3A!
