I found this article during a search for naturally curly hair and I am shocked!!! This is horrible!!! DRY your hair then BRUSH....NO WAY!!!!! Most curly girls shouldn't even own a brush!!!

Want Curly Hair?

Want curly hair? Now you can get it!

Why not write us a review for this procedure?

If you have the ability to naturally curl your hair, meaning you have naturally wavy or slightly curly hair, it is fairly easy. You don't have to do throught all the hassel of using curling irons or curlers. You don't have to pay sixty bucks to get a perm, but you do have to spend 5 minutes in the morning.

InStRuCtIoNs

1. When you get up, take a shower and use a shampoo and conditioner that help curls or give you volume.

2. Dry your hair, carefuly brush it, and comb in a leave-in conditioner. (Skip the leave-in conditioner if you have really oily hair)

3. Work in a curling, anti-frizz, holding mousse and tightly scrunch your hair with your hands.

4. Spray a light coat of hair spray and scrunch some more to lock the curls in place.

Once you are satisfied, congratulations! You now have a way to easily transform limp, wavy hair in to oodles of noodles!

To all of you that have strait hair, sorry this article doesn't include you. More curling options coming soon.

    FRIZZ AND BIG HAIR!!! Really, a wide tooth comb on wet hair is all the "brushing" you should do for the best curls, unless you are straightening your hair, then it would be alright to use a brush.

    Oh! Perhaps I should get a wide tooth comb then? :)

    I'm not sure why people are against brushes or think they cause "frizz and big hair", either. I have big hair either way - a wide toothed comb ain't gonna make it small, and I don't care. It can actually get bigger from combing than brushing.
    A wide-toothed comb is great for spreading conditioner through wet hair, but for me it would never detangle my hair on it's own. I need a variety of tools - picks, fine combs, brushes, etc. to get out knots, and my fingers of course. I use a routine similar to the one posted except I don't scrunch or use hair spray. Scrunching makes my hair HUGE, and tangled.
    As to frizz, nope, a brush doesn't do that to my hair. It does separate curls and make it feel super soft and in more tight s waves/spirals than corkscrews. It also spreads oil and product evenly through the hair, loosens tangles and feels so darn good! I brush whether or not I'm wearing my hair straight, especially at night.
    My relatives - everything from 3a to 4b all use brushes all the time. I see no reason why we shouldn't own them!

    I dont own a brush either. I have a wide tooth comb in the shower. I put on conditioner and comb it there, then rinse. I also let it dry naturally, unless it's really cold. (I'm in Michigan) then I use a diffuser and scrunch my curls to life. Works great for me!!

    I own a few brushes from my straightening days, but they're for display purposes only :lol:.

    Actually, I'm glad that I didn't get rid of them. I blow-dried my hair straight this past December, so I used my brushes for the first time in a long time!!! Mmm ... it felt so good on the 'ol scalp! :angel:angel.gif

    the bold hairtypes above can usually get away with brushing and blowdrying to get the "straight hair with curled ends" look or just have soft loose curl types. i'm pretty sure this is what they were talking about, since i know several wavy-haired and looser curly-haired girls who get away with this. JMO :wink:

    and i can see both sides of the brush debate. it depends on your hair... we're all different... :)

    I had to stop using brushes, except for when straightening my hair. It made my hair get very bush and nest-like, as it broke apart my waves curls and made them mesh into a mass of uncomely frizz. I only use a comb after conditioning in the shower. I don't even put my fingers through my hair once it had dryed!

    There are several 3c's who brush. It's in the "questions for 3c thread" that I started on the general baord. My 4a and 4b relatives all brush, too.

    Yes, that's me :D Cute, isn't it. DON'T BRUSH YOUR HAIR!
    Let me explain, the youth in my church every year go to a girls' camp and go crazy. The first year I went, I was swimming in the lake and came out with my hair all wet and I wanted one of the older girls to braid my hair. She pulled out her brush and started going at it. Well, as she brushed, my hair began to dry. Ever stroke of the brush brought more volume to my hair. They had never seen anything like this...it was GREAT. They took a bunch of pictures with them hiding behind my hair and poking their faces out. Since then, it's become a annual tradition for me to 'fro my hair at girls' camp. :D

    This is me on a normal day

    Ok, one vote for the other camp: If you brush my hair and then work in conditioner and curling balm (or whatever)--like the instructions say--it will curl. It would probably be a bad idea for a 3B, but it may work for some people like me.

    I only own a wide-tooth comb.....and I only comb it when it's wet, when I'm combing conditioner through my hair. Once the conditioner is rinsed out, no brush or comb comes near my hair.
  • prettypollyprettypolly Registered Users Posts: 49 Curl Neophyte
    Those instructions are weird. Dry THEN try to make it curl?! No way can that work with wavies/wavy-curlies!! Once it's dry and poofed up there's no curling it. Bahhhh.

    curlie_gurlie your brushed out picture isn't working!! I'd LOVE to see it if you wouldn't mind posting it again :D hehe

    I find that my (type 1 but whatev) mom has a really nice boar bristle brush that smooths instead of bushes my hair, but plastic + hair = ouch. Brushing can be fine for some, but drying THEN curling is just plain wrong. If I'm gonna get corkscrews instead of my hybrid swirls, I put in product when it'll make a difference, when it's wet! WTH, it's so obvious they're straighties 'cuz nothing is gonna happen with those products in BLOWDRIED hair!!!

    I brush my 4a hair everyday and get the best curls I ever had than when I raked products through. Brushing my leave in into my hair give me great clumps of curls and less frizz....

    Um. If I don't brush my second day hair it's BAD. Really bad. My hair gets flattened when I sleep on it and will only curl up properly when I free the strands again with the brush.

    That said, I only use bristle brushes. Never the ones with the plastic bobbles.

    You'd think if someone has "limp waves" as that article says, drying it first isn't going to work very well.

    Hmm.

    Curlie_gurlie, I would *love* to be able to get my hair to go afro like yours. I'm serious. It's gorgeous when it's brushed (as it is when it's not brushed, actually). A girl in my year came to the prom with hair a lot like that last year with a sort of thick ribbon around her hairline to make it stand up more and she looked stunning. It's "statement" hair. I love my hair but sometimes I wish it was a bit curlier.

    omg. everyone with straight hair at my school does the mousse and scrunch thing. it scares me because they have like crunchy hair and it's not even curly, it's wavy and looks like they ran through rain and it never dried.

    Hey Curlie_gurlie, is that an LDS girls camp I see? I love the picture.

    As for the rest...BRUSHES! BRUSHES! Never! All the ripping and the shredding and the fluff! I get chills just thinking if it. Maybe for some, but my hair has Brushdar and fluffs just thinking of it. I don't comb after conditioning and this was a very hard concept for my mom (Strait short etc) to grasp that it makes my main fluffy. Its great on a poodle, not on me.

  • nutterbutterflynutterbutterfly Registered Users Posts: 137
    I brushed my hair every day for 11 years... NEVER AGAIN.

    I just don't get it... when you brush dry, curly hair, it does NOT get all pretty and delicate... it gets HUGE and, if it's long & thick (read: HEAVY), it becomes rather triangular!!
