quick styling tips for curly hair in the morning?

Storm In A TeacupStorm In A Teacup Posts: 4Registered Users
Hey. im 18 a senior in HS (and new to this board)

I dont have a lot of time in the morning when I'm getting ready for school, I usually wear my hair up or straighten it once and a while.


I do try styling my hair to wear it down, with my natural curly hair but it never turns out how I want or maybe like once and a while it does.

Does anyone have any quick styling tips for the morning, considering I dont have a lot of time?

    I have gotten a method down that really doesn't take too long. When I get out of the shower in the morning, I gently dry my hair a little. I use some light gel spray and comb it through, then I get a towel and use it to scrunch out some more of the moisture. I leave it wet (but drying) and get everything else I need to do done (breakfast, make-up, etc.) and then spritz a tad more gel on and softly defuse it for 8-10 minutes. Over all, I only spend 10-15 minutes on it. It works well for me!

    I think the best advice anyone can give for this is just to learn your hair. Once you know what works and what doesn't taking care of it isn't very hard.

    i shower at night and then plop overnight, so that when i wake up all i have to do is shake out my hair to get the roots to look right, and maybe use a little gel to fix some frizzy places. it works pretty well for me! good luck :D

    After I wash my hair, I apply coconut oil and then gel and I'm good for the day. But my hair has to be detangled and still wet when I do it.

    Sorry about that spammer, I reported him. Anyway, I find that using paper towels really helps soak up excess water.

    I take my showers at night. So when I get out I scrunch out extra water, put on some [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]re:coil[/buylink] and gel, put in clips, and scrunch again useing paper towels. After that I diffuse till about halfway dry, then go to sleep. The next morning I take out my clips, spritz some water into my hair to reactivate my products from the night before, and use a bit of spray gel if i have any frizzies.
    hope this helps and good luck :]

    I take a shower at night because during the winter, it's harder for me to manage my hair in the morning...weird I know. I get out of the shower, scrunch my hair with a light weight towel, and then add gel. I then plop for about twenty minutes as I do my homework, after that I gently shake my hair out, and airdry. Then in the morning I just scrunch a bit more gel in, then I go.

    MyPicture-12.jpg

    all it is, is my front most layers pinned up with bobby pins (on either side of my part), and then i moved them forward a little so there was volume. i used Curls Rock cream to otherwise style. it took me. . .maybe. . .five minutes or so, and three bobby pins. :)

    i don't even touch my hair unless i wanna make a part or sumthing, the night b4 i usually wash my hair n put extra gel and let it air dry until its really crunchy and has no volume at all. lol. i go to sleep like that n in the morning cuz i move around when i sleep n my hair rubs against the pillow n all that the crunchyness goes away n theres more volume. it looks a lil frizzy in the mornin sumtimes so i just take a lil shine or a lil gel n rub it lightly on the top of my head or wherever. i dont have alot of time to get ready in the morning either so this always works for me, oh yea it doesnt make ur hair crappy either wen i go to school i get a million compliments n ppl ask me wat i do i jus say "i woke up like this" haha.

    i usually take showers the night before, that way in the morning its dry and i can just touch up any spots that need fixing. i started this when i would take showers in the morning but then when i went to school my hair was still wet and when i would do anything physical my hair would get frizzy. taking showers at night asures you that your hair is dry in the morning. :)

    I wash my hair in the morning use soft curl cream and moouse and scrunch my hair. Very easy, and doesn't take a long time.

    i take a shower b4 i go to sleep then i apply the gel all over my hair and then plunk/plop my hair into a towel overnight so that when i wakeup i just take off the towel and apply more gel and then place my curls where i want. it really works and it is super fast.

    This worked for me. I have long hair and it takes about 10 hours to air dry. (I am hesitant about using a dryer/diffuser. )

    So co-washing it at night, putting my condish in and pulling it up into a twisted bun on top of my head works well. I sleep on a t-shirt over my pillow rather than putting it on my head.

    In the morning, my hair is still very damp so I scrunch my curls with GF gel spray.

    I wash my hair at night because I haven't yet mastered the art of diffusing and it takes about 4 hours to dry. I re-style it in the mornings by spraying water mixed with a little conditioner on it. Works alright, once you figure out how much of everything you need.

    yea..so im going into high school in the fall and for all of middle school ive worn my hair in a ponytail every day. My bus is going to come at like 6:30 in the morning and my hair takes a really long time to dry..im like a 2c i think..
    so if anyone has an idea of what i should do?

    Im not a teen but I have the same issue. My hair takes between 4-6 hours to dry. However I cant just spay and go in the morning as my hair just goes frizzy and the curls are flat. I only get decent curls from throughly wetting my hair.

    What hair type do you have? I have 3b-3c and I find that when I sleep with my hair wet I just wake up with weird flat twisty curls instead of the ringlets I get otherwise. Is there anything you do specially for going to sleep with wet hair?
  • Ryfrie21Ryfrie21 Posts: 40Registered Users
    I shower in the morning. when i have conditioner in my hair i comb my hair with a wide tooth comb. Then when i get out and my hair is still soaking wet, i comb it all back like i'm putting it into a ponytail. Then i run my gel (redken's ringlet 07) into my hair. i dont scrunch it at all, i just run it through with my fingers. then i shake my head a little and let my hair find its natural part. it looks great and takes about 3 minutes!

    What I do is take a shower in the morning and put lots of garnier fructis hard curl gel in. Then at night, I braid my hair and in the morning I apply pantene pomade into my dry hair and put it half-up. It works really well for me! I just keep on that cycle. :tongue5::duckie:

    I find that washing your hair at night makes more sense, simply because showering in the morning takes too long for me, and it also means that I'll be outside & at school with wet or damp hair, which ensures that it'll get frizzy and poofy. I rinse, then condition my hair at night, get out all the knots gently with a widetoothed comb, and then I put in about two or three quarter-size blobs of Sunsilk's 24/7 Antifrizz creme, which comes in a green bottle. I comb my hair a little more to distrbitute, then I comb all my hair back over my head into a tight ponytail, so that my bangs and part are flush with the top of my head. I pin my bangs in place, then go to bed. In the morning, I simply remove the pins & comb my bangs down a bit, take out the pontail, run my fingers lightly through any snarls, and finish with some vo5 Curvaceous Curls Mousse and John Frieda Frizz Ease Secret Weapon Finishing Creme, and maybe a bit of flexible-hold hair spray. Hope this helped!
