Skip Curl for Transitioning Styling

Curl CanuckCurl Canuck Registered Users Posts: 6
So about six months ago, after 6 years of relaxing/bleaching/heat styling my hair, I finally decided to take a break and say this is enough. I was spending way too much time on my hair every morning for mediocre at best results and I was getting tons of breakage.

Unfortunately my hair's so damaged that the curl pattern is a mess and for a while my hair was just a gross pile of frizz. Buuuut the Skip Curl technique (there's a video on youtube) in the right places really makes a difference I find.

It's a little time-consuming but you don't have to do your whole head and it's just a temporary way of styling your hair without heat until your hair starts to get healthier.

Anyways, just thought I'd share! It's made my hair much less of a nightmare! :blob8:

    I'm trying this too while I transition. I actually just skip curled my hair this morning and am waiting for it to dry. Unfortunately, my thermally reconditioned straight ends just won't hold the twist so I'll have to hit the ends with a curling iron. The skip curling definitely makes my hair look smoother and more controlled though.

    Yup, where he's twisting or curling the hair around his finger like that. Some people "skip" their hair when they get to the end, like you skip rope. Anyway...if you try it I think it definitely works better with smaller sections of hair like he shows in the video. I did it with sections that were too big and it looked like I had sausages all over my head LOL.
