3C Frizz Free Wash And Go Method
Combatting frizz for 3c coily hair types seem to permeate across
the lines of styling, products, and hair routines. This is an issue that most 3c’s will either
be talking about, asking about, or simply have frustrated them.
I will share that the best weapon you have in your arsenal
will be how you style your hair and apply your product. For 3c coily types I suggest the following:
Method: LOC – (L)
Liquid (O) Oil (C) Cream
After co-washing or shampooing your hair we will be using
the LOC method. This method is best done
in the shower!
Items you will need:
Leave-In, Oil, and a Cream-based Moisturizer
Section off your hair using duck clips, bobby pins, or some
type of clip.
Make sure hair is thoroughly, super wet
To that section add the Leave-In of your choice
Follow this with an application of your favorite
Now, here you can do one of two things, according to your
Cream-based Moisturizer or
Apply A Moisturizing Gel
I have fine 3c hair
and layering too much product (depending on what they are) can cause hair to
become limp or weighed down. However,
for most 3c/4a types gels do an awesome job in defining your coils.
I’m one that does not like to apply gel to my hair and I
will opt to just add the Cream-based moisturizer instead of the gel. There are also times that I will apply gel by
taking a scoop and placing in my hands and smoothing over each section for
The primary objective of this method is this: When you hair is soaking wet, your coils and
curls will be the most defined and frizz-free that they will be. It is taking the opportunity to “freeze” the curls with gel to get a defined
and frizz-free wash and go.
Think of it as this, when your section is not thoroughly wet
, it will already start to frizz up. So
when you apply your gel to the hair you are actually “defining” frizzy hair!
Give this method a try and let me know how it worked for you!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Curls to You!
