Water (easiest to use in a spray bottle)
Curling cream or gel of your choice
- Start by sectioning off a small piece of hair. Spritz the section with water until wet and gently work it through for moisture. Detangle the section during this step
- Apply the oil of your choice to this section to lock in moisture and add shine. In the video she uses coconut oil, but you can substitute for castor, jojoba, olive, avocado, etc
- Take a small amount of your styler and apply it to the section from root to tip. Your curls will start to define on their own. Once you see the curls pop, move on to the next section, and don’t go back because it will cause unnecessary frizz
- Repeat all over your head. Afterwards, let your hair air dry or use a diffuser to help lift your curls and add some volume. If you’re going to bed, put on a plastic cap and a satin bonnet to retain the moisture
Shingling is a great way to revamp your hairstyles without having to jump in the shower and start from scratch. Use a curling cream for softer hair, and a gel if you want more definition. The style will take about 20 minutes depending on the length and thickness of your hair. Watch the video below.
