We love that curls come in all shapes and sizes, with different textures and lengths! Short curls sometimes need a little more help, so follow our tips for gorgeous defined curls.
Smooth, Hydrated Curls
After washing and conditioning as normal, apply a tiny amount of our Hydrating Curl Creme if your hair is in need of extra moisture or if it is easily tangled. If you do find your curls knot easily, we recommend using a wide-tooth comb to detangle. This also ensures the product is evenly distributed. Add a very small amount of Creme on soaking wet hair to create slip, and comb this through, before gently scrunching to reform your curls. If your short hair isn’t particularly dry, you can skip the Hydrating Creme and go straight to the Mousse or Gel.
How To Define Short Curls
To define your curls, try a little finger coiling, especially on tricky areas that don’t seem to curl as easily. This technique adds definition and smooths frizz, while also maintaining your curls for longer.
Are your short curls looking a little flat?
Try our Volumising Curl Mousse to give them a boost! The lightweight formula is perfect for short curls, adding volume without weighing your hair down. It contains protein to strengthen curls and add bounce. Another great technique is root clipping. To add volume at the root, place small claw clips at your roots while drying. Simply remove the clips once your hair is completely dry. You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes!
To add hold and definition, apply either our Enhancing Gel, or the stronger Mega Hold Gel. With short curls, you can apply more gel nearer the root and scrunch in well to define your hair. If frizz is a big issue for you, smooth a little more gel over your hair when it’s about 80% dry and gently scrunch or finger-twist for frizz-free and bouncy curls. If the curls feel slightly crispy when dry, simply “scrunch-out-the-crunch” to break up any gel cast.
