Steps to get overnight curls
1. Start with Clean tangle free hair
If you don't start by detangling your hair, by the time morning rolls around, your hair is going to be so tangled that it'll take forever to untangle. You're probably going to spend the whole day trying to get it back into shape before you can apply stylers or head out.
Use these hair hacks to make brushing your hair easy and fast all at once.
a. Wash and Condition your hair and detangle while your hair is still damp with our nourishing conditioner. Read more about washing and conditioning HERE. When you wash your hair, make sure you use cold water (around 4 degrees Fahrenheit). Also be sure that you do not scrub your hair vigorously while washing it, but use gentle strokes and concentrate on the scalp. Never use hot water or you may strip your hair completely of oils, making your hair dry and brittle.
b. Once detangled, apply some of the leave in conditioner on your hair after using a hair towel. It takes off just enough moisture to help with styling. The trick is to condition your hair before styling it. Conditioning your hair will give it some volume and help it stay curly all day long. If you have a lot of hair, you may want to use the gel on top of the leave in conditioner to keep the curls in longer.

Once you have chosen your method and its time for styling in the morning.. here are some tips:
- Grab a curly comb - If you use an ordinary comb, it will take hours to get it through your curls and will cause a frizz explosion. Using a wide-toothed comb, which will help cut through the curls. If you want to add volume and body to your curly hair, don't comb out the curl, just use the comb on the roots.
- To keep that moisture locked inside your hair, and the curls instact, take your curls out with some serum on your palms or our Intense Hair Oil. A little goes a very long way and you want to use only enough to skirm the surface of your hair and not enough to make it damp.
Do overnight curls work on fine hair
If you have very fine, extremely thin hair, overnight curls may not turn out at all because you would need a lot of hold. Try skipping the leave in conditioner and just apply the gel before going to bed.
