Curly hair expert and owner of Royal Locks Curl Care, Casey Simmons says, “Using a small amount of leave-in conditioner on the ends of hair will keep this style looking healthy and playful, rather than wild and unkempt. After distributing evenly, give the ends of small sections a pinch with the leave-in conditioner. To have more definition, combine a small amount of curl cream with your leave-in. This product isn’t just for curly hair, it will help style textured and wavy hair as well. Your look will be frizz free and fun.”
