Big Hair Tutorial


How to achieve big hair with natural hair.

I have what you call curly fine hair.  It looks thick, but my hair strands are really thin which can make it difficult for me to achieve the natural big hair look.  A lot of you have been asking me about my most recent hair routine, which allows me to achieve big hair.   Through the help of a new haircut and the style advice from T. Oliver Hair Studio, I've got this new routine down pat and I thought I would share.  Follow these very easy step to achieving steps.  Let me know if you have any questions. 

Hair notes:  You generally hear of people using a paddle brush to dry.  I use a wide touch comb.  The teeth are so wide that it allows me to keep some of my curl pattern in the first dry.  Paddle brushes, for me, do too good of a job of straightening.  Also, when trying to achieve your big hair look, the less the product the better.  Use a little something for moisturizer, but nothing too heavy.   As a person who loves cream moisturizers, a heavy cream can weigh hair down and interfere with creating volume.  Finally, don't be afraid to respray and flip certain areas to get the desired volume/curl.  Different textures of hair can exist on the same head of hair and some areas may be more difficult than others.

  5. OMG I describe my hair the same, which is why I keep it short. I am glad this process is not too long. Going to have to check it out for sure.Now I have seen the Curls products at Target and (shocker) some Bed Bath & Beyond locations, but where would you suggest I can get the BangStyle?

  6. I have the same hair type! I have been wanting to rock a curly fro for months!!! I like Lisa Rachel's Sulfate Free Cleansing Conditioner, which can be found at most Ross Dress for Less. I also use Organix oil after wards and most of the time I don't need anything else.
