Styling curly hair is not only about the right techniques or the products you use, but also about the amount of each product you apply. Figuring out how much product to apply to curly hair can be quite difficult, which is why I thought I could share how much of each product I apply to my curls.
Before showing you how much product I apply to my curls, I would like to mention that there is no “right” amount of product, because the amount of product that is right for your curls greatly depends on the length and thickness of your curls. With this post, I can simply give you an idea for what works with my curls. Right now they’re this long (I want to cut them soon!):
Currently, I’m using either the Deva Curl No Poo shampoo or the Gentle Cleansing Shampoo by Curl Junkie. As you can see in the following two pictures they have a totally different consistency.
After having applied either one of the previous two shampoos, I detangle my curls with the Kinky Curly Knot Today. To detangle my curls as gently as possible, I use quite a lot of it:
Once my curls are detangled, I finish by conditioning my curls with the Mop Top Daily Conditioner:
Whenever I refresh my curls on second days, I use just a little bit of the Curls Junkie Smoothing Assurance Lotion
Hopefully this post helps you to figure out how much product to apply to your curls!
