To make your curly hair soft and silky, shampoo and condition it, blot your hair with a towel, apply nourishing serum, allow your hair to air-dry and apply a frizz-fighting hairspray. The required supplies are shampoo, conditioner, a comb, hair serum, hairspray and towels. Long hair takes hours to dry, but the active steps in this procedure only require about 15 minutes.

  1. Wash and condition your hair

    Wash and condition your hair with moisturizing products. Leave the conditioner on your hair for at least five minutes, and then rinse with cool water.

  2. Comb your hair

    Wring the excess water from your hair, and comb it with a wide-toothed plastic comb.

  3. Blot your hair

    Wrap your hair in a towel, and leave it there for three minutes. Press and squeeze the towel to remove as much water as possible.

  4. Apply smoothing serum

    Rub a generous amount of smoothing serum between your hands, and rake it through your hair with your fingers. Apply extra serum to the tips of your hair.

  5. Dry your hair

    Allow your hair to dry naturally.

  6. Seal your style with hairspray

    When your hair is almost dry, mist it with a frizz-fighting hairspray that contains silicone. Spray your entire head, and pay special attention to the ends of your hair.
