What You'll Need:

Step 1: Start with Clean, Conditioned Hair

Begin by washing your hair with Lusid shampoo and conditioner suitable for your hair type to provide a strong foundation for well-defined curls. If you're uncertain about the right Lusid products for your hair type, take our hair quiz to discover the perfect match.

Step 2: Detangle Your Hair with Lusid Detangling Leave-In Conditioner

Apply Lusid Detangling Leave-In Conditioner to damp hair, focusing on the lengths and ends. Use a wide-toothed comb, detangling brush, or your fingers to gently detangle your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up, ensuring each strand is free of knots and tangles.

Step 3: Section Your Hair

Divide your hair into manageable sections, especially if it's thick or long, using section clips to keep them separated.

Step 4: Apply Curl Defining Crème Gel

For each section of damp hair, use a continuous spray bottle if necessary to ensure proper moisture. If you have fine hair, a small pea size amount of Lusid Curl Defining Crème Gel will suffice, while those with thick or long hair can use a bit more, starting with a 50-cent coin-sized amount. Apply the product evenly through the section of hair, taking care not to use too much, as excess product can interfere with your natural curl pattern, leading to less defined curls and potential frizz.

Step 5: Twist Your Hair

Twist small sections of hair, about 1-2 inches wide, starting at the roots and working your way to the ends. Continue adding hair from the section to the twist and secure the twist by twirling it around your finger.

Step 6: Repeat

Consistently follow the twisting process for all sections of your hair, ensuring that each twist is uniform in size and direction to achieve beautifully defined curls.

Step 7: Plop and Diffuse or Air Dry

Gently plop your hair using a T-shirt or microfiber towel to help your product-covered hair form more defined and uniform curls while reducing frizz. After plopping for 10-20 minutes, either air dry your hair naturally or, to expedite drying, use a diffuser on your hair dryer with low heat and low-speed settings while avoiding unnecessary contact with your curls to maintain their definition and minimize frizz.

Step 8: Enhance Your Curl Definition - Scrunch with Lusid Smoothing Serum

After your hair is completely dry, use Lusid Smoothing Serum to hold and enhance your curl definition. Apply the serum by gently scrunching your hair upwards to maintain and accentuate your beautifully defined curls.

By following these steps and incorporating twisting into your hair care routine, you can achieve more defined and bouncy curls. Experiment with different twisting techniques to find what works best for your unique hair type and desired curl pattern.
