How-To: Expanded Texture
Step 1: Shampoo and condition the hair to prep it. After rinsing the hair, cover it with a plastic cap. Start at the nape of the neck with a horizontal section, keeping the rest of the hair in the cap, and saturate the section with water and a leave-in conditioner. Use a finishing brush to ensure the product is distributed evenly.
Step 2: Apply a liberal amount of a styling product for curly hair.
Step 3: Scrunch the product into the hair and then gently separate the curls for added definition.
Step 4: Repeat steps 1-3 on the remaining sections of the hair.
Step 5: Diffuse the hair on high heat and low airspeed. To lock in the curl pattern, start diffusing the hair with the head in an upright position. Once the curls are set, finish diffusing by moving head forward, backward and side to side to add volume.
