“For Shampoo/ Conditioner, I use Love beauty and planet, then when I get out the shower while my hair is still wet, I use the Not Your Mother’s Hair Gel, next I put in Not Your Mother’s Mousse then I scrunch my hair up with my fingers. I do that until I think it looks presentable,” Hochmuth said. “I use Love beauty and planet shampoo/conditioner, and the Not You Mothers’s Moose,” Hochmuth said

Ingredients to stay away from: Mineral Oil- Mineral Oil can weigh your curls down. When using product that has Mineral Oil it builds up and dries out your hair.
Silicone- Silicone builds up on your hair and scalp. Silicon dries out your curls as well and makes your hair feel crunchy.

Shea Moisture Spray
Garnier Fructis oil and leave in Conditioner together
First, I brush out my wet hair then I immediately use all those products, starting with the leave in conditioner. I use my hand to rake it through my hair then I’ll finger curl my hair. Most likely ill plop it up with a cotton t shirt. I feel like adds more volume to the hair/ roots. Shea Moisture products leave in conditioner, Shea Moisture Curl enhancing smoothie, Shea Moisture Curling cream (only sometimes)

What’s your hair type?
The letters and numbers that go into a hair type dictates what you hair type is. For example if you have curly hair like Carlos you might be either 3a, 3b, or 3c hair type. But if you have straight hair like Uddom you’ll be more 1a, 1b, or 1c. Get it? it’s easy! Then if you have Wavy hair you’ll be 2a, 2b, or 2c. Lastly coily hair is 4a, 4b, 4c. Now that you know all this new information what hair type do you have?
