"Routine for curly hair:

I wash my head every four to eight days, depending on the dryness of my hair. I wash my hair with shea butter moisture retention shampoo, then untangle it in the shower with a pimple brush with the corresponding conditioner.

After the shower (when my hair is wet), I use the no-rinse hair care product that helps strengthen the hair and a quarter of a product that gives volume. I use the rake method to apply these products.

I lightly oil my scalp with a mixture of argan oil, jojoba oil and tea tree oil.

I use the diffuser on the roots and dry the tips in the open air. Then, I shake my hair and ruffle it with my hands when it is dry!

I use a spray bottle to spray my hair with a mixture of water and rose water throughout the week to keep it fresh." © j4de-mp4 / Reddit

2. "The day of the curly cup is the best day!"

"To be honest, I didn't care much about the shampoo or mask to use for my hair before, so I just washed them with a shampoo! In addition, I did not dry them after washing, they could take up to an hour to dry, but then they were more beautiful than if I used a towel or a hair dryer! Now, I use an anti-dandruff shampoo because my skin is very dry, and an aloe vera mask! I don't dry my hair either. Two photos a year apart!" © MeaningAdventurous55 / Reddit

4. "It took me 10 years to learn how to take on my Asian curls"

"I wash my hair in the evening, sometimes with shampoo. I then apply a lot of conditioners, then rinse them. In the morning, I usually wet my hair, crumple it and dry it a little by tapping, then apply curling gel. I wait for them to dry a little, then I apply gel to fix the hair while I wrinkle and twist it. I use this gel, because my hair quickly loses its style if I use the simple ordinary gel, especially when it's windy." © curlythrowthrow / Reddit

I can see that my curls have lost their extreme elasticity, but I had prepared for it and I will continue to apply my protein and revitalizing treatments as I have always done to help them. I can't wait to see where this process will take me." © poetfraud / Reddit

"During cool days, I spray water mixed with a detangler on my hair in the morning, and let it dry in the open air. I tend to tie my hair for work.

In the shower, I untangle my hair with my fingers, then apply the conditioner. I rinse completely and then, on wet hair, I apply a small amount of cream, followed by the curl activator and 1.5 cm in diameter of gel. I extw the excess water, let it rest for 20 minutes, then use the diffuser." © SuperfluousTrebuchet / Reddit
