Step 3: Use the “rake and shake” method
To start, divide hair into four sections: two sections on each side of your head. Take one section at a time and “rake” a nickel-sized dollop of styling lotion through it with your fingers (try Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Defining Creme, $27).
After you apply the product on each section, hold it by the ends and gently “shake” your hair to bring out the natural curl in your hair. Make sure you do this while your hair is still damp, or the curls will lose their shape.
