Tip No. 2: Keep it dirty
1. Start with dry hair. Apply a bit of dry shampoo to your roots to give your hair extra lift and staying power, says Moticka. Try Got2B Rockin’ It Dry Shampoo, $5.30.
2. Next, mist your hair from roots to ends with a heat protectant to guard against damage.
3. Finally, apply a strong-hold mousse to your entire head to define your curls (try L’Oreal Upward Spiral Springing Curls Defining Mousse, $4.99). Let it dry completely.
