Ringlet Curls

Q: I have fairly ringlet curls, which can look frizzy without the right kind of styling. Can you suggest any product that will give me the surf hair relaxed curl without frizzing my hair?
A: The key to getting smooth, relaxed curls is going to be keeping your hair well-conditioned. I recommend using a shampoo and conditioner formula designed for smooth and silky hair, followed by a leave-in conditioner and anti-frizz serum on the hair while it is still damp.
The hair can then be wrapped in a turban and left to dry naturally or blown-dry using a diffuser attachment on the dryer until the hair is mostly - but not fully - dry. Turban drying the hair is a technique that many women with curly hair prefer because the turban wicks away the moisture from the hair and you can continue your grooming while the hair dries.
If you need additional hold for your curls, you can add styling products to the hair before turbaning the hair. For soft hold, I recommend using a spray gel or mousse.
