Here are our 5 tools for styling curly hair:

1. Spray bottle

I don't know about you, but without any products, my hair gets dry in a matter of minutes. When applying products, you always want to make sure your hair ranges from damp to wet depending on your hair. Having a spray bottle for styling curly hair gets your hair wet and ready for product application.

2. Hair clips

No matter the length or density of your hair, sectioning your hair makes for a successful application. Using hair clips keeps large sections of hair out of the way while you focus your attention to a smaller area of hair.

3. Comb/detangling brush

Tangles are a big no-no when styling your hair. Before you wash-n-go or twist your hair, you want to smooth any tangles out of your hair. I like using either a comb that has both wide-tooth and fine-tooth in one or I like to use my detangle brush for styling my curly hair.

4. Microfiber towel

What I love most about using a microfiber towel over a terry cloth towel is that the microfiber towel is smaller and more light weight, making it easier to maneuver on your head over your shoulder etc. They're also more absorbent and help to blot water off of you making styling curly hair easier.

5. Wonder Curl products

This wouldn't be a Wonder Curl video without mentioning our products! Having the right products is just as importing as having the right tools when it comes to styling curly hair. You can have the best technique for styling your hair, but if your products don't work, it won't matter!
