Now grab a section of hair. The smaller the section the tighter the curl.

Twist the section of hair as if you were doing a bun and wrap the hair around itself. You can also secure it with a bobby pin.

It looks more natural if you don't section the hair into straight parts.

At this point you can choose to spray a setting spray or some sort of holding spray. Personally, I usually don't but sometimes I lightly mist it with water.

I cover mine with a satin bonnet overnight. I've left them in for just 3hours and the curls were still extremely bouncy. Whatever your preference 😁

TIME FOR THE REVEAL 👏! When you untwist the knots, you can apply a little coconut oil to your fingertips to cut down on frizz. Then separate the curls for a more voluminous look.
