Curly girl Wet set, No heat Styling required!

Curly girls suffer from the frizzy hair syndrome, which is why we tend to heat style our hair all winter. All this heat styling eventually leads to more frizz which then leads to more heat styling-ahh I’m tired thinking about the cycle we are on.  Well if you are ready to stop and put down the blow dryer curling wand and flat iron, but still want to tame those wild frizzy curls then listen up.  Let us give wet setting a go! A wet what? A wet set, that you don’t have to do anything with but go to bed with! Wash and set your hair at night go to bed, wake up do your makeup and drink your coffee, take down your set and viola that’s all!
