Do you still get frizz after styling? Or maybe you struggle with frizz in general?  The Smaster’s method encourages better definition for both waves and curls. Here’s what you need to know:

The Method

You apply all your products and diffuse/air-dry until your hair is half dry.

Remember, for medium porosity or high porosity hair, use a lot of water while you style. This means you need to apply products on soaking wet hair. The water is your hero! Water will bind the product to your hair and give you that pump-shiny-defined curls you may want!

once your hair is about 50-60% dry (its juts an estimate, go figure!)  you wet your palms with water either from your sink or use a flairosol bottle to spray and apply a little bit of your gel, curling custard or jelly.

The wet palms is to help your product work better (because most products always need water to do their thang!)

So apply your product on your semi-dry hair with praying hands method and scrunch gently. Then you diffuse until fully dry or just air dry.

The way you apply any product for the smasters method is very, very different from how you apply your normal gels, ok?

Here is my result after #Smasters with Kinky Curly Curling Custard.



Take a very little product and rub it on your WET palms together and use that to coat each section with praying hands method. Scrunch gently.

If you follow the Smaster’s Technique since you need only a little gel to coat your hair, it clumps well and then the diffuser will help you get even better definition.

  1. Hi Liz. Thanks for the articles! One question about the this method. Do we use gel while styling the soaking wet hair before drying it half way to do this method? Or do we only apply leave in and curl creams do sleep hair and then after its half way dry only then apply gel/custard/jelly?
