Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

About refreshing my curls, you say to smooth your hands over my hair. Can't I just use a spray bottle? Or a spray bottle and then shake my hair?
You can use a spray bottle, but after spraying, you should still smooth your hands through your hair. If you just spray without smoothing, the mist hits all your strands of hair unevenly, and without smoothing your hands over your curls (or twirling your doodles), your hair could frizz up as each piece of hair reacts differently to the varying amounts of mist that fell on it.

When you smooth your hands over your hair, it evenly distributes the moisture, so your hair reacts evenly. This keeps your curls nicely defined, and cuts down on frizzing.

But if you are wanting big hair with less defined curls, you can absolutely just spray it (or spray and shake). It depends on what you are wanting.
