How do I smooth my hair?
When you wake up in the morning, after getting caught in the rain, or after a workout, it's great to smooth your hair to refresh all your pretty curls. This technique works to smooth any frizzies between washings and combings: Wet your hands, and add a dime-size drop of a combing conditioner (or more, depending on how fuzzy your hair is), rub that between your hands. Then smooth your wet hands over your hair to smooth out any fuzz on your hair line and refresh your curls there.

You might need to do this a few times (adding more water and conditioner each time). Often this will refresh your whole head, making your curls spring back as they dry, and this keeps them more defined, and causes no damage, and moisturizes them. Then, wet your hands again, add more conditioner to them, and smooth over your ends to refresh all your curls.

If you find you have fuzzy areas, wet your hands again, add more conditioner, and if needed, go through your hair, and find fuzzy parts. Start at the root of the fuzzy curl/section, and smooth the curl by running your wet conditioner-fingers up to the tips a few times, helping meld the curl together instead of picking it apart. This helps snap it back into a curl instead of fuzz, and again, this causes no damage, and moisturizes it. It's best to use a good conditioner for this. Do this until all or the majority of fuzzy spots are gone, or you have gotten the even look you like.

Doing this every morning when you get up, and after any sort of wet activity, should help your hair stay frizz-free all week, until the next time to wash, condition, comb and define your beautiful curls.
