THE DISCOVERY EDIT By Johanna Ferreira
If you have naturally textured hair, chances are your IG feeds are filled with curly girls showing off petal soft, perfectly defined, and frizz-free curls. But let’s get real for a second: As effortless as they may appear, we all know that to get your waves, ringlets, or coils just right, you don’t just wake up like that. Achieving bouncy, hydrated and healthy tresses takes tips, techniques, and the right combination of products that don’t just happen with a curl cream or style finisher. It actually all begins with your hair care routine.
