Creating a head full of beautiful curls with your kinky hair is not hard. The natural curl pattern which is already present in your tresses turn the process into a matter of merely enhancing what nature already blessed you with. Even without chemical processing, it is possible to achieve curls with your natural kinky hair texture.

Things You'll Need


Wash your hair with a shampoo that focuses on moisturizing and detangling. Clean hair, free of dirt and product residue will hold curls better and look better. Do not use conditioner on nights when you intend to set curls in your hair. The products used in later steps will serve to condition your hair.

Apply moisturizer after washing.. Kinky hair texture requires moisture to thrive, grown, and look its best. Not all kinky hair is the same, and you may need more or less moisture than someone with a similar hair texture. Look for water-based moisturizing sprays, lotions, or natural oil products such as kemi oil, jojoba, or tea tree oil.

Twist your hair with setting lotion before bed. Unravel in the morning for a beautiful set of natural curls. The size of your twists is dependent upon the size of curls you want to generate. Section off your hair, add a spritz of setting lotion, and begin twisting until the twist in your hand secures itself against your head.

Use bendy rollers if the twisting method does not work for you. If the curl pattern achieved from twisting is not sufficient for you, rollers can produce a more pronounced curl shape. Use smaller rollers for smaller, tighter curls, and larger ones for bouncier, looser curls. These curlers look like little hot dogs. Section your hair into square plots on your scalp and spritz with setting lotion. Slightly pull the hair, place a roller at the tip of the section, and roll the curler up toward your scalp. These rollers are made to hold themselves in place by you simply bending them in half and criss-crossing the ends over one another.

Tie your hair up with a satin scarf at night. The scarf will hold twists and curlers in place while you sleep, while also reducing friction from your pillowcase or covers which can leave hair fuzzy or cause breakage.
