6. Brushes Begone
A hairbrush is not a curly-haired girl’s friend. Instead of brushing out tangles, saturate your hair with conditioner while in the shower and use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to de-tangle.

7. Set While Wet
According to StyleList, “The key to getting great curls is to set the curl pattern while your hair is damp. It’s best to avoid completely combing through your hair. Instead set your part, then comb through as little hair as possible at the crown to have the hair lay as you want it.”

8. Less Shampoo
Shampoo may be the culprit behind your fuzzy looking curls. Consider switching to a gentle product like DevaCurl No-Poo or Low-Poo. Shampoo no more than 2-3 times a week, just use conditioner in the shower to freshen up.
