1. Microfiber Towel or T-Shirt: Instead of using a regular towel, which can cause friction and frizz, opt for a microfiber towel or an old cotton T-shirt to gently blot excess water from your hair. Avoid rubbing or wringing, as this can disrupt the curl pattern and cause frizz.

2. Plopping: Plopping is a popular technique for enhancing curl definition and reducing frizz. After applying styling products to damp hair, lay a microfiber towel or T-shirt flat on a surface and flip your hair over onto it.

3. Diffusing: Using a diffuser attachment on your hair dryer can help speed up the drying process while minimizing frizz. Set your dryer to a low or medium heat setting and gently cup sections of your hair in the diffuser, scrunching upward

4. Air Drying: Letting your hair air dry is a gentle option for drying curly hair, although it may take longer than using a diffuser. To prevent excess frizz, avoid touching your hair as it dries and allow your curls to set naturally.

5. Pineappling: Pineappling is a technique used to preserve curls and reduce friction while sleeping. Gather your hair into a loose, high ponytail on the top of your head, securing it with a scrunchie or hair-friendly elastic.

6. Wet-Set Techniques: Wet-setting involves applying styling products to damp hair and setting the curls using techniques like twisting, braiding, or finger coiling. Allow your hair to air dry or use a diffuser to speed up the drying process.
