Styling your curly hair doesn’t have to be the most time consuming thing you do this week.

1. Wash + condition your hair.

Curly hair maintenance all starts with clean hair. No matter how busy you are, you can always make time to wash and condition your hair, especially with so many awesome 2-in-1 options out there. Jump in the shower and wash with AXE White Label Night 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner. Using two products at the same time is a classic time-saving move and you’ll immediately be one step closer to clean, defined curls.

2. Apply your product.

One pump of Dove Style+Care Curls Defining Mousse is all you need to get your curls going. A lightweight product, this mousse will define your curls without giving you that greasy, crunchy look. Another plus to this  mousse is that it has a faintly citrusy smell, a.k.a it won’t distract with the carefully chosen scent of your cologne.

3. Air-dry.

Save your blowdrying skills for another day and simply let your hair air-dry. Help it along by scrunching your fingers throughout your hair to create some texture. The mousse helps give definition and structure to your curls as they dry. Give a your locks a bit more control with a tiny application of gel, like Dove Men+Care Control Gel, before you hit the road. The holidays are coming and as far as your hairstyle goes, you’re all set.
