How to Get Curly Hair for Men Who Don’t Have the Time

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 conditioner your hair, especially with so many awesome 2-in-1 options out there. Jump in the shower and wash and condition with the 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 curly and clean strands.

2. Apply product.

One pump of the Dove Style + Care Curls Defining Mousse is all you need to get your curls going. A lightweight product that still does its job, 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 as you create texture to your curly hair. As it dries, your curls will become more defined by the mousse and settle into those coveted perfectly coiled strands. Add some extra security with a few sprays of the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)Done Hairspray before you hit the road as you proudly wear your curls. The holidays are coming and as far as your hairstyle goes, you’re all set.
