Rizos Curls Review: Interview With Founder Julissa Prado

What are your washday curl tips? 

My favorite washday curl tip is the 30/60/90 method. I have a tutorial video that helps demonstrate it, but this method is great for women and men who are still learning how much product to put in their hair and want to ensure they get their desired results. The idea is that, during the styling process, you add product to your hair little by little as it dries to ensure you don’t add too much product. Because once you do, there’s no going back, and your curls will be weighed down. You start out by adding as little Refresh & Detangle Spray ($20) and Curl Defining Cream ($22) as possible, staying away from your roots. Then, you begin to blow-dry with a diffuser. At 30% dry, you stop to analyze your results and only add more product to any areas that may need it. If the area needs more moisture, you add Refresh & Detangle Spray. If it needs definition, you add Curl Cream. You then continue to dry your hair. At 60%, you, again, stop, analyze, and only add product if needed, then again at 90% dry. I do this method in the beginning when I’m still learning how much I need to use because you definitely don’t want to add too much product.
