These are my Go to Clips for volume

Black Orchid diffuser
I was amazed at the price of this (so inexpensive). I was even more amazed at how well it works, and how beautifully it's packaged. You can rack up quite a tab when you're acquiring all the things for curls, and having this price point with this quality as an option is hella legit.

Deep dish diffuser
this has been my ride or die since 2009. 

Shower Filter might change your life 
if you don't own a shower filter, please get one right meow. it can remove almost all of the chlorine and all of the other minerals out of your water before it hits your hair. if you don't see a difference after using it, i mean, you will. you just will. Why are you still even reading this? 

Best Spray Gel for WAVY/SWAVY hair
if you are looking to help encourage your curls, you know the struggle is oh, so real. this stuff works. like, really works. it will dry crunchy. that's ok, you can scrunch it out with your hands to soften it or add a cast softener.

If you do this at home, you can do it hours before you plan to wash it - I sleep with it in my hair and wash it out with Loreal Professional Delicate Color Sulfate Free Shampoo the next morning. If you're a no-poo-er, I suggest using the Ouidad Cleansing Oil instead.  You can condition your hair as usual, or, for extra awesomeness, follow with an apple cider vinegar rinse  use up to half acv to half water, or try using 2 parts water to 1 part acv.  Let that site for at least 2 minutes, RINSE WELL.  Be SO careful not to get it in your eyes, it burns like a BITCH.
