How to Style Curly Asian Hair with a Wash ‘N Go Method Using Miss Jessie’s Multicultural Curls Cream and Clear Gel
One of the first products I purchased since beginning my curly Asian hair journey was the Miss Jessie’s Multicultural Curls Cream. Since then, I’ve added the Multicultural Curls Clear Gel into my beauty cabinet and have been playing around with which styling methods work best for both products on a solo or combined basis.
Today’s video tutorial includes utilizing the praying hands method to evenly distribute product all over four sections of hair then encouraging the curl by scrunching it with a 100% cotton t-shirt.
PS – you might notice that I’m using leave-in conditioner in this video, which is contradictory to what I mentioned about NOT using it in my curly hair journey plot twist story! Here’s why I’m using it now: I’ve recently moved to an entirely new county about an hour away from where I used to live in Pasadena, California (Los Angeles County). This area is known as the Inland Empire (Riverside County) and seems to be that much more drier compared to where I previously lived.
As a result, my hair craves serious moisture and refuses to curl if I don’t give it the proper balance. So far, I’m realizing my hair doesn’t like the use of oils in wet hair state compared to applying oils once my strands are dry (the exception is a styling product that contains oil such as the Multicultural Curls Cream used in this tutorial). I’m currently trying to figure out which works best to address the lack of moisture: more serious deep conditioning, possibly leaving in some of the deep conditioner on wash days, or co-washing more often, or using leave-in conditioners. Such a plot twist to my plot twist!
