First I have to wet my hair, because I can't get a brush through it if it's dry. So I wet it, brush it to get the tangles, comb it to part it and enhance the curls, apply a curling cream to hold the curls, blow dry it from the bottom to make it more volumized (even though it has a lot of volume already, i like the "big" look), then put a small amout of hairspray in. this would look horrible if i didn't have layers, but i do, so it looks good. all this takes about, uhh, probably half an hour to forty minutes. i know it's long, but otherwise, my hair is completely out of control and horrible. that's what you get for being a girl, haha.
