- If the hair is damp during the “take down”, there will be frizz. Make sure the knots are completely dry.
- To release the knots, it’s better to find the ends, then gently unwrap in the opposite direction of the wound coil. (My hair isn’t long, so I just tug & pull to release the knots. If you do this, please note: it creates frizz.)
- For a more defined look, don’t comb/pick/tease the hair past the roots. Do, for a more natural look.
- Step 3 is completely optional.
