After a conversation with Giselle, our curly-haired copy editor, about the trials and tribulations she’s been through with her strands, I felt inspired. She talked about how she consistently wears a slicked-back bun because she doesn’t know the proper way to brush, blow-dry, and style her textured hair. That’s exactly what I’m here for, I thought as I quickly pitched the idea. Come to think of it, I didn’t know if I was using the correct brushes for my curls either.

In an effort to make us all curl experts and improve the health of our hair in the process, I spoke with a slew of hairstylists on that very subject. First, you’ll have to identify if your hair is fine or thick, and then you’ll need to take a look at our graphic to find which curl type most closely matches yours. Basically, this the is the choose your own adventure part of the program. Keep scrolling to begin.
