Changing your hair parting can make such a huge difference to your look — but it’s easier said than done when you have curly hair. Sure, parting your curly hair in the shower with a wide-toothed comb or while it’s damp is easy, but have you ever thought about parting your curly hair after it dried down?

01. Use a diffuser to dry your hair

If you don’t want your hair to remain partially wet, dry it with a diffuser after flipping your hair upside down and from one side to the other. This way, you can just easily move your curls around with your fingers and also reduces frizziness.

02. Do a zig-zag parting 

If you have curly hair, parting it straight down the middle make it look flat a top, thanks to curls weighing your hair down. So, while changing your part, start with the side and go diagonally towards the centre of your ahead. Lay the curls that way for added volume and natural hold. Take a little bit of leave-in conditioner on your fingers to smooth out any frizz and to break up stubborn curls at the end.

03. Use a tail comb for a neat part

Prep your hair with the TIGI Bed Head On The Rebound Curl Recall Cream before attempting a neat part. Twist your curls with the product on your fingers. Then, with the help of a tail comb, follow the part line slowly; separating full curls without breaking them up.
