The Honeycomb Method™: A Easy, Natural Way to Moisturize & Define Coarse Hair

I know it seems like everyone is creating a method to the ultimate curl but I decided to share my low maintenance regimen that focuses on moisturizing and thusly defining coarse hair. Everyone has a natural curl pattern. Yes, EVERYONE. So one of the results will be tighter curls or coils but more importantly it keeps your hair moisturized and healthy and is low maintenance! This regimen keeps your hair healthy in two ways: 1) Keeps your scalp clean 2) Draws moisture because of the heavy use of honey, a humectant.

Thus the name, The Honeycomb Method™: Puff Puff Poof’s low maintenance, moisturizing, defining and natural method for coarse hair.

*Note: I prefer big hair so this method gives some definition but still allows for volume
