How to Get the Juiciest Curl Clumps with the Bowl Method

Are you ready to unlock the secret to beautifully defined waves and curls? Look no further! Today, we're diving deep into the world of curl clumps—the key to achieving that coveted frizz-free look.

Step 1: Prep Your Bowl

Grab a large bowl—big enough to fit all your hair—and take it to the shower. It's time to get clumping!

Step 2: Shampoo

Shampoo your hair as usual. You'll notice it's still a bit tangled with some "wet frizz," but don't worry—that's about to change!

Step 3: Condition

Apply conditioner to your hair, ensuring it's thoroughly coated. Do not rinse it out just yet.

Step 4: Dip and Squish

Dip your conditioned hair into the bowl of water, ensuring every strand gets submerged. Now, it's time to "squish to condish"! Scrunch your hair to get that satisfying squelchy sound.

Step 5: Detangle

With the conditioner and water providing slip, detangle your hair using your fingers or a wide-tooth comb.

Step 6: More Conditioner?

If your hair is particularly dry, add more conditioner to the lengths and ends before repeating the bowl dunk and hair scrunching.

Step 7: Rinse

Fully rinse out the conditioner under the shower, allowing your hair to retain just the right amount of hydration.

Step 8: Styling

Apply a few pumps of curl custard to your hair, distributing it evenly with praying hands. Shake your hair from side to side to encourage defined clumps, then scrunch away!

Step 9: Flip and Style

For maximum volume, keep your hair upside down during styling. However, for the best results, flip it back the right way up towards the end of your routine. Dip your hair from side to side back into the bowl to remove any wonky bits, then continue scrunching.

Step 10: Wet Plop

Wet plop your hair by wrapping it in a jersey towel or microfiber towel for up to 20 minutes to allow your curls to set.

Step 11: Diffuse

Speed up the drying process and add volume by diffusing your hair until it's about 80% dry.

Step 12: Scrunch Out the Crunch

Finally, scrunch out the crunch from the curl custard to reveal soft, bouncy, super-hydrated curls with juicy clumps!

Congratulations! You've mastered the art of curl clumping. Get ready to flaunt those gorgeous, defined waves and curls like never before! 🌀✨
