Q: What about shrinkage?
A: We all hate shrinkage. We at Lit Curls avoid shrinkage in two ways:
- Use Lit Curls "Curl Weights" to weigh your hair down while drying
- We use an anti shrinkage blow drying technique that involves stretching the hair while blow drying it.
Both of these techniques are VERY EFFECTIVE. You can see both of these techniques demonstrated in our full product tutorial located on our home page.
Q: How many applications of the Lit Curls product do you get when you buy the kit?
A: It all depends on how long and/or thick your hair is. If you have short hair that is kind of thin, you may get as many as 10 or more applications of the product on your hair. If you have thick long hair you may get as few as 5 or 6 applications of the product on your hair. It all depends on how much hair you have. Remember you must cover all of your hair with the Lit Curls product when you apply it. You must use the product daily to maintain your hair.
Q: I read that you should wear a scarf at night because Lit Curls is greasy. Is this true?
A: Yes, a little. But not more then other hair products that contain natural oils that can rub off on your pillow case. Lit Curls can be a little messy depending on how your hair takes the product and how much product you apply. LIT CURLS IS NOT GREASY LIKE A JERRI CURL, or anything like that, but you must make sure you wear a scarf/bonnet or Lit Curls Curl keeper at night. Wear the Lit Curls "Curl Keeper" or some other bonnet to keep your hair protected from breakage while sleeping. When you wake up, remove your scarf and shake your hair a little and let your hair relax itself from being cooped up in a bonnet or scarf. Do this before styling or daily maintenance.
