Back to Ancient Times

In ancient civilizations, women coloured their hair, curled it, pinned it up and often elaborately dressed in special ways. They used to curl and wave using wet clay, dry it in the sun and then comb out, or by preparing a jelly suspension made from quince seeds soaked in water or curling tongs of various kinds.

My hair is quite thin, frizzy, light and curly. To avoid it going flat the products that are heavy in nature like gels and waxes need not be  used. A good serum is always desirable for a shiny finish.

Also take in consideration the environment you are living in. If you live in a humid place go for product that can resist that condition.
