In a world where no curl is created equal, it is important to find the technique that is perfect for you so wash day does not need to  be a grab bag of results! No one loves that moment once wash day is complete and you hold your breath hoping the results of a multi step process are exactly what you hoped for. Exploring washing and conditioning techniques, styling tips and viral hair care methods to find a curl care regime that  is as unique to you as your curls! 

What is the Bowl Method?

The Bowl Method is a curly conditioning and  styling method that promises to create clumps of curls by thinning out your styling product and allowing the power of water to pull your curls together. Popular for those with stringy and thin curls and waves, The Bowl Method dilutes the product in your hair with repeated dunks in a bowl of water and boasts its ability to add moisture and shine  to your hair. This is a process that requires some patience but if it produces the best curls of your life, I think its worth a shot!

How to do The Bowl Method:


💦Step 1:

Shampoo as usual with Rizos Curls Hydrating Shampoo. Add Rizos Curls Deep Conditioner and comb through your hair with a brush like our Rizos Curls Flexi Brush. Rinse out conditioner.


💦Step 2:
Apply leave-in conditioner like Rizos Curls Refresh & Detangle Spray and then add Rizos Curls Curl Defining Cream. Use prayer hands to smooth and follow with brush to ensure there are no tangles.


💦Step 3:
Fill a medium sized bowl with warm water.  Flip head so hair is hanging in front of you and brush to comb hair down ward, smoothing your hair. Dip your hair into the bowl, then remove hair letting water draining from hair go back into the bowl. Begin scrunching your hair upward, squeezing out the water and forming curl clumps.


💦Step 4:
Repeat this dunking and scrunching process four times total. Once with curls in front, then moving curls on each side of your head and a final time in front. Scrunch to remove excess water.


💦Step 5:
Scrunch out excess moisture with a microfiber towel or cotton t-shirt.


💦Step 6:
Scrunch in a product for extra hold like Rizos Curls Light Hold Gel. Diffuse on warm heat until dry.


💦Step 7:
Add a few drops of Rizos Curls Nourish Oil to hands and then scrunch out slight cast to break up clumps and add shine.

 Try this new curly technique to see if adding a "bowl o' moisture" to your parched curls & waves is worth adding to your curl care routine.

No curl is created equal, so definitely worth a try to see what you think for yourself!
