Salon Secret

The online destination for all things hair.

The site showcases stylists’ professional expertise and promotes the latest industry innovations. Through smart, conversational content, Salon Secret brings stylists to their clients in a new way.

Embracing the ‘puff’ doesn’t mean you have to commit to a full-on afro, instead, there are nifty little ways to achieve a bit of volume, and in half the amount of time. Hair blogger Miriam Maulana shows us how to successfully achieve those curly cakes for a look that’s both unique and one that celebrates natural hair.


Get styling now:

1 Wash and condition your hair using Dark and Lovely Au Natural Moisture-Replenishing Shampoo and Dark and Lovely Au Natural Knot-Out Conditioner.

2 Next, section your hair into rows before applying Dark and Lovely Au Natural Afro Moisturizing Butter to help with styling.

3 Section off small squares of your hair and twirl into coils. Repeat this process over the whole head.

4 Once this is complete, allow your hair to dry completely.

5 Now you’re ready to unravel your coils. Comb them out until you achieve your desired volume.
