The best time to curl your hair is when the hair is neither too clean nor oily. Going one to two days without washing provides the best amount of ‘dirt' for the curl to hold on to, but still isn't so oily it'll slide right out. If you need to curl your hair, but feel it might be a little too dirty or to clean, a hair gel will be your best friend. If your hair seems too oily, the alcohol in the gel will dry up some oils, letting the curl hold. If your hair is too clean, it will coat the hair with a film, mocking a bit of dirt, and the curl will hold better.
