    I have the finest, thinest hair and I bought the airwrap thinking it I could get it to hold a curl.. I could hold a curl for 10 mins maximum and then fall flat. I have bought and tried so many products. So I thought I would try the airdry cream. I used the airwrap and pinned the curls for 20 mins and OMG.. my hair was soft, shiny, bouncy and most importantly, something that I have not be able to achieve since having the airwrap was curls, which lasted me all night and looked amazing. Thank you @Jonathan Van Ness ❤❤❤

    What a lovely guy you are – I never have this much fun at my hairdressers – they don't even talk to me sometimes!! Loved this tutorial – please do more on thin fine hair – it is so difficult for an ordinary mortal to style this type of hair. I am in the UK and often can't find the same hair styling products but I think your brand has now come to the UK – I think I saw you on a video with Sali Hughes?

    I do that a lot with the blow dryer. For the lower section, as my hair is straight, sometimes I let it natural because I don't like much volume, but when I want some texture without volune I use the straightener exactly like that. The middle section I usually do nothing and the top section I use the iron curler but in a diferent way, I don't clip the hair and twist it, I just roll sections of the hair over it for a more natural texture just for a few seconds, each one to a diferent direction.

    JVN you need to send instructions with your sample of air dry cream! I got some with a shampoo order a few months ago and I gave it away to goodwill because I didn't know what to do with it and I have poker straight hair and all the info I found online said it was for curly hair! My stylist gave me a new cut and beach waves yesterday though and now I'm kicking myself for getting rid of it! 🤣😭

    I have natural frizzy dry wavy hair. Would using your air dry cream help to tame the frizz? I’m thinking to air dry half way and rough dry while twisting my hair to 90% dry and leave it. Would that work.

    It’s so fun to see someone with not much natural texture get texture from a technique. Meanwhile I’m over here with mine like “girl you need to calm down”.

    This is so helpful, I bought a nice curling iron and don’t know how to use it! This gives me so much more encouragement to practice. My hair doesn’t hold a curl and I couldn’t figure out why until now.
