Normally straighten your hair?
Wear it curly
To keep springy curls like these soft (but still defined), comb a cocktail of rinse-out conditioner (a half-dollar-size dollop) and gel (just a dime-size squirt) through wet hair and leave it in while hair air-dries.

Why the change will do you good: Embracing your natural texture and volume gives you a captivating new feature. "People will be drawn as much to your lush hair as they are to your eyes or your cheekbones or your mouth," says Hidalgo. A new look, a (temporarily) new you.
