If your hair curls up shorter than you prefer. Try elongating products like Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding. Or you can blast your curls with nozzled dryer set on medium heat to temporary elongate your curl pattern.
To do this-bast your hair section by section. Aiming the nozzle from roots to mid-shaft. The result will be elongated curls without all the frizz from over manipulating it!
