SI Swim Search finalist Jamea Lynee is “goals” in many ways, gorgeous hair included. After seeing Jamea's recent Instagram selfie, I felt compelled to get her secrets for bouncy beautiful curls to share with everyone. The people need to know!

She admits that curly hair is a lot to deal with and notes that everyone has to figure out their own routine and what products work for them.

“I only need to wash my hair once a week. And let’s be honest, the dirtier the hair the better it looks,” she says. (That's a statement I can get behind.) “Shampoos and conditioners that are moisturizing and hydrating are key to keeping curls healthy. I massage my scalp with shampoo to decrease tangling, then use a Denman detangling brush while the conditioner is in. You should always detangle with a conditioner! This tip is your best friend.”
“I like to let my hair air-dry. Wrapping my hair up in a soft cotton T-shirt to soak up most of the water works best for me. Once it’s dry, it’s all about the pick comb. It's a serious necessity to achieve big hair without brushing out all of the curls and having them look like a big bush! I have my ends trimmed monthly as well to keep them fresh.”
“I do a deep conditioning treatment every other week. I also use leave in conditioners while my hair is in a bun to get some extra hydration.”
