Don’t Use It On Straight Hair
Hair sponges won’t work on straight hair. It’s all a part of the design. As mentioned previously, the holes in the design are what help create these curls. Whether you have natural curls, kinks, or coils, the holes are going to help define the natural shape of your hair.
It’s best when done on moisturized, slightly damp hair that has been fully detangled so the sponge can move easily through your hair. … Next, remove your hair’s natural curl definition with a wide bristle brush, like a paddle brush, a pick, or a wide-toothed comb to avoid snagging hair during the coiling process.
