How curly is your hair? My curly haired friend likes this website for styling tips: http://www.naturallycurly.com/ My own hair is long and wavy, and I struggle not to straighten it, just for ease of management. I'm really not an expert, because until rcently, all I did was just straighten it. However, a diffuser is a godsend, for me. If I'm short on time, I've recently taken to using some mouse/wavy spray and drying it with a diffuser, and it looks relatively decent. If it's wavy/curly, it's best not to use a brush.
