You wake up and look in the mirror to find your hair sticking up in all direction, your curls going everywhere and there’s a poof. Yeah, most of us have at least some degree of this. We can’t all have pin straight hair, and honestly that would get quite boring! So, if you have curly hair, hold on because your time is coming! Curls and wavey hair is back in! Yay! However, for those of you with straight flat hair, don’t worry. There are so many ways to get curls into your hair! Just wait, a post on that is on the way!
Follow these tips and tricks to make your mane, a little more manageable.
DO NOT TOWL DRY! I know, I’m guilt of doing the turban twist after I get out of the shower too. However, the towel makes your hair brake and therefore gets frizzier and more fly aways. Go for drying your hair with an old t-shirt instead!
Do not brush your hair when wet. Instead gently go through it with a wide tooth comb. Again, les fly aways and frizz! Also, if you must pull hair back, don’t tie hair back while it’s still wet or use rubber bands, which can snag or pull hair
Invest in a good curl product. There are so many out there to try. I can’t really recommend any to you because what works in my hair, might not work in yours. So go out there and get experimenting! Let us know what you find and what you like! You might see it in another post!
Use a good conditioner and shampoo. Sounds simple right? But, some stylists suggest not even using shampoo when you wash your hair! If you can’t bear breaking up with your shampoo, then pick a shampoo that is made specifically for curly hair. Bumble and Bumble and Rusk are two great brands made for curly hair. However, if you are on a budget, try L’Oréal or John Frieda. Even better: Avocado is great for conditioning hair. Mix it with a spoonful of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and let it sit for a half an hour.
Get regular trims. Curly hair has low porosity, which means that it doesn’t absorb as much water, and it's dryer. That means, your hair will get more split ends and breakage. So make sure you get a trim every 6 to 8 weeks. Keeping your hair healthy will avoid any worse splitting!
