5 Curly Hair Tips
Stand out from the sea of straight hairstyles by embracing your curly hair! There’s no need to break the bank with hair salon products and hair tools, either. Here, 5 tips that will make it easier to get curly hair that’s healthy, frizz-free and easy to maintain.
Washing Too Frequently
In other words, you should probably refrain from shampooing your hair every day. It’s recommended that curly hair types keep the shampooing to a minimum. For the best results, try cleaning it just once or twice a week. To help seal in moisture you can try co-washing with our Black Coffee Co-Wash. Co-washing is great because it provides a conditioning treatment for your hair while also giving it a mild cleanse.
Air-drying your hair whenever possible is typically the best choice for curly-haired girls but in the cooler months using a diffuser is a must. When using a diffuser be sure to attach it onto your blow dryer to help limit the amount of direct heat and forceful air hitting your strands. The benefits of using a diffuser are numerous. It can help you reduce frizz, strengthen the cuticle, dries the hair quickly, define curls, and the heat helps your hair better absorb product.
Use a Leave-in Conditioner
Textured hair needs long-lasting moisture and protection. Leave-in conditioners are often applied to further hydrate hair strands as they dry. When used on curly or coily hair, it can also help make curls bouncier and help control frizz. It’s highly recommended that you invest in a lightweight leave-in conditioner like our Lavender Milk Leave-in Conditioner.
Sulfates are “good” in the sense that they make shampooing far more effective. However, they’re bad in the sense that they strip and dehydrate your strands, causing them to become brittle and frizzy. When it comes to textured hair, you want to look for moisture-based products that gently nourish your strands without stripping them of their natural oils like our Melon Honey Shampoo.
Investing in a highly moisturizing product is one of the first things the Curly Girl Method preaches. It is important to moisturize and hydrate your curls daily. This is because moisture is a massive element in creating gorgeous, healthy, frizz-free curls. A poor styling product may cause your cuticle to rough up, causing your curls to become frizzy and undefined. We recommend using our Curlada Moisturizing Cream to give your coils extra hydration in between wash days.
