Curly Hair Care Tips
Many people with curly hair have a love hate relationship with their hair. While curly hair boasts texture, it can also be the prime culprit for frizz. Because of this, many curly haired women reach for the hair straighteners in seek for smooth, frizz-free hair thus causing heat damage to their tresses. Although it may be daunting for curly haired women to put down the straighteners, we think you should embrace your curls. To get you on your way, have a look below at some top tips for tackling the frizz and caring for curly hair. It is essential for people with curly hair to steer clear of shampoo with sulfate in it. Sulfates are found in most shampoos and even detergents. They are too harsh for curly hair as they strip it of lubrication. People with curly hair need a sulfate-free shampoo that is moisturising. Ensure that you don’t scrub your hair and instead gently massage in circular motions focusing on your scalp, as the shampoo will run through your curls during your rinse. It is so important to detangle your hair thoroughly. To do this successfully, ensure that you do it in the shower after you’ve applied conditioner. Before you rinse the conditioner, comb through your hair gently with your fingers and a wide tooth comb, then rinse. Keeping your hair conditioned is essential, whether it be with leave-in conditioning products or hair milks. This will keep your curls hydrated and help to eliminate frizz. Bumble and Bumble Defrizz serum is a great product to try! To dry your hair, using a diffuser is crucial for people with curly hair. It adds volume and dries the hair evenly without disrupting your curls. Allow you hair to dry about 75% naturally, before you use your hairdryer. Apply a styling product and using your fingers to dry your hair, ensuring the hairdryer is on a cool setting, so as to prevent heat damage. Be careful not to over dry, as over drying causes frizziness. Satin pillowcases are not only beneficial for our skin, they’re also good for curly hair. As satin pillowcases are smooth and soft, making sure that there is less friction on your curls and maintaining your pretty curls!
