Some hair types are harder to style than others. Curly hair is one of the hardest, but it is not impossible to style it and make it look good. With a few tips and tricks, you can be on your way to having beautiful looking hair.
One of the most important parts of hair styling, especially with curly hair, is washing and conditioning. Curly hair is more sensitive than other hair types and is more susceptible to over-washing. To combat this, use a gentle shampoo and don’t shampoo every day if you can avoid it. Conditioners can weigh down hair, and that affects curly hair more than other hair types. Using a light conditioner and only using enough to do the trick will help keep your hair from looking greasy and heavy. Deep conditioners are also very helpful for controlling frizz, making styling easier. They can be used once a week and moisturize the hair to keep it smooth.
Another thing to keep in mind when styling curly hair is to go with the flow. Going natural is a much easier and less time consuming method than trying to make hair do the opposite of what it is naturally. One of the best ways to enhance your curls is to scrunch it with a little bit of gel or gel spray. It usually turns out better if you gel and scrunch in sections while it’s still wet. If it’s really humid outside, it’s easiest not to try to straighten it.
There’s a good chance you’ll waste the time straightening it just to walk outside and it suddenly frizz and poof. Not only that, but it’ll help keep your hair looking and feeling healthy, which will also save money on repairing the heat damage.
Blow drying can be equally damaging on hair, so to help diffuse this problem, air-dry hair for a while before bringing out the blow dryer. Brushing your hair regularly is also great for distributing natural oils and making hair more manageable. Styling curly hair is possible and can even be easy and fun with a little know-how and a bit of practice. Work with your hair and your hair will work with you.
