How to take care of curly hair
It’s very important to take care of curly hair properly as they prone to dry, rough and frizzy easily, as weather changes your hairs also change its texture so it’s very important to know what they need and which product apply at which time. Below I reveal some techniques and secrets to taking care of your curly hair properly.
1. Choose best hair products for curly hair
Change your hair products every season, as everyone knows curly hairs are rough and frizzy so always choose a shampoo and conditioner which moisture and nourish your scalp and hairs. You can use sulfate free shampoos or you can use the product which is especially for curly hairs.
2. Leave in conditioner to style curly hair
If you have curly hairs like me then I know you spend lot of money on expensive products, but many of us don’t know that leave in conditioners plays a major role in styling and taking care of curly hair because it gives enough moisture to your hairs. Don’t worry if you don’t have leave in conditioner you can use your normal conditioner as well, at night apply your normal conditioner to all over your hairs except scalp, leave it overnight and wash off at the next morning, if you don’t want to leave it overnight then try to let it stay on your hair for at least half hour to get good result. Is it simple? Yes, it is after doing that you see a noticeable difference in your curls.
3. Try a curl enhancer for curly hair
To find the best curl enhancer product you have to experiment with different anti frizz serums and creams, I try lot of serums to smooth and define my curls but at the end I got only two serums which are all time my favorite these are john Frieda frizz ease extra strength serum and dove nourishing oil care vita oil serum I love them both, but first one is great more than dove. Apply two to three pumps of freshly shampoo hair from roots to tip, now start combing them with wide tooth comb this may cause some breakage but its normal, at the mean time you notice a visible change in your hair and also these serums and creams help you to enhance your curls in less time, after that coat your hair with curl enhancing gel and scrunch your hairs softly and your you are ready to go.
4. Distribute hair product correctly for curly hair
Many of us don’t know that whether we have curly hair or straight hair it’s very important to know how to distribute a hair product correctly, at this point I want to share a tips with all of you that many of hairstylists recommend us to brush hair regularly, but I recommend to all people who have curly hair don’t use brush as it makes your hair more frizzy, one thing one try to use less comb and don’t wash your hair more than twice a week. When I was in the shower it was very hard to spread shampoo and conditioner to all over my hair, sometimes I apply so much product, sometimes less, so it was challenging to apply right amount, so take a coin size shampoo and conditioner not more than that, rub your conditioner into your palms, then starting from the ends to the roots, after that take a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute the conditioner to your hair. You also can use it for shampoo and serum as well.
5. Airs dry your curly hair
Do you know that by using hair dryer or over rubbing your hair with towel damage your hair and also destroy the texture of curls, so the better option is let the air dry, I know many of us don’t have patience but believe me by drying your hair in air you not only save your money on heat protective protects but it’s good for overall health of hair, curly hair takes more time than silky straight hair because curly hairs are thicker. So if there is so occasion or you are in a hurry and no time for air drying then use a hair dryer with diffuser with the lowest setting, but remember don’t make it a habit.
6. Don’t touch your curly hairs
When you are noticing that after two or three hours your curly hair going to fall, look dull and frizzy, you know why? Because touching too much curly hair make them look down. After apply serums and hair products never ever touch your hair, style your hair when it is still little bit wet, then let them free, playing and styling the dry hair make them more frizzy and may be you face breakage as well. At the end of the day if you want to make your curls as fresh like in the morning just wet them a little bit, apply serum, curl cream or whatever you want just scrunch your hair a little bit and you are real to go. Its very important to know these tips if you are going to style your hair.
