Curls look fab, but maintaining them is not as easy as maintaining poker straight hair. You must have faced this challenge, right? Don’t fret over your curls. Here are some basic tips which will help you to manage those complicated curls. Read on and go flaunt your curls!
Using your regular comb with narrow teeth will leave your curls frizzy and static. Though you get those wide-teeth combs in market, but if you don’t comb properly, it won’t help. What you need to do is, comb your hair before washing and brush with a wide set comb while your curls are still damp.
Curly hair need to be washed 2-3 times a week. Not more than that. The problem with curly hair is that you really need to preserve the natural oil present in your hair. Use a shampoo that helps in hydrating and leaves the moisture intact.
Conditioning is an absolute must. At times, it’s even alright to not use any shampoo, just a mild conditioner. It makes hair soft without taking away the essential oils. Conditioning works best when you scrunge your hair post application and then rinse.
Most people would say blow-drying is a good option. But the best way to dry curls is just let them be. Blow-drying will make hair look frizzy. If you are rushing somewhere, just tie a towel and blow dry from a distance.
This is an important aspect. You need to moisturise your curls. The more you moisturise, the more awesome they will look. Oil your hair twice a week.
