Number of washes per week:
Washing your hair regularly seems to be a good idea to keep hair shining and clean, however we don’t realize that it strips natural oils from our hair and makes it dry. While this might seems alright for a person with straight hair, but it could be a troublesome for people with curly hair. Our advice for people with curly hair would be to wash your hair only couple of times in a week, using a good shampoo followed by a leave–in conditioner.
Not combing wet hair:
After hair wash, it’s always best to let your hair dry naturally, without combing it. While this is a standard rule that should be followed by everyone, it’s particularly important for women with curly hair because it avoids breakage and opens up the curlsgiving it a nice look. In case when it’s not doable, use a wide toothed comb to take care of the tangles in your wet hair.
How to dry curly hair:
While drying your curly hair, avoid rubbing and scrubbing with the towel, which would most definitely cause friction followed by fizzy hair. Using an old t-shirt instead of towel is a great alternative to squeeze out extra water from your hair.
If you are in hurry and can’t wait to dry your hair naturally, it’s best to blow dry it, using your fingers to comb through it. While you use this, make sure you always prep your hair with a good heat protectant spray of a well-known brand.
Scrunch with a good styling product:
A good serum or leave in conditioner is a great investment for curly hair. It is always advisable to scrunch your curly mane while applying any product on your wet hair. Let your hair absorb this, before adding another product. Also do not overload your hair with products as these tend to weigh your curls down, making them flat and greasy.
Restore your Hair at Night:
It’s a good idea to roll sections of your hair and pin them up under a hair cap while sleeping at night. By doing this, even if you move around in your sleep, your curls don’t turn into a frizzy mess. It will retain its shine and look great when you open them next day.
