Curly hair requires some special considerations when it comes to care. Curly hair tends to be drier and more prone to tangles than straight hair, so you’ll have to be careful about washing, conditioning, and styling your hair.Today’s blog post is for all you curly-haired beauties out there, who are looking for the best tips on how to care for their curls.
- Washing Curly Hair
– Don’t overdo it. Generally, curly hair is prone to being dry, which is the reason why it’s so important not to over-wash it. Excessive shampooing opens up the cuticles and strips the hairs of their natural oils, which will dry out your curls even more. The less you wash, the better! Say, 1-2 times a week.
– Cleanse the scalp. That being said, shampooing curly hair is still necessary for healthy hair growth, as it gets rid of all the buildup from oils, dirt, and dust. When shampooing, concentrate on rubbing and cleansing your scalp properly with your fingertips.
– Know your ingredients. The key is to use products specifically made for curly hair, which are also sulfate and alcohol free. Alcohol/sulfites are the harshest of detergents and surfactants, they are extremely drying to the hair, and should be avoided.
Curly hair tends to be drier than many other types for a very simple, structural reason—because of its twisty shape, it takes longer for oil from the scalp to make its way along the length of the hair strand. Therefore, curly hair needs lots of moisture—more than most other types of hair!
Spritz then seal your dry hair with water and conditioner: It stands to reason that water would be good for dry hair…and it is! So try this: fill a spray bottle with two-thirds water and one third moisturizing spray-on conditioner. Mist your hair until its damp but not dripping. Then seal in the first layer of moisture with a rich conditioning cream or oil. If you like using a styling or blow-out cream before blow drying, layer it over a leave-in moisturizing formula for double protection and an extra shot of moisture for your dry hair. Take time for a weekly hot oil treatment: It’s easy and relaxing! Simply apply a luxurious treatment oil formula–with ingredients like gardenia, coconut or Tahitian Manoi oil–to your dry hair, and comb through with a wide tooth comb. Cover your hair with a plastic cap and sit in the sun, under a dryer or in a warm room for 20-30 minutes. Relax! Then rinse, shampoo and condition with a rich conditioner.

Curly hair has one Great Commandment: Never brush curly hair.
This wrecks your curl pattern by breaking up the hair strands that are forming curls.Further, because your curls resist the brush, brushing can yank your hair out at the root or break it into split ends or probably both. Remember, you are more likely to damage the hair shaft because it is not protected at all!
Only comb your hair with a wide tooth comb before your shower, or gently finger comb after the shower. Remember that wet hair is more prone to breakage, so be super patient and gentle if you’re combing it wet.
Avoid hairsprays and mousse: Not only can it make your curls crunchy, these two products are also ones that contain the highest amount of alcohol.
Go easy on the heat: Excess heat can cause your curls lose their natural spiral-like shape, making them look lifeless. If you notice this, avoid using any kind of heat for a week or two. If you do use hot styling tools, use them on moderate heat setting and always use heat protectant.
