Curl Talk: Tips And Tricks to Manage Curly Hair

By  | 

Curly hair is special, and women who have it know how hard it can be to manage.

Curly hair bends, twists and coils, and it can be surprisingly fragile and dry. Here are some tips and tricks to ensure your curly hair is at its best potential.

1. Keep dead ends at bay.

Not every curly girl likes hearing this, but the right trim can make a huge difference for your curls. If you have bad split ends, then you need to cut it before it breaks your hair.

Longer hair does weigh down your curls, but trimming every eight to 12 weeks can help keep them healthy. When you get a trim, you’re allowing your curls to get rid of dead and dull split ends that will thin your hair out. Curls are easier to detangle when they’re freshly trimmed. You’ll find that your curls look thicker, fuller and healthier.

2. Look out for bad ingredients.

There is one thing that curly haired people should always look out for — bad ingredients. Make sure you use sulfate-free shampoos and silicone-free conditioners. If not, your curls will dry out.

3. Give your curls some TLC.

Use a deep conditioning hair mask once a week to rejuvenate your hair. Dry your hair with a cotton t-shirt or a microfiber cloth to avoid breakage and frizz.  If you do not have time to air dry your hair, you can use a diffuser to help speed up the drying process.
