How to Take Care of Your Curly Hair

If you've got curls, you already know that caring for them can be quite a handful. Curly hair is a bit more delicate than straight hair, and the tighter the curl or coil, the more fragile the strand. Curls generally need a little extra love, and it's important to know how to do right by your hair so it can stay looking amazing. Below are some of the common mistakes that people easily make, be careful to avoid them.

Overcleansing Your Hair

Washing your hair every day is a no-no when you have waves, curls, or coils. By shampooing it frequently, you are actually drying it out. Cleansing it once or twice a week should suffice.

Blow-Drying Your Hair Improperly

Air-drying your hair whenever possible is the best choice for popping curls. When that's not an option, use a hood dryer or blow-dryer with a diffuser attachment to circulate the air without disturbing your curl pattern. Shooting hot air directly on to your hair is the quickest way to damage your strands and turn your crown into a big, frizzy puffball.

Skipping Conditioner

Textured hair can often be dry, dull, and frizzy. It needs moisture to look its best and have that bounce and sheen we all desire. With curls, you want to add hydration, shine, and definition. Look for products with moisturizing, beneficial ingredients, like coconut oil, shea butter, and argan oil.

Using A Terrycloth Towel

Terrycloth has tiny nubs that fluff up your hair cuticles, causing them to frizz. They also absorb too much water out of the hair, which can make it tangle. We recommend that you use a cotton T-shirt or microfiber towel to scrunch dry. Your hair won’t look frazzled or matted.

Overdoing It With Heat

Heat styling is a major curl destroyer. Just one single pass of the flat iron or curling iron can permanently alter your curl pattern. Try turning down your hot tools halfway. You’ll still get smooth, sleek results with less damage.And, of course, don't forget to use a heat protectant to minimize further damage.

Treating Hair with Chemical Processes

Even temporary chemical treatments can permanently alter the way your curls look and behave. We should always avoid to use them.

Applying The Wrong Type of Styling Products

We stay away from products containing silicones. They coat your hair and only provide Band-Aids, not long-term moisture. They are not water-soluble and tend to build up on the hair causing it to look lackluster, limp, and unmanageable.

Also, anything that has alcohol in it is terrible for curls. Alcohol sucks up moisture and doesn’t allow curls to bounce. You need moisture-based products and a finishing oil to seal, define, and eliminate frizz.

Detangling With The Wrong Type of Hair Tool

Never use a fine-tooth comb on textured hair. You’re just asking for all types of trouble, especially snares and breakage. Hair brushes should also be used at a minimum — they break up curls and invite frizz to flourish. Use your fingers or a wide-tooth comb, working your way from the ends to the roots, to work through any tangles.

Touching Your Hair Often

Don’t touch your hair too much. You’ll break up your curl pattern, which will lead to frizz.

Skipping Trims

Lack of trimming can add to breakage. If you don’t snip the split ends off, they will continue to fray and make your hair look frazzled and lackluster. Simply dust every few weeks to keep your curls looking bouncy and healthy.

Not Protecting Your Strands While You Sleep

Cotton soaks up the natural oils in your hair, robbing it of necessary moisture. Some stylelists suggest tying your hair in a satin scarf or sleeping on a silk pillowcase to preserve the health and shine of your hair. The silky fabric cuts down on tangling and breakage — another plus for your curly top.

Going Unprotected in the Sun and Surf

Not protecting your hair when you go to the beach is a disaster waiting to happen. The combo of sun, salt water, sand, and wind can be very drying, not to mention leave your hair gnarly with nasty tangles. Apply a leave-in conditioner, such as René Furterer Karinga Hydrating Styling Leave-In Cream, to protect your strands from these unfriendly elements.

 

Curly hair is charming. And it requires a lot of care work. But it's worthwhile.

The 25 Best Hair Tips from top Pro Stylists

Tuesday, May 22, 2018 2:01:59 AM America/Los_Angeles

The 25 Best Hair Tips from top Pro Stylists 1. A superfine mist of water from a spray bottle can loosen curls without fully rewetting the hair, and it air-dries in seconds. — Kristin Ess 2. While blow-drying, let hair cool before taking it off the brush. Everyone speeds it along, and it’s why their hair falls or curls don’t last. — Lacy Redway 3. To prevent a texturizing or surf spray from turning hair dull, mix it with a few drops of hair oil in your palm and then rake it through hair. — Mark Townsend 4. For loose waves, use the iron's clamp to pull hair smooth at the roots, then wrap the length of the hair vertically around the iron, leaving the ends out. — Justine Marjan 5. It's not the sexiest look ever, but get a satin bonnet to wear while you sleep. It’ll preserve any style overnight. — Ess 6. To smooth the back of your hair, brush it forward (over your shoulders) as you dry it — creating tension at the roots with your brush dries the hair straight. — Jen Atkin 7. To refresh curls, use a hair dryer on the cold setting: Blast dry hair from side to side, swinging it with your fingers to bring curls back to life. — Vernon Fran?ois 8. It's hard to think of cutting thinning hair — if you’re losing yours, you don’t want to give any up — but trimming two inches makes it look fuller. — Nunzio Saviano 9. Healthy hair holds color longer, so do weekly deep-conditioning treatments to keep yours vibrant and shiny. — James Corbett 10. For volume, blow-dry the roots first, lifting them with your fingers. When you start with the lengths, you pull down on wet roots, flattening them out. — Harry Josh 11. Section curly hair into four twists in the shower and smooth shampoo on top of each one and your hair won’t get tangled when you wash it. — Fran?ois 12. For a sleek pony, tilt your head back 45 degrees and gather your hair with a mixed-bristle brush. The more bristles, the smoother your hair will be. — Josh 13. If you’ve transitioned to natural texture, it’s so important to keep hair moisturized. Use a leave-in conditioner after every single shower. — Redway 14. For the easiest bouncy volume, use dry shampoo (from roots to ends) before bed, and sleep with your hair in a bun for lasting volume the next day. — Ess 15. If your hair is thinning or lacks volume, adding highlights can swell the cuticle, giving the appearance of more hair. — Corbett 16. Turning your wand from vertical to horizontal when curling will give you a softer wave. — Josh 17. If you only use co-wash, your hair could get limper. Cleanse your scalp with a scrub every once in a while to take off dead skin cells. — Fran?ois 18. For a subtle bend that’s identical to a round-brush blowout, curl your hair with a giant two-inch curling iron, and set the hair with clips for 10 to 30 minutes. — Ess 19. When you’re not sure what to do with your hair, part it on the side. It exposes the undersides, which usually look healthier and shinier than the top layers. — Garren 20. If you want your blowout to last, hair needs to be 100 percent dry or it’ll frizz and fall. So feel around for damp spots and dry them. — Nathaniel Hawkins 21. I always stretch out my washes one extra day by putting my hair in a low bun with a thin layer of pomade on top so it looks sleek, not greasy. — Ess 22.For a no-bump updo, blow-dry damp or dry hair in the direction of the style (e.g., from the nape and sides upward for a high bun or pony). — Jennifer Yepez 23. Spritzing your hair with a little water reactivates yesterday’s product so you don’t have to pile on more (that can weigh down your hair). — Garren 24. When you're pressed for time, try a texturized pony. Twist hair into three mini buns, set with a diffuser, then shake your hair out and tie the ponytail. — Josh 25. If you accidentally put too much product in your hair, use dry shampoo all the way through to the ends to soak it up. — Yepez
