Believe it or not, natural texture is a gift and one that shouldn’t be wasted.
To bring your naturally curly hair to life, learn all the hair care and styling tips to get the best out of your beautiful mane and work that volume for all it’s worth!
Because naturally curly hair tends to be dry and coarse, taking extra good care of it is essential. The first step in taming frizzy, curly hairstyles is finding the right hair care products suited to its specific needs.
Shampoos and conditioners are specially formulated to lock moisture, to combat frizz and turn your unruly hair into glossy waves and curls. Also, keep up with regular trims and once-a-week deep conditioning treatments to banish frizz once and for all.
Also, if your naturally curly locks tend to go lifeless and limp, you need to re-educate your hair, so you don’t use so much product in it. In this case, a little goes a long way.
After washing your hair, run serum through your hair and dry with a good diffuser attachment. This should make your hair easier to manage, but if you were to go for a restyle, it is best to embrace your naturally curly texture and work with it and not against it.
Blow drying curly hair with the diffuser attachment will eliminate fluffy ends, but will leave your curls with lots of volume and shapely coils. Natural curls shape up easily with a curl enhancer and again, with a diffuser; use a curling iron to touch up front and top layers for a polished effect.
Lots of women are scared cutting their curls shorter because they’re afraid they’ll be frizzy and unmanageable. With an innovative haircut, curly texture takes off in a whole new direction. Graduated and bi-level layers help curls look incredibly full and shapely. A haircut needs to get some volume into your hair and it’s very important to find a good stylist who knows what curly hair needs.
If you long for smooth locks, always use a serum when blow drying. To do this, you will need to use a large barrel ceramic brush to keep hair taut while blow drying, pointing the nozzle downwards to seal the cuticle that gives glossy shine to your hair. To finish the look, run a flat iron over top layers to smooth out any kinks. Alternatively, use a large barrel curling iron to create big, sexy curls for a full-on glamorous hairstyle!
