Have you ever purchased curly hair before, only to be disappointed as you watched it tangle and mat up? Well, we’ve seen the worst of it, and managed to untangle and unmat the hair simply by following these tricks.
Read on to learn how to care for curly so that it looks lush and fabulous all the time.
1. Condition well.
Curly textured hair is naturally drier than other hair textures, so it requires extra moisture. We recommend using a moisturizing or hydrating conditioner after shampooing. And for even more moisture, you can treat yourself to a deep conditioning treatment at least once every two weeks.
2. No heat tools.
Heat will frizz and dry out curly hair. So, it’s best to avoid heat styling as much as possible. Instead, while the hair is still wet, gently scrunch up the curls from the bottom with your hand, and lay it on a dry towel to air dry completely.
3. Finger comb only.
Avoid brushing or combing your curly hair when it’s dry. Brushing or combing while the hair is dry may cause hair breakage, and tug on knots/tangles. Before washing is the only time you should brush the hair. Gently detangle before washing using a soft paddle brush or wide tooth comb on your curly hair.
4. Avoid heavy styling products.
Products like oil, gel and mousse will weigh down a curly weave, and cause tangling and matting issues!
5. Use natural oil and light essence spray.
Natural oil or a light essence spray will help de-frizz and tame your mane. But be sure to only use a very small amount of oil (about a dime size) because too much will weigh the hair down!
