Often dry and unruly, curly hair needs care to be tamed. Follow these easy tips to enhance your beautiful waves.
1/ Moisturize and nourish your lengths
Curly hair needs customized care to stay shiny and should be moisturized regularly to strengthen the hair fiber. To do this, apply a moisturizing mask or a vegetable oil bath once a week, and for frizzy hair, opt for macadamia vegetable oil, which is excellent for drawing out the curls. Alternatively, you can make a homemade treatment with coconut milk and castor oil. Your hair will be radiant!
2/ Choose the right shampoo
You want to have beautiful curls without frizz? Opt for a gentle cleanser to remove impurities and styling residue without damaging the hair fiber. For beautiful wavy hair, it’s best to space out your shampoos. Wash your hair once or twice a week at most. Otherwise, the protective barriers don’t have time to fight excess oil. Finally, when you wash your hair, it is not necessary to rub the scalp. Instead, use a gentle massage to stimulate growth.
3/ Detangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb
As with straight hair, it is strongly discouraged to brush your wavy hair when it is wet. To detangle them, it is better to use a comb with wide teeth in order not to destroy the structure of the curls. Choose a solid comb, preferably made of wood or horn. This material, which is made of keratin, is particularly resistant and is also antistatic.
4/ Dry your hair naturally
There’s no secret: to have beautiful hair, you have to rely on air drying. Indeed, even if they are very practical, electric appliances are harmful to the hair fiber. The heat of the hair dryer damages the material. As a result, hair becomes brittle, dull and fragile. After shampooing, start by wringing out your hair in a cotton towel. There is no need to rub your hair, just twist it slightly in the towel to remove excess water. Once wrung out, apply a moisturizing serum to your lengths and leave them alone. An hour later, you’ll have beautiful, perfectly shaped curls!
5/ Pamper your hair at night
During the night, our body cells regenerate faster. It is therefore the ideal time to apply repairing treatments and nourishing masks. There are even masks that can be applied like a cap: on dry hair, simply apply the cream, then put on a cap. During the whole night, the care acts without staining the pillow. In the morning, after rinsing, the hair is soft and shiny. A real boost for curly hair!
