Curly hair requires a lot of extra care to keep it curly and moisturized. There are home remedies that will give your hair a beautiful curl and keep it frizz-free. Let’s find out how to take care of curly hair.
How Do I Care for My Curly Hair?
The care of curly hair does not have to be difficult. It is important to use the right products, which do not weigh down the hair. These products must contain quite a few emollients, which effectively help moisturize the hair. It is not worth saving on shampoos, because their slightly cheaper counterparts may have SLS or parabens, which additionally weigh them down. Natural shampoos and hair soaps are a good choice. It is a good idea to run your fingers through your hair while shampooing and to gently knead your hair. Blow-drying your hair properly will also give your hair an attractive curl
A good method for drying hair is plopping. Wrap your hair in a towel and let it rest on the towel. This way, excess water stays in the towel and your hair is not overloaded. It is sometimes a good idea to use conditioner instead of shampoo. To moisturize your hair effectively, it is advisable to apply oil before washing it. A small amount of oil is applied to dry hair from the roots to the ends. Choose an oil that is suitable for your hair porosity. After two hours the oil is removed with a shampoo. Oils hold water in the hair which gives a very good moisturizing effect and makes combing easier. Drying your hair should not be too fast. The best method is to leave your hair slightly brushed and damp so that it dries naturally. If you must use a hair dryer, it should have an ionization function and a diffuser attachment to accentuate your curls
Curly hair may also be styled in a chignon or braid for an elegant twist. A good styling method for curly hair is gentle kneading, which in combination with special styling mousse allows for a very effective and long-lasting hairstyle. If the curl is still not enough, you can accentuate it with a wide round brush or use hair rollers. For styling and detangling curly hair we should choose fine-toothed combs, which gently comb through the hair. It is advisable to use light cosmetics to take care of your curls. This will make the curl much more visible. To care for your curls on a daily basis you should use light moisturizing mists, and heavy conditioners and masks should be applied once or twice a month. The right haircut can help accentuate the curl. A haircut may be preceded by a moisturizing treatment, e.g. with an ampoule or an appropriate conditioner matched to our hair and its porosity. A hair stylist or a trychologist will certainly help us with this.
