How To Manage Curly, Frizzy Hair?
Curly hair is more prone to breakage than straight hair as the natural oils from the scalp have a hard time making it to the tip of the curls because of the curl's pattern. How manage curly, frizzy hair can prove to be a challenge for many curly-haired girls. But once you master the art of keeping your curls hydrated and well-defined, you can easily rock your voluminous curls. We have got experts to share their knowledge on managing curly hair.
1. Use A Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner On Your Curls
Avoid washing your hair frequently; shampoo only when required. Use a shampoo and conditioner specifically designed for curly hair as it helps keep your curls well-defined, hydrated, frizz-free, and bouncy. After shampooing, drench your hair with lots of conditioners. This helps to restore the lost moisture.
2. Dry Your Hair With Care To Avoid Breakage
After washing your hair, squeeze any excess moisture out of your hair gently using a microfiber towel or a cotton T-shirt. Bath towels cause friction between your hair, causing dry and frizzy hair. Instead of blow-drying, let your hair air dry whenever possible to avoid hair damage due to heat and friction. To reduce frizz, use a diffuser while blow-drying to even out the heat distribution and reduce friction.
3. Avoid Brushing Your Curls; Use A Wide-Toothed Comb To De-tangle Your Hair
Curly and wavy hair is more prone to tangles. Detangle your curly, frizzy hair using your fingers or a wide-tooth comb when applying the conditioner. You should meticulously apply a leave-in conditioner to your damp curls and detangle the curls slowly and gently. Don't ever try to detangle dry curls. This can damage the curl pattern and create frizz.
4. Style Your Hair With Curl-Defining Products While It Is Still Moist
For well-defined curls, apply the curl-defining styling products when it is damp or moist. Make sure you choose haircare products specifically for curly hair, which will form defined ringlets, coils, or spiral waves, keeping your curls hydrated and frizz-free.
Apply a generous amount of mousse, hair gel, or cream throughout the length of your hair while it is wet, hold them together and scrunch them upwards with a little effort to allow your curls to develop. Applying a generous amount of curl styling product ensures that your curls clump together to give you more distinct, big, bouncy, and frizz-free curls.
5. Deep Condition Regularly
Curly, kinky, and coily hair is often coarse and prone to dryness. The best way to hydrate and revive your thirsty curls is to deep condition your hair regularly. Apply a deep conditioner once or twice and week, making sure that you coat each strand properly. Cover your head with a shower cap and wait for 30 minutes. Then wash off.
6. Use The Styling Tools With Caution
Use a diffuser to avoid damage due to styling tools whenever you blow-dry your hair. Ensure that you apply a heat protectant to protect your hair from heat damage. A heat protector can be your best friend while using styling tools. Excessive use of heating tools can cause dryness and frizz. Use a wide barrel curling iron if you want big, voluminous curls. Divide your hair into sections and, using a curling iron, curl your hair as you normally do. Comb your hair gently with fingers or wide-tooth comb to relax your curls. Add bounce and volume to your hair with a texture spray. Roots get more volume by spraying volumizing spray.
7. Protect your curls while you sleep
Make sure your curls remain distinct and well-defined while you rest by securing your hair into a top knot or a messy bun. Silk pillowcases reduce friction-induced frizz, dryness, and hair loss. Next morning you can hydrate and nourish your curls by using a hair cream or oil.
Alternatively, you can braid your hair before sleeping to avoid frizz and dryness.
