Many girls dream of having curls, believing that caring for them comes down to regular washing and drying with a hairdryer. However, this is not at all the case. Curly hair is often nastier than straight hair. Without proper care, such hair often tangles, electrifies, and simply turns into a shapeless mass. How should you properly care for curly hair? Experts recommend you to follow several simple rules.
Due to the peculiarities of the structure (porous structure, cuticle scales unevenly adjacent to each other), curly hair is usually dry by nature. Hence it’s likely to break and become unruly. Therefore, the main point of care for such hair type is hydration and nutrition. Choose shampoos and conditioners for curly hair. If there are none in your favorite hair care product line, switch to another product line offering nice products for dry hair. Apply regenerating and nourishing hair masks regularly. These products must contain at least one of the following components: phospholipids, ceramides, keratin, collagen, as well as natural shea butter, macadamia, jojoba, etc.
The good news is that curly hair can be washed once a week. It doesn’t lie so closely to the scalp, and its contact with sebum is minimal. However, you have to be extremely careful when drying curly hair. It is best to let it dry on its own. Wrap a towel around your head and lightly dry your hair with it to absorb moisture after washing. Don’t rub your hair with a towel and never brush your hair when wet.
In order to style beautiful neat curls, apply a nourishing oil, leave-in conditioner, or serum to slightly wet hair from mid-length. Spread the product with your hands and create curls by curling the hair around your finger
