Tips on; Looking after curly hair. | Tips&Tricks.

If you have naturally strong curly hair or slightly curly hair and you want to keep it that way, you'll probably have to look after you hair differently than someone with naturally straight hair. Looking after curly hair might be slightly different to looking after straight hair so I've got a few tips on how to do so. (*Most of the tips can still apply to people with straight hair). 
  • Make sure you don't use too much heat. Heat can damage the ends of your hair and cause frizz*.
  • Don't wash your hair every single day. Washing your hair everyday take out the natural oils that your scalp makes and causing it to dry out your scalp and hair. Wash it every 2-3 days*.
  • Find a good shampoo and conditioner, preferably one that's made for curly hair. Like the "Flawless Curls" shampoo and conditioner by TRESemme or any other that you think works best for you.
  • If you have curly, frizzy hair avoid brushing your hair when it's dry. The brush will just pull out more hair and make it more frizzy, use a detangling spray when your hair is wet instead.
  • Forget about the towel. Towel drying your hair will just make it more frizzier. Squeeze your hair gently after you wash your hair to get rid of excess water or wrap the towel around your hair loosely instead*.
  • Use anti-frizz serum, mousse and gels for curly hair. "Frizz-Ease" by John Freida is a good anti frizz product that works for both curly and straight hair.
  • Deep condition your hair to keep you scalp hydrated. Using leave in conditioner could also help too*.

Daily Reminder; You don't always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe. Trust. Let go. And see what happens.
