Consider this your guide to getting healthy, bouncy spirals.
Unlike straight hair, curly hair tends to lack moisture and dry out easily, making it more difficult to care for. We’re here to help you manage and treat those curls so they can look and feel healthy for the ultimate bounce!
Read on to find simple tips that will keep your waves and curls looking shiny and strong.
Tip #1: Avoid excessive shampooing and choose the correct shampoo & conditioner specifically for your curls.
Curly hair is naturally prone to frizziness caused by dryness and over-cleansing, so avoid harsh chemicals such as sulphates found in shampoo’s. Also seek out a curl-boosting shampoo and conditioner formulation that nourishes and hydrates, such as Moroccanoil’s Curl Enhancing Shampoo & Conditioner which gently cleanses the hair to reveal noticeably softer, smoother curls that are full of definition and free of unwanted frizz. Moroccanoil is formulated with nourishing argan oil to restore elasticity, shine and manageability.
Tip #2: Apply styling products while your hair is damp.
The sooner you can set your curls, the better! Apply a styling product, such as the Moroccanoil Intense Curl Cream to damp hair. Moroccanoil’s Intense Curl Cream is a leave-in conditioner that moisturises and fights stubborn frizz without any stickiness. The cream is infused with nourishing argan oil, which is naturally very rich with vitamin E and essential fatty acids to keep curly hair looking hydrated and touchably soft all day.
Bonus Tip: Gently work the Intense Curl Cream to dry hair throughout the day to refresh curls and control frizz.
Tip #3: Get the right hairbrush to detangle curls.
Briogeo’s vegan Boar Bristle Brush gently detangles curly and coiled hair for a smooth healthy-looking finish. This lightweight brush is engineered to perfection featuring soft ballpoint tips to gently massage scalp, multi-layered bristles to detangle every strand, and a durable handle.
Tip #4: Get a diffuser attachment for your hairdryer!
A diffuser is an attachment for your blow dryer that disperses the air to reduce frizz and keep from disrupting the natural wave pattern. Part of the ghd Helios range, this diffuser attachment is to be used with the ghd Helios Professional Hairdryer.
Best suited for enhancing natural curls and waves, when drying hair.
