Straight Talk About Curly Hair. 5 Tricks To Keep It Under Control.

curly hair careYou know the old adage, “The grass is always greener on the other side.” It applies to health and beauty, too. Brunettes want to be blonde, blondes want dark hair and curly heads long for straight tresses.

Sigh. Realistically, the best you can do is deal with the locks you were given whether curly or straight, dark or light. If yours happen to be curly, you’ve likely tried every flat iron and straightening gel on the market.

How about embracing your curls and trying simple tips for curly hair care? You might just find that the locks you were born with can actually work for you instead of against you.

  1. Condition, Condition, Condition!
    There are millions of products on the market today designed to keep your hair moisturized and frizz-free. Your curls will thank you if you keep them moisturized and under control. Consider a leave-in product that will reduce the volume of hair while keeping each curl perfectly formed.
  2. Diffuse the Situation
    When you blow dry your hair the old-fashioned way, it can result in a mess of frizz and curls that are anything but under control. Attach a diffuser to your blow dryer to help keep the curls in-tact.
  3. Go Cold!
    Use the cold setting on your blow dryer to avoid frizz. Dry hair in sections, allowing the curls to form naturally and then stay put.
  4. Avoid the Towel Turban
    Wrapping your locks in a towel after stepping out of the shower probably feels like the natural thing to do. When it comes to curly hair care, it’s not the best option because it mashes your curls together upping your chances for frizz. Instead of wrapping, towel dry your hair by gently blotting it.
  5. Use Your Fingers
    Let your curls form and fall naturally by raking your fingers through your hair instead of straightening with a brush or comb. Loosely rake your hand through your locks, shaking your hand from side to side as you go.

Find a solution that works for you by giving your curls a chance. Avoid the frustration that often goes along with curly hair care by embracing your curls.
