Dear curlies, we hear you! The internet is filled with tips and tricks for styling your curly hair. There’s so much information, and it can be overwhelming! Here’s a list of four common styling challenges for curls and the solutions that we often give during consultations with new curly clients.
Reset that hair! If there is buildup present it will be harder for products and water to penetrate your hair. If you need to clarify, your hair might look limp and dull. Use a clarifying shampoo or a detoxifying mask!
The more water you have in your hair when you style, the more your products will actually seep into your hair. This will lessen the “crunchy” feel, ensure no frizz, even product distribution, and add shine!
Sectioning the hair for styling will give your curls more definition. Start from the back and work your way up to the top and the sides. Grab 1-2″ sections and rake your product through with your hands or a wet brush.
If you want 3-4 days out of your wash day, you need to use a gel or foam. These will create a cast around your hair, preserving your curls and helping them to hold their shape. This will give you more days between washes and minimal frizz!
If your hair feels a little too stiff after drying, you can use a dime-size amount of oil and scrunch your hair until it is soft.
