Want to keep your curly hair looking lush and beautiful? Curls can require a little more maintenance than straight hair due to being generally dryer and more prone to knots. Fortunately, there are a growing number of products out there aimed at curly hair, which have made this maintenance tsk easier. Here are a few handy tips for caring for your curls.
Curl Power: Caring For Curly Hair
Comb, don’t brush
Brushes are great for straight hair, but not so much for curly hair. All that tugging can damage the roots and possibly even lead to hair loss later in life! Always use a comb where possible – if you’ve got frizzy hair, stick to a wide toothed comb. Combing your hair whilst wet can help to minimise knots and will make the process much easier. You can buy detanglers for curly hair that can help to naturally loosen up knots. Products such as this one https://www.sheamoisture.com/raw-shea-butter-moisture-retention-shampoo.html are recommended and can help to moisturise your hair as well as detangling it.
Use a t-shirt not a towel
Towels can be rough on your locks and help to create knots in curly hair. Rather than drying your hair with a towel, why not try using a spare t-shirt? It may seem like a strange substitute for a towel, but its finer fibres can actually be perfect for your curly hair. The healthiest way to let your hair dry is to actually let it drip dry, however this does require leaving yourself enough time (you could try washing in the evening instead of the morning so that your hair dries overnight – you can use a satin pillowcase to prevent bed hair).
