THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO EVERYDAY CURLY HAIR CARE

Are you also a curly-haired girly?

Girls with curly hair often receive compliments about their beautiful locks falling on their faces and the ringlets framing their faces, giving them a naturally ruffled look. But the truth is you don’t wake up with your hair in a perfect, shiny, curly-curly state, they need plenty of daily hair care.

Unlike straight hair, curly hairs tend to lack moisture and dry up easily, making the hair more frizzy and making the caring for it part a tough job.

The ultimate secret to having the perfect curls is to commit to a strict routine.

The right products, habits, and styling tools will keep your hair hydrated and healthy, which helps maintain the natural pattern of your curls.   

We have put together a guide, especially for our curly-haired girlies on ‘daily hair care routine’.

TAKEAWAY

The key factor to wrap your head around is that curly hairs are said to be damage-prone as they tend to dry out easily and thus they crave moisture, which results in frizz, breakage, split ends, and damaged hair. Dry hair also appears coarse and dull, putting a damper on your hairdo. You should always pre-shampoo your hair before actually applying Shampoo and follow up with a conditioner, etc etc. Build your everyday hair-care routine around hydration to protect your hair from dryness and breakage. Hydrated curls are bouncier, shinier, and healthier, making them easier to manage and style.

If treated properly, your curls will look healthy, shiny, and defined.

Curly hair is known for being damage-prone because of its natural tendency for dryness. This is because it’s difficult for your scalp’s natural oils to travel down a curly strand compared to a straight one. All the problems common to curly hair are a result of dryness. Your curls become breakable when they’re not properly moisturized. This results in frizz, breakage, split ends, and damaged hair. Dry hair also appears coarse and dull, putting a damper on your hairdo. The secret to having healthy curls is to keep them hydrated. This means getting rid of the products, habits, and tools that strip moisture from your hair.

Here’s what a basic hair care routine for curly hair should look like:

1. PRE-SHAMPOO

The first and foremost thing that you should know about curly hair is: DO NOT wash your hair every day. Washing the hair daily strips all the natural oils from the hair, letting your hair unwashed allows the natural oil more time to coat your hair from the root to the end.

Now, the problem with your unwashed hair is that it gets very tangled. This is where ‘pre-shampoo’ comes in. Pre-shampoo also known as ‘pre-poo treatment’ helps detangle your hair thus making the ‘curls washing’ part comparatively easy.

2. SHAMPOO

Choose a shampoo that is specifically formulated for curly hair. We recommend getting one that is free from toxic chemicals like; parabens, alcohol, and sulphates. Look for sulfate- and fragrance-free shampoo to avoid drying out your scalp.

You can wash your hair 2 to 3 times a week, depending on your curl type and how oily your hair gets.

3. CONDITIONER

Conditioner is non-negotiable for curly-haired girls. Conditioning the hair brings back moisture in the hair after shampooing, so make sure to condition your hair after shampooing.

Try to keep the focus of the product on the tip and the strands of your hair. Avoid applying the conditioner on your scalp to keep your hair from looking greasy. However, conditioning from the root tip might be helpful if you have extremely dry hair or tightly coiled curls.

4. HAIR MASK\ HAIR OIL

Use a hair mask or hair oil once a week. This brings back moisture to your curls after a week’s worth of using products and styling tools. We recommend using hair oils to improve blood circulation on your scalp. Massage the oil onto your scalp to nourish the roots and promote healthy hair growth.

If you don’t like oiling your scalp, you can use a deep-conditioning mask instead. Choose one that’s specially formulated for curly hair.

A mask infused with argan oil, glycerin, or coconut oil will bring back hydration into your strands.

5. AFTER SHOWER TREATMENT

Curl creams or gels are designed to tackle dryness, frizz, flyaways, and tangles by providing them with hydration. These products provide your hair the structure and definition so that your hair doesn’t lose volume throughout the day. After-shower curl treatments also add shine to your hair, making it look healthy and bouncy.

After showering, lightly comb through your hair to get rid of the tangles. Then, apply a coin-sized amount of your preferred curl cream through your hair. Rub the product between your palms, cup your curls, then scrunch them upwards to encourage curl definition
