Curls are often the envy of those without them, and a source of frustration for those with them. We want you to love your curls, so here are some hacks to help make your life with curls easier.
Invest in a good hair dryer:
A great hair dryer will make all the difference when it comes to caring for your curls. Select a hair dryer that comes with a diffuser designed for curls, such as the DevaCurl Dryer and DevaFuser. While it's better for curls not to use heat, this hair dryer and diffuser set was made with you in mind. The shape of the diffuser mimics a hand, meaning your curls will be gently cradled while being evenly dried.
The right towel:
If you're still using a terry cloth towel to tousle your curls dry, you're doing it wrong. Toss the terry cloth in favor or a microfiber towel, or a Pestemel Hair-Love Towel . The hand loomed cotton towel will gently remove excess moisture from your strands without creating friction or frizz. Make sure you gently squeeze your curls instead of rubbing them dry.
Having the right products is half the battle when it comes to your curls. Not all products work for every curl type, so it's important to know what your curls need before hitting Ulta and filling your basket. Read labels, blogs, and consult with your friends with curls to get their recommendations on what works and doesn't work. For our curlies with wavy hair, you can try out Surf Spray for that carefree, beach look everyone craves in the summer months. Also consider trying out products from curl care lines like DevaCurl, Bumble & Bumble, and SKIMDO.
