Habits Curly Girls Use To Get Longer Strands
Skip sulfates: if your shampoo has sulfates, toss it. Sulfates will only strip your hair of its natural moisture.
Always prepoo: Before even thinking about washing your strands, make sure to prepoo. This will soften and protect your curls during the washing process.
Deep condition: At least weekly, you;re going to want to use a deep conditioning treatment on your curls. Alternate with a protein treatment a least once or twice a month. You can also throw your deep conditioner into the fridge before to help seal your cuticle after a shampoo or cowash.
Get trims: Don't avoid your regular trims with your stylist. Make it a standing appointment so you know you'll be getting your hair taken care of at least a few times a year, or more if your hair is prone to damage.
Ditch the terry cloth: If you're still using terry cloth to scrub your curls dry, you aren't doing yourself any favors. Instead, use a microfiber towel or t shirt to blot your curls dry instead.
