How To Help Your Frizz Become Soft, Manageable Curls
Shampoo your scalp:
Fortunately, your curls don't actually get all that dirty. Therefore, you'll only need to focus on shampooing your scalp. This will prevent your strands from drying out and becoming frizzy. Additionally, make sure to use low poo or all natural ingredients when you shampoo.
When you do shampoo, less is more. If you don't want to invest in a low poo, consider using water to dilute your shampoo. This will help minimize the amount of sulfates and emulsifiers, which are what cause your natural oils to be stripped away.
If none of these options appeal to you, consider a cowash. This conditioner based product will protect your strands from damage by gently removing build up without stripping off oils.
Use a moisturizing conditioner:
Every curly girl should have a fantastic conditioner in their arsenal This is because conditioners will replace lost moisture and help re establish hydration in your curls. This is one of the biggest ways to battle frizz. After you shampoo, make sure you're completely coating your curls with a water based conditioner. This is also a great time to work on knots and snarls, as the slip will help remove tangles without damaging your delicate curls.
Additionally, you'll need to consider adding a deep conditioning treatment to your regular curl care routine. Deep conditioners provide a more in depth treatment and restore lost moisture. You can also choose a deep conditioner with proteins to help smooth down frizz.
Invest in quality products:
Products are essential to curl care routines and making sure your curls are easy to style. Therefore, you'll want to select products that are right for your curl type, and are natural, as well as free of any ingredients that may harm your curls. Look for products that also have a high water content, as well as other smoothing ingredients to help keep frizz under control. Select products based upon the type and texture of your hair; for example a product made for women with wavy curls might not work as well on thick, kinky coils.
