Have you ever felt as though your curls have a mind of their own? We’ve all been there. Trying to manage your curls can feel like a full time job. Here are some tips and tricks help you save time and get the most out of your curls.
Love your curls:
Don’t envy other girl’s locks. Instead, focus your energy on loving your own strands. Embrace your own unique strands and love your curl pattern for what it is: as gorgeous and unique as you!
Remember to moisturize:
Whatever you do, don’t scrimp on moisturizing your curls. Since your curls are naturally dry, they’ll need extra assistance in staying well hydrated. Some curlies find best results in adding extra moisture throughout the day.
Learning how to cleanse your curls is half the battle. Some curlies opt to use a cowash to cleanse their curls, while others opt for gently formulated shampoos. No matter how you wash your hair, do what’s right for your curls.
Lots of conditioner:
This is another area where you don’t want to scrimp when it comes to taking care of your curls. Use a conditioner loaded with moisturizing ingredients to help restore and maintain moisture in your curls.
The right products:
When it comes to managing your curls, the right products are everything. Consult with your stylist, read some blogs, or ask your fellow curlies to figure out which curl care products are best suited for your individual curl needs. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try something new.
Love your strands:
It’s going to take time and patience to get to where you want to be with your curls. Instead of becoming frustrated, allow yourself some slack. Don’t hold your curls up to unreasonable expectations! Instead, learn to love and embrace your strands.
