The Best Tricks For Great Curls
Wide toothed comb:
Toss the hair brush: trust us, it's doing your curls no favors. Instead, opt for a wide toothed comb to work through knots, distribute product, and help maintain healthy strands.
Give plopping a try:
It sounds weird, but trust us, it works. After your shower, apply your products and then flip your curls over onto a flat surface with a tshirt or microfiber towel laid down. Plop your curls so that when you wrap the towel, your strands are held close to your head. Allow your hair to dry to 90%.
Skip the triangle:
Ah, the dreaded triangle cut. Many a curly girl has fallen victim to a stylist who just doesn't really know how to cut their curls. Fortunately, it doesn't have to be this way. Make sure you're working with a stylist who understands how to cut curls, and request lots of layers to lift your curls.
Learn your curl type:
We can't stress enough the importance of understanding what type of curls you have. This will help inform not only the products you use, but also how you style and care for your curls.
Invest in deep conditioner:
There are a lot of ways you can cut corners to save costs when caring for curls, but a good quality deep conditioner shouldn't be one of them. Since you're going to need to use it at least once a week, make sure you're picking a good quality product with lots of moisturizing ingredients.
Before hitting the hay, consider pineappleing your curls. This super easy protective style piles your curls up on top of your head in a loose ponytail. Then, curls are able to be protected, and you can remove the ponytail in the morning for great, un-squished curls.
