The End Of Summer Curl Care Hacks You Have To Try
To help save you time, as well as minimize frizz, you can start by blotting excess water from your curls. Use a microfiber towel, or even a paper towel if you're in a pinch. Gently squeezing or blotting will help your curls form, but without causing damage to your strands.
The summer is usually quite hard on curls. The sun, heat, chlorine, or salt water can be very damaging to your delicate curls. Therefore, you'll want to make sure you're using curl care masks on your strands. You can create your own using healthy ingredients from around your home, but there are also great products available to purchase. Apply to freshly washed curls, cover, allow to sit for 30 minutes. You can also apply gentle heat to help the moisture penetrate more deeply into your curls.
Before heading into the cooler fall and cold winter months, you'll need to wash away all the harm done by the summer. This includes clarifying your curls. Fortunately, we don't have to spend a lot to get a great clarifying treatment. Grab some baking soda, mix it with water to create a paste, and scrub your scalp with it. Follow that with an apple cider vinegar rinse to soothe your scalp, refresh your strands, and close your cuticles. Your curls will be shiny, smooth, and easy to style. It's a great way to start the fall.
