The mistakes you're making with your thick curls can be subtle. There are so many benefits to having thick curls! You can rock tons of styles, they look great the next day, and they hold their shape. However, some curlies struggle to deal with their thick curls. Here are the mistakes you”re making with your thick curls. Don't worry, we will tell you how to fix it.
The Mistakes You're Making With Your Thick Curls
The wrong cut:
So many curly girls struggle with this, especially with thick curls. The right cut can make or break your look. Work with a stylist who is trained in caring for curls to get the right layers, face framing, and length to really highlight and showcase your curls. This also means you need to get regular trims. Skipping out on the 6-8 week trim can be detrimental to your curls in the long run as breakage and damage adds up.
Many curly girls with thick curls think this means they have to dump on the product, which is a mistake. However, overusing product can actually be detrimental to your curls. Too much or the wrong product can layer on, which creates build up. Build up leads to dryness, which can then make curls frizzy. Experiment to find the right amount of product for your hair and don't go overboard.
Not addressing frizz:
No matter how hard you ignore it, frizz won't go away unless it's addressed. Thick curls tend to struggle with frizz due to their shape and lack of moisture. Make sure you're taking good care of and moisturizing curls regularly to keep frizz to a minimum.
More often than not, heat is not a friend of curls. Many curly girls overuse heat by blow drying their hair or continuing to use heat tools to manage their curls. Try to avoid overusing heat and allow curls to dry naturally when you can. When you need to use heat, make sure you're utilizing a heat protecting spray. This keeps curls from drying out.
