Understand what your hair needs:
Remember, every curl is different and therefore has different needs. What works for your strands may or may not work for the other curlies in your life. Therefore, to get the most out of your curls you need to understand what your hair needs to make it the best it can be.
Ok, so who hasn't bought a product because the bottle looked cool, or because a friend of yours recommended it? We've all done this! However, we'd like to challenge you to make sure you're taking the time to read the ingredients list on your bottles. Make sure what you're putting into your curls is good quality, and will also help your strands.
We can't stress enough the importance of getting regular trims. While it can be tempting to go a long time between visits to your stylist to maintain length, this can actually lead to more issues down the road. When curls become damaged, they can split. Therefore, to help your curls grow and keep your strands healthy, get a trim every few weeks.
Grab a gel:
Gel is your friend! Find a gel that works well for your type of curls, and make sure you're using it regularly. Gels when used correctly, can be a great helper for curls. They help your curls take shape, as well as hold them. When you break your curl's cast, you'll have soft, gorgeous curls that will hold.
