Managing curls that are damaged and dry is a pain. Naturally curly hair is usually low in moisture. Hydration is often lessened by heat and styling damage. In order to have healthy, bouncy and shiny curls, you need to spend some time pampering those strands. We're going to give you some tips and tricks on how to reclaim your naturally gorgeous curls.
Get a trim:
If your curls are damaged, book an appointment with your favorite stylist for a trim. Getting rid of dead ends will help your curls grow longer and stronger more quickly.
Washing your curls too often can strip them of their natural oils and moisture. Avoid this pitfall by washing your hair the least amount possible. For most curlies, it's 1-2 times per week. On your off days, make best friends with a great dry shampoo.
Deep condition your curls regularly and use masks to seal in essential moisture. Good quality masks and deep conditioners will add vitamins and nutrients to your dry curls, which will help minimize frizz.
Whether is a DIY hair mask, a leave in conditioner or a protein treatment, don't skimp when it comes to curl care products. Select products that are right for your curl type and pattern, avoiding those with harsh chemicals like parabens and silicones. Don't be afraid to pamper your curls a little.
Healthy curls start from the inside out. Make sure you're eating well, getting plenty of rest, exercising and drinking lots of water. Keeping your body healthy is a sure way to make sure your curls grow long and strong.
