Before you begin styling your curls, make sure you’re taking the time to section out your hair. This will make it much easier to apply product, correctly moisturize, and work with your curls without damaging them.
Before you can begin anything you need to detangle your hair. Start with a wide toothed comb or your fingers and work through each area individually. Don’t be afraid to use oil, a detangler, or conditioner to help work through snarls.
Curls need an extra dose of moisture to stay healthy. You can use water, conditioner, refreshing spray, or butters to help revitalize your curls. Try not to go too heavy with your moisturizers right before styling.
If you need some extra hold to keep your curls in place, use a gel. Select an alcohol free one to keep curls from drying out.
When styling, go easy on curls. If you’ve worn your curls in a protective style for awhile, consider using a wash and go for a few days to give strands a break. When putting in a protective style try not to over manipulate or extend your curls.
Let curls dry completely before removing or working with any braids or knots. Continuing to manipulate curls while wet can cause a lot of damage to them or promote shrinkage, which can break strands. Once your curls are dried, you can separate the strands, fluff, or arrange how you’d like to show off your natural hair pattern.
