Most curly girls have experienced dryness when it comes to their curls. Keeping curls well moisturized can be tricky. Curls have more difficulty maintaining moisture than other hair types due to the coiled shape of the strands. This makes it more difficult for natural oils to make it down the shaft. However, there are a few things you can do to maintain moisture in curls.
More deep conditioners:
Many curlies deep condition regularly, but if your strands are still dry you might need to increase the regularity. Deep conditioners help restore moisture, shine, and softness to curls. If you're already deep conditioning bi weekly but not seeing any results, consider switching products.
Use a sealant:
Sealants are used to help lock moisture into your strands so it doesn't evaporate. Sealants come in butters, oils, or creams. However, making sure you're using the right sealant is crucial. For thinner, finer curls you'll want to go with something more lightweight such as an oil, spray, or leave-in conditioning cream. Curlies with thicker, kinkier coils can use creams and butters without fear of your strands getting weighed down.
If you're not moisturizing your curls regularly, it's time to start doing so. Spray your curls with water in the morning and follow up with a leave-in conditioner, than oil. You can also do this in the evening before bed, and put your curls in twists to help maintain moisture throughout the night.
Use correct products:
The products that women with straight hair use probably aren't designed to give the correct levels of moisture to curls. So instead of following the pack, blaze your own trail and discover products that are designed for your hair type. Before you drop a month's pay on all new products, ask other curlies with similar types of hair what works for them, read blogs, watch videos, and check out reviews.
Get regular cuts:
Keeping your curls trimmed is important when it comes to taking care of them. Once damage has occurred, it's impossible to completely repair it, so keeping your strands trimmed will help remove any dull, dead ends. Schedule 5-6 trims per year with your curly hair trained stylist to keep your cut fresh.
