There's a lot of information out there when it comes to styling your curls. Searching through it all to figure out what will work for you can be overwhelming. We've compiled some of the best tips to help you figure out how to style your curly hair.
Own your curls! There's no point in wishing or coveting someone else's curly hair type; you've got what you were given. Once you learn to love your own texture, you'll begin to feel much better. Your curls are as unique as you are, so own their individuality and beauty.
Your curls can't get enough moisture. Since curls are pretty much always dry and therefore frizz prone, you need to help them out by providing more moisture. Taking care of your curls in this way will prevent them from becoming frizzy and out of control. Avoid any products containing sulfates or silicones, as they will just dry your curls out further.
Shampoo is essentially detergent for your hair. As fun as a good lather can be, that lather is actually stripping your curls of natural moisture. Try to avoid shampoos in favor of more gently cleansing options, like a cowash. This will allow you to remove build up without damaging your delicate strands and will keep curls moisturized much better than a shampoo can.
Frizz is part of life when you have curls but that doesn't mean you have to let it run your life. In addition to moisturizing, make sure you're using the right product for your curls. This will help create well defined curls and keep moisture locked in. There are several different products out on the market in a variety of price points, so there is sure to be something that will work for your curl type and fit in your budget.
At the end of the day, your curls will be what they will be. Spend less time fussing over your curls and more time enjoying them! Getting a routine down that includes a good wash, condition, deep condition, product application, and styling will help this tremendously.
