Curly hair tends to be naturally drier, so keeping it well-hydrated is crucial. Use a sulfate-free shampoo and a deep conditioner regularly to lock in moisture.
After washing your hair, avoid vigorously rubbing it with a towel, as this can cause frizz. Instead, “plop” your hair by gently wrapping it in a microfiber towel or an old t-shirt to absorb excess water.
Invest in a good leave-in conditioner. It helps in detangling and adds an extra layer of moisture and protection to your curls.
When blow-drying, use a diffuser attachment on a low heat setting to evenly distribute airflow and enhance your natural curls without causing frizz.
Limit the use of heat styling tools like flat irons or curling irons. Embrace your natural curls and use them as a base for different hairstyles.
To preserve your curls overnight, gather your hair on top of your head and secure it loosely with a scrunchie. This “pineapple” method prevents flattening and frizz while you sleep.
