2. Trimming Stories
How often do you go to the salon for a hair trim? It should be thrice a month to keep up with healthy fresh curly hair. Curly hair is prone to dryness since the natural oils from the scalp takes time to reach every part of the hair. Dryness can be cause of dull curly hair too.

4. Layer It
If the hair is too curly and long, you can give it a light look cutting it into long layers. This will help lighten the texture and to make the bottom part of the hair less heavy. Don’t cut too short the layers or else the hair would look very puffy.
5. No Razor Cut
