Here Are Some Useful Tips For Curly Hair
Take on this challenge through implementing these styling tips for your hair.
1. Do Wash Before You Begin Styling
It always helps to start styling with clean hair, especially when they are curls. Why? Because styling requires application of serum or gel or other hair products from the scratch, which provide fresh look to your style. Remember to use only sulphate free shampoo or cleanser to rinse leftover products from your previous styling.
2. Divide Your Curls in Smaller Sections For Product Application
At times, curls behave differently at the different areas of the hair. It is due to uneven application of the styling product. To deal with this, it is advisable is to part your curls in smaller sections and then evenly apply the styling product. This way, all sections of your hair could be given the required care. Also, start applying the product from the back of the head, where hair are thicker, then to the sides and lastly on the top of the head.

With curls, unless they get completely dry, do not touch or manipulate them with hands. Doing so will result in unmanageable frizzes. Let the hair completely dry and then you can begin with styling. Also, instead of blow drying them, it’s better to let them naturally dry in air.
4. Soften You Curls With The Help Of Light Oil
Many a times, excess use of gel or any other hair styling product make your curls go dry or stiff or hard. In this case, you should evenly apply oil light in nature such as marula or argan oil on your hair from root to tip. Take only small amount of oil and rub it through your hands first, so as to avoid the oily look. Remember to let your hair completely dry first and then apply oil. If you want to use hair styling product while at the same time avoiding crunch, you can dilute your product with water for the application.
