If you were blessed with curly hair, you know that while it can be the most stunning look, it also can be a nightmare to deal with it.
Curls are notorious for often just doing whatever they please. Even if you use the same products, style it similarly, and treat your hair with the utmost care, your curls can decide to look perfect one day and ridiculous the next.
Here are five curly hair problems and how to fix them.
Problem: It is continuously frizzy.
It is no secret that all hair types can suffer from continuous frizziness, but fine, curly hair is the most prone to it. As it is conditional to the impulses of the weather and humidity, it can feel like a never-ending struggle (seriously, frizziness is everyone’s enemy).
Solution: In order to keep your frizziness under control, you want to make sure you are using anti-frizz products. Alternatively, you can treat yourself to a Brazilian Blowout. Safe for all types of hair, the benefits of a Brazilian blowout include:
- Improving shine as well as moisture levels
- Reducing your daily drying time by half
- Producing salon quality hair at home
- Guaranteeing your mane always looks natural and frizz-free
Problem: It is always knotted or tangled.
If you are spending just as much time attempting to get the hairbrush through your mane, as you are actually getting ready, then you have a problem. Curly hair can be wild (beautiful, but wild), and this can make it even more challenging to stay on top of knots and tangles.
Solution: Purchase a Wet Brush and use it in the shower on wet hair! These brushes are fabulous for sorting out knots and tangles without pulling or breaking your locks.
Problem: The curls get crazy over-night.
For curly-haired girls, it is better to shower in the morning and only brush your hair when it is wet to save you from waking up looking like a lion with an outrageous mane of hair. If you do regularly wash your hair at night, you are probably quite aware that the curls can get a little crazy while you are slumbering.
Solution: Treat yourself to a silk pillowcase! By sleeping on a silk pillowcase each night, you can help keep your hair under control the next day. This is especially good for those who shower at night and then find themselves frustrated with the bed head they see looking back at them in the mirror the next morning.
Problem: It feels too dried out.
Having curly hair means you rarely (if ever) possess an overly greasy head of hair, but it also means that your hair may feel too dried out. This is because curly hair doesn’t preserve moisture as much or as well as straight hair does.
Solution: Each week, give yourself a pamper evening when you play your favorite music, light your scented candles, do your face masks, and also spend some time doing a moisturizing hair masque.
Problem: You can never get the curls you want.
You dream of your hair bouncing along as you strut down the sidewalk. You know how you want the curls to feel as they are cascading down your shoulders.
Never have you wanted your hair to look limp or dull. But, somehow, even after spending a lot of time styling it, you can’t consistently get the curls you want.
Solution: One suggestion to keep your hair tame and in its curls is to twist a few segments of hair into curl groups as they dry. Additionally, in order to achieve the bouncy curls you desire, make sure to apply products such as hair gel or mousse, before scrunching the ends of your hair. Look for a hair gel that dries and doesn’t make your hair appear hard and crunchy.
What do you do to keep your hair looking good day after day?
Every hair type has pros and cons, but following these tips and learning how to deal with these issues will ensure that you can always leave the house pleased with your look.
