Some Tips For Styling Curly Hair
1. Ditch The Heat – heat styling tools such as flat irons and curling irons do nothing but damage your locks and turn your hair into a dry, brittle, unhealthy mess. So skip them.
2. When conditioning, apply the conditioner starting about an inch below the root, and apply all the way down to the tips of your hair. Don’t apply too much conditioner, this can result in your hair becoming greasy.
3. If you’re in a hurry and have no time to let your hair air dry, use a blow-dryer attachment when drying. A hair dryer can be your worst nightmare if you have curly hair as it simply makes your hair go POOF!
4. Curling mousse and gels are the best curl defining products and for creating those scrunched beachy waves.
5. Be careful when using clarifying shampoos. The sulfates present in them can be damaging, and will leave the hair dry.
