Curly hair tends to be drier or lacks adequate moisture simply because of the shape of the curls. They’re lifted and sit away from the scalp. This makes them prone to environmental damage and dehydration, and it also makes it tougher for the sebum (natural oils) on the scalp to get distributed towards the ends.
Air drying is your best friend and flat irons are your worst enemy. Flat irons will work against the natural texture of your hair, so instead, use a diffuser, or even better, a curling iron or tong with barrels the same size as your natural curls. Focus on styling your strands instead of overworking the hair close to the scalp because the crown of the hair is most prone to frizz.
The biggest and most common mistake is when curly-haired girls use regular haircare products. Your hair texture and makeup are different than others and therefore, have very different needs when it comes to cleansing and conditioning.
Not just any mousse, gel or cream will do the trick when it comes to styling your curls, especially if you want them to last all day. If you’ve gone through the steps and done everything right, yet still find that your curls are frizzy or open out in a few hours, chances are that your styling product isn’t heavy-duty enough.
Surprisingly, switching to a satin or silk pillowcase is a big step in taming your frizzy curls. Why? Because the fibres in cotton pillowcases tend to be rough and cause friction in your strands as you toss and turn through the night while you sleep. Interesting, right?
