SO WHAT CAN YOU DO ABOUT IT
Believe it or not, curly hair is one of the most fragile hair types. It breaks easily and dry’s out very quickly.
Curly hair is a diva. It packs a sad at every little thing. So love and respect it a little more and it will be putty in your hands.
So have a try at these tips and see how you go.
Frizzy hair is crying out for more hydration and lots of it.You can not use enough conditioner on curly hair. It just drinks it in. So keep reapplying leave in conditioner as and when needed. Curly hair when hydrated enough will go back to a curl and not a frizz.
Wash your hair less. Curly hair hates being washed. So try rinsing hair in between washes.Span out your washes and try to get to washing it just once a week. Persevere it will take a while as the natural oils in the scalp will eventually slow down and not produce as much oil as washing more frequently.
Do a cool/cold last rinse as it shuts down the cuticles avoiding frizz and defining the curl.
Throw away brushes and combs and use your fingers to de-tangle the hair when it is wet.It avoids breakage of the delicate hair.
Use less/no styling product and use leave in conditioners to cut frizz.
Curly hair really is a wash and go, the more you mess with it the more non-compliant it will be. So less is more. Wash/damp down ,de-tangle with fingers put in your leave in conditioner scrunch and walk away.
Argon oils can also be used to feed and give strength and shine to the hair.
Doing these simple things will cut down on frizz and split ends and hopefully keep your hair more manageable.
When hair starts tangling at the ends and you are finding it difficult to get through, then it is time for a hair trim.
