Curly hair can be either a blessing and a burden, depending on what you know about styling it. Not all curly hair is alike, so what works on one person may not necessarily work on another person; the best way to go about finding out what products are best for you is talking to your stylist, but we've put together some tips and tricks that everyone with curly hair can use. In the same respect, you might need to use different products at different times of the year - in the summer, you'll need something to help control frizziness, and in the winter you'll need something to help moisturize your hair.
The three C's of taking care of curly hair are vital in beautiful, healthy hair: cleansing, conditioning and controlling.
Firstly, you want a shampoo that won't strip away any natural essential oils, and is a fairly neutral formula. Secondly, you want to put moisture back into your hair, especially in the winter when the air is drier than normal. Lastly, you want to be able to control the frizz in your hair.
While some people claim that not using any shampoo is best for those with curly hair, it is not recommended. The dust and pollution in the air will clig to your hair. Instead of not using any shampoo, try to find a product that is gentle on your hair. This will clean your hair, but not strip it of essential oils that help to control frizzy hair. A gentle, neutral shampoo (something that is sulfate-free) can even be used daily if needed.
Some curly hair needs a moisturizing shampoo, while other curly hair needs a strengthening shampoo. Conditioners should always be used when you wash your hair. Even if you only wash your hair every other day, make sure that you use a conditioner every day. Lastly, you're going to want some type of product to control your frizz.
