Who doesn’t want to look flawless and flaunt their beautiful curls 24/7? These tips will help you look perfect in your curly weave for every occasion!
Condition and squish generously!
Curly hair lacks moisture naturally that’s why it needs a little extra boost of hydration.
Curly girls notice their hair getting dull and limp quite often but don’t be alarmed! You’re not alone and this is nothing a little regular deep conditioning can’t fix.
You can deep condition with a hair mask or natural methods every other day if you feel like your hair is extra thirsty.
Tip: if you have any special events coming up, prep your hair by deep conditioning regularly for at least a month prior to the event.
Avoid heat based styling
This might seem like a long shot, especially if you’re obsessed with your curling iron, but too much heat damage, isn’t good for the long run.
The best part about curls is that they already have a lot of texture and all they need is gentle manipulation.
Take your favorite styling products and use your fingers to create curls on the crown or wherever you see frizz.
Detangle with love
Whenever you wash your hair, remember to a) go easy on the shampoo, because it dries your hair out and b) detangle in the shower with a wide tooth comb.
The best way to detangle them is to start from the bottom and work your way up to the roots. This reduces the chances of causing your hair to break and get damaged unnecessarily.
Make sure you provide ample support to your attachment so you don’t tug at it too much!
Don’t let the frizz get you down, it’s totally normal. To calm it down, especially when you have to go out, you can try natural methods.
Our favorite is using a walnut sized amount of natural oil with a drop of essential oil and rubbing it all over the hair, concentrating on the part which frizzes the most.
