Maintaining curly hair can be a challenge. Curly hair tends to be more fragile than straight hair, so harsh styling products can leave hair looking and feeling over dry and damaged. Here are some great tips from Redken for keeping curls under control:
- Wash your hair with cold water to avoid frizz
- Part and comb your hair in the shower while the conditioner is still in to prevent breakage. Use a wide-toothed comb.
- To prevent frizz, do not rub your hair with the towel but gently dry out the access water.
- Use a diffuser on your hairdryer. Only dry your hair until slightly damp to prevent frizz and brittleness. Then apply cool air to hair to seal the cuticle.
Bring your dry, brittle ringlets back to life by nourishing them with products and treatments specifically formulated to enhance curly hair. Here are some you may wish to try:
