Ever had a bad hair day? What about a bad curly hair day? This guide is for those of us who have been blessed, (Or cursed!), with curly hair. If you fall under this category, you know first hand how unruly and frustrating curly hair can be. Good news! There are a few ways to keep that hair under control. Follow these steps and enjoy your natural curls:
- Don’t Brush It. Okay so this may seem a little misleading because of course you have to brush your hair, curly or not. But what will help is if you brush it before you take a shower instead of after. By doing this you are getting out all of the tangles and not pulling your curls out after you have gotten your hair wet. If you do this you are ensuring that your curls will fall more naturally and you won’t end up with unmanageable hair.
- Use conditioner. Instead of weighing hair down and causing lots of build up or that awful “too much hairspray” look, try using a dime sized amount of conditioner to replace gel. By doing this you are not only nourishing your hair but you are letting the curls form on their own and you are not drying your hair out.
- Use a diffuser. Those with curly hair know how important this is. When you use a regular blow dryer on curly hair all you are doing is making it bigger and wild. Try using a curl diffuser, it dries hair from the root first which ensures It will lay more flat. A fan favorite is the Bio Ionic Universal Diffuser, available here.
These are some simple tips to help you get those curls under control. By following them you will be able to focus on more important things like accomplishing goals and inspiring others. Instead of complaining about your hair you can be on to conquering the world.
