“I hate my curls”, said no woman ever. Unlike straight hair, achieving your best texture with curly or wavy hair is not as simple as wash-and-go. Careful styling is required to make your curls look like they can conquer the world.

Curly hair needs extra effort but ladies, it’s worth it! When styled well, curls can give any other texture a run for their money. Remember that your curls need the perfect amount of hydration and frizz control or else they will just fall flat, thereby ruining the entire look. So, how do you make the most of your hair texture? We’ll tell you!

Frizzy hair no more

The downside of curly hair is that they tend to get frizzy faster than any other texture. Therefore, it’s best to dry curly hair by pressing gently using either a cotton T-shirt or microfiber towel. Avoid using a terrycloth and rubbing rigorously. Doing so can rough up the cuticle and leave you with a frizzy mane.

Silk works wonders

A silk pillow or silk scarf can do the trick in helping you achieve great-looking hair in the morning. Either sleep on a silk pillow or wrap your hair in a silk scarf before going to bed. Silk is gentle on the hair cuticle and at the same time, won’t make the hair fibers rough.

The one thing curly hair needs is moisture. While it is important to condition your hair after every wash, treating your hair to a moisturising and hydrating hair mask once a week is equally important. Get your hands on the Toni&Guy Damaged Repair Reconstruction Hair Mask that promises to give deep conditioning to your tresses, leaving them soft and nourished.

Did you know? Combing your curls can only ruin the texture of your hair. Friction can lead to frizz and breakage, therefore, never brush your curls. To remove tangles, use a wide-tooth comb after applying conditioner to your hair and simply finger-comb dry hair.

Use curling iron for the stray pieces

The problem with curly hair is that there are always a few stray pieces that don’t seem to curl as nicely as the rest. Yes, this can be frustrating! For such strands, use a curling iron to make the curl look more consistent. Image courtesy: Instagram
