Protecting and maintaining curly hair is no easy task. One day it is springing with joy, all happy and shiny and the next day it's a frizzy mess! If you are a girl with curls, you know exactly what we mean. We know hair wash days are a complete body workout for you, by the time you wash, dry, comb and apply hair care products to your mane, it’s almost midnight. And yet when you get up in the morning, your hair's a ball of frizz.
Here are some ways to protect your curls, so you have a peaceful sleep and wake up with stunning curls in the morning.
Spiral hair ties
Believe it or not, but spiral hair ties are a godsend that retain the hairstyle you want without making a dent. Pull all your curls on top of your head, as high as possible and secure using a spiral hair tie. This is also called the pineapple method, as the hairstyle looks like a pineapple. Your curls will stay in place all night and when you take off the hair tie the next day, your curls will still be intact.
A silk pillowcase is an absolute must-have for all hair types, but all the more essential for those with curly hair. The reason silk pillow cases are recommended is because it causes less friction and therefore reduces frizz. Less friction also means no tangles and super shiny hair.
