There is one thing that curly-haired girls should not be worried about, and that is volume. They are blessed with naturally thick hair that’s super voluminous. Having said that, there are exceptions when curly-haired girls can have hair that is fine, yet curly, and prone to breakage. Thin, curly hair needs more than just moisture and hydration to look bouncy again. So while your hydrating routine will help smoothen and soften coarse texture, a volumising routine will make sure that well-hydrated hair does not fall limp and flat. So, how exactly are you supposed to balance moisture and bounce in your mane? We have a few tips…
- 01. Use products formulated to fix dry, damaged hair
- 02. Pick the right styling products
- 03. Speaking of styling — always protect your hair!
- 04. Apply oil to the ends
- 05. Shake things up with a dry shampoo
01. Use products formulated to fix dry, damaged hair
Hair that is thin and coarse and highly porous can be prone to damage and breakage. So, to make sure that your hair remains healthy, you need to add a repair element to your routine. The TIGI Bed Head Urban Anti-Dotes Resurrection 3 range, consisting of shampoo, conditioner and treatment mask is the perfect pick for the job. Formulated specifically to boost moisture, repair damage and soften frazzled locks, this range will take your hair from sad to rad in just a few washes. Wash and condition at least twice a week and alternate between a conditioner and treatment mask for best results.
02. Pick the right styling products
Curly-haired girls often find it difficult to style their mane. If you’re looking for definition and body, just use a curl-boosting formula like the TIGI Bed Head On The Rebound Curl Recall Cream. It reforms dropped curls and holds their shape for up to 72 hours, giving your tresses lots of volume and character.
03. Speaking of styling — always protect your hair!
Do you know which kind of curly hair is not able to hold its natural bounce? A dull and dehydrated one! Yes, heat styling can take away a lot of essential moisture from your hair, and if it is already fine in texture, you are in for trouble. Protect your hair, immediately and in the long run, by spritzing the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray before styling your tresses.
04. Apply oil to the ends
The popular consensus says that hair oil should be applied primarily to the scalp, with the mid-lengths to ends covered occasionally. But a lightweight oil, like the coconut-infused Clinic Plus Non Sticky Nourishing Hair Oil, can also help fortify the bonds in your hair when applied to the ends. Additionally, you could also comb your hair at the end of the oiling session to detangle the knots and make your hair look bouncy and full of volume.
05. Shake things up with a dry shampoo
It is not recommended to wash curly hair too often as it can dry out your hair. That’s why we recommend investing in a good dry shampoo; our personal favourite is the Dove Fresh and Floral Dry Shampoo. Not only does the formula get rid of scalp greasiness, but it also adds volume to thin, dry hair and keeps your hair smelling amazing. Now, who wouldn’t want that?
