Written by Tashika TyagiSep 14, 2021

We read somewhere that curly hair is like a box of chocolate; you never know what you’re going to get! And we believe truer words were never spoken. Will you wake up with bouncy curls or a frizzy mess that calls for an army to tackle? You just never know! But guess what, taming your curly mane doesn’t have to be a nerve-wracking task. Following the right hair care routine and some pro tips can easily help you achieve envious healthy curls.

Wanna learn how? We’ve got you covered. Scroll down for five pro tips on how to keep your curls healthy and bouncy because life isn’t perfect, but at least your curls can be!:

01. Treat your hair to a hair mask

More often than not, curly hair tends to be dry, rough and always in need of extra moisturisation and nourishment. So, regularly deep conditioning with a moisturising hair mask like the Dove Intense Damage Repair Hair Mask once a week can greatly help your curls. Infused with keratin actives, it repairs damage and smoothens the hair, helps detangling and improves manageability. It locks the moisture in your tresses and keeps them from turning frizzy. Use once a week post shampooing and before conditioning and watch your tresses transform.

02. Choose shampoo and conditioner wisely

Your curly mane needs special care, and that means picking your hair care products wisely. Look for products with nourishing ingredients like coconut oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, keratin, etc. Our top pick is the Love Beauty & Planet Natural Argan Oil & Lavender Anti-Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. Made with pure Moroccan argan oil and 100% organic coconut oil, it has all the nourishment your curly hair craves. With no parabens, silicones or dyes, this shampoo and conditioner will tame your curls and nourish them thoroughly. On top of that, the calming scent of hand-cut French lavender will leave your senses delighted. What’s not to love!

03. Choose the right option to dry your hair

Yes, drying your curly hair is a chore that, if not done right, can lead to tangles and frizz. So, if you’re air-drying your hair, use a microfibre towel or cotton t-shirt to squeeze out excess water. If you’re blow-drying your hair, use a diffuser and only blow-dry the ends of your hair — not from the roots. This will ensure you don’t puff up your hair unnecessarily.

04. Trim your hair regularly to avoid split ends

Trimmed and shaped curly hair is healthier and easier to manage. So, while split ends are inevitable in all hair types, trimming your curly hair regularly can help get rid of them and make your hair more manageable and improve its texture as well. Set an appointment for a hair trim every two months, and your hair will surely thank you for it.

05. Pick the right hairstyle

We can’t stress enough that how you decide to style your hair impacts your tresses in general. So, if you have curly hair, make sure you pick a hairstyle that doesn’t crush your curls or requires a lot of heat styling. We suggest going for a simple braid, an easy top knot or even messy half buns.
