If you are a girl blessed with curls, summers can be both joyful as well as frustrating. Frustrating because your curls develop a mind of their own and rebel with all their might. Joyful because on the days they do behave, every girl with flat hair will envy your bouncy locks. Here are some curly hair tips that will coax your hair to behave even on the hottest of summer days.
Summer is when your curls need moisture the most, so avoid using heat styling tools. Try air-drying your hair, or if you must use heat, turn the temperature to minimum before using. Use a diffuser when using a blow dryer, which does not allow the heat to directly touch the hair.
Use products that infuse and put back moisture into your hair. Like the Dove Oxygen Moisture Range which does not allow moisture to escape from your strands.
Use a deep conditioning mask frequently. Once a week, treat your curls to a homemade hair mask as simple as an avocado and honey mask.
take care of split ends and use a curl enhancing cream on the ends and scrunch the ends upwards to enhance the definition of the curls.
You may feel like washing your curly hair often during the sweaty months. But sweaty hair does not necessarily mean your scalp is dirty so decide whether you just want a hair rinse or even a co-wash rather than a full shampoo and condition.
