Don’t Get It Twisted - This is How You Should Take Care of Your Curly Hair
Curly hair rocks, but it can be pretty challenging to deal with. It takes some work to get it to look just right, and if you’re naturally curly-headed, we don’t have to tell you this twice - you’ve learned it the hard way. You’ll also be hard-pressed to figure out the perfect products and routine for your high-maintenance coils. Even after hours of styling and globs of product, it can still look like you just got out of bed. How can you make sure that your curls are always looking gorgeous, glossy and full of life?
“Curly” is a fairly general term to use when describing hair types. It can cover everything from loose, beachy waves, to tight, corkscrew coils. In order to figure out what products are best for your lovely strands, you first need to determine what type of hair you really have. Is your hair straight at the root and folds into gentle curls towards the bottom? Is your hair so tightly coiled that it produces some sort of zig-zag pattern? These details should give you an idea of what ingredients work best on your hair, how often you should wash and what to look out for in terms of damage. There are many different types of curls, but the basic principles of caring for them pretty much stay consistent.
How can I make my hair curly naturally
Hydration Is Key
Unlike straight hair, naturally curly hair tends to be on the dry side. That’s because the oils produced in your scalp have a hard time reaching the ends of your hair due to the twists and turns it meets on the way down the shaft. To keep your hair hydrated and full of weightless moisture, consider using a deep conditioner such as Pai-Shau’s Supreme Revitalizing Mask. Our nourishing treatment deeply moisturizes and hydrates your strands from root to tip without weighing it down.
Definition Is A Game Changer
Without clear definition, curls can quickly turn into a big, frizzy mess. Defined curls have less frizz, maintain a natural style pattern, and bounce with volume. Gorgeous definition can be achieved by using the right products. Pai-Shau’s Style Soufflé will take your curls to the next level. Its nourishing and reparative properties help calm frizz while offering medium control to create bouncy curls that last all day long.
Sulfates are a type of chemical that is added to hair products to help create lather. While they may do a great job of developing foam, sulfates can actually make your hair dry and brittle by stripping it of its natural oils. This can be especially dangerous for curly hair because of its innate dryness. Curly hair relies on its natural oils to help control frizz and add shine. Sulfates should be avoided. Read the ingredients before you buy any hair product! Opt for a sulfate free shampoo like Pai-Shau’s Replenishing Hair Cleanser or Opulent Volume Hair Cleanser that help create a luxurious lather without nasty sulfates.
Now that you have a few tips on how to care for your curls, it’s all about sticking to a regimen that is right for you and your hair. Curly hair can go awry when it isn’t getting taken care of, so make sure to continuously provide love and kindness for your hair with the right products. Then go out and rock those locks!
