For decades, straight hair has been viewed as the ideal form of beauty in reference to hair. Until a few years ago, the hair products that dominated the shelves were primarily for women with straight hair. Thankfully, times are changing as more products and services are dedicated to treating curly hair. Whether you’re a hairdresser or a person with curly hair, consider some of the key points to remember when you’re dealing with beautiful curls.
Curls are Prone to Frizz
Depending on the type of curl a person has, it can be prone to frizziness. However, a person can still wear their beautiful curls without the frizz. In order to prevent frizz, use the right products that specialize in eliminating frizz. Even the drying process can play a role in whether the hair frizzes up or not. Instead of allowing hair to air-dry, consider using a microfiber towel or a t-shirt to wrap the hair after it’s been cleansed and conditioned. Before using the towel, wring the water out of the tresses as much as possible.
Curly Hair Requires More Conditioning
When it’s time to work with curly hair, a great conditioning treatment is an important step to keep within the process. Whether it’s a deep conditioning session that lasts for half an hour or a three-minute conditioning treatment in the shower, never skip an appointment with conditioner. It’s also wise to find the right conditioner for the specific type of curls. Consider private label hair care products that offer the best results.
Curly Hair is More Fragile
Never brush or detangle curls while they’re dry. It’s always best to use some leave-in conditioner, water or another product that provides some slip. This will make the process a lot easier and less painful (depending on how tight the coil is). It’s also wise to consider using the fingers to detangle as brushes and combs have the power to rip out more hair than necessary.
Curly Hair Lengths Impact the Behavior
The length of the curl has a direct impact on how it will behave. When the hair is shorter, it’s not uncommon for the coil to be tighter. When the hair is longer, the curl tends to be a bit looser. There are exceptions, but this typically tends to be the case.
It’s amazing to see so many people embrace their natural curl patterns and textures. As more people learn about the ways to improve the health and vitality of their curls, the curly-hair movement will continue to thrive, inspire and shift the way the world views curly hair.
