Short curly hairstyles are so much fun and can add life to your wavy locks. Curls can seem like a burden at times, but they are really a blessing if you have the right look.
Do you have wild, naturally curly hair? Do you find it harder to tame your tresses the longer your hair gets? Have your curly locks become completely unmanageable? How about a new shorter haircut to take remove some of the dead weight from your curly tresses? The longer your hair, the duller your curls, right? Simply cutting your hair can add new life to your curly hair!
As well, how you care for your curls has a lot to do with how they look. Here are some tips from expert stylists to help keep your curls happy and healthy.
12 Helpful Tips for Girls With Curls
- Don’t wash your hair every day. Once or twice a week should do it. You can use dry shampoo and leave-in conditioners on the days you don’t wash your hair.
- Wash your hair with lukewarm or even cold water to prevent breakage.
- Sleep on silk or satin sheets.
- Trim your ends every six to eight weeks to avoid dead ends which can cause your curls to lose their luster.
- Pull your hair back in a loose braid or ponytail tied with a scarf or ribbon at night.
- Comb your curly locks from the bottom up to keep your curls from frizzing. This also helps to gently remove tangles.
- Use products that are specifically designed for curly hair and are free of sulfates.
- Let your hair air dry as much as possible.
- If you have to blow dry your hair, use a diffuser and blow dry your hair upside down.
- Wrap your hair in a shirt instead of a towel to prevent breakage and frizz.
- Never brush your hair. Use a wide tooth comb or your fingers.
- Keep your hair hydrated with leave in conditioners. Remember to treat the ends.
