5 Legit Hacks To Tame Frizzy Curls
Perfectly formed ringlets that are soft to the touch and shine with health is how we would like our curls to be. However, more often than not, curly hair looks like a bomb exploded on our head leaving us with a halo of frizzy mess. Check out these 5 totally awesome hacks to get the defined, healthy, frizz-free curls of your dreams:
1. Switch To Hydrating Products
Most curly-haired folks will swear by the benefits of adopting the no-poo (no shampoo) or co-washing (washing with conditioner) method for their curly hair. If you still can’t give up your bottle of shampoo though, try switching it with a cleansing conditioner instead. Cleansing conditioners have mild cleansing agents instead of harsh detergents and are free of sulphates. They clean dirt and product build-up without stripping your scalp of its moisture. Make way for healthy, silky strands ya’ll!
2. Use A Diffuser
Letting your hair air dry is convenient only if you wash your hair the night before (don’t sleep on wet hair though. It will dry in wonky shapes). If you’re going to blow-dry your hair, make sure you do so with a diffuser. Flip your hair upside down and use the diffuser as if you are scrunching your hair. Using a diffuser adds volume minus the frizz.
3. Invest In Products That Control Frizz
Whoever thinks curly hair is low-maintenance is obviously under a great misconception. Finding products that work for your type of texture is nothing short of a miracle. The key to healthy-looking gorgeous curls is in investing in products that work for you. While flyaways make it look like you have a halo around your head, they are actually dry and frizzy ends. Tame flyaways with serums that will soften your hair without weighing it down.
4. Detangle Curls When They Are Wet
The worst thing you do to your curls is trying to take out knots from your hair when your hair is dry. Try combing out the kinks when your hair is wet. Even better use a detangling conditioner after your shampoo and then try taking out the knots.
5. Chuck The Brush And Get A Wide-Toothed Comb Instead
Most women are obsessed with combing their hair multiple times a day, which if I’m honest, is the death spell for textured hair. Not only does this add to your frizz, it also messes with your texture and ruins your lovely curls. Avoid brushing your hair too often, and chuck the brush altogether. They rip and shred your strands. Use a wide-toothed comb instead!
