I have always had a love-hate relationship with my hair. Naturally thick and curly, it can be a monster to deal with, especially living in Florida with the high levels of humidity. After years of spending way to much time in the bathroom with flat irons and blow dryers, I decided to embrace my curls and stop fighting them. Believe it or not, I just got a diffuser a few months ago and have been loving the way it leaves my hair. Although I still get frizz because of the climate I live in, my curly hair has never looked better and I have found many tip and tricks on Pinterest. A few months ago, I found a pin from Seventeen that features some great Curly Hair Tips. While some of the tips are not for everyone, I have had great success and my hair has never looked better.
Here are some of the tips I have been using:
- Keep hair in good health with regular trims and weekly deep-therapy treatments.
- The best way to style your curls is to divide your hair into at least five sections. Then, apply styling products through curls, section by section, with your fingers. Use a quarter-size amount of your lotion, gel, or mousse according to your curl type.
- Let your hair air-dry or use a diffuser after applying styling products.
- Use a finishing pomade or serum to hold the style and boost shine.
For me, the most important tip has been to keep up with my regular trims. My hair has been much healthier, especially since I am not damaging it with blow dryers and flat irons. I have finally grown to love my curly locks after 20 years of fighting them. The time I have saved in the bathroom by not straightening my hair has made my life much more enjoyable and stress free.Pin It
