Isn’t it highly frustrating that you have an event to attend in the evening, but your hair will just not cooperate! They tangle locks end up resembling a broom. If this is your story which is same as all those who have unruly curly or frizzy hair, then you don’t have to worry anymore.
Here are some easy and manageable ways that you can opt for taming your hair and look effortlessly pretty. Here we go:
- Say NO to brushes
The first and foremost thing to do is to remove a brush from your dresser and replace it with a wide tooth comb. The brush damages your curly hair by breaking them. It’s really hard to untangle those knots and what you need are two important ingredients- patience and care. Get yourself those wide tooth combs and use them for untangling.
Show some love and care, and the frizz will definitely become controllable. You can comb while in a shower because combing dry hair is just another way to damage your unruly hair.
- Use a conditioner
Conditioners offer a magical solution for hair, which applies to all hair types. You would be able to register the change after every single wash. Like your skin, your hair also needs moisturizing. This is especially true when it comes to curly hair as these are bound to get dry faster than other hair types. Therefore, conditioning your hair is the trick to moisturize and tame them.
Invest in a good conditioner. After shampooing, apply an amount equal to the size of a penny evenly on every single strand of your hair. Use your fingers or comb for equal distribution.
- Try hair Oil or serums
A good hair care routine definitely includes hair oil or serums; just a conditioner is not enough to moisturize your hair, particularly, if they are extremely frizzy and curly. Such hair set the need for extra moisturizing. Invest in either a good natural oil like argon or almond oil, and apply them. Alternatively, you can purchase a good serum.
Hair becomes less frizzy if they lock in the hydration, which is why after you have pat dried your hair, or when they are clean, oiling them with good hair oil is a good option.
- Get a trim:
Hair is greatly damaged if they start having split ends, therefore, you really need to be in contact with a good hair stylist who can guide you, and give you a suitable hair trim too. It’s advisable to get your hair chopped every 6-8 weeks, but if not possible, get to the stylist before the tips start becoming dead.
Next time when you get a cut, make sure that you keep the length that is good according to the weather.
- Avoid Towels:
Many hairstylists and professionals recommend avoiding towels, as their rough texture can easily damage our hair and make them weak. The friction that is created by the towel’s texture only leads to further hair breakage and damage. In the long haul, this will ultimately make your hair frizzy.
It is advisable to use a soft cloth. Use either an old t-shirt or a soft cotton pillowcase, and pat dry your hair. Or, run your finger through your hair to get the excess water out.
- Don’t burn them:
Prolong use of appliances like straighteners and relaxers severely damages your hair. It will not only kill their natural shine but make them extremely rough while destroying their texture too. When styling your hair, try to avoid these appliances as much as you can because they only lead to breakage.
Therefore, limit the use of hair styling appliances as much as you can. However, get yourself a diffuser. This comes in handy when there is no time for letting your lock dry freely.
