3 Tips To Style Your Curly Hair With Ease
So, you've decided to stop chemically and physically straightening your curls. You've done the big chop and now you're faced with a head full of curls that you don't know what to do with.
Here are 3 tips to help you style your curls with ease.
1. ALWAYS WET (dampen) YOUR HAIR Manipulating your hair while it's dry is a no no, because it leads to breakage. See, with curls, the sebum (from your scalp) that would normally nourish your hair doesn't get there quick enough, so your hair is naturally dry. A very quick antidote to dry hair is moisture and a great source of moisture is water. To nourish your hair further, boost your water with additions that soften and help detangle your hair.
We love DIY hair recipes because you're in control of what you place on you and your little one's hair. This spritz is great for any curly head, yes even bubs:
Organic SUKU Nourishing Spritz Recipe
1/3 Distilled / Filtered Water
1/3 Certified Organic Jojoba
Your hair is now damp from your amazing Organic SUKU Nourishing Spritz Recipe ... next step is to detangle.
Detangle Friends You Can't Live Without
- Wide Toothed Comb
- Certified Organic Shea Butter (for stubborn knots)
Use your Wide Toothed Comb to get any stubborn knots out of your hair. GENTLY start the detangling process from the end of the strand and as your hair gets detangled, slowly make your way to the scalp. You can do this section by section as well.
If you find that your knots are way too stubborn, put the Wide Toothed Comb down, add a small amount of the Shea Butter (which creates amazing slip and nourishment), and start finger detangling. Then continue the process with your wide toothed comb until your whole head is tangle free!
One majour tip about this process - BE GENTLE, TAKE YOUR TIME, .... and BE GENTLE.
To make any detangling process easier you do need to incorporate trims (at least once every 3 months). Trims don't have to be majour; dusting off a few mm each time will get rid of the oldest part of your hair that generally is dryer, easier to knot and developing split ends.
So there we have it! Here's your summary:
1. ONLY MANIPULATE CURLY HAIR WHEN ITS DAMP
2. YOU MUST DETANGLE
3. DUST OFF THE DEAD CURLY ENDS
Now ... how are you going to style your hair!?!
