Hair Care for Naturally Curly Hair

Jun 19, 2008
While many women want long, curly hair, many don't realize that the reality of having this type of hairstyle can be both a blessing and a curse as far as hair care is concerned. It's very easy for curly hair to become frizzy, necessitating specific hair care techniques to combat this problem.

First of all, many times curly hair becomes frizzy simply because of the length of the hair. Have you ever considered cutting your hair shorter in order to make your hairstyle more manageable? Many women have, and it has provided them a better amount of control over frizzy hair problems.

One way a long, curly head of hair can become unnaturally frizzy is by the use of strange chemicals or products that one may not be normally familiar with. The best way to keep hair from getting away from you is to "let it be." Allow it to simply curl on its own, and don't try to straighten it with hot irons or other means.

Moisture is a curly head's best friend, and hair care products that are specific to curly hair should be used. Use the best quality shampoos and conditioners that you can find, which will bring down the problem of frizz by keeping the hair moisturized and full of essential vitamins and minerals.

If you decide that you want to use clarifying shampoos on your hair, your best bet is to make sure that you do not use it too many times per month. Use a normal brand of shampoo for normal day-to-day hair care, and only use the clarifying products once per month if you have curly hair. Another word about clarifying shampoos: Any shampoos that aren't transparent should not be used; these shampoos may contain detergents or other chemicals that may reduce your hair's moisture content, leading to problems with frizz.

In order to keep the frizz down, only run a comb through your hair when it's wet, and use that comb while it's wet to remove any tangles that may have developed after your bath or shower. These tangles, if left to dry, can turn curls into a nightmare to control.

Of course, above all, eat a good diet full of vitamins and other nutrients. This applies to your overall health outside of simple hair care, however a good balanced diet will help with the health of your hair.

I hope that this article has given you good insight in how to handle curly hair, along with the proper use of hair care products that can be used with this style.
