If you have naturally curly hair or prefer to style your hair curly, it can be a problem to keep your curls frizz-free. Humidity, weather, workouts, and simple genetics can cause frizz to wreak havoc on your hair. The key is to frizz-proof your hair so your curls can stay smooth, shiny and perfect.
The first key is that you need to be gentle with your hair from washing to styling. Be gentle as you shampoo and condition your hair and don’t rub it with a towel after. Gently squeeze the excess water out to keep your hair’s cuticle smooth. A frizz-reducing shampoo and conditioner, like Keranique’s Curl Preserve Shampoo and Conditioner, can also help.
After your shower, you’ll want to detangle your hair when it is still damp. You can also detangle your hair while it has conditioner in the shower if you prefer, or if your hair gets really tangled. You can also use a detangling spray or leave-in conditioner. But again, while using a comb to detangle, be very gentle. Work your way from the ends to the root.
After you’ve detangled your hair, use a product that will help shape your curls and keep humidity and other factors at bay. You can use a mousse, styling spray, or serum. If your hair naturally dries curly, you can then let it air dry. If you need a little boost or prefer to dry your hair, use a diffuser. This can help you dry it in sections and gently bounce the hair as you dry for extra defined curls.
There you have it! If you want a little extra shine, finish with a shine spray.
