Curly Hair Got You Down?

written by Lancer

Here's a Great Tip- If your curls are limp and not bouncing with joy, a clarifying treatment will perk them right up.

I have curly hair also, and most of my life has been spent fighting it instead of trying to understand and work with it. I use Kevin Murphy's Maxi Wash exfoliating shampoo once a week to get the product out and give my curls a fresh canvas to work on- it does make a noticeable difference!

Great Styling Tips: After shampooing and conditioning your hair, leave your hair extremely wet, and apply a leave-in conditioner to soften any hard hold product you might be using in your hair.

  • Apply any styling product to your hair. *If using more than one, be sure to thoroughly apply one product before applying another, unless you can easily cocktail them in your hands (some products separate when trying this.)

  • Don't skimp- apply ALOT of product to your hair. Make sure to apply your hair product to your hands as if you're applying lotion to them- get the product through, behind, and around all of your fingers, because curly hair is 360 degrees- your product application ought to be too!

  • Using a very wide toothed comb, comb the product upwards into your hair for added height. *Don't over-comb, as this will interrupt your natural curl.

  • If your hair is flat on top, and you'd like to add height, clip curly hair sections at the root before blow drying.

  • Speaking of blow drying, ALWAYS use a diffuser attachment on your hair dryer when drying curly hair textures. They make great ones now, and most consumer diffusers are universal.
