So everyone with curly hair knows the struggles, but there are ways to make life slightly easier 😉
- SHAMPOO IS YOUR ENEMY
Cut out shampoo as much as you can, the sulphates and parabens added can really dry out your curls and lessen your growth rate. if you must use shampoo make sure they are sulphate and paraben free.
- CONDITIONER IS YOUR BEST FRIEND
Curly hair needs as must moisture as they can get as they tend to dry out, especially depending in the climate that you live in.
- PRE-POO YOUR HAIR
Whether your hair is curly or straight “pre-pooing’ your hair is vital. Basically this is the process where you use your favourite type of oil (coconut oil, grapeseed oil, olive oil, castor oil etc..) and coat your hair strands and scalp with the oil this also helps to detangle your hair while protecting the hair shafts so your hair doesn’t completely dry out whilst washing. let sit for 30 mins – 2 hours on your hair. Conditioner can also be used as a pre-poo.
- PROTECTIVE HAIRSTYLES AT NIGHT
Honestly protective hairstyles are the best for any time of the day to prevent dryness of your hair. The best night-time protective hairstyle is the “pineapple” this basically “preserves” your curls at night to give you the best 2nd day curls without having to wet and re-style your hair, because we all know how much of a pain that can be.
