How To Banish Frizzy, Curly Hair
Curly hair girls know the struggle: perfect curls one second and frizzy, rebellious curls the next. If you’re sick of taming your lengths every morning, we’ve found the best ways to keep your curls perfect without hours of maintenance.
Moisture, Moisture, Moisture
The key to frizz-free curls is MOISTURE. It’s a mantra most curly girls know, but to keep your hair hydrated, it’s essential to get the right moisture. Start your routine with a sulphate-free shampoo, a gentle yet powerful alternative to regular shampoo. Sulphates are the lathering component in shampoo, and while they assist in cleaning the hair, they can be overly stripping to curly hair, taking away essential natural oils. This result in dry, frizzy hair, which can wreck your bouncy curls.
We recommend the Charcoal Revitalising Shampoo with purifying charcoal and argan oil for a deep, moisturised clean.
Follow With a Primer
You use a primer in your makeup routine, so why not for your hair? Depending on the brand, a primer will create a barrier against heat if you blow-dry your curls while softening and detangling knots. It’s a perfect option if you’re sick of dealing with endless knots and a great way to keep your hair hydrated. Apply the primer to wet hair, then blow dry your lengths with a diffuser to avoid over-drying the hair cuticle.
For an effective primer, we recommend the Oribe Run Through Detangling Primer.
Use the Right Hairbrush
Even if you use the right products and brush regularly, those tangles can still be a pain. To get through those knots, you’ll need to use the right brush to reduce damage. It’s best to detangle while wet after applying a primer using a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush to reduce friction. Separate the hair into small sections, then work with a wide-tooth brush or comb to detangle gently. If you’re still struggling, try using your fingers to loosen the knots before brushing.
We recommend the Tangle Teezer with scalp massaging bristles to reduce tugging and pulling.
Define With Oil
Sometimes you need a little extra nourishment in your curls, so after your hair is dry and styled add a few drops of hair oil. For shiny, soft lengths, you’ll want an oil with moisturising ingredients like argan oil to keep your hair healthy without weighing it down. We recommend Revive Oil with argan oil and omega-3 for silky, light hair.
