The Ultimate Curly Hair Routine For Good Hair Days, Every Day!
Got curly hair problems? I’m sure this humidity is making it worse!
While we would love to believe that one miracle product can erase all our hair care woes, in reality, that’s just not how it works. It takes a host of products to build a great hair routine, especially when it’s as unmanageable as curly hair can be.
That being said, it’s the envy of most women with “boring” straight hair. So, I guess the grass is always greener on the other side. Personally, I feel, you should embrace the curls and wear them to the best of your ability with a quick routine that won’t take up too much time of your day.
Use a shampoo that’s made for curls, something that adds moisture and shine to your hair. Curly hair is naturally drier and doesn’t need to be washed as often. So, stick to washing it around 3 times a week, not more.
Deep conditioning is obviously very important for dry hair. Opt for a conditioner that is made to penetrate and give hydration to curly hair.
3. Deep Conditioning
Once, or ideally, twice a week, start adding a deep conditioning hair mask to your shampoo routine. This will give you a much-needed boost of moisture. After shampoo-ing, or after both, shampoo and conditioner, leave this on your hair for about 3 to 5 minutes.
4. Leave-In Cream & Drying
Pat your hair dry, try to avoid rubbing, as this creates friction. If possible, use a towel that is super soft and light, preferably something rather thin, kind of like a blanket. Once your hair isn’t soaking wet, work some leave-in serum / cream into your hair and scrunch your hair. Try to avoid your scalp, but get product evenly on all of your hair, from top to bottom.
Use a diffuser, attached to your hair dryer to create pretty curls. This will add some style to your look. Just hold your hair down and work the hot air from the diffuser into it by using your fingers to twirl strands and scrunch your hair. This doesn’t have to be done every time you wash your hair, but it only takes about 10 minutes, as you don’t have to wait till your hair is completely dry.
