Do you have curly hair? Woah! That’s admiring. Curly hair can be a real blessing, but sometime, the curls might seem to be rebellious and unruly, as if they have a mind of their own. They might dance and twirl in different directions which makes it hard for you to manage them and keep them in place. Don’t worry, they just need some extra care, effort, affection, and oh lots of love! Don’t worry, we’ll guide you with some real strategies with the help of which you can manage your curly locks and keep them lively.
Hair care strategy for curly locks
Pre shower preparation
Before washing your curly hair, never forget to detangle the strands. Curly hair gets more prone to damage when not treated the right way and they get more tangled than straight hair. If you have a loose curl pattern and the texture of your hair is fine, then running fingers through the hair will do its job. But if you’ve got some really tight curl patterns with a coarse texture, then it’s better to use a wide-tooth comb to detangle the strands. Using oil or a detangling spray will help a lot. Now you might think that what will detangling do anyway? Detangled hair will experience a gentle washing process and it will not lock up the water. Thus you won’t have to see your hair falling out madly.
Hair wash routine for curly strands
Washing hair is the most important part of any hair care routine. Clean hair absorbs the most nutrition and moisture. Curly hair is often said to be ‘’thirsty’’, so there are rare chances that they’ll weigh down by the oil. Due to their curl pattern the oil doesn’t usually pass down to the length ends rather, it sometimes gets trapped in the scalp. So how often should you wash them then? Ideally, for thick and tight curls, washing once or twice a week is enough. And if you’ve got loose and soft curl patterns then wash 2-3 times a week for good hair health. However, how often you should wash your hair also depends on the environment you live in, the health of your hair, and the underlying body conditions.
Suitable shampoo for curly strands
In the case of curly hair, we need to be more careful and picky while choosing the products. Go for the ones specifically designed for curly strands or simply pick gentle, mild shampoos, free of toxic elements. Be aware of shampoos that have sulfates and parabens in them as curly hair already tends to be dry, and sulfates have the tendency to cause even more dryness, itchiness, and inflammation. It strips away the natural oils from the hair.
Parabens, on the other hand, can cause scalp conditions like dandruff and dermatitis which ultimately distinguishes the hair’s natural shine and cause hair loss. Thus for your hair that is curly mild shampoos are the savior. That is why Eazicare pH-6 sulfate free shampoo is designed. It won’t strip away the natural oils from your curly hair and protect them from irritation, damage, and hair fall since it’s free of sulfates as well as parabens and other salts.
Conditioning the curly locks is the key to beautiful hair
Wouldn’t you want to see your hair naturally bouncing and feeling full of life? For that conditioning, the locks are the ultimate key.
Secondly, if you feel like your curl patterns dry up just too much and remain frizzy. It is good to opt for shampoos that contain keratin complexes that will help hair to maintain its natural moisture. Trust us, keratin is mandatory for hair. Eazicare keratin complex conditioner softens the curls, detangles them, and hydrates them by infusing the much-needed keratin into the hair. It will definitely make your curls sway in the air.
Power of deep conditioning treatment on curly locks
Come on, now show some affection. Since it’s getting hard to manage your locks, and the frizz is flying in different directions then it’s time to go for a deep conditioning treatment. Deep intensive treatments that include hair masks have a thicker consistency that is made to give curly locks, long-lasting effects as it has the power to penetrate deep into the hair shaft. Eazicare intensive deep hair mask has ingredients like Aloe Vera and Argan Oil that not just leave a lasting effect but it gives shine to the surface and conditions deeply the hair cuticles.
- Pro tip: When doing hair massage, use plant oils like olive oil, coconut oil, argan oil, sesame oil, and glycerine for keeping your locks shiny, manageable, and moisturized.
Treat curly locks with keratin treatment
Remember, a keratin treatment is not a straightening procedure. Sure it provides smoothness, moisture, and shine to the hair by infusing protein but you shouldn’t take it for straightening. If you feel like your curls are getting frizzy, porous, and dull, do some research on keratin treatment, its benefits, precautions, and more to understand that it’s perfectly ideal for your unique curls as well.
- Use silk or satin pillowcases and headscarves. This will keep your locks intact and will protect hair from friction, creating low chances of hair breakage.
- Loose braids and twists are curly hair’s best friend. The hair gets secure in a braid causing no more friction against the bedding and other hair follicles. This will keep the structure of your curly hair quite stable. Also, braiding wet locks gives a very subtle look to the locks when kept overnight.
- Never comb wet hair because the hair is more prone to breakage at that time. Let the hair air dry then use a special brush or wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair.
- Avoid the excessive use of heat styling tools.
- Use a hair serum to protect hair and lock moisture. Eazicare hair serum gives a decent amount of moisture to the hair and protects them from heat damage and breakage.
- Avoid more use of blow dryers and straighteners. Hair that is naturally curly is more prone to frizz and dryness. Thus excessive use of these tools can damage hair badly. If it’s very important to heat style your hair then use a serum or heat-protecting sprays before styling.
