Curly Girl Guide
Keeping your curly hair looking great everyday does not have to be a chore. Below are a few tips to keeping curly hair manageable and easier to maintain daily.
Cover It Up
To keep the conditioner from getting all over you and let it warm up a bit, slip on a shower cap. (I take them from hotel rooms when I travel.) You can also wrap your hair in plastic wrap or a warm, damp towel. Keep this on for at least 15 minutes.
Use a T-Shirt
Drying your hair with a T-Shirt will greatly reduce frizz and breakage after washing. Since shirts aren’t as absorbent, gently squeeze your hair out before drying but never twist it.

Always apply product when hair is damp dried yet still mostly wet.
Say No To Brushes
Brushing can damage fragile curls. Opt for finger-combing or a wide-toothed comb instead. This makes it much easier to detangle and spread the product evenly. Plus you will use less product but get better results.
Refresh Your Curls
Use a moisturizing spray to keep your hair looking great in between using a conditioner. Try to use a spritz with natural ingredients.
Wear a Cap at Night
Use a satin sleep cap when you sleep to control the frizz and minimize the time it takes to style your hair in the morning.
Don’t Wash It Everyday
Wash your hair only once or twice a week to allow the natural oils to soak in and the curls will be more defined.
Use a Leave-In Conditioner
To maintain those curls use a leave-in conditioner that you can use daily. A leave in treatment is commonly applied after completing your hair washing routine. Your hair needs to be damp to provide all the benefits it can offer. Use a small amount focusing on the ends and other dry areas.
