Careful With Wet Hair
When the hair is wet it’s more prone to damage. You must be careful about how you dry it and what you do with it while it's wet. Brushing wet hair is not recommended, and neither is tying it in a bun when it's wet. If you want to dry your hair at all, we suggest air drying or towel drying which are both better than blow-drying!
Rest Between Washes
Since handling wet curly hair is so tough, try to wait longer between washes. Your hair does not need to be washed every day. The more you wash your hair the more natural oils you remove, which could be damaging to the hair.
Stay AWAY From That Straightener
Heat is not good for curly hair; it’s not good for hair in general, but it dries out curls faster. Your hair will begin to break more, and the curl pattern may get distorted. As tempting as it may be to want a change sometimes, try to refrain from straightening your hair.
Moreover, we all know what you put in your body makes a difference to your outward appearance. There are certain foods that you can consume to allow your curls to flourish. Foods such as meat, beans, fish, and soy contain vitamins A. B, C, and E, leading to strong and lively strands.
You look beautiful just the way you are. Whether you have straight hair or curls, your hair suits you! Embrace your wavy locks, and learn how to nourish them in the right way. Let your inner self out, and be who you want to be. There are several different hairdo options for those lovely curls. Embrace your curls and your swirls; we hope this helped!
