|Dealing with curly hair can often feel like a double-edged sword. On one hand, who wouldn’t want to dazzle the world with some gorgeous curls? However, as anyone with curly hair knows, the struggle of caring for it properly can be exhausting.|
The Earth Collective brings you some key tips for curly hair that you should incorporate into your hair care regimen!
Understanding Curly Hair
The shape of your hair follicles and the natural tendencies & shape of your hair determines how curly your hair is. Curly hair comes with its own set of benefits & struggles, and it’s important to understand the nature of your hair in detail so you can care for it well. Curly hair is more prone to dryness and damage than straight hair. Due to this, it is important that your hair care regimen includes steps that increase & retain moisture and keep your hair well-hydrated. We bring you some essential hair care tips for those gorgeous curls.
Curly Hair Care Tips
Keep your hair moisturised & hydrated
The key thing to remember about curly hair is to adopt a lot of the best remedies, practices and products designed for dry & frizzy hair. You therefore need to ensure that you keep your hair moisturised & hydrated throughout the day. The best place to start is with The Earth Collective’s curated range of products, specially formulated for Dry & Frizzy Hair!
Avoid products with harmful chemicals
Especially when dealing with curly hair, you should avoid using hair care products with harsh chemicals that strip your hair & scalp of moisture. This means no harsh shampoos, or any of the other hair care products with mineral oils, parabens & sulphates which also clog up your hair follicles with product buildup.
Avoid washing your hair frequently
This is an important tip to keep in mind, as washing your hair frequently tends to dry it out. With curly hair being already prone to dryness, this will lead to dry, frizzy & damaged hair. It is also important to switch to mild cleansers from shampoos & to pay attention to the ‘hardness’ of the water you use to wash your hair.
Detangle & comb your hair correctly
This is a neat little trick that can lead to a big impact on your hair. Wet hair is more prone to breakage. Therefore, you should detangle your hair before showering. After showering and drying your hair, you can comb it with a wide-toothed comb to ensure the least amount of damage & breakage to your hair possible.
Protect your hair from the elements
Especially with curly hair, it’s important to ensure that your hair isn’t directly exposed to harsh elements. A harsh sun can quickly remove the moisture from your scalp & hair, leading to dry and damaged hair. Strong winds, on the other hand, can make your hair even more frizzy & prone to getting tangled. It’s best to cover your hair with a scarf or hat when stepping outside.
