Hair is the most versatile part to create your look and personality. Like I always say it is a wonderful permanent accessory for every woman. Curly hair is amazing to look at. But anyone with curly hair would know how difficult it is to maintain.
Dr. Blossom Kochhar, Chairperson Blossom Kochhar Group of Companies told HerZindagi that "curls can be unpredictable, unruly and difficult to control. The texture of curl hair is different from normal hair. It requires more hydration and nourishment."
Curly hair needs different care so here are some tips by her that will help you keep your curls look great.
Comb With A Wide-Tooth Comb
A wide-tooth comb helps detangle your curls while maintaining the pattern. It boosts blood circulation and thereby control hair breakage. Remember to comb the lower part of your hair first in a bottom-up order to reduce breakage.
Spray hair with a little water from a spray bottle. This helps maintain moisture in the hair and control frizz in the hair.
After that take a little mousse and scrunch your hair: It is extremely important that we apply any styling products to damp hair. This creates volume and gives a bounce to the hair.
Use products meant for curly hair. Choose products wisely that is meant to tame your curls and not spoil them. There is no harm in investing some money as your hair is your crown.
In addition to these steps, it is vital you keep a note of what you eat to improve hair strength, shine and overall health.
Air Dry & Serum
Don't comb or blow dry immediately after wash: This will break the pattern of your curl and make the hair frizzy. Apply some serum to maintain the texture and control frizz.
Make sure you eat healthily and include omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin B12, iron and zinc which boost your hair health. You may use a deep conditioner or a suitable hair mask to nourish your curls and also help prevent frizz in the hair.
Towel Drying Method
Towel drying your hair may also create frizz. You can use a T-shirt to dry your hair after shower to gently absorb water from your curly hair.
It is also important to trim your split ends timely to reduce unhealthy hair. This also helps your hair to look healthy.
