5 Tips to Care for Wavy &Curly Hair
This entry was posted on February 14, 2016.
Curly hair is naturally drier than other hair textures, so it requires extra moisture. We recommend using a moisturizing or hydrating conditioner after shampooing. And for even more moisture, you can treat yourself to a deep conditioning treatment at least once every two weeks. Some good products to care wavy/curly weaves: Keratin, Aragon, Moroccan, Olive.Check this video from Chrissy Bales about how to wash and condition your wig.
2. Lessen Heat Tools:
Heat will frizz and dry out curly hair. So, it’s best to avoid heat styling as much as possible. Instead, while the hair is still wet, gently scrunch up the curls from the bottom with your hand, and lay it on a dry towel to air dry completely.
3. Finger Comb Only:
Avoid brushing or combing your curly/wavy hair when it’s dry. Brushing or combing while the hair is dry may cause hair to be bushy, hair breakage, and tug on knots/tangles. Before washing is the only time you should brush the hair. Gently detangle before washing using a soft paddle brush or wide tooth comb on your hair.
4. Avoid Heavy Styling Products:
Products like oil, gel and mousse will weigh down a curly/wavy hair, and cause tangling and matting issues!
5. Use Natural Oil/Leave in Conditioner:
Natural oil or a leave in condition will help de-frizz and tame your hair. But be sure to only use a very small amount of oil (about a dime size) or a few pumps of leave in conditioner mixed with water in an 6 oz spray bottle because too much will weigh the hair down!
