When you see a girl flaunting her curls on the streets, you get instantly attracted and wonder why your hair does not look as beautiful. What you do not know is the amount of effort that goes in to make the hair look like it does. There is nothing like free lunch! So, if you want gorgeous luscious mane, you have to put in some effort. Here are a few tips that you can follow to improve the look and texture of your curly hair.
Oiling is an absolute necessity for women who have curly hair as it usually tends to be dry. Curls do not allow the natural oil to reach the tips and hence the tips look more dry and frizzy than the rest of the hair. Because the hair is dry, it tends to get weak and break. So, regular oiling is a must with either olive oil, coconut oil, almond oil or any natural hair oil.
Hair packs are a nice way to condition curly hair. There are many packs available in the market and make sure you choose the one that is made using natural ingredients. You can also make a pack at home using easily available ingredients like eggs, mayonnaise, yogurt, milk, lemon and honey.
Shampooing and Conditioning:
Shampooing frequently is not a great idea for curly haired people, as this strips the natural oil from the scalp. But make sure that every time you shampoo, you use a conditioner. Curly hair requires conditioning so as to appear shiny and beautiful. So, once you're done with shampooing, don't forget to apply a conditioner, which you can wash off after 2 minutes. Alternatively, you can also opt for a leave-in conditioner. Using a hair mask once a week is also a good option.
Always use a wide toothed comb to untangle your curls. This is the best option as it will easily flow through your curls. If you use a fine toothed comb, it will get stuck in your hair and cause weakening or breakage.
