How to Properly Care for Curly Hair

Start by determining what your hair type is and what your curl pattern is. You can then shop for hair care products adapted to your needs. Try using smaller quantities of hair care products and invest in a good detangler that won’t damage your hair. You should also use a diffuser when blow drying your hair to avoid frizz and always start from the bottom when you comb your hair.

Learn to Shape Your Curls

Your curls will look even better if you shape them after washing your hair. The easiest way to shape your curls is to divide your hair into small segments. Wind the hair up to create flat circles and attach the circles to your head with some bobby pins. Keep your hair up overnight and you should have perfect curls the next day!

Adopt A Teased-Out Style

Take advantage of your hair’s natural volume by creating a teased-out style. Divide your hair into sections and use a comb to tease the underneath layers first. Keep in mind that this look will stay until you wash your hair again. This is a great way to add more volume if you feel that your curls make the top of your hair look flat. Try piling your curls to one side once you have mastered the teasing technique!

Think About a Cropped Hairstyle

Working with long curls can be difficult. A cropped hairstyle is going to frame your face and make your curls the stars of the show. A shorter hairstyle also means less maintenance, and you can easily pull off the perfect curly bedhead look. A curly pixie can be chic, but you can opt for a girly wavy bob if you would like a little more length.

Try Different Topknots

Topknots are a versatile way to style curly hair. You can easily pair them with hair accessories or even create a professional style. Start with a high ponytail and try different ways of attaching your hair on top. You can create a braid and wrap it, or simply create a messy bun.

Tame Your Curls with Braids

If you have naturally curly hair, you absolutely need to learn a few braiding techniques. You can create many different curly women hairstyles once you know how to properly braid your hair type, and this is a great way to tame your curls. You can braid only a section of your hair to reduce the volume and let some of your curls loose or choose to wear your curls in one large braid. If you have shorter hair, you can get the same effect with a twist.
