Curly Hair Advice
Taming of the 'Do'
Follow these tips to keep your curls in top shape:
Dry, coarsely-textured hair: Try a deep conditioning product to give hair needed moisture and shine. Avoid strong-hold gels and mousses. Instead use soft-hold gels for soft, shiny, touchable curls.
Soft, fine hair: Light conditioners work best and don't weigh hair down. Avoid pomades, unless you're trying to eliminate the curls. Use medium- to light-hold gels to define curls.
All hair types: Always use a wide tooth comb to evenly distribute product through the hair, then put into desired shape with fingers. Allow kinky-curly or naturally wavy hair to dry naturally after applying a cream or gel.
When blowdrying, use a diffuser attachment to keep curls in place. Don't scrunch hair or fluff while drying (this creates frizz!); rather, let hair dry in place as much as possible, then separate lightly with fingers.
