Curly Hair? 5 Tips to Solve the tame down without losing the volume

Curly Hair Picture

With curly hair, you have the best of both worlds – you can straighten it or leave it curly.  So, how do you tame it without flattening it?

  1. If you shampoo your hair every day, you are drying out your hair.  That tends to add frizz.  Have a plan. Wash your hair every other day (or even once or twice per week) and condition the other times you wet it.
  2. StyleSixty, Frizzy Hair remedies, 9/24/12Don’t just put conditioner on your hair, comb it through. And, your mother was wrong – don’t start at the top of your head. Ouch! Start at the bottom and work your way up! Leave conditioner in for required amount of time and then rinse out with cool water.
  3. Use but diffuse. If you’re going to use a hair dryer, use a diffuser. This will help you keep your style without adding frizz to it.  But first apply a gel or mousse for use with heat-styled hair.
  4. Hair products can either flatten your hair or add volume. Decide which of these works better for your hair – mousse or gel. Try using a leave-in conditioner to reduce the damage to your hair; pick one for either dry hair or damp toweled-dry hair.

Love Your Long Hair

I have been in this business for 40 years now. I have done just about every type of hair that there is. I like to do all types straight, curly, short and long. Of course short hair is easy as far as keeping it in good condition. People with short hair tend to have more regular haircuts. Unfortunately, long-haired girls have a hard time finding someone who will make their hair look beautiful without cutting too much off. As professionals, we need you to do your part so we don’t feel the need to cut too much off.

1. Long hair needs regular trims just as short hair does. Here are some other tips for keeping your long hair in great shape.

2. Wash hair sparingly with a good quality shampoo. Many people insist that washing here too often can leave here dried out, at least in its natural oils, and damage your hair. Shoot to shampoo your hair no more than every other day. Some people wash their hair only twice a week. Ask your trusted professional to recommend a good shampoo for your hair type.

Lather hair generously at the scalp only. The shampoo that washes through the length and ends of your hair should be enough to clean them.

3. Use conditioner/moisturizer every time you shampoo. Use a deep conditioner once a week. Start by applying your conditioner from the ends to the lengths. It is generally not necessary to run the conditioner all the way to the scalp.

* De-tangle hair with a good paddle brush starting from the very ends and working your way up. Never use plastic or wire bristles for this.

* Do not sleep with wet or damp here this will weaken the follicles and make hair strands brittle.

* When towel drying, don’t rub the hair vigorously. This splits the hair. Squeeze and blot the hair as much as possible.

4. Never tie your hair back while it’s wet. Trying to tie your hair when it is semi-damp can cause hair to become brittle. Always make sure to dry the strands before tying your wet hair to stay away from severe hair problems.

*Hair damage When hair is wet. There are chances of shedding more hair. Never try to rigorously brush or tie your wet hair since this weakens and breaks the hair strands. These stern actions can lead to acute hair damage. Healthy hair can only be achieved through a lot of persistence so use a soft towel to drain out water from your hair before tying them.

* Never tie your wet hair into a ponytail as it is fragile and therefore cause hair loss. Using hair elastic to tie dripping hair is definitely asking for more root damage and hair breakage. Make sure to dry your tresses before tying your hair.
