We live in a society where we are taught to embrace Eurocentric ideologies that strip us from our natural culture. With that being said, stand up and be proud of your curls! Whether its tight, big, wavy or just all over the place, your curls should be your pride in glory. Curls do have the tendency to contain a lot of frizz due to the products we use on them. Here is an easy way to achieve frizz free curls without the build up of messy products!
First step: Shampoo and condition. If you have thick or frizzy hair, leave in a hint of conditioner to keep it from drying out. To detangle, rake your fingers through curly or frizzy hair; run a comb through straight hair. Squeeze out excess moisture but don’t towel-dry.
Now comes the crucial part for curly hair success. While hair is still sopping wet, coat it with a combo of styling and frizz-control products. Today’s curl-specific groomers are so lightweight that they give springiness without weighing curls down, explains New York City stylist Antonio Soddu. Which ones you should use depends on your hair’s texture. Remember, every product works different for each hair texture.
For naturally wavy or curly hair, choose a curl enhancer such as Frederic Fekkai Luscious Curls.
- For thick, curly hair, try Curl Friends High Humidity Gel.
- For fine, curly hair, use Matrix Curl life Contouring Milk. For frizzy hair, go for a straightening product or a cream like Kiehl’s Creme with Silk Groom. This can help tame the curl and make them more defined!
- For straight hair, a volumizing mousse or foam such as TRESemmé Curl Enhancing Mousse will do the trick. This type of mousse can and texture and thickness.
- In the palm of your hand, blend equal amounts of the curl enhancer with a frizz buster such as Pantene Pro-V Curl Shaper Anti-Frizz Crème. Finger-rake it through curly hair; use a comb with straight or frizzy hair. You do not have to coat every strand. The idea is to let these products find their own way through your tresses. Next, pat lightly with a towel to press out moisture so the cuticle of each hair shaft stays smooth. No turbans, please: You want your curls to blossom to its fullest potential!
