This will help prevent\u00a0breakage and maintain the shape of your curls. This is the gentlest way to detangle curls because it doesn't disrupt the natural curl pattern as much as a brush would\n \tWhat kind of pillow case do you sleep on? All that tossing and turning at night can do some real damage to your curls. Try switching to a satin or silk pillowcase. This will protect your curls all night long.\n \tDo you dry your hair with a towel? Use an old t-shirt instead. This material is much softer and gentler on hair which will help reduce frizz and breakage. To do this, gently wrap up the ends of your hair in the shirt and squeeze out the excess water.\n \tWhen you comb your hair, which end do start from? Try combing from the ends upward, gradually move upward to the roots.\u00a0It's much easier to comb through knots at the ends first and you will avoid breakage.\n\n\nHow to Manage Curly Hair\n\n \tBefore you step into the shower, apply your favorite deep conditioner\u00a0to your hair\u00a0and put on a\u00a0shower cap. Wash your body before washing your hair as normal.\u00a0All the\u00a0steam from the shower will help your curls lock in moisture.\n \tBefore you step out of the shower apply a small amount of conditioner, and comb it through your hair.\u00a0This will help keep your curls from separating and reduce frizz.\n \tOn that same note, don't completely rinse out all the conditioner when washing your hair.\u00a0It's OK to leave a small amount of conditioner in your hair. Your curly ends\u00a0will thank you.\n \tMix leave-in conditioner\u00a0with gel or cream to moisturize your hair while sculpting the curls.\u00a0Scrunch and twist the product into damp hair and air-dry or style as normal.\n \tTry applying coconut oil all over your hair as a deep conditioner before showering. If you have very dry hair, rub coconut oil on the ends when styling for extra shine.\n \tDo you work out? Apply deep conditioner to your hair before hand. The heat from working out will help lock in moisture and your curls will be extra soft. Just rinse as normal after your you killed it at the gym.\n\n \n\n\n \tHate crunchy curls? Prevent them by applying a small amount of hair oil after using your styling products like mousse or gel. Just\u00a0rub a bit of oil onto the\u00a0areas that feel a bit stiff.\n \tDo you have split ends? They can make your hair frizzy and unhealthy. Make sure to get a trim at least every every six to eight weeks.\n \tMix two or more products together to meet your specific styling needs Try a smoothing serum plus mousse or mixing a styling gel and coconut oil.\u00a0Either of these combos will help leave your hair less crunchy and keep your hair smooth.\n \tNeed an extra bounce when your hair is dull or dry? Simply use your fingertips and apply a dime-size amount of styling gel or oil to your ends. Your bounce is now back!\n \tUse a diffuser.
