Hello, GLAMOUR readers, I’m back with my second column and very excited to talk about my curly hair, as well as share some amazing tips that keep my curls looking beautiful and healthy.
I’ve struggled with my curls in the past, not knowing how to treat them or what products I should or shouldn’t use. I’ve also spent years battling my curls, turning to my trusty straighteners so I don’t have to deal with all the frizz.
However, 4 years ago, I realised how lucky I truly am to have curly hair so I finally decided to embrace my curls in all their glory. Since then, I’ve devised some pretty handy hacks for keeping my curls in check and while it’s a lot of work, it’s so worth it. Here are the tips that have totally changed my curly hair game.
1. Deep conditioning
Deep conditioning is very important when you have curly hair; it builds the strength and integrity of the curls and gives the curls a good dose of hydration. This is important for everyone who has curls since curly hair in naturally dry and needs all the hydration it can get to get the bounce it needs.
2. Keep on top of regular trims
Trimmed hair is very important. Split ends never curl as beautifully as healthy, trimmed hair does. This is why it’s very important to have trimmed hair every now and then to get the most beautifully curled look.
3. Use a T-shirt when drying the hair
Did you know a regular towel can cause a lot of frizz in your curls? I swear by using an old cotton T-shirt to dry my hair when I get out of the shower. The fibres of the T-shirt are much softer and gentler than a towel.
