Not every girl has straight, long and luscious hair. Some women have natural curls, and they need embracing. Curly hair may not be the most popular, but it doesn’t have to be a hairstyle that women put up with. The truth is that curly hair can look just as beautiful as straight hair as long as you treat it with love and attention. How do you do that, you ask? Well, you can start by taking a nosey at the tips underneath. They should help your curly locks be the envy of the neighborhood.

Know Your Type To some women, all curls are the same. However, that isn’t true, and it is the biggest mistake you can make. There are dozens of different types, and you need to know which one applies to your hairstyle. Are they short and tight? Or maybe they’re longer and looser. Whatever the case, they need treating differently. It’s for this reason why understanding your curls is the first port of call to making them look the part. If you don’t get them, there is no way to maintain your hair properly. And, that affects the overall style. 

Avoid Shampoo Did you know that shampooing too often is bad for your hair anyway? Well, it is, but if you have curly locks, there is no need to shampoo whatsoever. You see, the trick is to condition every day as a bottle of conditioner is your best friend. The reason is simple: textured hairstyles are dryer. So, it is a lot harder for the oils from the scalp to penetrate the roots and keep your hair looking fresh. The good news is that co-washing revitalizes hair as it imbues it with the ingredients that it lacks. Of course, you need to shampoo every now and again, but using conditioner every day is the key.

Add Volume Thick hair is always the most beautiful, and there is no reason for your hair not to be thick. With the help of products like kinky curly hair, hair volume will never be an issue. Or, blow drying is another cool trick. The heat from the hairdryer gets into the roots and fluffs up your hair, making it thicker. If both of these don’t appeal, there is always dry shampoo. Regardless of the technique, it’s important to get the level of volume that you want. That way, your hair will pop whether it’s curly or straight.

Banish The Brush Brushes are a girl’s best friend, right? No, not if you have curly hair. Regular brushes have fine teeth that file through hair, and this isn’t good for your curls. The combs can even damage them, and that is the last thing you want before you hit the town. A wide-toothed brush is an option, but it is still a risk. Instead, get rid of the brushes altogether and go au naturel. By using your fingers, there is less chance of damage to the hair. Yes, it is a lot harder, but these are the things you need to add a wow factor.
