Some women may think that a head full of ringlets is too much to manage. But the truth is, given some extra care and attention, hair that is curly can make a woman look extremely sexy. With the right tools and skill, achieved through practice, even the wildest tousles can be tamed and managed. The pattern may be curly, loose, or kinky. According to texture, it may be coarse or fine. And according to type it may be Afro, Boticelli, corkscrew or wavy. Afro curls are very tight and appears to be almost wiry; Boticelli is S-shaped in appearance; corkscrew is small and tightly-wound; while wavy refers to loose waves of hair that do not really curl or coil. Whether you want to curl your straight hair or enhance your natural curls, the products and tools that you would need include a curl enhancing shampoo and conditioner, a diffuser for your blow-dryer to help tame curls, rollers to reform curls as they cool down after blow-drying, curling iron to fine-tune curls into perfect ringlets, and a frizz-fighting serum that also helps to add shine. However, if you already have a great cut that enhances your curls, a long finger diffuser will do; there’s no need to heat up those gorgeous tresses again with a curling iron.
Washing is important to curly hair. Frequency of washing, though, will depend on which part of the planet you live. If you live in a place where your hair is often exposed to sun, dust, and sweat, then you may have to wash your hair daily. Since curly hair is prone to dryness especially at the tips, using a shampoo and conditioner specially designed for curly hair is a must. You should also go for a regular deep moisturizing treatment once a month at the very least; if your curls are coarse, though, make once-a-week treatment a habit.Never raise a brush to your curly hair as this will straighten the ringlets and promote frizz. Use a wide-toothed comb, instead, but don’t comb often. Style when wet and use fingers to go through hair once it’s dry to preserve the curls. Let your hair air-dry; use the blow-dryer only when absolutely necessary as it zaps out the moisture from your hair fast. If you can’t avoid the blower, a weekly hot oil treatment would be your best bet to combat moisture loss and hair dryness.
