Taming curly hair can be done quickly with smoothing or anti-frizz styling products but for long term results you need a specific hair care regimen. Besides starting with the right haircut for your curly hair, one of the most important things you can do to tame your hair is to not over shampoo it, which can dry it out. Instead, try shampooing it once a week for best results or every few days if necessary. It is also important to keep in mind that you are using conditioner, be it on shampoo days or just on the days you wet your hair, always remember to use a product designed for curly hair and be sure to thoroughly comb the conditioner through your hair before rinsing it out. This will keep your curls looking fabulous and healthy.
Before applying your styling products, make sure your hair is damp and not wet. This will ensure the product is properly absorbed into your hair before you begin styling it. Another handy tip for taming tight curls is to put your hair in a braid or bun before you go to sleep. These simple techniques will help to maintain the bounciness of your curls.
