Tips for Take Care of Your Long Curly Hair
Those who have curly hair understand taking care of their locks is quite different than what's required for straight hair. Curly hair can range from big curls to small tight curls; therefore, understanding how to properly care for the hair is essential. Most curly hair is prone to frizz, single-strand knots and dryness. Avoiding harsh chemicals and damaging hair accessories can lessen the damage to your natural curls. By utilizing the necessary precautions, your hair can grow healthy and long fast.
1. Do not use shampoo often. Shampoo may strip curly hair of its moisture, which can cause it to become dry and fragile. Washing the hair with shampoo once a week and doing a "co-wash" daily may prevent the hair from drying out, as recommended by Naturally Curly. For a co-wash, wash the hair with a moisturizing conditioner; rather than shampoo.
2. Apply a leave-in conditioner to your hair daily. Curly hair can become extremely dry; using a leave-in conditioner daily can help combat dryness. Another option is to use a deep-conditioning treatment on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
3. Avoid hair breakage. Dry, curly hair should never be brushed. Detangle your curls with a wide-toothed comb while the hair is still wet and has conditioner in it. Part your hair in sections and began at the ends of the hair shaft, working your way up towards the root, for the detangling process. Allow your hair to air-dry as often as possible. Avoid hair accessories that will pull or tangle your hair.
4. Massage your scalp daily. Massaging the scalp daily for at least five minutes will promote blood flow in the area. The benefit of improved blood flow to the scalp will increase the nutrients needed for healthy hair growth.
