Women with curly hair look really pretty but they also need curly hair tips. Curly hair also gets its fair share of attention! Curly hair gets under-moisturized due to the shape of the strands whereas curly hair scalp can get really greasy. Confusing!! Right? A woman with naturally wavy hair needs to take greater care of the hair because even slight changes in humidity or the weather can lead to hair problems like frizzy hair or split ends.
How to take care of curly hair?
The quality of your hair depends on how you take care of it, so here are some tips for you and your beautiful curly hair!
Try to wash your hair with a sulphate free shampoo
Usually, curly hair is drier than straight hair and many women have found that using a sulfate-free shampoo is quite helpful.
You can try the Pilgrim Sulfate-Free Shampoo that contains the three primary ingredients – Argan Oil, White Lotus, and Camellia. It will help strengthen your hair, soothe your scalp, and repair damaged strands.
Begin at the bottom
When you wash your hair and apply a hair mask, start by applying at the bottom of your hair first. Slowly work your way towards the top. The same rule applies when you brush or comb your hair. Start at the bottom to easily detangle your hair.
Don’t use a towel to dry curly hair
If you want to avoid your hair from getting frizzy, then never rub your hair with a towel, that too vigorously. Rather, you should pat dry it with a towel gently. You can also use an old T-shirt instead of a towel to avoid the risk of frizziness.
Use less styling products
When you have curly hair, it is advisable that you go easy on using styling products. If you have to use them, then be careful and make sure that you apply them evenly and use the least possible quantity or else you might end up with a blob of the product on just a part of your hair and nothing on the other parts!
Use a wide-toothed comb
Brushing curly hair causes the curls to separate and make the hair frizzy. So instead, use a wide-toothed comb and start working up from the bottom to gently detangle your hair.
Cold water hair wash makes your hair shinier – a myth
Many of you might have heard that those with curly hair should wash their hair with cold water to reduce frizziness and add shine to their hair. Well, washing your hair in cold water will only make your head cold! This is just a myth. Luke warm water works well. Also, avoid washing your hair on rainy days.
Layer your hair
When you go for a haircut, ask your hairstylist to layer them. This is because without layers, your curly hair will look just flat or it will flare out.
Use sea salt spray – a myth
Another common myth about curly hair is that by using sea salt spray, your hair would be more textured and your curls would get a better definition. Well, this is a complete lie. Salt isn’t good for any hair type, let alone curly hair because it makes hair dry and if you’ve been swimming in the ocean, you would know for certain.
Keep your hair moisturized
For taking care of your curls, the key is moisturizing your hair regularly. As they’re curly, your hair needs more moisture. Here’s when the hair mask comes to play! When washing your hair, use a good quality hair mask and apply to every single strand. Leave it on for five to ten minutes before rinsing it out. Doing this regularly will help you avoid getting frizzy hair and your hair won’t be easily affected by changes in humidity as well.
Dry your hair naturally
No one has so much time to spare, but for your hair, this is one good thing to do if you can make a habit. Usually, we dry our hair after washing them, using a blow dryer, but the heat damages your hair and brings back all the frizziness and dryness. So to avoid these problems, it is best to let your hair dry naturally in the air. If you do not have so much time to spare, set your blow dryer to the lowest heat setting to avoid damage.
Use a hair mask, once in a week
For keeping your curly hair in perfect condition, use a hair mask once every week. Masks that contain Argan Oil are best for curly hair, as they help prevent hair damage and keep them moisturized. Use Pilgrim Argan Oil hair mask for the best results. It can help to make your hair shiny and bouncier. With Argan Oil, White Lotus, and Camellia, you will be able to protect your hair from UV damage and environmental pollutants.
Stick to one brand
Curly hair calls for more hair products than straight hair, so if you choose one brand, then it is advisable that you stick to the same brand for all products as these would work best together.
Use frizz control serum
You need to be best friends with frizz control serum or cream if you have curly hair. We recommend the Pilgrim Argan Oil Hair Serum that also contains White Lotus and Camellia. You can use it to fix your frizzy and dull hair. Using this will give your hair extra gloss and conditioning. Just take a little bit of the product, to avoid humidity and frizz.
Trim your hair regularly
To keep your hair looking healthy and volumized, trim your hair regularly. Cut them every six to eight weeks, and get them trimmed when dry, as curly hair can shrink up to 30% when it dries out.
Maintain a healthy diet
The quality of your hair is also affected by what you eat every day. Therefore a diet that includes fruits, vegetables, and a lot of lean proteins will keep your hair in a good condition. Along with a healthy diet, also drink plenty of water to keep your body and hair hydrated.
Thus, follow these few tips for curly hair and your hair will thank you in the future!
