Whenever I was younger I spent a lot of time wearing my hair pulled back into either a bun or a ponytail because I hated my curly hair. Once I was in my twenties I spent a ridiculous amount of time every day straightening out my curls, and while I loved having straight hair each day all it would take is a little humidity or rain to make my curls come back full force.
So last year I finally gave in and decided that I couldn’t devote an hour or more each day on my hair, I decided it was time that I came to just accept my curly hair. It was certainly a lot of trial and error though because my first instinct was to treat my hair as I always had, I washed it daily, I used a ton of product, and I treated my hair terribly. Certainly keeping my curls looking nice and with minimal frizz couldn’t be that hard, so I took to Pinterest and found some really amazing tips that made me finally love my curls.
These are the tips that I found that made a huge difference in my hair:
- Limit shampooing. I shampoo my hair about every two days because the natural oils in my hair help keep my hair frizz free.
- Condition, and lots of it. Even though I don’t shampoo my hair daily, I do condition it while Im in the shower and before I try my hair I apply some leave in conditioner.
- Don’t touch it! Well obviously I can’t not touch my hair, but I limit how much I do so because it will cause my curls to be frizzy and uncurl. That means that I comb my hair with a wide tooth brush as soon as I get out of the shower and then apply a small amount of product, but I try to limit my contact with my hair.
- Heat sucks! I try to stay away from the blowdryer and curling iron because the heat from these two really kills my curls. I typically sit at my desk (under a ceiling fan on high) while my hair drys naturally.
Thanks to these simple steps I was able to learn to love my curls! Had I not found some tips though that would help my learn how to handle my hair I don’t know what I would have done.
