Curly Hair Needs A Great Hair Cut

Covent Garden West End Hair Salon BestIs your hair flat on top and curly at the sides?  Karine Jackson recommends:

  • getting your hair cut by someone who truly understands how curly hair ‘works’
  • changing your parting as your hair dries.  This will add volume at the roots.  You can change back to your usual parting once your hair is dry.
  • trying a zigzag parting as this will also give you volume at the roots.

Apply Hair Conditioner for Curly Hair

Apply hair conditioner designed for curly hair when washing your hair and gently work through each strand using a wide tooth comb.  Scrunch your hair from the ends of the hair upwards towards the scalp to encourage the curl.  Be very gentle with your hair as it can break when wet.

Towel Dry Or Air Dry Curly Hair

Gently towel dry or air dry curly hair.  Do not rub the hair – squeeze it to keep the shape of the curl and scrunch it into the position you want it to look when dry.  Try to use a cotton or micro fibre towel to minimize frizz.

Your diffuser should be set on warm and at a low speed to reduce frizz.  Start on the roots and when they are dry, work on the mid lengths using an upward motion.  The roots and mid lengths must be completely dry before you move onto drying the ends of your hair.

Use A Curling Wand To Create More Curls

If you have some strands of hair that are wavy, others are curly and some are straight, invest in a good curling wand or tong and add some curls to even out your look.

Avoid Knots In Curly Hair

Silk pillow covers are a great investment if you tend to wake up with curly hair that looks a mess and is tangled and knotty.  The silk reduces friction on your hair so it will look much smoother when you wake up.  You can also try clipping your hair up while you sleep.
