Keep your curls hydrated all-day long by following these 5 best tips on How to Keep Your Curly Hair Hydrated.
5 Ways to Moisturize Your Curls:
1. Avoid Overprocessing
Who does not love experimenting with hair color? Color can give you a new look or just add dimension to curls. But, the potential for damage, however, can happen when the hair is lifted several levels above its natural hue. But this does not mean damage cannot be prevented.
For the fix, Color your hair with care. Curly hair is naturally porous, therefore, this can affect how your hair absorbs and maintains color. Stick to products that work double-time in preserving color and nourishing chemically-treated hair.
2. Condition Your Hair Often and After Cleansing
Always condition after you cleanse your hair, which should be only a couple of times per week. The other days, you can just wet your hair and use your fingers to comb a generous amounts of conditioner through it.
Even if you do not want to get in the shower and drench your tresses, you can just wet your curls lightly with water from the sink. Then put some of conditioner in your palms, add a little water, then rub your hands together and gently apply this to your hair, most especially to the top, which tends to get the frizziest.
3. Don’t Rinse the Benefits Away
This was one of the best trick you will learn. Do not rinse all your conditioner out of your hair.
How much conditioner you leave behind effects how much frizz shows up later. What you can do instead, is to stand away from the stream of the shower, then fill your cup hands with water, then splash this over your head. That’s it.
Your hair can never have too much thirst-quenching conditioner.
4. Use the Right Product
This can take some trial and error, but using the right conditioner means you can leave a lot of it in your hair, and this will not feel greasy or crunchy.
Look for products with ingredients that hydrate hair including vegetable oils, shea butter, cetyl esters, jojoba oil, cetyl esters, olive oil and wheat germ. Also, you can look for conditioners that contain humectants, which are ingredients that soak in moisture from the atmosphere, including vegetable glycerin, panthenol, and sorbitol.
5. Deep Condition Regularly
At least 1-2 times a week, you should deep condition your hair using a rich, thick product, then leave it on for at least 15 minutes. Much better, you can heat it up using a blow dryer or wrap a warm, damp towel around your hair.
If you take the time to incorporate these tips to your routine, your curls will be bouncing with joy.
