Never brush curly hair. Seriously, if you even own a brush, get rid of it at once! Only comb your hair with a wide tooth comb before your shower, or gently finger comb after the shower. Remember that wet hair is more prone to breakage, so be super patient and gentle if you’re combing it wet.
Avoid hairsprays and mousse. Not only can it make your curls crunchy (a big no-no!), the product like malaysian braiding curly hair weft is also ones that contain the highest amount of alcohol.
Go easy on the heat. Excess heat can cause your curls lose their natural spiral-like shape, making them look lifeless. If you notice this, avoid using any kind of heat (including the blow drier with the diffuser!) for a week or two, and focus on rehydrating your curls to give them that bounce back. If you do use hot styling tools, use them on moderate heat setting and always use heat protectant.
Get a curl-expert hairstylist. Oh yes, this is a big one,loves. Getting a haircut by a professional hairstylist with previous experience in working with curly hair, who truly understands the science and all the perks that come with having curly hair, can make all the difference. An amazing haircut which looks great with your naturally curly hair is more likely to make you want to put that straightener away and rock your curls!
