First step: wash curly hair in the right way
By nature a beautiful curl is more delicate and destined to lose its shape and styling more easily than wavy and straight hair. To prevent it from becoming frizzy and heavy within a few hours after washing, losing its shape, follow the specific steps that begin with washing, flanked by special products designed for the hair’s specific needs.
Never neglect the importance of correct cleansing: the first mistake, and one of the worst, that those with curly hair can make is to comb it when dry before washing. Due to the fixative and definition styling products left on the hair stem by the previous drying, and aided by a greater predisposition to frizziness and the opening of the scales, when brushed when dry the hair will become weaker each time, breaking with the consequent risk of losing and ruining the curl during the subsequent styling.
Wash using gentle, moisturising shampoos with anti-frizz action, remembering to cleanse the scalp deep down, without rubbing it but simply massaging it with your fingertips; this will also reactivate the scalp and aid the microcirculation through a specific beneficial massage > Find out more about the 9 preferential application areas (P.A.A.) for reactivating the scalp
Now it’s time to comb your hair, though with extreme gentleness: use an hair mask that doesn’t weigh down the lengths detangle hair by removing any knots. Since curly hair is frizzier by nature, at least once a week take 5-10 extra minutes to use a moisturising and strengthening mask, applying it on the previously towel-dried hair lengths. > Try Curly hair Mask of Organic Way.
The best way to comb curly hair is still simply to use your fingers: the possibility of breaking the curl and causing it to lose its shape is greatly reduced compared to the use of comb and brush. However, if you are used to using the latter, it is always better to choose combs with wide teeth and/or wooden brushes. Wood in particular reduces the possibility of obtaining a frizzy result and, furthermore, it is much gentler on the lengths and scalp.
Tip! For the final rinse try to use a jet of cold water directly on the lengths to obtain shinier hair!
