TIPS FOR CURLY HAIR

Curly hair is different from other hair types and requires different care.   Below are a few recommendations if you have beautiful curly locks!  Our Atlanta salon offers hair care products specifically formulated for curly hair types, and we will be happy to recommend the best cleansing and styling products for your own individual needs when you visit us.

 

  • When you shampoo your hair, avoid circular or vigorous motions that can tangle the hair
  • Always use conditioner.  Conditioner is a must for wavy or curly hair types, and the curlier and thicker your hair is, the more moisture it needs, and the more product it will absorb.   If you have very fine or thin curly hair, apply conditioner to the lower half of your hair and avoid putting conditioner on your scalp.  If you hair is very curly, coarse, or very thick, use conditioner liberally and apply all over.
  • Curly hair can tangle easily.   After shampooing, use your fingers to detangle your hair while it is still wet.  Only use a wide tooth comb when necessary.   Start at the ends and gently comb through the hair, working your way upwards from the ends to your scalp. 
  • When drying your hair, avoid twisting it and wrapping it tightly in a towel.  Use a jersey or t-shirt type material to towel dry your hair.   For best results, leave the blow dryer, and allow your hair to air dry naturally.   Small amounts of product can be used while scrunching or twisting hair sections to define curls or create ringlets.  Add more product as needed to created your desired look.  If your hair is very dry, you can also apply a leave in conditioner.
