Tips for Maintaining Curly Hair

"There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.

And when she was good, 
She was very, very good,
But when she was bad, she was horrid!" 

-Mother Goose

 

Sometimes, curly hair can be perfect: bouncy, shiny, and maintainable. But other times, it can get frizzy and become incredibly difficult to manage. To figure out how to tame it, you first should determine if you have fine or coarse curly hair. Then, follow these tips to keep your locks healthy and strong:

  • Use protein treatments to strengthen fine strands. Products should include ingredients such as silk amino acids, collagen, keratin, wheat, and soy. 
  • Detangle hair in sections using your fingertips or a wide tooth comb. Try to comb your hair as little as possible by styling your hair with low-maintenance braids or twists.
  • Always air dry your hair.
  • Curly hair is the driest hair type. To keep hair moisturized, use leave-in conditioner targeting "dry and damaged hair." 
  • Your regular shampoo should be gently conditioning your hair with ingredients such as almond and shea butter to help protect your hair. 
  • Look for oils in the ingredients: olive oil and monoi oil.

It may seem like a simple task, but washing your hair regularly will keep your scalp free of dandruff, lice and other scalp diseases, and leaves your hair clean and oil free.

A typical day for me starts at 5 AM and ends at 1AM the next morning, so I don’t have the most free time to dedicate to the salon.

Of course looking my best is still important to me (haven't you been reading my tips?), so I make sure to use Kérastase’s Cristalliste Shampoo and Conditioner regularly to keep my locks shiny and voluminous.

The lightweight Cristalliste series is great for adding high volume and life to overworked hair, with an intense rush of hydration (much like our Renormalizing Serum does for your face) and, just like our products, is silicone free.

Isn’t it great when things work out?
