Hair is mainly composed of keratin, a protein, which grows from a sac called
the follicle. Hair is curly or straight, depending upon the number of disulfide
bonds between hair proteins present in the hair shaft. If your hair is
naturally curly, relying on the curl pattern you may opt to go with curls from
the hairline down to the ends.
To style curly hair straight takes a little more attempt.
First shampoo your hair and relocate tangles. Shampoo with moisturizing shampoo
casted for your hair’s current type, condition and texture. If you prefer, wash
with conditioner only or a diluted formula that works perfect for you. A good
routine to care for your curly braids would be to shampoo your
hair every other day.
Always use a light weight leave-in conditioning detangler and a broad
toothed comb on wet hair to deal with stubborn tangles. Apply a paddle brush
and a blow dryer with a concentrator. Straight blow dryer down the hair shaft
from roots to ends to get hair direct with the added bonus of extra shine. Use
a curling iron to clarify the curls if you wish. Finish with a bang of shine
spray and hairspray to block humidity and add shine.
A good cut is very important to manage curly hair. Avoid
the use of thinning shears or razor cutting. Thinning shears crush the ends of
your hair and razors slice the edges giving split ends a place to begin. If
your hair is too thick ask your stylist to layer it to remove bulk and
Longer layers normally work best on curly hair with a larger
less defined curl and can be very flattering when dried naturally or blown dry.
Attach a long finger diffuser to your blow dryer. Keeping fingers and hands out
of hair as much as possible (to protect curl) separate remaining strands into
personal 2? sections. Using the blow dryer on a medium, low to medium heat
setting, use the fingers to lift and adorn natural curls. Separate long
sweeping bangs from rest of hair.
Apply a small glop of straightening gel to the bang and top of the hair line
area. Don’t use brush and if possible let it dry naturally. Try to bunch the
hair in handfuls and keep the heat flowing between your fingers through your
hair. After it’s dry let it stay and cool for a minute, then flip it up.
