10 Curly Girl Hair Care Tips to Healthy, Frizzless Curls




If you have curly hair, you know that your hair is different everyday. Some days, our curls come out perfect and other days, our curls look more like a lion's mane than actual curls. What helps achieve the ugly mane is frizz. Curly hair is extremely prone for frizz and frizz is a curly girl's worst nightmare and is pretty frustrating.  But, there are tips to help reduce that unwanted frizz. This is my list of some useful tips for curly hair to avoiding frizz.

1. Trim those Ends, Girl!

It is really easy for girls with curly hair to neglect their ends. Bu it is imperative to trim your dead-ends every 3-4 months. Trimming your dead ends helps with the growth of your hair and also the volume of your hair. Keeping your dead ends weighs down your hair, reducing the volume of your hair. Split ends are the key to frizzy hair. Cut those ends regularly and you'll help with reducing your  frizz. 

2. Rarely Shampoo & Use Tons of Conditioner

Curly, kinky and even wavy hair needs the natural oils from our scalps to avoid frizz. Shampoo'ing your hair strips your scalp of all of it's natural oils, which leaves our hair frizzy and also dry. It is best to shampoo your hair only 3-4 times a week. Regular conditioning, however, is extremely important. The more we condition our hairs, the healthier and more moisturized our hair is. Never, ever, skip conditioning. Curls succumb to dryness very easily so that conditioner is very much needed. 

3. Don't Neglect Those Deep Conditioners

Curly hair is the most healthy and moisturized when we deep condition regularly. I like to deep condition my hair twice a month. Deep conditioning gives our hair that extra boost, whenever we need it. It helps with reducing frizz and giving us the best curls we can get. 

4. Rinse With Cold Water

When rinsing out your hair, avoid rinsing with hot water because it dries out our hair and helps the frizz. Cold water seals our hair cuticles, smooths the hair cuticles, helps with hair shine and flyaway frizz. 

5. NO Brushing!

Before you freak out, I don't mean to not detangle your hair. But, curly hair should only be detangled using a wide-toothed comb or your fingers. Now, I'm not a fan of using my fingers because it takes quite a while, but all power to those who can! A wide-toothed comb is the best tool to detangle curly hair because it doesn't rip our your hair or help create split-ends like other brushes do. Also, when styling your hair, don't try to brush or even comb your hair. Leave any detangling of your hair to while your hair is wet or damp. 

6. Keep Those Curls Curly 

I know, I know. You've probably already heard this one already and tried to ignore it but you just can't. Stay away from the blow-dryer or hair straighteners! Anything with heat will fry your hair and shouldn't be used with curls. Curly hair is not resistant to heat like wavy or straight hair and is really, really vulnerable to becoming dry, frizzy and dead. I always get compliments on my curls from my fellow curly girls who straighten their hair. Stay..away. 

7. Sleep on Satin 

This is a minor tip but it has really helped my hair from the frizz and is just a couple dollars. Buying a Satin pillowcase and using that to lay your head on while you sleep is one of the best investments you can get for your hair. Cotton pillowcases create frizz while you sleep. You can find cheap ones on Amazon. 

8. Styling While Wet 

Styling your hair is easiest and best if you do it while your hair is at least damp. Trying to style your hair while it's dry won't leave you with the best look, trust me. 


9. Use a Micro Fiber Towel 

A Micro fiber towel is the best towel for avoiding frizz. When you dry your hair, stay away from the regular towels because it creates friction and then frizz with your hair. You can also opt for using a cotton t-shirt if you don't want to buy the towel.

10.  Use a Diffuser 

I've had plenty of times where I took a shower, washed my hair and needed to run out into the cold. No one wants to go out with wet hair and risk getting sick right? Use a diffuser on your blow dryer to avoid getting frizz from drying your hair. Make sure your blow dryer is on high and cold & the diffuser will work wonders. The  diffuser minimizes frizz while evenly distributing the heat throughout your hair.

  4. Great tips! I have to shampoo quite regularly as although my ends are dry my roots get oily and flaky but I always avoid the lengths and of course ends. I completely agree with cold water too :) my issue is that even with a diffuser and a good defining cream, my curls look kind of rubbish if I use a hairdryer so I only really let them out in the summer when I can wet-style and go. Very annoying! xx

    1. Hey Jasmine, I know what you mean about your roots getting oily. In fact, your roots get oily because your scalp is overproducing your oils because when you shampoo, it gets rid of them. This blew my mind when I found this out, haha. Curly hair can definitely get annoying!

  7. If you really wish to lengthen your mob quickly, consider using hair extensions. They are affordable, easy to use, and there is no risk of damaging your strands. But if you have a little time of your hands, there are things that you can do to speed up your hair growth.
