How do you manage curly, frizzy hair?

Having curly hair can be a nightmare if you don't know how to manage it. And everyone with naturally straight hair will always want curly hair. Because we always want what we dont have. Right?

These simple steps apply to anyone with naturally curly hair. First you need to understand what curly hair needs. Hydration. Just like our skin or body when we lack water we become dehydrated. Our skin goes dry and flakey and so does your hair. Curly hair is naturally dry so we need all the hydration and moisture we can give it. If you heat style or colour your hair these elements can add to the dryness and we need to add extra protection.

If you like to leave you hair naturally curly, at Harper Hair Subiaco we recommend starting off with a good salon quality hydrating shampoo, conditioner and a leave in treatment. Your leave in treatment is key to how your curls will dry. Its basically moisturizer for your hair. A few of our fav products for curly hair is Eleven Smooth Me Anti Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner. Or Wella Luxe oil or Fusion Shampoo and Conditioner. There are two types of leave in treatments. The first is an oil based one, either an argan oil, like Luxe oil by Wella or a cream based treatment which we love Eleven Hair Miracle Treatment. It all depends on the thickness and condition of your hair and what other products you are using. If you are still finding your curls need that little extra help there are beautiful curling creams that help define your curl and stop the frizz. We love Evo Liquid rollers and Eleven Keep my curl defining creme or Frizz control shaping creme. All work great with your leave in treatment.

Next thing is are you heat styling and colouring your hair? Is your hair split on the ends and extra dry? Then give your hair a break. If you colour your hair, opt for a semi permanent colours to give it shine and hydration rather than lightening your hair. If you heat style make sure you always use a heat protector spray. We love Hot tool Welder by Evo or Hair Miracle treatment by Eleven. 

Once you give your curly hair the love it deserves your hair will thank you for it and be bouncing all over the place!
