How to Keep your Curls Under Control
I have naturally curly hair and I would say my hair is probably a medium thickness, it looks thicker because it is curly, and it is not too dry or too oily and it only needs washed around every third day. Here are some of my favourite products for my curly hair.
The first product that I would like to mention is coconut oil. I use coconut oil to nourish and moisturise my hair before I wash it. Coconut oil is very beneficial for the hair and does things such as stimulate hair growth, fight dandruff, prevent hair breakage and eliminate frizz. I use coconut oil in my hair around every one to two weeks, so not every time I wash it. You really do not need to use very much otherwise it could be a bit tricky to wash out. I like to leave coconut oil on for a minimum of thirty minutes or sometimes I leave it overnight because the longer you leave it in, the better. It does not leave your hair greasy once you wash it out which is fantastic but it will leave it hydrated and soft. If you have oiler hair then you might want to avoid applying it to the roots of your hair and just put a small amount in the ends. Coconut oil is a natural and affordable hair product that actually works.
The next product that I like to use on my hair is the John Frieda Sheer Blonde Colour Renew Purple Shampoo. This shampoo is amazing for anyone who gets blonde highlights or dyes their hair blonde because it gets rid of any brassy or yellow tones in the hair and makes the colour look so much nicer. It is not too expensive which is great because sometimes purple shampoo can be a bit pricey. You just apply it like a regular shampoo except I like to leave it in for a couple of minutes to give it time to actually work. I would recommend using this shampoo about every third time you wash your hair because you do not want to use it every time you wash your hair.
My favourite conditioner at the moment is the Bedhead Urban Antidotes Re-Energize Conditioner. This conditioner is great to use every time you wash your hair due to the fact that it moisturises, hydrates and nourishes the hair without weighing it down. I am aware of the fact that it is quite an expensive conditioner however it does come in a massive bottle so it should last you for a while and I managed to get mine in sale at TKmaxx so you might want to have a look there first. It is a really good conditioner and works really well for my hair.
Once my hair is all nice and clean I like to use the John Frieda Frizz Ease Nourishing Oil Elixer. I love this serum so much because it smooths frizz and makes your hair look and feel much healthier. I am not sure if the packaging for this serum is still the same because I have had it for a while because it lasts so long but you can get a very similar serum because I have got another John Frieda serum too. You only need a small amount of this serum and you can use it on wet or dry hair. It also contains argan oil which is very beneficial for the hair.
Another one of my favourite hair products has got to be the Aussie Miracle Hair Insurance Lightweight Conditioning Spray. This leave in conditioner hydrates and detangles my hair and it smells amazing which is a major bonus. I like to use this spray to make my curls look nicer and once again, to prevent frizz.
The final product that I am going to mention is the Tresemmé Salon Proffesional Curls Styling Wand. Although my hair is already naturally curly I do sometimes like to use a curling wand to make my curls look more defined and put together. I love how easy to use this wand is and how it still makes the curls look quite natural. I always make sure to apply a heat protectant spray before curling my hair so that it does not get damaged. This wand has three heat settings for different hair types and you can change them about depending on how you want your hair to look. It is also not too expensive compared to other curling wands which is always good.
So follow these steps to keep your curls under control.
