Shampooing your hair every day can have a negative effect on controlling your curls. Embracing your naturally curly hair is a wonderful thing, however when you shampoo your hair every single day it can actually damage it. You want the natural oils from your scalp to get a chance to migrate all the way down your hair into your curls and tips! Shampooing will remove all these oils and cause your hair to dry out!!

 

Hair hack #3

Conditioner used as a styling product

Conditioner can also be left in your hair after a shower. Shampoo is typically meant to be rinsed out, but depending on your hair type leaving some in will work wonders! Give this a shot yourself, start with maybe 50% of the conditioner left in and let your hair dry before you judge how wet and moist it is. For some people just applying a small amount after showering is the trick. Surprise yourself, spread it evenly through your hair and reap the rewards.

Hair hack #4

Invest in a wide toothed comb

Not really a huge investment, but can easily be one of the best value hair hacks for controlling your curls & frizz. After you shower you need to comb out your natural curls to prevent tangling and knots. Start at the bottom of your tips and gradually move closer to your scalp. This will ensure a safe combing effect that leaves your hair free of knots and tangled ends while not ripping any out.

Diffusers work wonders for people who often find their hair frizzy and dry after showering. A Diffuser attaches to the end of a blow dryer and it does a great job at protecting your hair from direct, high heat. This allows you to dry your hair without damaging it, therefore heating it up too hot. Each one of these hair hacks will work wonders if you are a curly girl. Try them out!
