ADFADGSFDGKSFG I hate this, because almost no one knows it. No one tells kids with curly hair how to actually take care of their hair. You cant treat curly hair like straight hair and expect the same results! You cant! It doesnt work! Curly hair gets its own routine! Okay, look, heres the deal. Your curls are… curls. They are MEANT to go together into a GROUP. They are not like straight hair which just hands out in one big… thing. Curls have groups. By BRUSHING it, you are splitting those good-curl groups into separate strands, which, on their own, are STILL trying their goddamned best to curl, but now that they are away from their friends, they are only clinging haphazardly to each other as best as they can and creating tangles! Heres what brushed curly hair looks like: Heres what well-treated curly hair that has CURL-FRIENDS is supposed to look like (curl size may vary): See how the curl is NOT only one strand of hair? Its a whole group! You know how you get those nice curls? Okay, heres the deal – you sit down. You look at this chart. Figure out your type of curl. (guesstimate) And now you go to this website and you read about what curly hair actually needs to thrive, and you change your routine, and you promise me that you will NEVER disappoint your curls like that again!!!! 1) Curly hair is damaged by heat, lack of moisture, and sulfates in shampoo. – No blowdrying – use a cotton towel or t-shirt to scrunch your hair and get extra moisture out, and allow to air-dry – Turn down the shower temp while washing hair. I mean it. – Try to find a better shampoo. 2) Curly hair NEEDS moisture, and it NEEDS leave-in conditioner. – Use lots of conditioner. – Use leave-in conditioner – Try to use water spray over chemical setting sprays. 3) Curly hair does not need to be brushed, only combed with a wide-tooth comb. – Comb the hair through with your fingers while in the shower and detangle while you have conditioner in. – Comb again with a wide-toothed comb after the shower if needed – If you need to, use a twist of some sort to keep hair out of the way, but dont squeeze it too much – give it room to breathe! More tips from smarter people probably exist but thats the basic stuff. PLEASE be nice to your curly hair.
