Curls are beautiful if you know how to treat ‘em right. Here’s how to control frizzy curls.
There’s a simple way to make the most of those curls without them getting frizzy. We consulted with a teenaged curly girl and she gave us the rundown on what works after lots of different experimentation.
The first product you need is Herbal essences TOUSLE Me SOFTLY SPRAY GEL or (here for a better price). Immediately after washing hair, brush well and spray into wet hair. Avoid the crown of the head and don’t overdo it. One layer of spray is enough. Tilt your head and scrunch your hair in an upward motion for 40-60 seconds or until evenly distributed. Allow to dry. Avoid running or excess movement while drying so the outermost layer doesn’t frizz up.
When you don’t want to, or can’t, wash your hair, but your curls are either frizzy or limp, you can use
Deva Curl Mist-er Right Dream Curl Refresher (this is the replacement) (Seems like there are 2 replacements, another here. Y0u can read here to learn more) Spray all over your hair and tilt your head forward. Scrunch your hair upward. You can spray directly onto the scalp to rejuvenate all your hair.
This is a great start. Here are some more ideas (from a mom who was in a similar predicament):
There are salons that give Deva Curl haircuts, they will give your daughter an appropriate hair cut and teach her which products to use and how. Google deva curl salon to find one near you.
They will recommend the deva products which are a bit pricey, but I found they last a while and were worth the money.
Also, my daughters stylist recommended just doing keratin on the baby hairs, if you want to leave her hair curly, this was amazing in the summer.
Two more things.
Only brush curly hair in the shower with a wide tooth comb. Do not brush otherwise. Also, cut up and old t shirt to use to pat her hair dry as opposed to regular towel drying.
So interesting and helpful. Ty
I agree with not brushing after the shower. Even running your fingers through your hair can add frizz, because you are separating the curls.
Another product I’ve found that works well for many girls with curly hair is Argan Oil of Morocco Conditioner. OGX Renewing + Argan Oil of Morocco Conditioner, 25.4 Ounce Salon Size https://a.co/d/hqYZPdS
You put it in after the shower and just evenly pat it in.
Another tip for curly hair is not shampooing it often. This drys out the hair even more. Just condition it.
