Curly Hair Problems/Tips

Tuesday, May 5, 2015

If you're a curly girl like me you can cry with me at this post, if you're not well then you'll probably laugh at our pain. I decided to write this post, because I thought it would be fun to see what I actually go through with my hair. The good thing about this, is that I am not alone when it comes to the love/hate relationship curly haired girls experience with their hair. Whether you have tight curls, loose curls, or wavy curls you go through at one or two things on my list.
 
Problems
-Frizz: This is one of the number one problems we face. Because of this I like to have a hat in my pocketbook, to safe myself the embarrassment. I feel like no matter what I do my hair stays frizzy. I could put on my shirt and all of a sudden half of my hair gets frizzy.
 
-Weather: Although the weather sometimes coincides with frizzy hair, it's in a category all by itself. If it's hot or humid outside my hair immediately knows. As soon as I step outside, in a matter of minutes I can feel my hair frizzing up.
 
-Tangle: Another know problem is tangled hair. It's so easy for it to get tangled and knotted up, but it's so hard to detangle it. I feel like it takes hours and hours to detangle and in the end you're left feeling exhausted and worn out.
 
-Can't comb/brush your hair: If you comb or brush your hair will most likely come out. This is because curly hair is more prone to breakage when the hair is dry.
 
-Small amounts come out while showering: Although curly hair is prone to breakage when dry, it can also be that way when wet. I've heard that it's normal for a small amount of hair to come out. Is that true?
 
Tips
-Make sure your hair is moisturized. Not only will this reduce frizz, but it will also keep hair from breaking and being dry/ brittle.
-Use a wide tooth comb while washing your hair. If you have a comb specifically for detangling that will be fine too. These will help wet hair from breaking or combing out.
-Watch the weather report. This will ensure you and help you to be more prepared.
-Satin is a curly haired girl's best friend. You can use a satin bonnet, pillow case, or whatever.
-Make sure you keep the ends of your hair protect. Wear a bun or twist/ braid your hair up.
-Love your hair and all of its faults!
