Curly hair often seems to have a mind of its own. Which makes it hard for you to get it to do what you want it to do. Leaving you to conclude in your frustration that your curls are going wild.
Plus there is a list of definite no-nos you need to be aware of if you want to avoid things like frizz. Some of the items on the list you only gain knowledge of from first hand experience unfortunately.
Things like you touch it when damp you’re opening the door to frizz.
Failed to use a diffuser? Ooops your hair might not dry evenly which creates problems.
On humid days should you not dry it completely, again that’s an invitation to a bad hair day.
Clearly moisture is not your hair’s best friend. Which is curious given curly hair is constantly in need of serious moisture. Without it you can forget shine and softness. For some even using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner faithfully to provide parched hair relief still isn’t enough to even come close to soft and shiny.
And if you don’t have access to a stylist who knows how to cut curly hair when it’s dry, well, in that case the magic eight ball says the odds of seeing a mushroom head hairstyle in your future just increased dramatically.
Curls. Can’t live with them. Can’t live without them. Because truth is girls with straight manes at some point long for something more full bodied like a head full of lovely curls. Just another example of the real life conundrum – we always want what we don’t have. Nor can we easily get what we want.
