2. Exfoliate your scalp
Performing a scalp exfoliation is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your curls. By cleaning this area in-depth, you remove bacteria and product residues that can interfere with its care. This one by Christophe Robin is purifying and contains sea salt.
3. Brush your hair only when wet
If your curls are very tight, you will already know that it is practically impossible to brush them dry, but if you manage it, the only thing you can do is increase frizz.
Therefore, use the brush only when you have wet hair and do it with a flexible brush that makes your task easier. This is from Beter’s Natural Fiber collection.
4. Use conditioners without rinsing.
Conditioners are essential to tame curls and curb the frizz effect, and those that do not need to be clarified are one of the best options in your case. We love this one because it leaves the hair super silky as it manages to keep moisture at bay.
5. Moisturize, hydrate, hydrate
Use a good moisturizing mask about twice a week or even as a conditioner in all washes. You will not regret it. Hydrated curls look much more flexible and shiny than if they are parched. Garnier Fructis Nutritious Hair Food Banana Mask can be used in both ways and also smells lovely…
6. Go for it with the oils
The hair oils should be an essential step in your beauty routine all year round, but in summer, when its use becomes more critical. Use with wet hair to facilitate detangling and with dry hair for a touch of shine and hydration.
One of our favorites is L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil, which contains vitamin-rich avocado oil and antioxidant grape seed oil.
7. Don’t rub with the towel
If when you get out of the shower, the first thing you do is remove the moisture from your hair by rubbing with a regular towel, stop doing it now because you are damaging your hair more than you think. It is best to put on a microfiber towel and let it absorb excess moisture on its own. This is from Aquis.
8. Goodbye dryer
During the summer, and always, but it is more difficult if it is cold, leave the dryer aside. Allow your hair to air dry, thus dehydrating less. If at any time you have to dry it with a dryer, do it with the diffuser and warm atmosphere.
9. Sleep with a silk pillowcase
Like a queen, come on. Silk, or its substitutes, are better for hair than typical cotton sheaths because they allow the hair to glide better and avoid the frizz effect.
Sleeping with a synthetic pillowcase is one of the five most common mistakes we make at night, and that spoils our hair.
10.Put on hat
If you also wear a hat in addition to using a sunscreen for your hair, your curly hair will thank you! Also, this season they take a lot of these accessories to find many that you like.
