Top tips to help deal with kinky hair

While some straight-haired girls would give their most expensive jewelry for just half the texture of curly hair, it’s difficult to fully appreciate your waves when they’re frazzled from all the straightening and you’re knee-deep in frizz-controlling oil and hair conditioners. From struggling to define each curl and vigorously patting down unwanted volume to trying different detangling techniques. Try these three top tips to tame your mane, embrace those waves and feel awesome!

This means wetting your hair, skipping shampoo and just using conditioner. It sounds ridiculous, but it’s a brilliant strategy for dodging frizz. Curly hair tends to get very dry, so the extra nourishment works wonders, especially on mega kinky curls.

Use a T-shirt to dry your hair instead. It’s less abrasive and will reduce damage. Its smoothness will also help avoid tangles too

The way you brush your hair and what you use to do it have a surprising effect on your finished look. Hairbrushes encourage frizz so choose a wide-toothed comb, which sails through curls and prevents breakage. Only comb your hair while it’s wet, with conditioner in it. For detangling, finger comb first by working out the kinks with your fingers before you comb. This reduces unnecessary pulling on your roots.
