A bit too dry


Reasons for dry hair are too many: genetics, chemicals, blow dryers, thermal hair care treatment, or even swimming since chlorine does a great deal of damage. While dry hair could ruin your hairdos, its treatment is pretty easy and straight forward!



Using shampoos/conditioners with hydrating agents and eating foods that are very high in omega-3.


Too tangled


Chemical processes can hurt your hair gravely, and that includes the cuticle, so as a consequence, hair strands can get WAY too tangled.



The damage is already done but don’t make it worse by violently combing it out… Instead, use some extra conditioner while combing your hair so you wouldn’t have to use any strength with it.

   Not the  right length

You hear a lot of people complain that their curly hair is too short or that it never grows to the length they wish for. This is pretty common among naturally curly folks since curly hair tends to break more than straight or wavy hair. However, we got you covered.


Split ends need to end, simple as that. They are part of the reason your hair breaks too soon. You can cut them off before they do it on their own to have more control over the hair growth cycle. If you are wondering about frequency, a couple of inches off every 2 months will be very sufficient.

Untamable Frizzy


It’s true that frizziness is not exclusive to curly hair, but curly hair is more susceptible to it. So we are claiming it.



The healthier your hair, the less frizzy it could get. However, as you go on your healthy hair journey, make sure to use anti-frizz products to lessen the look of it.




Thermal hair care treatment


  Out of hand volume


Someone who has straight hair might never think of volume as an issue, but someone with curly hair knows that something as small as having too much volume, can make life harder.


This one has a simple solution: Experience with haircuts to discover which haircut is suitable for your hair volume.

Triangle Hair


This issue’s name is not familiar, but you know you went through this once before.


This is when your hair straightens out a bit from the top starting from your hair roots and then starts curling down at the bottom. This results in your hair making the dreaded triangle shape.



Hair mousse. Just some hair mousse on your hair can fix this issue. The way to do it is by adding some mousse to your curls before you diffuse.

All curly-haired models seem to have a big thick bed of hair, but what about those of us who suffer sometimes from thinning? 
Thinning can origin for many   reasons, while they are valid and   every human can go through them; it doesn’t change the fact that it changes the way our hair looks and can affect how a person perceives their image.
Reasons can be one of the following: genetics, nutrition deficiency, stress, diet, an illness, or something else entirely.


First things first, cancel panic from your schedule. Avoid hairdos that put stress on your hair follicles: updos, ponytails, and top buns.

While everyone uses diffusers, naturally curly people depend on it every day. If you think you can wait for your hair to dry on its own in order to start your day, then you’ll start it by midnight because curly hair takes longer to dry at normal room temperature.



Did you have a sleepover somewhere with no diffuser underhand? There are a lot of new “creative” ways of replacing a diffuser, like using a strainer for example. Yes, they mean the kitchen strainer. Although we won’t recommend it, it does appeal to a lot of people; saying it did almost the exact same job.


The next logical solution is to go back to the bases: Any hair dryer will do!

However, hair products and accessories have left little undone. Check below for a solution on how to get bangs without sacrificing your curls!


There are now hairpieces that have bangs attached, they are not the solution you were expecting, but a small extension that can be used as easily as a hairpin the best option for perfect looking bangs with no effort.

Scheduling a wash


Do you wash your hair every day? Wash it every three days? When to wash your curly hair can be a hassle, it almost requires a business level calendar! You hear people say washing it daily will result in thinning, you then hear that delaying it a day will build up grease… and the window for perfect looking curls comes in a small window, between “just washed” and “it’s been too long it needs a refreshment”



Plan your week ahead, if there is an important day in your calendar, make sure to plan your hair wash around it, if not, three to four times a week will be great.




If you have naturally curly hair and you are new at transitioning to no-heat curls, we know the struggle you’re facing. You’re going to have to try as many routines and as many curly hair products as you can to find the “one” that will fit with your hair like a key to its lock!
