Common Problems Naturally Curly People Face, and their Solutions!
Having naturally curly hair is not easy, right? We know it, you know it, the people who are not reading this know it, but what else is new?
The issues naturally curly people face are not as known as its difficulty, but if you are curly-haired then you already relate to the issues we are about to mention.
Never the less, worry not! We have the solutions ready for you so that you would not have to look elsewhere. Here is what you need: a pen and paper, and your eyes peeled!
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.
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
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.
Out of hand volume
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.
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!
Can’t get bangs
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.
