If your hair looks like mine does in the above picture, you are most likely to actually have curly hair (maybe even without knowing it). I used to think myself that my hair just had big waves in it, when instead I not only have wavy, but even quite curly hair!
Whenever you comb your curls when they are dry, you will end up having huge, poofy and frizzy hair. You can see that even better when looking at the back of my curls:
So if your hair looks anything like mine in the two shown pictures, I have good news for you: You are a curly and with only a few steps you will be able to get well defined, frizz-free curls! It is most likely that you will see a huge improvement after having washed them curl-friendly for the first time, but also except more improvement as you head on to your curly-hair journey.
This is how my hair usually looks like:
To start embracing your curls, I advise you to do the following (you can get to a whole post on each topic by clicking on it):
- Only comb your curls when they are wet and soaked with conditioner otherwise your hair looks huge, poofy and is frizzy.
- Either let your curls air dry, or use a diffuser to blow-dry your curls. If you decide to use a diffuser, make sure you don’t move around like you would usually do when blow-drying without a diffuser.
- Throw out that terry towel of yours out and use an old t-shirt instead to get your curls ready to dry them. Rubbing your curls with a terry towel after you washed them causes frizz and keeps your curls from forming nice clumps.
- Apply a curl-friendly styler that not only keeps away frizz, but also helps your curls to stay in clumps
- Curly hair usually is dry and needs to be well moisturized – to get frizz-free curls I recommend applying silicone- and sulfate-free products
