Curly Hair Tips
Lush™ is all about giving love and health to hair.
That means all hair: straight, wavy, curly, thick, thin, short, long, hot pink…
Different textures and densities of hair need different treatments and attention in different ways.
While our gummies work to make your hair healthier, shiner, and longer, it is also up to you to maintain your hair’s health.
We have a few tips for curly hair that will make styling, sleeping, and embracing your hair so much easier.
Follow these 5 tips and you’ll begin to love your gorgeous curly locks even more!
1 Brush with the correct tools
Curly hair tends to be fragile and lacking in moisture compared to other hair textures. We all know that if you brush your curly hair when it's dry, it will end up becoming a giant poof! But when you brush hair wet, it is more fragile and stretches easily and can break!
So, when you have to brush it damp, use a wide tooth comb and brush from the ends to the roots. It detangles like magic and won’t pull or stretch your hair as much as a comb or brush would.
2 Find the products that fit your hair
There are endless products out there— since curly hair comes in different textures, densities, and curl size, we recommend you go to a stylist who specializes in curly hair and ask which products they think will work best for your hair.
When you apply mousse or styling cream to your hair, put some product right onto a wet brush and brush it from roots to ends. This will apply the product evenly throughout your hair and also help tame frizz. This trick works especially well when your hair is dry and needs a "refresh."
3 Get regular trims
It can seem counterproductive to get haircuts when you may want to grow out your hair. In reality, getting a trim every 5-7 weeks is crucial to having bouncy, delicious curls. Trim just enough off to get all the dead, dry ends off— leaving behind only the freshest of hair.
Your hair will be healthier, less frizzy, and that extra deadweight won’t pull down your curls.
4 Use a diffuser
If curly haired girls were to take a blow dryer and blast their locks, they’d be left with a giant mess of fluff. However, when you add a diffuser to the blowdryer, everything changes for the better.
Diffusers are meant to dry your hair into its beautiful natural curl pattern. They can also accentuate your curls and make them look bouncier and curlier. If you have some sections of your head that are less curly, a diffuser can help make all your curls look uniform and clean.
5 Protect your curls while you sleep
Sleeping with curls is only easy when you do it the right way— there are many options for all curl types. First thing is first, sleep on a silk pillowcase to protect your locks, reduce static, and keep the oils from your scalp that benefit your curls from being sucked up into the fabric of your pillowcase.
If your hair is less curly, sleep with your hair in a low ponytail or twist it into a bun on the top of your head.
If your hair texture is very curly, you can tame your curls while you sleep by putting them into two or more braids.
Don’t wish your hair was straight and don’t give up on your locks!
