Curly Hair Help for Hot Summer Months

The Smart Girl’s Guide to Curly Hair Help

A common question that my clients ask as summer approaches is “What can I do with my curly hair for summer?” My answer is always to work with their natural curl and use the right hair care products to keep curly hair shiny and bouncy while fighting frizz. Here are a few of my favorite products!

Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner

First and foremost, if you don’t have a great moisturizing shampoo and conditioner for your curly hair, get one now. A shampoo and conditioner like Matrix Curl Life, is perfect for all types of curly hair because it helps to smooth frizz and define curls.

Curly hair needs plenty of moisture, which is why Matrix Curl Life Shampoo and Conditioner are great!

Detangler

I always use a Detangler on curly hair before combing it out with a wide tooth comb and you should too! This is especially important for those with curly hair as your curls can easily tangle and break. Spray the Detangler on towel-dried hair and comb through with a wide-tooth comb. If you use a brush or regular comb, you run the risk of breaking hair in its wet, fragile state, which will cause additional frizz. And frizz is not a curly-haired girl’s friend!

Shine Enhancer

Don’t forget to buy a great styling product or two, to enhance shine, define curls and add bounce. Redken Ringlet 07 Curl Perfector, is a great product that seems to do it all by enhancing shine, defining curls, adding bounce and even controlling frizz. I like this product because it is a hybrid of a styling cream and a gel, which are both great products used to control curly  hair.

Sun Protection

Curly hair needs extra TLC during the hot, summer months. Try adding a few extra sun protection products to your hair care product inventory.  Aveda has a new line called, Sun Care which protects your hair from UV rays, salt and chlorine, all of which can wreak serious havoc on your hair. Aveda may be a little on the pricey side, but I love their products . . . and they smell great!

Deep Conditioner

In addition to using some of these great products which are formulated for curly hair, consider adding in a weekly or bi-weekly deep conditioning treatment for your curly hair. You can treat yourself and have this done at the salon or, do it yourself at home. Just remember in order to get the best deep conditioning results, you will need to add heat to your hair and let the conditioner stay on the hair for at least 15 to 20 minutes. One of my favorite deep conditioners is, Paul Mitchell’s Color Protect Reconstructive Treatment.

So, if you keep in mind that your curly hair needs extra moisture . . . especially during the summer, and you give it what it wants . . . you’ll be fine and looking marvelous!!
