Curly Hairstyles for Naturally Curly Hair
Learn How to Get These Curly Hairstyles that Won’t Mess with Mother Nature!
Got natural curly hair? Don’t hate it . . . Embrace it! Curly hairstyles are sweet, sexy, and ultra-feminine! So many of my curly haired clients choose to go smooth and work against their natural curl by using relaxers, blow dryers, hot rollers, flatirons or curling irons. That’s fine, it’s a personal choice, but when chemicals and hot tools are used over and over again in order to make your hair do something it doesn’t want to do . . . your hair inevitably ends up paying the price. Instead of putting in all that hard work and damaging your hair, why not take the path of least resistance and enhance your curly hair instead?
Learning to love your natural curls can be liberating. If you’ll look around at some iconic, natural beauties, you’ll find that enhancing their natural tendencies, rather than fighting them, seems to be one of their top beauty secrets. Plus, haven’t you found that no matter how hard you try, mother nature seems to have her way in the end anyways?
Here’s a quick and easy tutorial from Tamara, of Ford Models, on how to get 3 totally chic, natural curly hairstyles from one haircut. She demonstrates easy ways to make the most of your naturally curly hair. In addition, she gives her favorite product suggestions to keep hair healthy and shiny, and your curly hairstyles looking fabulous!
Step by step how-to tips:
- Step 1: Curly hair needs lots of moisture to stay healthy and hydrated so regular conditioning is a must. In addition to using a conditioner after you shampoo, and a deep conditioning when needed, apply a leave-in conditioner before styling your hair. Apply it from mid-shaft to ends and comb it through with a wide tooth comb to decrease tangles. I’m a big fan of Paul Mitchell Leave-In Conditioner because it’s lightweight and good for all hair types.
- Step 2: To define natural curls, Tamara suggests scrunching a product like, Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious into your hair while it’s still damp. This product is one of my personal favorites! You only need about a nickel size amount of product for shoulder length locks.
- Step 3: Let your hair air dry whenever possible. Or, use a diffuser attachment when choosing to blow dry your hair. The diffuser attachment helps to ‘diffuse’ the force of the air so you don’t blowout your natural curls. If you choose to air dry your hair, remember to not touch it until it is completely dry, or you run the risk of added frizz.
Getting a great looking hairstyle doesn’t mean you need to spend a ridiculous amount of time on your hair.
