How To Style Curly, Frizzy Hair

If you have curly hair, chances are you’re used to dealing with frizz — a curly-haired girl’s number one enemy. Curly hair is more prone to frizz because it is naturally drier than straighter hair. Learning how to care for dry and damaged hair is essential to creating smooth, sleek strands.

1.Use a wide-toothed comb

Because curly hair is so dehydrated and fragile, brushing it dry with a traditional bristle brush can wreak havoc on the hair cuticle. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb to gently comb out your knot.

2.Comb from the bottom up

If you start detangling your hair from the top, you risk pushing the knots farther down which can cause breakage, unruly ends, and frizz. A better technique for working with your curls without the frizz is to gently remove tangles from the bottom up, using your comb to tackle each knot one at a time.

3.Use a deep conditioning hair mask

Treating your tresses to a deep conditioning hair mask at least once a week will go a long way toward taming frizzy locks, especially if it's color-treated hair.

4.Get regular Trims

Getting a trim every six to eight weeks is essential for keeping hair healthy. It keeps split ends at bay and makes curly hair more manageable and easy to style.  

5.Slather on a high-powered serum

Hair serums not only fight frizz, but also help define each curl and give them shine. For best results, drop a dime-size amount of serum onto your palm and rub your hands together, then distribute evenly to soaking wet hair.

6.Use essential oils to stay moisturized

To increase the clarity and elasticity of curls, try mixing essential oils with your favorite styling products. Essential oils can moisturize your hair, seal the cuticles, and prevent your curls from feeling stiff or crunchy.

7.Reach for the curling iron

It may seem redundant to use a curling iron on curly hair, but it's actually a great tool for revitalizing saggy, limp locks in between shampoos.

8.Use a nightcap

When sleeping, you only need to tie your hair into a high ponytail, then fix it with a hair loop, and then cover it with a silk scarf or night cap. When you wake up and take off your nightcap, your curls are still intact.
