Anyone with naturally curly hair would agree that curly hair is a mixed blessing. Sometimes curly hair gives us a distinctive look, but other time we wish to have straight and smooth hair. I believe the one that were blessed with straight and smooth hair once in a while will also wish to have curly hair. This is a privilege of being a woman, if we don’t have fickle mind about our appearance then the world will go flat.  The thing is as we mature, our curly hair tend to become frizzy and uncontrollable. If only we could maintain the smooth defined curl that got us so many compliment when we were a child. So how can we control our loopy locks?

Now, what make someone got curly hair and the other straight hair? It’s all depend on the shape of the hair shaft, which is determined by the shape of the hair follicle A cross section view of a straight hair would appear round, while a similar view of a curly hair would appear oval. This shape is determined by a genetic pre-disposition.

The simplest way to achieve smooth well defined curl is to use soft shampoo and conditioner. Its best to let it dry naturally, or if you are really have no time you could half dry it and always remember to detangle your hair with wide toothed comb and apply a good detangling product.

Special Care For Curly Hair

Curly hair has a tendency to be dryer, more brittle and prone to frizz that is why it requires more careful treatment than straight hair to keep it looking its best. This has to do with different chemical in curly hair and straight hair. But fret not, modern technology give us option and help in taming our curly hair to look its best. For curly hair it is recommended to use gentle shampoo that is sulfate free formula. You will get the product easily, usually labeled shampoo for curly hair. Make sure you apply conditioner after every shampoo, if you don’t have time, invest in good leave in conditioner that is much more practical as you could apply anytime and boost your hair moisture instantly.

You may wish to wash your hair every other day and not every day as shampoo might be too harsh for your hair. If your activity demands you wash your hair every day, use this trick: wash with shampoo and conditioner one day and use conditioner only the other day. Conditioner also has cleansing ability.
