How to style my natural curly hair?

December 24th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

my hair is naturally curly, however the curls are big and lose. Gels weigh my hair down too much for the curls to stay. it makes me mad because i think my hair would be beautiful if i could get the curls to hold. So how do i make my natural curls stay without having a bunch of frizz?

Have you tried using a curl cream or a leave-in conditioner? Also you might have tried a gel with too strong a hold. Look for liquidy gels that wont weight your hair down (a good one is Herbal Essences Totally Twisted).

Here are some basic tips for curly hair that you might find helpful:
*Try to find a stylist who knows how to work with curly hair. You can find ratings here: http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlsalons
*Don’t shampoo every day.
*Comb conditioner through hair in the shower.
*Never use a brush, only a comb, or better yet fingers, when wet.
*Apply styling products to dripping wet hair
*Use styling products suited for your hair type. Don’t know yours? http://www.naturallycurly.com/hair-types

*Avoid terrycloth towels; use microfiber or tshirts instead.
*Air dry or use a diffuser with your blowdryer.
*Don’t touch your hair while it’s drying.

For specific products for your hair type you might want to explore the forums at:


There you can find others with the same hair type and try out some of their favorite products. So that’s really useful.

Lastly, it has made my hair so much better since I started the curly girl method! I used to almost never wear it down (it was a frizz/poof ball), but now I have pretty, shiny curls. ~:) It’s pretty radical—no sulfates (shampoo) or silicones—but it’s so great for curly hair.
