When summertime humidity embraces you, your hair is usually the first to notice, especially if you have curly hair. It’s true that girls with pin-straight hair dream of having curly hair, and girls with a curly head of hair wish and pray for straighter, more manageable hair. Don’t let the summer heat ruin your chances at having amazing curly hair. Here are some tips on how to bring out the beautiful curls you have been blessed with when the summer heat is working against you.
This may sound ridiculous, but for ringlet curl style, hair brushing can be very damaging. The act of brushing effectively breaks your curls causing damaged unruly hair. Invest in a wide-tooth comb and make it your practice to comb your hair instead. You can get all the knots out of your hair with a comb and won’t damage the beautiful curls in the process.
By having a stylist that can be certain your hair is always in its best shape, you will increase the longevity of your hair cut. Curly hair is not as easy to cut and trim as straight hair so be certain your stylist knows what they’re doing. Once you meet a stylist that knows your hair and how it works, continue to go to that stylist. A good relationship with your stylist will be reflected in your gorgeous healthy hair.

Curly hair needs to be treated with care in all aspects of hair styling, right down to how you dry it. Avoid a vigorous towel dry after a shower as this will cause your curls to break apart and become instantly frizzy. Try to pat your hair dry with the towel instead of rubbing it with the towel. It’s also best to avoid using a hair dryer unless you need to, and when you do be certain to use the diffuser attachment to reduce the amount of air that reaches your hair.
Having curly hair is a 24/7 commitment, and the commitment continues into your sleeping hours. A satin pillowcase will decrease the friction on your curls that can cause the dreaded frizzy hair in the morning. Help your curls out by giving them a soft satin pillow to sleep on at night.
Curly hair can be a bit of a chore, especially in the summertime. But do not let having curly hair discourage you from having beautiful hair! With a little work and the right stylist you can have head-turning hair all summer long.
