Curly hair looks gorgeous, but for people who have to manage those curls only, they know how big of a task it is. Even with the best curly haircare products, you may end up with hair that looks dull and frizzy. Or even when they look beautiful, and people wish to have those perfect curls, it’s always tough to manage those curls.
Here are three secret curly hair hacks you won’t know about. These hacks will surely help your curly hair shine and bounce back to life.
#1. Apply Conditioner on Dry Hair
For most people, conditioner application is a wet-hair process. But not when you have curly hair.
If you have curly hair, you should apply conditioner to dry hair as it will moisturize your curls and keep them hydrated. But if you use conditioner after washing your hair, your hair will not absorb as much conditioner.
Here’s how to do it.
Before you step in the shower, apply conditioner to your dry hair and leave it for 5-15 minutes before washing it.
#2. Use a T-Shirt to Dry Your Hair
Individuals with curly hair are often recommended not to use a regular towel for drying their curls. Instead, they should use a microfiber towel.
But did you know that using a t-shirt to dry your curls is a great way to smooth curls and manage frizz? T-shirts made from a soft material allow you to maintain your curl pattern and dry your curls, leaving frizz-free smooth curls.
#3. Switch From a Cotton Pillow to a Satin Pillow
When you put in so much effort managing your curls during the day, a slight change when you sleep can make a great difference. Switch from cotton to satin pillow case as it helps reduce friction between your hair and the pillowcase and helps you manage knots and frizz in the morning.
