As great as curly hair may look, maintaining them is often challenging. Especially for guys who would buzz it off too soon instead of investing in time and effort. But don’t let the extra need for maintenance stop you from growing your curls out and showing them off. Instead, incorporate these four pro tips for men with curly hair and combat all your curly hair problems.
Here’s what you need to do.
#1. Wash Less
Curly hair is drier and more damaged, and washing it frequently will further deprive your scalp and hair of moisture and natural oils. To balance out moisture levels, reduce the frequency of washing your hair to 1-2 times a week.
#2. Wash Using the Right Products
While washing less frequently is the key, you should also choose the right products for washing your hair. Make sure you opt for a moisturizing shampoo and hydrating conditioner rich in natural fats and protein. With the right products, you can provide your dry hair with the moisture they need and keep your curly hair nourished.
#3. Use a Styling Cream to Define Your Curls
To manage your curly mane well, you need to invest in styling creams that can define your curls while reducing dryness and damage to your curly hair. Choose styling creams that can help lock in moisture in your hair, so they look shiny and well-styled.
#4. Use a Wide-Tooth Comb
Curly hair is prone to get tangled; without the appropriate comb, you may break and damage your curls further. Hence, you need to invest in a wide tooth comb instead of a brush, as the comb will help you detangle your hair while maintaining your curls.
