Are you a man with short curly hair?
Then this post is for you as it highlights 6 trusted tips and tricks on how to style short curly hair for men.
So let’s get started.
1. Invest in the Right Curl Defining Products
For men with short curly hair, the first step is to invest in appropriate hair styling products that help define the curls. And to do so, you need to first figure out what type of curl pattern you have. Is it coily or wavy?
Your type of curly hair will help you figure out the right kind of product for your curls.
2. Shampoo Less Frequently
It goes without saying that curly hair is drier than any other hair type due to the uneven shape of the hair strand.
So to manage and style your short curly hair, you need to keep your shampooing frequency to a minimum, as shampooing your hair too often can rip natural moisture from it and leave it dry and damaged.
3. Hair Treatments are a Must
For styling short curly hair, you must incorporate hair treatment into your hair care routine at least once every two weeks. Regular hair treatments will help keep your scalp and hair healthy.
4. Ditch Your Regular Towel
Your regular towel may be helping you dry out your curls but did you know that it causes friction that can damage your curls? So ditch your regular towel and replace it with a microfiber towel or a worn-out t-shirt, as they are gentler on the ringlets.
5. Let Your Hair Air Dry
The key to styling short curly hairs for men is to let your hair dry naturally. You may be tempted to use a dryer or a diffuser but hold on. Air drying your hair can help your curls retain their shape better.
6. Invest in a Wide Toothed Texture Comb
Instead of brushing your hair, choose a comb with wide teeth, so it doesn’t damage your curls.
And there you have it. Style your short curly hairs with these 6 trusted tips and tricks, and you will never have a bad hair day.
