While natural curls are beautiful, they need a little more care than other hair types.
Unfortunately, most men with curly hair don’t give enough consideration to their locks; as a result, they end up losing their hair’s texture and appeal.
Find out how you can care for your curly hair in this curly hair guide for men.
Avoid Brushing Your Hair
Combing is undoubtedly a basic grooming need, but if you want to manage your curly hair in its natural, bouncy shape, avoid brushing your hair too much. In fact, use a wide tooth comb to detangle and maintain your hair.
Choose the Right Shampoo
Ordinary shampoos are not for curly hair, and even if you have been using them till now, it’s never too late to change your shampoo. Go for a sulfate and paraben-free shampoo, which also includes hair strengthening ingredients, such as natural oils, glycerin, and apple cider vinegar to maintain your curly hair.
But even with the best shampoo, make sure you don’t shampoo your curly hair more than twice a week as it can lead to moisture loss.
Condition Your Hair
Moisturize your hair with regular conditioning. You can even skip the shampoo and apply conditioner along the length of your hair as it helps your hair retain moisture.
You can also apply a leave-in conditioner, so your hair continues to look fresh and bouncy.
Use Microfiber Towel
Instead of using a regular bath towel for drying your curly hair, use a microfiber towel specially designed for curly hair.
Regularly Trim Split Ends
Curly hair is more prone to dryness which also results in split ends. You can reduce your split ends by regularly conditioning your hair, but if they still show up, don’t forget to get your hair trimmed.
With these helpful curly hair tips, you can continue to rock your charming curls in style.
