Tips to Ensure Your Curly Hair Always Looks Perfect

March 15, 2022

We (hairdressers and clients alike) all know that curly hair has a life of its own: Curls seem to change shape, condition, and position on a daily basis. This type of hair tends to be on the dry side and prone to frizz, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make it shine and form beautiful ringlets. Want to know how to achieve this? Let’s take a look at how to care for curly hair. Plus, discover the best products and treatments to make your waves, curls, and coils look more defined, manageable, and healthy.


Best Salon Hair Treatments For Dry Curly Hair

Did you know that 6 out of 10 of your clients have textured hair? In an overloaded world of products for curly hair, you have the opportunity as a professional to help simplify and elevate your client’s curly hair routine with the product lines like our RE/START CURLS. Below, learn the key elements of caring for curly hair to help bring out the best in your client’s curls.

Pre-treatment: This is one of the curly hair care methods that has become very popular lately. To achieve this, you condition curly hair with a conditioning cream, spray, or oil before shampooing to provide an extra dose of moisture. This will help improve the strength of the curls. Next, wash the hair as per usual, then apply a hair-enriching mask.

Method and frequency of washing: When washing textured hair, it is recommended to always finish with cold water to help close the cuticles. It is often said that this increases the hair’s shine, regardless of hair type. That said, this step is even more important for curly hair because it helps prevent frizz. As for how often to wash curly hair—to keep it well moisturized—you should space out the washes. If you notice the hair starting to dry out, reduce the number of weekly shampoos further and add extra nutrition.

Drying and styling: It is very important to dry textured hair with microfiber towels that absorb moisture and are gentler on curls, so that they do not frizz. For styling, use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to tame curly hair. Start at the ends and gradually work your way up to the roots. Then, apply a product to help enhance and define the curls and give them splendid shine, volume, and vitality.

Regular haircuts: Encourage clients to have regular cuts in order to prevent split ends. When cutting curly hair, do so only with dry strands. If you start cutting the hair while it’s wet, dry it before finishing the job. This way is much more professional and allows you to create the perfect shape for the curls.

Curly Hair Care Tips to Share With Your Clients

Curly hair care doesn’t end at the salon. In fact, curls tend to need some extra pampering compared to other hair types. Offer clients these tips to follow at home:

  • Use less shampoo and more conditioner. When it comes to curly hair care routines, this rule is crucial. As was mentioned above, if you notice that your client’s hair is very dry, recommend that they reduce shampooing.
  • The magic words are “moisturize” and “nourish.” For curly hair, moisture and nourishment are absolutely necessary. This is true before, during, and after washing. Think of it this way: Curls and conditioner are inseparable.
  • Style hair with a diffuser. Make sure your hairdryer has the diffuser attached. This helps preserve the natural curl pattern as you dry your hair. Remember to set your blow dryer on low power and always use cold air, in order to respect textured hair.
  • Limit applying heat and touching curls. If you notice that curly hair is falling flat, stop using heat. It’s also best not to touch your hair without using a leave-in product.
