Curly-haired girls long for sleek locks, while women with straight manes lust over full-bodied curls. What's more, Allison Woodruff, a stylist at Marie Robinson Salon in New York City, says she's noticed that her clients with curly hair tend to be more self-accepting and laid back.
Curly girls are prone to dryness because the hair shaft is lifted and open instead of lying flat. Cutting: Cut curly hair only when it's dry (curls shrink as moisture evaporates, which can change the shape of a cut), says Mylo, a stylist at OC61 in New York City. Cleansing and conditioning: Curly hair needs serious moisture to promote shine and softness, says Scott Cunha, a stylist at Andy LeCompte Salon in Los Angeles.
Curly hair is also weaker than other textures, so beef it up once a week with a strengthening treatment in lieu of conditioner. Styling: Find a styling cream with good-for-your-hair ingredients such as coconut, almond, or light mineral oils (Try Dove Nutritive Therapy Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Smoothing Cream, $5, at drugstores) and smooth a quarter-size blob (less for short hair) from midshaft to ends of wet hair.
Then reshape individual half-inch to one-inch sections of hair by twisting curls away from your face with your fingers. To define curls before a night out, twist face-framing sections of hair around a half-inch curling iron, wrapping them away from your face, says Cunha.
Most professional straightening treatments are now considered dangerous due to their formaldehyde content.
Use clips to part hair into five sections (top left and right, middle back, bottom left and right). Straight hair has an even distribution of proteins, which means it reflects light easily and looks shiny. Cutting: If you have thick hair, Cunha suggests asking your stylist for a blunt cut that hits at your collarbone or chest. For a sleek look, mix two or three drops of shine serum with a pea-to dime-size amount of smoothing cream (depending on hair length) and work through your ends. Lucky for you, creating curl is less of a time suck than eliminating it: Divide dry hair into one-inch sections and wrap each one around the barrel of a one-inch curling iron (don't use the curling-iron clip—wrap the hair around the whole iron). For even looser-looking waves, rub mousse through your hair and then part it down the middle (Try Dove Damage Therapy Curl & Sculpt Defining Mousse, $3, at drugstores).

I was actually considering using Paul Mitchell products however I don’t know the effects on Natural hair. There is definitely hard water in the part of NY where I live : ( My skin alone confirms it. Well my hair is naturally curly and I have recently chemically straightened my hair and bought this product to try, it does nothing as what she has explained. How to style curly hair has been one of the most popular posts on Hair Romance, and certainly the most commented. Thanks for you lovely comment and question Tammy, and I have gone through the same problem so I have a few tips on how to find your curls again.
While you’re in the salon getting a fresh hair cut, I recommend asking for a deep conditioning treatment.
Choose a moisturising shampoo and conditioner for curly hair, and a curl cream or gel to shape your curls. I straightened my hair daily for about three years and absolutely destroyed it.I finally stopped straightening it all together. To keep my curly hair looking healthy and curly (rather than frizzy), I have stopped using straighteners and stopped colouring it too.
But I did also have to have a few inches cut off as the ends were literally snapping off, it was worth it as my hair looks great now.


I must say, as a curly headed lady who fought he natural hair for years, that quitting shampoo and conditioner for apple cider vinegar has been a revelation for me! As you’re doing all the other great stuff suggested here to re-condition your hair, you also might try encouraging the curl you want. I do most of what you suggested and still get rather frizzy curls, but I do have fine, colored hair so that might be why. Have you heard of people cutting long curly hair and the resulting cut is straight or far less curly?
Heyah guys, ive been straightening my hair for over three years, I have naturaly curley hair and I hated it, im really down about my hair asI want it back natural I m only 15years old and needs to start doing something sbout it my hair is reallyshort what shall I doo helpppp!!!!
If you want a perfectly straight look, use the iron from your root until your ends without going in any direction but straight. You want to make sure that each layer of hair is straight so that the outcome of all your hair together will look properly put together. Using the technique mentioned above, begin to straighten each layer of hair, each time letting a little bit more hair down.
Once your done each part, go over your hair one more time all together to ensure that there are no strands left curly. You may want to add a shining product or even hairspray depending on what kind of look you’re looking for. Two newslines caught my undivided attention yesterday: Taylor Swift earned last year twice as Beyonce did in the same period of time! The notorious friendship between Taylor Swift and Lorde is something so fascinating, it’s hardly getting away from the scandal press or the gossip columns.
Not long ago, I signaled that Taylor (and a number of other celebrities) were opting for a bob haircut which made it the hottest hairstyle as of late. From her debut album (Taylor Swift, 2006) to her latest album cover (Red, 2012), the changes are not only visible but more and more radical with each release. Most likely she will be given a Vogue cover, like Taylor’s and from there on, we might be looking at a new Lorde. Lorde worked with MAC stylist (Amber Dreadon) both on her new makeup collection and her looks while attending the major musical awards events this season. Oh, and yes, that deep dark lipstick seems to be part of her upcoming collection as it’s aptly named ‘Heroine’ just like the artist’s first album! There’s a strong possibility that her commercial contract with MAC specifies a coherence in her goth style for at least 2 years, keeping the collection on profit, thusly steadying her image change rhythm in the near future… But marks my words, should she aim for international success, Lorde will ditch her natural curls in no time!
I did some reading over the past weeks and although I was deeply struggling with personal issues, I’m now learning to overcome them. No reproduction, transmission or display is permitted without the written permissions of Rodale Inc. She adds that curls flatter most face shapes (except for round, because the roundness of the curls plays up the roundness of the face) and can act like an instant face-lift, drawing attention away from wrinkles. Ask for long layers that hit between the chin and collarbone, and do yourself a favor by forgoing hard-to-handle bangs, which require too much maintenance for this hair texture.
He suggests washing hair every other day (since daily shampooing will strip hair of natural oils, making it drier) with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner. On days you don't shampoo, you can refresh curls by rewetting them in the shower and using a deep conditioner (Try Pantene Curly Hair Series Dry to Moisturized Conditioner, $5, at CVS).
It will lock in moisture and hold curls without looking or feeling sticky or crispy, says Cunha.
Let curls air-dry or place a diffuser attachment over the nozzle of your blow-dryer—it softens the air that flows through the dryer, preventing frizz.
Lift each section and blow-dry, using a classic mixed-bristle round brush (Try Sonia Kashuk Tools Round Hair Brush, $15, at Target) for volume, or a flat paddle brush for a sleeker look. According to Woodruff, super-straight hair can be severe (especially if you have a narrow face), so most people are better off pumping up the volume for a more flattering effect.
The hair cuticles lie flat and closed along the hair shaft, locking in moisture, so it's more likely to be oily than dry. Apply a golf-ball-size blob of mousse to wet hair (Try TRESemme Climate Control Mousse, $4.50, at drugstores), concentrating on the roots. Blow-dry using a flat mixed-bristle brush, then smooth over any lumpy spots with a flat iron. Coil all the hair on the left side of your head into a loose bun and bobby-pin it in place. This is because the intense heat that comes off of the irons can severely damage your hair while it’s still wet.
Purchase one from a brand that you trust and use it every time you straighten your hair in order to eliminate excess damage from root to tip. Just follow the directions to apply them properly before you begin straightening with a blow dryer or iron. Instead, set aside plenty of time when you can apply the right products and proceed to divide your hair into small sections that can then be blown out with a blow dryer or straightened with an iron. It may take some time to figure out the easiest ways to section out your hair, but once you do, it will save you time because you can move through each section of hair more quickly.
A curl confession truth for you:  I use distilled water from a bottle for the last hair rinse. A lovely reader posed a question in the comments that I am often asked so I thought I’d share the answer here. Over the years of coloring, straightening I have lost the “good curl” that use to be in my hair how do I get it back? Curly hair is also cut quite differently to straight hair, and a few layers will help your hair spring back into curls. Curly hair is naturally drier than straight hair, and needs moisture to stop it looking frizzy.


I know they’re still there, and every time you wear them curly they will look better than the time before. I’ve always tried to take good care of my hair, however I straightened and coloured my hair (I tried most colours at some point or another) throughout my school days.
I stared using different techniques of styling, sulfate free shampoos, lots of conditioner, and protein. I use about half a cup of apple cider vinegar mixed with about 300 mls water whenever I need to wash my hair, and it is never oily or frizzy, my curls have great definition, no styling products or blow dry necessary. It’s probably better to let your hair air dry, but I never have the time so I love my diffuser. Avoid straightening your hair and give it a week or two and see if you notice your hair changing. I been coloring my curly hair for 13 yrs and now it’s really taking away my beautiful curls and giving me lots of frizzy. But how ‘natural’ is straight hair and how bending the nature contributes to being a celebrity? Studies are constantly pushing new conclusions, shaping new characteristics for the dream entertainer.
Two brilliant, very young singers from two different parts of the world tied a seemingly unreal friendship over the past couple of months.
They’re both writing and composing the music that made them famous and they’re both… curly headed!
Fast forwarding to 2014 when a newly bob-styled young Miss Swift continues her world domination as she will most certainly release her new album this year. As such, her straightened hair from the Grammys could very well be a giveaway of what’s coming up next in terms of image for Lorde, the internationally recognized and acclaimed entertainer!
She’s barely in her first fame year so it may be a little to early to speculate on how her image evolution will turn out in time.
To make your blowout last two or three days, Cunha suggests doing spot touch-ups along the hairline (which tends to get frizzy) with a flat iron and sprinkling dry shampoo (Try Got2b Fat-Tastic Dry Shampoo, $6, at drugstores) into the roots to soak up any oil and nix greasiness.
Divide hair into sections, then blow-dry each one, lifting hair with a round boar-bristle brush as you blast from roots to ends. If you hold the iron horizontally, it will create more '30s-or '40s-inspired ringlet-type curls; if you hold it vertically, you'll get a beachier look, says Woodruff.
The more you damage your strands, the harder it will be for you to get them under control and properly styled. Here you will get a complete overview of natural hair weave and how to take care of it by using shampoo for natural hair. Do you twist the hair from midways to the ends and clamp the ends, leaving the twists in until it dries, or do you just twist it as you apply the product and let it untwist right away?
Here are my tips for styling curly hair and there are great product tips in the comments of that post if you’re looking for more recommendations.
I also stopped putting my hair into ponytails, as the elastics pull on the curl and cause breakage.
My daughters (4) taught me to love them and how to take care of them and they have BEAUTIFUL hair ! Although I am still on the look out for the next best thing for my hair, I pretty much have consistency with my hair. This morning I didn’t rub my hair dry, I just sprayed in my leave-in, and wrapped it up for a few mins then added mousse.
Eat well, a diet high in protein helps, and exercise regularly to improve your metabolism as this ill also make your hair grow faster.
There are a few easy tips and tricks that you can use to get the perfect sleek and straight hair from your curly and unruly hair. Isn’t it the least weird that in order to become successful, an artist has to undergo such significant changes and transformation which literally transfigure its persona into something else. While everyone is developing a weird type of hate hobby against Taylor and wait for her slightest misstep to cast the first stone, the two young entertainers have more in common than most people realize.
It was then when she accepted ‘the cut’ – her heavy bangs and stick straight hair indicated a new, boho-hippie direction for until-then curlyheaded Taylor. But given her long, gorgeously curly hair and her friendship with Taylor, chances are she’ll be making a move towards shortening it soon enough. And although it sounds so complicated and strenuous, I came to feel that it’s way more easier than I thought.
Try long layers (the shortest at about chin-length and graduating down from there) to add movement.
Then rub a pea-size amount of shine serum onto the ends to smooth flyaways (Try Suave Professionals Vibrant Shine Spray, $3, at drugstores). Therefore, before taking that iron to your hair, blow dry it completely or simply let it air dry. I start in the back and then work my way to the front on one side, then repeat on the other.
Not only her style is evolving at the speed of light at this stage of her life, but her leaning towards goth could very well vanish once she’ll be out of her teen era. Either way, make sure you get your ends trimmed every six to eight weeks to keep the hair looking healthy. Your curls are beautiful and what I am striving for instead of all the work in straightening.
