If you’re thinking that your curls will bounce back quick following the start of your hair journey naturally I have good and bad news. The bad news…unfortunately, they won’t snap into place immediately. After chemical, heat styling treatments, and similar the newly tangled strands require time, patience and plenty of TLC in order to get to normal.
But, staying true to your plan can bring good news that springy ringlets will be surely within reach when you develop healthy (and hopefully, for the rest of your life!) hair habits. Since au naturel hairstyles are the norm, make these techniques into your routine to create a strong foundation for your restored curls.
Decide: Trim or Big Chop
Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to switch into natural-looking hair! While we people who curly like length, a part of the process is cutting off part (or the entire) of our current manes to eliminate any damage that could hinder the choice.
If growing curly hair by yourself is out of the question, you can start by doing trimming. Although it’s not an optimal choice however, the “big cut” (which involves cutting off damaged hair) is the most effective method to show the natural texture of your hair and start fresh for the most healthiest outcomes. This is particularly the case in the case of chemical hair straightening. This produces permanently straight hair that has curly growth.
But, if you’re not mentally prepared for the big cut (which could be an emotional shock) begin with a small amount. The transition process is a marathon, not an event, and cutting off dead ends is an easier way to reset and help you avoid burning yourself out in your hair’s natural growth.
Convert to silk
Naturally curly hair tends to be dryer and more prone to breakage. This is the reason silk scrunchies come in to help. Change to silk scrunchies that reduce pulling, tanglingand scratching and friction that is common with normal hair tie. In the evening, braid all your locks into loose, high ponytail, tie it back with scrunchies, then lay your head on a pillowcase made of silk to stop the harmful consequences of turning and tossing. The “pineapple” hairstyle along with the silky case, will keep your the curls safe and healthy throughout the night.
A deep condition should be experienced at minimum once per week
The shower experience sets the stage for the strength of curly hair, its overall health, and hydration. Be sure to deep treat your hair once per week by using a formula that is rich with B vitamins and fatty acids for restoring vitality to damaged and dry hair.
It’s not just about applying an application of a mask to your hair for a hot second between conditioning and shampooing-the “5-10 minutes” suggested doesn’t work for curls. Instead after shampooing, apply a hair mask to the hair’s strands, wrap your head with a shower cap make sure the bonnet is filled with heat from your blow-dryer, and let it sit for 30 minutes prior to washing. This will deeply moisturize and repair hair’s protective barrier to avoid breakage.
Begin with a simple style routine
If you’re unfamiliar with curling your hair in a curly fashion and have searched for YouTube interventions, you’ve probably gone through a minefield of multi-step routines and lists that vary between people. It’s enough to try an entirely new style, and beginning with a basic four-step method can ease off your first attempt at the styling of newly transformed hair.
Always style your hair when it’s significantly wet. If they become dry during the process then use a spray bottle to wet. This four-step procedure is compatible with the three items you’ll require for styling: leave-in agent as well as gel.
- Make sure you comb your frizz-free super-hydrating cream into strands to give them the most hydrated base. Make sure you don’t make a place in your hair that “should drop.” This technique can encourage movement and volume since you can move your hair on any side during the day.
- Take hair off and apply the curl-defining styling custard, or cream. Apply the formula to hair with your hands, and then twist upwards to form your desired curl. Twist locks that require extra shaping, particularly those that frame your face.
- Flip hair over to make sure it’s in the face of your face. apply the gel with the scrunching motion to seal the hairstyle. Switch your hair over to the right side and continue to scrunch hair upwards then repeat to the opposite side.
- Dry or air dry using diffusers that are attached to the blow-dryer to distribute heat evenly while also lifting and separating hair to give it a more defined curly body.
Oil should be the mainstay of your hair care routine
If you just follow only one of the tips in this list, I’m sure you’ll choose this one. The oil blends (look for ones with Jojoba as well as coconut oil) are among the most adaptable, unsung celebrities of curly hair. Apply a few drops every day to provide a shiny, healthy glow and revive your day-old curls or even heat it up and make it an ingredient in a shampoo before using. Because hair growth is based on healthier scalps I suggest applying the oil to your skin for 10 minutes each week to hydrate your roots and encourage the growth of curly hair.
