How to Style Curly Hair

Hair Texture and Genetics: hair texture is mainly determined by genetics (85-95%), but hormonal shifts during puberty or pregnancy can temporarily change its structure to make it curlier.

Choosing the Right Products: Select products suitable for your specific curl type. Mix a small amount into your leave-in conditioner or curl enhancer cream to test compatibility when trying new products.

Making Curly Hair Shine: Curly-haired women often rely on products to make their locks naturally shiny. Having curly hair also saves time and money on washing needs. If your curls appear dull, use a clarifying treatment to remove product build-up and pollution, restoring vibrancy.

The Nine Yards Never Dull Repair Treatment: An intensive nourishing treatment suitable for all hair types and textures, dehydrated, damaged, chemically treated, curly, or dry hair. This treatment does not contain sulfates, parabens, or MIT.

Easy Styling Tips: Styling curly hair can be challenging but offers versatile and low-maintenance looks. Consider trying a curly shag with face-framing layers or a wavy bob. Embrace your curls and seek guidance from an experienced stylist.

Layered Shag Style: For medium-length curly hair, adding layers can make it appear fuller and less dense. A layered shag style with a darker brown base color enhances the natural sheen of your curls.

Beautiful Wavy Bob: A wavy bob is a perfect transitional style as temperatures drop. This hairstyle features face-framing bangs and light blonde highlights that complement your skin tone.

Curly Mid-Length Bob: This attractive option for mid-length hair can be worn with a left or middle part. Use curl-defining cream and a diffuser for optimal results. Pulling the top portion into a high bun is an alternative style.

Maintaining Healthy Curls: Hydration is essential for curly hair, which tends to have lower porosity levels. Deep conditioning treatments with sulfate-free formulas and incorporating nutritious foods into your diet can help keep curls healthy. While sleeping, silk pillowcases or satin bonnets can prevent moisture loss and reduce friction.
