How To: Handle Curly Hair

Hello loves! As the weather transitions from dry to hot and humid here, I am woefully reminded that my naturally curly hair clamors for more attention this time of year. The sticky weather means that my hair is going to do everything in it’s power to fight any sort of smooth hairstyle I try to trick it into keeping. It also means that when I use the right products, my hair is going to do even better in it’s natural state. So today I wanted to share with you my must have styling products to get the most out of my unrully curls.

Shampoo and Conditioner: As any curly haired girl knows, dry hair is your worst enemy. We won’t even talk about the horror that is dry, breaking frizzy hair. I keep my hair moisturized (and clean) with the Matrix Biologe Keratindose shampoo and conditioner. It supposedly strengthens your hair with Keratin and helps lock in moisture, I don’t know how much it strengthens my hair, but it works wonders in the moisturizing and shine department.

Hair Mask: Since, once again, dryness is the enemy here, I like using a hair mask at least once a month. In the summer, I usually only use it once a month since the air is usually less dry than in the winter. I usually put this on at the beginning of my shower, then wash my face and body and shave if I need to, and wash it out at the end. This is also a great mask to use if you’re going to take a bath. You can use it on wet or dry hair, leave it on for about 10 minutes, and just rinse it out when you’re done.


Hair Oil and Palmade: Once I’m out of the shower, I brush through my hair with a wide tooth comb. Using a brush or fine tooth comb on wet hair can cause massive breakage, which we definitely want to avoid. Then I use about one pump, or a quarter sized amount of my Argon Oil by Unite and run it through my hair, focusing it mainly towards the ends of my hair. This stuff is amazing at keeping frizz at bay and doesn’t weigh down my hair. I finish everything off with my Not Your Mothers Beach Babe Hair Texturizing Cream. I use a little more than a quarter size of this and scrunch it throughout my hair. This is what helps keep my curls defined and in place as I go throughout my day.


All in all, this routine works wonders for my curly hair and hopefully gave some of you an idea of what to try to keep frizz at bay. Even if you don’t have curly hair, you could give this routine a go for some added texture and volume to your hair. Have a fabulous day!
