The Do’s & Don’ts of Curly Hair Maintenance

Oh, the joys and woes of having curly hair!

Being a curly-haired gal can often feel like a blessing and a curse. There’s so much that goes into caring for curly hair and there’s often no one clear-cut answer on how to do it. But here, we’re sharing with you a few do’s and don’ts on how to maintain the most beautiful rizos.

Do know your curl type. Are you a 2a or a 3c? Knowing your unique pattern and type of curl will help in determining your routine and selecting the best products to use.

Don’t ever,ever brush your hair while it’s dry! This is damaging to strands. It will create split ends, breakage and cause frizz to the ends.

Do condition, condition, condition! Curly hair tends to be drier than most, so incorporating a conditioning treatment into your regimen, like Twisted Sista’s Intensive Leave-In Conditioner, will instantly hydrate your strands and prevent frizz without weighing your hair down.

Don’t blow dry without using a diffuser. This add-on nozzle is a protectant that will help minimize frizz and prevent damage to your curls.

Do style your locks with a product that includes essential oils, such as Twisted Sista’s Curl Perfection Styling Crème Gel, infused with coconut, avocado and almond oils, which helps saturate and seal in moisture preventing frizz, while elongating and holding curls.
