Curly Qs: Not So Knotty

It was recently pointed out to me that I have an interesting hair rotation. It all started when I was telling my colleague that I only detangle my hair in the shower with conditioner. She asked me how I get rid of knots in-between washes. Since I don’t wash my hair everyday, like most girls with curly hair (since our hair tends to be drier), I’ve developed a system: The first day after a shampoo, I wear my hair loose. The second day I either use a headband to push it back or rock a half-up, half-down style because this masks any droopy curls or frizzy strands. And the third day, right before I wash my hair, I sport a ponytail to hide any tangles.

Do you have your own hair routine? Whether it’s a system to avoid knots, tame frizz or keep your strands shiny— we want to know what your go-to tricks are.
