There is so much information about curly hair out there these days its like a curly hair revolution. I mean seriously where was all of this information when I was in curly hair denial (but that's a story for another post). So if you are still in the dark ages with your curly hair its time for you to walk into the light... of the curly renaissance that is.
So here are some tips
1) Use a sulfate free shampoo. Sulfates can cause curly hair to dry out further. Sulfates are also found in hand soaps, doesn't that sound a bit harsh to put on your hair. Opt for something gentle for your curls.
2)Finger de-tangle or use a wide-tooth comb on WET hair. Do not attempt to de-tangle curly hair dry. Not only is it such a strenuous and painful task but it causes your hair to break and split ends. Rather de-tangle in the shower the weight of the water will help you and you can use your trusty wide-tooth comb. Wide-tooth combs tug on the hair less than regular combs.
3)Moisturize. Conditioner is your friend!!!!! This is probably the most important tip! You should gravitate towards any conditioner that is targeted towards dry or frizzy hair they should offer tons of moisture.
