Good habits for beautiful curly hair
Very often, curly hair has been damaged, straightened, uncurled: taking care of it and making it more beautiful is possible, but it involves regular maintenance with the right products. Even if you straighten your hair, and even more so if you straighten it, you must use appropriate care products that will not only restore the hair fibre, which has been damaged, but also the scalp, which has also been damaged by brushing and straightening. One word of advice: regularity.
To achieve beautiful curly hair, we asked the Shaeri girls for their simple gestures to achieve quick results... Here they are!
Styling your hair well with the right equipment
Taking care of curly hair starts with the most important thing you can do: buy a proper brush! Get a wide-tooth comb to detangle your hair. For styling, you can invest in a boar bristle brush or a good African comb. It's an investment, but it will help you avoid frizz.
Start detangling with the tips and work your way up to the roots. This technique will keep your hair from breaking. If your hair is very, very dry, you can coat your comb with a little oil, which will be even better. We strongly advise you to detangle your hair before washing it, or of course to do it on wet hair after shampooing, when conditioning.
Apply a care product before washing
For healthy, beautiful curly hair, apply a conditioner before washing your hair. Oil baths are very effective, especially in the form of a mist, as they simultaneously nourish and moisturise the hair. Simply mix nourishing oils of your choice (jojoba, coconut, avocado, etc...) and apply the mixture to the lengths, avoiding the scalp: the Oil Care formula is ideal for curly hair. The oil bath serves to counteract the drying effects of shampoo, which cleanses the roots but dries out the ends.
Special shampoo for curly hair: the choice is everything
Choosing the right shampoo for curly hair is as important as applying it! The products sold in supermarkets are full of detergents, which make the shampoos foam up when applied. A special curly hair shampoo will be more nourishing and richer than a regular shampoo. To find a suitable shampoo for curly hair, visit our eshop. Professionals will be able to advise you according to the nature of your hair. Finally, the internet age is working wonders: many curly-haired bloggers showcase their routine in tutorials. The products they use are usually listed in the videos and their descriptions.
Protect your hair
Curly hair is dry hair. It produces less sebum and requires little washing, as it does not grease quickly. One or two washes a week - with a special curly hair shampoo, of course - is more than enough. If you wash your hair too often, you're preventing your scalp from producing oil and damaging your hair with hard water.
You should also avoid using a hair dryer or straightening iron. These appliances damage the hair by drying it out. This weakens the hair and encourages the appearance of split ends. To avoid split ends and hair loss, air drying is the best solution: in addition to preserving the hair, it prevents frizz and gives a more aesthetic result.
To protect your hair, it is advisable to cut it every 3 to 4 months. A few centimetres are enough to ensure their health.
Hydratez vos cheveux quotidiennement
Finally, curly hair needs constant moisture. A daily moisturising mist is usually enough to keep curly hair in good condition. But if you want deep hydration, we recommend Shaeri's curly hair care range with prickly pear extract. You can buy them directly from our online shop.
