4 ways to take care of curly hair

Curly hair is one of the most delicate hair types due to its fiber. The curly shape of the strand indicates that the hair cuticle may be lifted slightly depending on the porosity, making the strands more prone to damage.
Most shampoos contain a detergent ingredient called sodium lauryl sulfate. It cleans the hair very well and produces a foamy lather, but it can also have a drying effect, essentially removing the hair from its natural moisture. To restore moisture to your hair, try shampoos with coconut oil, argan oil, and vitamin E like HASK Curl Care Moisturizing Shampoo, which is sulfate-free.
Curly hair needs deep conditioning products with shea butter or coconut oil like Cantu Flaxseed smoothing or rinse-out conditioner with a silicone-free formula that hydrates dry, brittle hair.
Direct heat styling is probably the worst thing you can do to curl hair. If this is unavoidable, it is important to protect your hair by using a diffuser (this attaches to the front of your hair dryer, allowing for more even heat distribution). A thermal protection product is also essential! Also, get in the habit of using silk pillowcases or wearing a beanie while you sleep.
Give your hair extra hydration and allow your curls to bounce back by including a deep conditioning product in your hair care routine. Whether used once a week, every two weeks, or once a month, it will give your hair the extra hydration it needs. Try The Perfect Hair Sunflower Leave-In Treatment which contains natural sunflower, coconut and castor oils. It helps to penetrate the hair to soften, strengthen and repair it.
