“You have naturally curly hair? You must feel so blessed!” Well, not always! Any of us curly cues have gone through our share of envy for the classic runway bob. The grass is always greener and all that…Our stylist Lily Nieves has curly hair. And she really is blessed! And you can be, too. Here’s how.
“One of the best ways to manage curly hair is to have it trimmed regularly or every 3 months,” Lily says. “Not many people know that hair develops split ends after this period, and a regular trim is necessary in order to keep your hair healthy.”
She said the goal isn’t to lose length, but to lose unhealthy hair ends. Another must is to work with a stylist who can determine the type of hair cut that will best fit the shape of your face and texture of your hair. Finally, she advises to avoid shampooing everyday, because curly hair can tend to be dry.
“Shampoos are made of ingredients that are designed to clean the hair of dirt,” explains Lily, “but in the case of curly hair, these ingredients also strip the hair from its natural moisture leaving it drier and duller than ever. If you have to shampoo every day, at least make sure that you apply a conditioner afterwards. By doing this, you are helping your hair get some moisture back on.”
