Short curly hair presents, first of all, the most well-known problem for women: the hated CRESPO. Then, let’s not forget that with short curly hair it is extremely difficult to tame the volumes .
Let’s tame short curly hair
Let’s see in twelve simple steps how to overcome these problems and enjoy our spectacular short curly hair:
(Applies to all hair types, but obviously it becomes even more necessary for those that are more difficult to manage) Let us get help from a professional:
hairstylists, like any self-respecting professional, also have specializations . Choose one that is expert in managing particular hairstyles, such as short curly hair;
We find and use a special shampoo:
the scalp of women with short curly hair is different from that of women with other types of hair, and each scalp requires a different treatment during washing. There are shampoos created specifically for this , let’s use them!
As with shampoo, even conditioner can be “specialist”:
Do not use the brush:
when we need to untie the knots, even more frequent in curly and frizzy hair , we NEVER use the brush , but always and only our fingers, with hair always wet, if not even wet and always after using the special conditioner;
Using compresses to eliminate or greatly reduce frizz:
argan oil lends itself wonderfully well for the elimination of frizz from our short curly hair. Let’s make a nice compress with this oil by letting act for at least an hour . Then we wash our hair pretty well;
if we wrap our hair in a “turban” made with a towel and keep it up for at least twenty minutes we will have eliminated most of the water but we will also have avoided the annoying “flat effect” ;
The hairdryer (if absolutely essential) ALWAYS with its own diffuser:
for the use of the hairdryer three simple rules apply: 1. always use it at low speed; 2. Always use it at a not too high temperature; 3. Always use it with your diffuser and not too far from your hair;
Gravity can also help us:
while we dry the hair (normally with the head upwards), every now and then we put ourselves upside down because positioning the hair in a different way, you will avoid that annoying “flat effect “Typical of” still “drying of short curly hair ;
Avoid touching hair while styling:
during styling, avoid touching them with your fingers (never brush them, for heaven’s sake !!!) so you won’t alter the natural shape of the curl;
if instead of the normal curls, you want to turn with a beautiful bushy hair, turn each strand around an index while styling the hair;
Less curls and more waves:
if instead of curls you only like undulations, the trick is to make a bun and dry them like this, tied ;
The use of the hairpin:
as we said short curly hair is “rebellious”. Well, to “bend” them to your will use hairpins where necessary .
