Understand Your Curl Type

Curly hair comes in various patterns, and knowing your specific curl type can help you choose the right products and techniques.

  • Type 2 (Wavy): Loose, S-shaped waves.
  • Type 3 (Curly): Defined curls that form ringlets.
  • Type 4 (Coily): Tightly coiled or kinky curls.

Use a Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner

Curly hair tends to be drier because natural oils have a harder time traveling down the twists and turns of the hair shaft.

  • Sulphate-Free Shampoo: Use a sulphate-free shampoo to gently cleanse without stripping your hair of its natural oils. 
  • Hydrating Conditioner: Opt for a rich, hydrating conditioner to lock in moisture and keep your curls soft and manageable. Look for ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, and glycerin. Using FUL's All Rounder Conditioner is perfect to keep your hair hydrated and frizz free.

Incorporate Deep Conditioning Treatments

Deep conditioning treatments are essential for keeping curly hair moisturized and healthy.

  • Weekly Treatments: Apply a deep conditioning mask once a week. Ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and glycerine can provide intense hydration and repair. FUL's Intense Moisture Hair Mask is designed to be a weekly treatment that rejuvenates your hair leaving is soft, hydrated and shiny.
  • Leave-In Conditioners: Use a leave-in conditioner to provide ongoing moisture and prevent frizz. Look for lightweight formulas that won’t weigh down your curls.

Detangle with Care

Detangling curly hair requires a gentle approach to avoid breakage and maintain curl integrity.

  • Wide-Tooth Comb: Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to detangle your hair while it’s wet and coated with conditioner.
  • Detangling Spray: Apply a detangling spray to help smooth out knots and make the process easier.

Avoid Heat Styling

Heat can damage curly hair, causing it to lose its natural pattern and become frizzy.

  • Air Dry: Whenever possible, let your hair air dry to preserve your curls’ natural shape and avoid heat damage.
  • Heat Protectant: If you must use heat styling tools, always apply a heat protectant spray to shield your hair from damage.

Sleep on Satin

Sleeping on a satin pillowcase or using a satin bonnet can help preserve your curls and reduce frizz.

  • Satin Pillowcase: Satin pillowcases create less friction than cotton, helping to maintain your curl pattern and prevent breakage.
  • Satin Bonnet: A satin bonnet keeps your curls in place and reduces the risk of frizz and tangles while you sleep.

Maintaining curly hair requires a blend of the right products, techniques, and a bit of patience. By understanding your curl type and incorporating these tips into your hair care routine, you can keep your curls looking their best—defined, frizz-free, and full of life.
