What Can You Say, You Love Your Hair And You Hate Your Hair

December 5, 2010 by Clark 

Its not that your hair isn’t beautiful, or fun, but it can drive you nuts. Part of the problem is that for too long hair care was mostly one size fits all. Now I’ve seen a number of things in my life that I considered miraculous, but I’ve never seen anything that was actually one size fits all. The same problem has been true for hair. Curly hair is different than straight hair, long hair is different than short hair and you could lose your mind trying to keep your hair under control. If you have a child born with naturally curly hair and you have always had straight hair, you need some quick tips for curly hair care to avoid hurting your child.

The first thing to look at is curly hair care versus straight hair care. Don’t you remember those old movies with some heroine slowly brushing her hair a hundred strokes, and as a young teenager you decided to try that. What you got with that little experiment in curly hair care was a hair explosion that looked something like Bozo the Clown was your stylist. Curly hair care means a minimum of brushing and with a wide-toothed comb.

Since you already know that curly hair get tangled easily and it hurts to clear out the tangles, here is an idea that can help. First, use hair products for curly hair, shampoo, conditioner and detangler. Don’t detangle your hair dry. So while in the shower, shampoo, and condition your curly hair and consider a leave in conditioner. Place the detangler in your hair and then, using your fingers detangle your hair, them move to a wide-toothed comb. Once its detangled get out of the shower and try to keep your hair from re-tangling. Blot it with a towel, don’t rub it and don’t blow dry it.

Don’t Be Fooled by Products Not Formulated For Curly Hair Care

Use hair products for curly hair whenever possible, is another idea that can minimize your pain and your frustration. Curly hair is actually physically different that straight hair and you want to take all the advantages you can get with curly hair care. Most of the products include moisturizers, because, as a rule, curly hair is drier than straight hair. Not all companies reformulate their products for curly hair, so be careful in your choices. Try the products in smaller size containers before you spend too much money for a product that doesn’t work. Their a mousses, hair gels and de-frizzing curly hair care products that will help manage curly hair and keep it beautiful. Find the products that work for you.
