Curly Hair: The Worst Advice We’ve Ever Heard About Beauty

Curly hair is stunning, but it’s also notoriously finicky. One wrong move, and you’ll wind up with a head of unmanageable frizz. Unfortunately, many well-meaning stylists give their curly-haired clients horrendous hair care advice. Other curly-haired gals find awful advice online. We’re here to set the record straight. The next time you hear one of these terrible pieces of advice, you’ll know that you’re dealing with a curly hair novice:

Wash Your Hair Daily

 

Women with oily, straight hair often require daily washing, but for nearly everybody else, every other day is more than enough. Frequent washing and excessive use of shampoo will quickly strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it prone to frizz. If you absolutely have to wash your hair in between recommended washes, try water washing, which involves massaging your wet hair and scalp without using shampoo or conditioner.

Brush Your Curls While Dry

 

Nothing will turn an otherwise lovely head of curly hair into a big ball of frizz faster than a hairbrush — especially if it’s used while your hair is dry. Also terrible for curly hair? Fine-toothed combs. If you have to get snarls out, use a wide-toothed comb and work very carefully from the bottom up.

Use a Razor For Haircuts

 

Stay far, far away from stylists who insist on using razor cuts or otherwise thinning out your naturally voluminous hair. Razor cuts can cause a lot of damage, especially if performed on dry hair. A good stylist can make a razor cut work, but in most cases, it’s better to be safe than sorry. A proper hair care routine can transform your head of frizz into beautiful, eye-catching curls. Be confident in your natural beauty and rock those curls!
