HOW TO TAKE CARE OF CURLY HAIR
All curls are unique. It might take a little experimentation to find the right curly hair care products that are right for you, and the best routine to keep your curls looking healthy and defined. Here, we’ll help you discover more about what your curls are craving, because we love your best hair days almost as much as you do.
Identify your curl pattern
Shampoo your curly hair
Wash day for Type 2 curls might look very different than wash day for Type 4 curls. With Type 2, natural oils move more frequently through your hair, so you may need to wash more often to keep it looking its best. With Type 4, oils move through your hair more slowly, so you can go more days without needing to wash. If your hair’s feeling too oily before wash day, try shortening your time between washes. If it’s still feeling moisturized and not greasy, maybe you can go another day before washing. It’s all about what works for you!
Condition your curly hair
Did you know that certain conditioners have a hard time staying on the curvy parts of the hair? The curlier the hair, the harder conditioners must work to deliver the same benefits, which is one of the reasons why type 4C hair needs a richer conditioner than 2A. Because of this, Aussie has different collections for waves, curls, and coils.
Styling your curly hair
Understanding the different types of stylers can help you perfect your curly hair routine. While leave-in conditioners and curl creams are good for definition, mousse, gels, and jellies are good for hold. Experiment and mix-and-match with different products and combos to find the stylers that work best for you.
