Articles about Curly Hair
Is your hair starting to look like first thing in the morning before your first cup of coffee you have stuck your fingers in a power socket? yes you know what I am talking about, the most horrible, most dreaded, most deplorable frizzy hair!
The causes of frizzy hair are:
- Lack of essential oils in the hair
- Lack of moisture in the hair
- Lack of protein in the hair
- Long hair, namely any hair that has been around for a long time passing the neck line.
Great Products to Combat Frizzy Hair
Following is a review of some lesser known hair products that can help combat frizzy hair. It is important to not add heavier products to frizzy hair like gel or mouse, instead stick to serums and mists. Always look for products specifically designed for anti-frizz or dry brittle hair.
Kerastase Oleo Relax Serum
This is part of the Kerastase Oleo Relax range. The Oleo relax range is designed to help fix the problem of dry, frizzy, thick hair and the serum is their number one fighter of frizz. After using this product your hair will feel silky and soft and you will be able to pass a comb or brush through it easily. These products do not come cheap at all, but they are totally worth it. The bottle goes a long way as you only need to use a couple of drops in your hair after every wash. This product is great for any type of hair, especially good for those girls out there with long thick curly hair.
Alberto VO5 Miracle Mist
Great product for untangling frizzy hair after it has been washed. It helps prevent breakage, use this before drying with a hair dryer or using a flat straightening iron. It helps tame frizzy hair and is better for those who will straighten the hair. If you just spray it on and leave it you probably will not find that it removes the frizz completely. This product has quite a strong fragrance.
Terax Miele Shampoo
This product is very hydrating for dry, brittle, frizzy hair. At the very least it won’t further dry out your hair. This product does not have a very strong smell, it is quite pleasant and it helps leave your hair feeling soft. It is more on the expensive side but the bottle contains a generous amount and will last a long time
Curly hair styles create a sense of charm and youth for those who know how to wear it well. It is important to realize that not all haircuts are great for those with curly hair and straight blunt cuts will create a bulbous mushroom effect as will hair that is cut too short. i think many of us with the curly hair have gone through this in our early teens (looking back at high school photos for me is not always a pleasurable experience, mushroom head anyone?)
To have your natural curly hair looking shiny, glorious and up to date it is best to wear your curly hair from medium length to long and get long layers cut into the hair. When you go to the hairstylist be weary of hairdressers that send you straight to the washing basin before observing your hair and the natural directions your curls take. The directions of your curls must be taken into consideration before being able to cut the right layers into your hair.

Layers in your hair can be used to balance out very thin or very thick hair, giving it a more textured, shapely look with more volume and movement.
Ask for long graduated layers that blend effortlessly into a sweeping fringe with flicked out ends and a nice side parting. Alternatively a nice blunt fringe (bang) and middle part can also work wonders with this hairstyle.
Layers are great for any hair length from short to very long hair; it helps break the monotony of very long hair, giving it movement. It is great for those with curly hair as it helps give bounce to the curls and a great shape. It is equally as good a look for straight hairstyles!
