Naturally curly hair can be, at times, difficult to manage but with the right hair tools and hair styling products natural curls can be tamed.

Take Care - taking care of your curly hair is important as curly hair can tend to be more dry and coarse than straight hair. Using hair care products for curly hair is your best choice as they are formulated to help tame frizz, moisturize and give curly it’s must needed nourishment.

Soft and Shiny - soft, shiny curls are what’s hot, crunchy, hard curls, not! These days there are tons of great styling products for curly hair which help smooth, soften and shape curls without the crunch.

The Right Tools - using the right tools to help style curly hair is another important step. Use a diffuser with your hair dryer to help combat frizz, add volume and shape curls.

Cut it Out – the right haircut is probably the most important step in having great looking curls. Layers and textured hair can do wonders for curly hair. When choosing a hair stylist make sure to find one who has experience with natural curly hair!

Forget the Frizzies

One of the biggest complaints when it comes to styling hair, is the over processed look that can often be created after hair is subjected to a great deal of styling and product overload. We’ve all seen it, a beautiful young girl walking down the street with over processed, frizzy damaged hair. In fact, you may have suffered from a bad case of the frizzies yourself. But do you have to put up with this damage just because you want to style your hair everyday? The answer is no.

 It is not an automatic given that you need to trade the health of your hair for well styled hair. In fact, if you ask me, and many others, beautifully styled hair should look healthy, not over processed. So, how exactly do you achieve a balance of both? It’s really not very hard to have beautifully styled and healthy hair, but you do need to pay attention to a few things.

 The first thing you must do is evaluate the condition of you hair right now. Is it already damaged and frizzy? Do you already have a problem? If you do, it’s okay. All is not lost. You simply need to work a bit harder at getting your hair back up to a healthy state. Spend some time deep conditioning your hair with hot oil treatments. Be sure that you are not brushing your hair when it’s wet or pulling through tangles that will rip your hair. You might want to consider getting a trim to take care of the damaged, dry ends.

 One of the best investments that you can make for your hair and your overall style is purchasing quality hair tools. Quality hair tools will not only style your hair, they will improve the look of your hair as well. Choose a hair straightener with ceramic or titanium plates, and also look for the addition of tourmaline. Using tourmaline when you straighten your hair will infuse each hair with negative ions that actually close the cuticle, keeping your hair laying flat and looking smooth and beautiful. Not only will your hair look healthier, it will be healthier.

 You can also inject your hair with negative ions by using a tourmaline powered blow dryer. Using a tourmaline hair dryer will actually dry your hair up to 70% faster than a regular hair dryer which means that you do not have to expose your hair to heat for long periods of time, which also protects your hair preventing the frizzies.

 By choosing the right styling tools and spending a little bit of time treating your hair right, you do not have to sacrifice the health of your hair in order to style it. You can have both healthy and beautifully styled hair. So say good bye to the frizzies and hello to gorgeous healthy hair.
