How to Calm Crazy Waves and Unruly Curls

For those of us with wavy, curly hair and all curl shapes and textures it may seem like an endless battle to find ways to tame that mane.

Some may turn to relaxers, weekly blowouts or extensions.

Others just want to master their natural hair in whatever mood it seems to be in.

Here are some tips on how to calm crazy waves and unruly curls to help you get a handle on your curls making the absolute most of your natural hair.

Wavy hair is straight and flat on top then waves start in the middle with tighter curls at the back.

It’s quite common for several different textures to exist on the same head of hair.
These inconsistencies can cause the hair to look uneven, and are most apparent once the hair has dried.
 To balance the look of curly and wavy hair, try using a combination of mousse like John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Styling Foam on the straighter areas, and then a balm like Carols Daughter® Hair Balm for added stretch and control in the tighter areas.
The goal here is to keep hair shiny, touchable, and soft.

Curly Hair gets Frizzy at the Roots throughout the Day.

The key to eliminating frizz due to humidity is to make sure that the hair is thoroughly conditioned before styling products are applied.
For this instance try using a really good Moisturizing Conditioner, and to finish the style use a Shine Mist Spray, this helps to hydrate and stabilize the hair cuticle, making it less prone to frizz.
Thirsty hair will “drink up” moisture in the air if it’s not hydrated.


Will wearing my Curly Hair back into a Messy Bun or Ponytail Damage my Hair? 

Too much tension being applied to scalp for an extended period of time, can cause an irreversible thinning of the hair and usually occurs due to braids, extensions, and tight ponytails.
It’s important to avoid hairstyles that place constant pressure on the hair, particularly in the temple and nape areas.
Ponytails and buns should be taken down at night, and tight accessories, like headbands should be worn less frequently. 
 Use these styles in moderation and you should be fine. 

What are Some Ingredients to Avoid for Curly Hair? 

Heavy products that aren’t water soluble or are Petroleum-based can coat the hair shaft, disrupting the hair’s ability to retain moisture causing dryness.
This dryness may go undetected, because the hair is covered in product but the underlying dehydration causes hair to be brittle.
Using cream-based products that shampoo out easily will allow the hair to “breathe.”
