Curly hair is often fragile and requires specific maintenance. Discover all our tips for top hair.
Wash them properly
Hair or curly wig tend to be dry, so it is advisable to wash them with a very hydrating shampoo, suitable for your type of hair. However, avoid washing your hair every day at the risk of drying out: two to three times a week is more than enough. Apply the shampoo only on the scalp (it will then be distributed over the lengths by water), massage gently and rinse. Dab your hair with a terry towel and allow it to air dry.
Tip: Crease your curls with your fingers when they are still wet to give them volume.
Hydrate them regularly
The secret to beautiful curls? Hydration! So remember to carry a nourishing mask or an oil bath (leave it on for a few hours or overnight for optimal effectiveness) once a week. You can also use a nourishing serum based on olive oil, almond, coconut or shea butter.
To detangle curly hair, leave aside the brush (which may break your lengths) and favor a comb with large teeth (wooden or horn). If knots resist, gently undo them by hand, applying a little detangler if necessary.
Tip: Tie your mane in a ponytail or a loose bun for sleeping. This will prevent it from being damaged by friction against the pillow.
Massage your scalp
The scalp massage stimulates circulation at the roots and keeps hair healthy and shiny. It will also be ideal for offering you relaxation breaks throughout the day.
