Curly hair has a mind all its own, and curly-haired women around the globe will agree. It is a challenging task to care for curly hair. It is a constant battle from fighting frizz to managing unmanageable ends and getting every hairstyling tool in your hair. We have some specialized solutions for curly hair issues that we will share with you.

The basics for curly-haired women

Curly-haired girls have a love/hate relationship with their hair. Your curly hair looks fantastic with its volume, curls, and oil-free look. However, you will be tempted to reach for the straightener only on the most important days because of the frizz, dryness, and stunted growth.

Although curly hair can sometimes be difficult and frustrating, we have the right approach to help you manage your curly mane. Let’s find out how to keep your hair in tip-top shape daily.

Curly hair: Common problems

FrizzThe dreaded “F” word is a daily nightmare. Your hair will become frizzy and unruly if there is even a hint of humidity. After every wash, apply a leave-in serum or conditioner to damp hair and brush gently to get the flyaways under control.

You can also use an old cotton t-shirt instead of a towel to dry your hair. Even the softest of towels can make your hair dry and frizzy. Don’t rub your hair. Wrap the t-shirt around your hair and let the water soak in.

We recommend that you replace your cotton pillowcase. Your hair can become frizzy from cotton pillowcases that absorb moisture. Silk pillowcases will help reduce friction, resulting in less curly hair.


Hair with curly curls can get tangled easily, so you need to take the time to think about it before you let it go. We are confident that you have broken your hairbrush at some point while brushing your hair. To avoid hair tangling in the shower, section your hair. To fix curly hair, you should brush your hair with a wide-toothed comb. Start at the bottom and work your way up. You won’t pull on or break your strands this way.


Are your hair and scalp as dry as your morning toast? The cuticles can become more open due to humidity. Use a gentle shampoo or conditioner free from harsh chemicals for curly hair, such as the Dove Beautiful Curls Sulphate-Free Shampoo and Conditioning Shampoo. This shampoo is specially formulated to condition and deep clean, dry hair. It contains natural moisturizing elements such as shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe. This helps to recover hair’s natural oils and locks in moisture to keep your curls shaped.

Use the conditioner on your scalp in a downward motion. Wash it after a few minutes. Due to the curly shaft and ends, concentrate on your scalp. Concentrate on your scalp when shampooing because this is where the oil and dirt are located.

Slower growth

Curly hair grows slower than straight hair. A hair oil massage before shampooing can provide proper nourishment for curly hair. Warm oil can be used to massage your scalp and stimulate hair growth.

To avoid length surprises, consider a dry haircut. A dry cut will let you know how your hair will look when it is done. This will prevent you from worrying about your hair getting too long.


Curly hair is porous and sensitive to humidity. This causes it to lose moisture quickly, resulting in dry, dull-looking hair. Deep condition your hair and moisturize it once a week with a hair mask. You can deep condition and hydrate your hair with a hair mask once per week if you don’t have the time.

Use a large amount of the creamy Dove Deep Moisture Miracle Hair Mask to moisturize damp hair. Wash it off every other week after five minutes. It contains nourishing ingredients such as glycerine and coconut oil that strengthen and repair hair. It’s free from drying chemicals such as dyes, sulphates, and parabens. This mask is great for dry hair because it reduces breakage. The hydrating mask reduces frizz and gives your hair a shiny look that will make it easier to style and maintain your curls.
