Sayonara, straighteners. For the past few years, the masses have started to embrace texture and natural curls, and this is definitely a trend we can get behind. Along with cargo pants, crop tops, and clogs, big and beautiful 90s curls are back. Not sure how to rock your natural volume and texture (without the frizz, of course)? Try these tips and tactics.
Cut back on washes
If you’ve got greasy hair, it can be tempting to shampoo more often, but this can actually do more harm than good. Stripping your hair of its natural oils causes it to produce even more oil. To create the curls you crave, you need those natural oils to help your locks clump together.
Use a comb
Ditch your brush and grab the Wide Tooth Dae Comb. Unlike a brush, these combs don’t disrupt the curl pattern, instead, they keep sections of hair together, making it all the more likely to dry that way.
Dry hair = damage, split ends, and frizz. Bring the moisture (and curls) back with a deep conditioner—it’s designed to quench dry hair for shine, definition, and shape. Grab a bottle of the Dae Deep Conditioning Treatment and add it to your weekly routine to bring moisture back to over-processed hair.
Avoid heat tools
As we discussed, dry hair hinders definition. Hot tools can dry and damage your hair, so it’s important to use them sparingly, and when you do, make sure to protect your locks with a leave-in conditioner and heat protector. The Cactus Flower Leave-In Conditioner repairs damage, enhances shine, and prevents breakage all while providing heat protection up to 450 degrees.
Keep frizz in check
Dry your hair with a t-shirt instead of a towel. This fabric is more gentle and will help your hair hold a natural curl. Once dried (or damp), bring the definition back into your curls with the Prickly Pear Hair Oil. This secret weapon prevents breakage for a smooth, frizz-free finish.
