wavy hair care tips

Women with curly or wavy hair have so many issues to address that it needs a comprehensive hair guide. Be it forgetting to section hair while applying styling products or using a regular towel to dry the hair out, curly hair is prone to several daily care-related problems. Combing wet hair can even lead to hair fall, which requires proper hair loss treatment. Here is a detailed guide on how to care for wavy or curly hair.

Unbeatable curly hair care rules

  1. No matter how curly or wavy your hair is, these basic hair care rules can help you keep it textured and healthy.
  2. Keep your hair moisturized at all times, using leave-in conditioners or a trichologist-approved hydrating product, like the ADV Hydration Cream.
  3. While sleeping, use a satin case for your pillow.
  4. Use products with herb extracts and natural ingredients.
  5. Detangle regularly with a wide-toothed comb and a detangling spray.
  6. Resist the urge to keep touching your hair, as it causes frizz.
  7. Go for a hair spa every once in a while for deep conditioning.
  8. Choose a stylist after conducting proper research. Curly hair needs stylists that specialize in wavy/curly hair.
  9. Limit exposure to heat-based tools, as they can zap out moisture from the scalp and hair.
  10. If you are suffering from hair fall, seek hair loss treatment as soon as possible.

Use essential products

People with wavy/curly hair need to use some essential products to keep hair smoother and frizz-free. The first is coconut oil, which helps to keep the hair moisturized, combat frizz, and also works as a protective sealant. You should also use a hydrating conditioner.

A serum comes handy when styling, but argan oil provides natural protection. The ADV Argan Oil is an award winning product from PHS Hairscience. It is free of parabens, mineral oil, or animal content that effectively smoothens out frizz.

Trimming rules

Split-ends and lifeless hair are a constant problem with curly hair. Regular trims can help you avoid these problems. Before going to the stylist, do a hot oil treatment for the hair before shampooing. This makes detangling easy and provides nutrition to the scalp.

Try co-shampooing

Popularly known as the 'no-poo' method, co-washing refers to washing hair without using a shampoo. It is a tried-and-tested formula to keep curly hair hydrated. However, those with oily hair must use a shampoo. The ADV Purifying Scalp Cleanser not only helps cleanse the scalp, but keeps the moisture intact.

Caring for permed hair

Hair care for permed hair is different from caring for natural curls. Here is how to do it:

  1. Wait for at least 48 hours to wash your hair after a perm. Your hair will be fragile and is still adjusting to the chemicals used.
  2. Use shampoos and conditioners designed for chemically-treated hair.
  3. Stylists are often wary of washing permed hair, but it can be safely done twice a week.
  4. Moisturizing permed hair is important. Invest in a good conditioner and get hair spa on a monthly basis.
  5. Drying with a towel can ruin your curls. Use an old t-shirt to dab and dry them naturally. Avoid using a blow dryer or vigorous towel drying.
