The Curly Hair Mistakes You Could Be Making Every Day
Oudiad – Co-Creator of Sunsilk Expert Obedient Curls Range
Every curly haired girl is in search of one thing: perfect frizz-free curls. Serums, oils, hair dryers, rollers, mousses and hair sprays fill dressing tables but often fail to deliver. Are we doing something wrong? Thankfully Sunsilk curl expert and co-creator, Ouidad, has the lowdown on the biggest mistakes you can make for curly hair and how to avoid them. Now our curly hair can behave the way we want it to behave!
1. Brushing and combing
This is one of the biggest mistakes for curls as it separates them, making them less defined and frizzy. If you comb through your conditioner before rinsing when wet, there should be no need to brush hair once dry.
2. Regular blow outs
The blow dry may be the answer for straight and flat hair but is it a big no no for curls. Blow-drying makes your hair more flyaway and frizzy so it’s best to let your hair dry naturally. If you do need to dry hair in a hurry, use a cold setting and twist strands around your fingers as you dry.
3. Consistent cleansing
Try not to wash waves more than 3 times a week. Your hair produces natural oils that will help smooth curls but if washed every day, these natural oils will be eradicated. Ouidad recommends shampooing twice a week with Sunsilk’s Expert Obedient Curls Shampoo.
4. Be kind to your locks
We are often told a good massage does wonders for your hair whilst shampooing – not for curls. Over doing it causes the hair to become matted and difficult to manage. Curls need gentle care so lather with caution!
5. Slicking up
Many hair oils and waxes promise fuzz free smooth results. Nevertheless, Ouidad warns that they can make hair fluffy and flyaway. For non-frizzy curls on the go, try Sunsilk’s Expert Obedient Curls Leave On Cream, co-created by the curl queen herself.
