As much as curls are extremely popular and sought after by girls with pin straight hair, having naturally curly hair isn’t as exciting as it may seem. Having curly hair, I understand the love-hate relationship that comes along with the coveted curls. As much as I appreciate having curls, there are days where all I want is for them to cooperate. This is especially true in the summer when curls are synonymous with frizz. It seems as though every day they want to do something different — which is the complete opposite of what I want them to do.
Luckily, there are products out there that will whip your curls into shape. You want to make sure you start off with shampoos and conditioners that are made for curly hair. Aveda and Bumble and bumble both have a great line of products made especially for curly hair. Creams and serums are also great for curls, as they can smooth out frizz and leave your hair shiny and soft. Leave-in conditioners are crucial for girls with curls. Since they dry out very easily, using a conditioning treatment once or twice a week restores any moisture lost due to heat damage.
