How to take care of your curls

Curly hair is and will be a trend throughout this year, you are already warned. In this article we show you how to take care of your curls. Gone are those curly hair without volume, and frizzy with heavy products that did not define the natural path of the hair.

A few days ago we answered the 10 most common questions with the curly method. Today, we delve into this method and adapt it to your day to day. The New Look salons in Barcelona teach us step by step how to take care of your curls so that they always look flawless and without frizz: from washing, through the importance of cutting to the styling process.

If you have curly or wavy hair, understanding its characteristics is the beginning for you to notice a sensational change. Because knowing it will make you enhance its virtues and control its limitations.

How to take care of your curls

STEP 1 – Washing

The curly hair care process begins even before you wash your hair. It is important, as Mariona Ferran, director of the New Look salons, tells us that there is no knot or tangle before washing it. Before doing it with a comb that is not suitable, use your fingers, but the Professional Titanium Comb for Large Curls with Top Handle is ideal for this.

When we wash curly hair, in all the steps we take, we will avoid promoting frizz with our gestures. Therefore, the temperature of the water when rinsing must not be too cold or too hot. Ideally, warm water.

We must avoid sulfates and silicones in the shampoo we use because curly hair is already dry, and we could exacerbate this problem.

STEP 2 – Haircut

The curly hair cut is something very feared by those who have suffered a bad experience. As Daniel Sánchez, director of New Look, reminds us, it is essential to go to a salon that understands curly hair:

Expert hands know how to prevent the volume from expanding to the side regardless of whether the curl you have is elastic or very relaxed

STEP 3 – Drying and styling

Finally, and before starting the styling phase, it is very important to moisten and protect the hair from heat with a thermoprotector. You can never skip this step no matter how your hair is, straight, wavy, curly …

A curl is prettier when it is defined, but what do we mean when we talk about defining curls? Curl definition is seen when hair is frizz-free, hydrated, shiny, and makes the curl last longer without losing its shape.

There are different techniques to define curly hair, but the best is to hydrate the hair to make it more beautiful, as explained by Joe Lucas, the artistic director of New Look. Curly Professional Styling Fluid controls curl through the hydrating agents of quinoa and orchid.

The curly method has as main objective that the curls look beautiful, natural and healthy. Extreme heat has been so abused in the past that this method claims to go to the other side, not to blow dry your hair. We all know that this is very nice on paper but that, in general, we cannot go outside with our hair completely wet, especially on cold days.

In New Look they give us the tips to remove moisture without damaging the curl with the right tools and with the power and adequate heat.

Finished with a hair end protector such as Silky Style.Me Professional Liquid Crystal Serum and a shine enhancer such as Glossy by Style.Me Professional Shine Spray, they will ensure the complete look because they combine care with the polished appearance.

Remember these three tips to care for curly hair:

  • 1. Go to professionals when you have to cut or do not know how to treat your hair.

  • 2. Listen to their advice for when you do your hair at home

  • 3. Use products with natural essential oils that are respectful of your hair and that ensure the health of your hair.
