Curly hair care: how to make the most of your curly locks with these 3 easy tips

People with straight hair often don’t realise that, however gorgeous a full head of curls may look, it can be a real challenge to look after. Here are a few of the most common concerns about how to make the most of *curly hair*, with some expert *curly hair tips*. 

The frisson of frizz
The fact is that *curly hair* can frizz up easily, often because it’s dry and lacking the nourishment it needs. Caring for your curly hair starts with using the right shampoo. You need a gentle and deeply nourishing formula like Garnier Ultra Doux Shampoo with Avocado Oil and Shea Butter. This velvety formula, provides the kind of care that you need to moisturise and tame flyaway or *frizzy hair*. 

The best type of conditioner for curly hair
The next step, of course, is conditioner. Remember, your curly hair needs more conditioning than other types of hair - but you should still make sure to concentrate your hair conditioner on the tips and lengths to avoid any danger of a greasy scalp. Use your fingers or a comb to ensure the product is applied evenly, and give it time to work before you rinse it off. These days there’s a whole new approach to conditioning, with multi-purpose formulas like Garnier Ultra Doux Nourishing Banana Hair Food. You can use this yummy-smelling, vitamin-rich product as a pre-wash, a traditional conditioner, a deep-moisturising and nourishing mask for a weekly pampering session, or even as a leave-in conditioner to keep your curls glossy all day long. 

How to detangle and style curly hair
By using the right type of conditioner for your curly hair, you’ve already taken the first step to detangling effectively. The next simple rule is to use a wide-toothed comb rather than a brush, and never brush dry curls unless you want to be saying hello to a head full of frizz all over again. When it comes to drying, it’s best to avoid blow drying in favour of using a specialised product to style your curls while they’re still damp and then letting your hair dry naturally. The best help you can get is a contouring cream made especially for the job. Garnier Ultra Doux Avocado Oil and Shea Butter Leave-in Cream can be applied to still-damp hair, after which you can arrange your curls exactly how you want them and let the leave-in cream do the rest. It nourishes curly hair for long-lasting moisture and leaves your locks stronger, shinier and softer, along with keeping your curls nicely defined. 

Armed with these helpful tips, you’ll be ready to embrace your curly head of hair in no time at all!
