Mario Talks: How to style your curly hair

Curly Cues

Women with curls are always asking me how to style their hair to eliminate the frizz factor and add shine.

It’s not just the styling; it’s how you wash it, condition it and dry it.

Here’s what works

  • Cleanse your scalp once or twice a week with sulfate-free cleanser.
  • Apply conditioner starting from ends to roots.
  • De-tangle with fingers or a wide tooth comb.
  • Rinse conditioner thoroughly from scalp. For extra moisture use a leave-in conditioner.
  • Flip head over and scrunch hair from ends to roots with a micro fiber towel; scrunch evenly with a gel specifically made for curls.
  • Let hair naturally air dry or diffuse with a low-speed, high-heat setting.

For extra lift, dry hair upside down, keeping the diffuser away from the curls. Let the curls dry completely; then, scrunch all over to create a softer look and feel. To tame frizz, add a humidity control product.

Now you’re ready to go where ever your curls take you!!

Products we recommend:

  • Shampoo and conditioner: Burt’s Bees, Kerastase, Kiehl’s, Profound Beauty
  • Gel: Profound Beauty Curl Glaze or Curl Cream
  • Humidity Control: Profound Beauty Tropical Dew

NOTE from snoety: We really love the Profound products!
