L’Oreal Paris EverPure Smooth Shampoo, $7; Drugstore.com
Avoid sulfates in your shampoos. Sulfates are foaming detergents that are found in many commercial shampoos and dish detergents that can be drying for curly hair. Opt for sulfate-free shampoos, such as L’Oreal’s EverPure Smooth shampoo for smooth, hydrated curls.
Tidy: Detangling Comb, $8; Sephora
Ditch the brush. Use a comb instead. Brushing can cause breakage to your hair. Instead, opt for finger-combing or a wide-toothed comb.
DevaCurl DevaFuser Attachment, $29; Amazon
Use a Diffuser. If you need to dry your hair, make sure to use a diffuser, which minimizes frizz by evenly distributing the heat.
Moroccanoil Frizz Control, $33.60; Moroccanoil
Seal the cuticle. Frizz serum seals the cuticle of each hair so humidity can’t get in. You only need a tiny dime-sized portion of serum to do the trick.
Betty Dain White Satin Pillowcase, $14; Salon Guys
Sleep on Satin. A satin sleep cap or pillowcase will protect your curls all night long from getting frizzy or flat. An extra bonus? Sleeping on satin pillowcases prevents wrinkles!
Use a T-shirt. Drying your hair with a T-Shirt will greatly reduce frizz and breakage after washing. Since shirts aren’t as absorbent, gently squeeze your hair out before drying but make sure never to twist it.
