GET TEXTURE FOR THAT CURLY HAIRSTYLE
Have you ever wanted your natural curls to look textured without having to go to the trouble of using a hair curler? Your prayers have been answered. NFuzion has created the Zero Frizz Curl Definer ($18.95) specifically for curly hairstyles. We have tested it and can vouch that it actually does a great job at creating defined curls. It contains ginseng, rosemary and wheat protein to create shine and actually strengthens the hair strand. So if you've been blessed with curly hair, you know this is one of our biggest challenges!
CURLY HAIR IS MORE FRAGILE
This tip may seem too simple to make a difference but trust us, it works. Comb your hair from bottom to top. If you start from the top and work your way down you will create unnecessary knots, which people with curly hair are extra susceptible to getting. Also, use a wide toothed comb because a brush us curly haired people have extra fragile strands and are more susceptible to breakage.
DON'T LET YOUR CURLY HAIRSTYLE TURN INTO A FUZZY MESS
You get out of the shower and want to stop your hair from drying into a fuzz ball. NFuzion Sculpting Glaze ($18.95) helps stop your curls from matting because it grips the hair and once it dries will give a semi-wet and textured look. You can still blow dry with this product if you'd like to, but we do recommend using a diffuser nozzle on the end of your blow dryer. The other option is to apply this product to your curly hair and then just let your hair dry naturally to give a textured look. Some of our favourite curly hair styles using this glaze are spiralled curls and corkscrew curls, but really it is good for anybody who just wants to emphasise their natural curls.
THE PINEAPPLE TRICK
Okay so may seem a little left of field but this technique is a lifesaver. The results of this technique will depend on how curly your locks are but all you have to do is put your hair into a ponytail. Gently gather it at the highest point of your head and leave it overnight. The name comes from the ponytail resembling a pineapple and the idea is that in the morning you will have protected the curl pattern while adding volume to whichever curly hairstyle you choose.
GET A CURLY HAIRSTYLE THAT LOOKS LIKE YOU'VE BEEN AT THE BEACH
For those of you who don't have super curly hair, this is the product for you. Edgy Haircare's Surfin Styler ($18.95) will give a wind-styled, beach look by giving volume, body and adding texture. This amazing little spray will also protect your locks from the harsh Australian UV rays as well as from potential heat damage if you decide to use a hair curler.
So there you have it, the best ways to get defined, beautiful and healthy looking curly hair.
