Everyone with curly tresses has undoubtedly been called lucky for having such beautiful hair at least once.
Although you may not believe this to be true given the trying nature of curly hair, your locks will reward you if you look after them right. Keep scrolling to get the A-Z on curls from Matthieu Séguier, a French hairstylist working with Kérastase, so that you can stop being defeated by the nature of your hair and embrace its natural beauty instead.
It’s true that curls can be temperamental, frizzy and unpredictable, but they can also be elegant, voluminous and defined—if you know how to treat their unique composition. The reason for the difficult maintenance of curly hair is its shape. Curly tresses are also often very dry, adding to this predicament. As a result, curly hair requires a tailored regimen.
“A beautiful curl is one that is well-defined, keeps its shape and looks healthy,” Séguier says.
To obtain this desired curl, Séguier strongly recommends using a mask adapted to curly hair after shampooing. It will provide the intense level of hydration and nutrition that your curls are in need of. For example, Kérastase Discipline Maskeratine provides fluidity, shine, and anti-frizz properties.
Expert tip: “You have untangle your curly hair using a mask, do not comb it,” Séguier says. “Otherwise you will risk breaking your hair and causing frizz.”
Curly hair comes in two forms: either it is voluminous and difficult to tame, or it’s too flat and you struggle to boost it.
“However, if you do go to bed with your hair wet, make sure you place your curls above your head on the pillow,” Séguier explains. “Your curls will dry in their original shape, giving you better control the next morning.”
“It’s better to do this in the morning rather than when you go to bed,” Séguier says. “When you sleep on your curls, they are flat the next day.”
You’ll get more skilled at this routine as time goes on. There’s nothing more satisfying than successfully wrangling your curls into a beautiful, bouncy style on a daily basis.
