If you’re finding your hair unmanageable and don’t know where to start, we’ve done the hard work for you; get your bearings with the curly hair tips below.

Cleanse thoroughly.

It’s important that you cleanse your hair before adding anything else to make sure that your hair is in excellent condition to be styled.

“I recommend an adapted product like Mizani Puriphying Intense Cleansing Shampoo,” Gonzales says. “This shampoo rids your hair of any sebum, dirt, and grime, creating the ideal base to let the following nourishing products to work well."

Follow up with the basics.

After cleansing your hair correctly, your next step swapping in a quality shampoo and conditioner for curly hair, such as Mizani Moisture Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner, for fresh hair and beautiful results.

Add nourishment.

Gonzales advises applying a mask or leave-in formula such as Mizani 25 Miracle Milk after you’ve washed and conditioned your hair.

“Frizzy hair is usually incredibly dry, which can add to its brittleness," she says.

A leave-in product like this can be significantly more intensive, providing your hair with many benefits.

Style away.

Your next step can be adding your styling products while your hair is still damp to help create the perfect curl and keep your hair in shape while minimizing dreaded frizz. Keep your curls bespoke with Mizani Curl Define Hair Pudding for curls that check all the right boxes.

Add protection.

If you are going to use heat to finish off your look, now’s the time to add a heat protection product. Try Mizani Thermastrength Heat Protecting Serum, a must-have product to look after your curls when things heat up.

Get the right cut.

The right cut makes all the difference. Longer hair can weigh down your curls. If you’re looking for coils that are less tight, it might be worth growing out your hair a bit to a medium length. For the ultimate curl beauty, it’s essential that your hair is in a healthy condition. Make sure you go for regular trims to keep it in the right shape.

Comb carefully.

Using a brush on your curly hair can damage and break it, so opt for a wide tooth comb when it comes to looking after your curls. Even better, try to comb your hair when it’s wet. Combing it while dry can alter the curl shape and result in a frizzy mess—no thanks!

Armed with these hair care tips, you’ll be running rings around everyone with your curls!
