How To Care For And Control Type 5 Very Curly Hair
09 March 2018
While Type 5 very curly hair is unique, and the envy of a lot of women out there, it takes a lot of TLC to control the frizz and tangles
that come with it. The good news is that there’s so much you can do to get the best out of your curls, and all you
need is a little inspiration and the right products.
Despite what you’ve heard, the best way to wash and condition your hair (besides at a salon) is to keep your curls
pointing down. The more you fiddle, the more likely your hair is to frizz, so simply let the shower water run down the
length of your hair instead of washing it upside down.
Moisturising is key
Because of the evaporation that takes place while your hair is drying, your hair goes from soft, plump and supple to dry
and frizzy, which is why using an ultra-hydrating shampoo is important. Mizani’s Puriphying Intense Cleansing Shampoo
is an emollient-rich, acidic wash that conditions and smooths the cuticle while removing dirt. It provides an infusion
of moisture and protein that allows for flexible movement of the curls.
Divide and conquer
The best way to ensure that a product reaches every strand is to divide your hair into different sections. Use clips to
hold hair out of the way and start at the back of your head, working your way forward. This way, you’re able to apply
the product from the roots all the way to the ends with ease, working on one section at a time.
Strength in numbers
Because of all the twists and turns, very curly hair can be fragile and delicate, so it’s worth investing in a product
that strengthens your curls while working as a styling aid. Mizani True Textures
Curl Define Pudding was created specifically to encourage hair health and strength, along with greater manageability. It provides
nourishment and restores shine, leaving your curls feeling as good as new.
Apply when wet
When you begin styling your locks, make sure your hair is still wet. Don’t bother towel drying after you’ve
stepped out the shower, instead grab an old t-shirt to squeeze out any excess water. Apply your styling products to your
wet curls and use your fingers as a brush for a look that suits you.
