Living with curly hair can be a real pain if you don’t know how to care for it. While this hair type has a lot of body and volume, it’s prone to frizz, and can change depending on the climate you’re in. With the right products specific to this hair type, however, you can work a whole lot of magic.

Keep Hair Moisturised

Maintaining proper moisture is important for all hair types, but type 4 hair is even more susceptible to damage if it lacks moisture. A moisturising mask like the Mizane Supreme Oil Satin Crème Moisturizing Mask is a great step in treating dry, brittle hair. It uses jojoba and sesame oils to smooth and soften curls while adding a luminous shine.

A Time Saver

If you don’t have the time (or the desire) to spend hours doing your hair, and when going to the salon isn’t an option, a leave-in conditioner is a great alternative! Not only does it define your curls, it fights dryness, prevents breakage and supports healthy growth. We recommend exceptionally versatile Mizani 25 Miracle Milk, a multipurpose conditioner that moistures and protects your strands, making them more flexible and stronger.

Scale it Down

Healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp. It’s normal to experience flaking, scaling and itching on the scalp – it’s how you care for it that matters. You’ll need to invest in a shampoo that deeply cleanses the scalp and hair, like Mizani Scalp Care Shampoo, which eliminates bacteria and dead skin cells with its creamy formula. With soothing and calming properties, this shampoo will leave your hair feeling clean and sleek.

Define the Curl

Type 4 hair tends to have a smaller curl diameter, more kinky texture, lots of shrinkage and a variety of curl types on one head – so it requires a product with ingredients to smooth and define curls, giving them hold so that they’ll last. True Textures® Curl Define Pudding from Mizani is great for achieving this. With more moisture, absorption, discipline and hold, it provides a great shine and long-lasting style.

It’s worth paying a stylist a visit when it comes to getting the most out of your type 4 curly hair. They’ll be able to recommend a variety of products best suited for your hair and educate you on the best ways to take care of your locks.

For some people, hair brushing is a therapeutic routine that brings it much joy. For others, it’s a real chore! No matter which one you are, if there’s ever a clump of hair left on your hairbrush after grooming, or you find it particularly difficult to manage, it may not necessarily be your hair that’s the problem, but rather your hairbrush.
