Short Hair Style – Curly Hair Styles

Anyone who thinks that curly hair styles means carefree hair style probably wears a wig. Fortunately, curly hair are plentiful and easy to master once you understand the basics of curly hair management.

Your Natural Hair Pattern

Styles for natural curly hair should always complement your hair’s unique curl pattern. Not everyone knows how to “read” that pattern and the results could be disastrous.

Layered hair cuts are one of the most suitable haircuts for short to medium length soft curly hair. It is easier to maintain and give your curls a good structure.

Excessive hair weight is a curl’s worst enemy. When your hair gets too long and heavy it tends to pull down and straighten your curls. Visit your stylist at least every six weeks. If you have thick curly hair, or your hair grows quickly, then every four to five weeks might be better for you.

The Right Hairdresser

The most important thing to know is that not all hair stylistsunderstand the subtle nuances of cutting naturally curly hair. If you are searching for a new hair stylist, don’t be afraid to call and ask if they have a curly hair stylist or specialist on their staff. If they say no, or act like you just asked the dumbest question that they have ever heard, hang up and move on.

Resist the temptation to wash your hair every day. It’s fine to rinse it daily but curly hair should be shampooed once or twice per week if possible (This fact depends on your curls type, shampoo and its PH value). That’s because curly hair is the result of the way that proteins in you hair called sulfides bonds (disulfide bonds) and harsh shampoo can break those bonds, so if you like to shampoo your hair regularly then use extra-mild or natural shampoo or your beautiful curls might become dry and also straighten a bit as a result. Use conditioning treatment after each wash.

Let your hair dry naturally if you have the time. If you are going to use a blow dryer then use a diffuser so your curls don’t get packed down too tight.

Protect your hair in direct sun, wind or when driving in an opne car with hat and rinse your hair after swimming.
