Hair 101: Maintaining Curly Q's

Rita Ora
Rita Ora along with other curly haired stars such as Taylor Swift have learned how to control and manage curly manes. I believe in wearing your natural hair texture out a least 50% of the time because whats naturally given to you usually looks best. A good bit of the world population has curly hair wether its loosely coils, lots of spirals, or a complete frizz ball. No matter what type of curly hair you have there are a few tips on how to manage, control, and keep your hair looking healthy and fabulous.
  1. Get a trim every 6 weeks! Curly hair especially needs to be trimmed every 6 weeks because the ends get dry and brittle faster and tend to break off. Scraggly ends are not attractive.
  2. Condition and Moisturize! Be sure to deep condition your curly hair at least twice a month to retain moisture in the hair. Whenever you wash and condition leave a very small amount of conditioner in the hair to stay.
  3. Never towel dry! Never wrap a towel around your hair after you wash and this tip is not just for curly hair. Rubbing a towel against wet hair is the first step to creating a major frizz ball of hair.
  4. Invest in a wide tooth comb! Don't even try brushing curly hair or attempting to comb through it with a small tooth comb. A brush will create frizziness and small comb will get stuck in the hair and do nothing to help detangle.
  5. Try out products specifically for curly hair! Lots of hair product brands are beginning to produce products made specifically for certain hair types which is a major plus for everyone. A product made for curly hair will ony help make your curls look even better.
The bottom line here is that the best thing for curly hair is to keep it moisturized and conditioned because curly hair can get so dry. Remember to get trims every 6 weeks, lay off the heat, and keep the hair detangled. Work your gorgeous curly hair chica!
