Below are some curly hair conditioners and tips you can use at home to help moisturize your curls.
Give your curls a hot oil treatment every 2-3 weeks to add moisture to the hair.
It is especially necessary to do this during the colder months where hair can become dry and brittle. Counter it with a hot oil treatment.
The heat opens up the inner cortex and penetrates the hair shaft. You can find this at your local drug store. A good hot oil treatment is Alberto VO5 Hot oil treatment. Each tube is 14 ml. It claims that if used regularly, it will lead to 55% stronger hair.
Using a heat cap is an excellent way to allow the treatment to penetrate into the hair shaft. A good one is the Hairware Portable Dryer Bonnet that is easy to use and very effective.
Get regular trims every 8 weeks to rid your curls of unsightly, stringy ends.
Ensure that you visit a stylist that knows how to cut and style curly hair.
Add a touch of essential oils like avocado, coconut, jojoba or olive oil to your hair.
This can be a great conditioning regime to do prior to shampooing the hair. Place any of the above mentioned oils into the hair and place the hair in a bun for about 20 minutes. You can even wrap your hair under a plastic cap covered by a heat cap for added conditioning. You’ll find that your curls will be more revived and manageable.
