A lot of people with curly would love to have straight hair and people with straight hair envy those with curls: the volume the bounce the movement. I guess we always want what we don’t have.
With the right programme of care your curls will be kept in prime condition, full and bouncy and free of any frizz or tangles.
Looking after curly hair is very important and in most cases less is more.
The first step to having good curly hair is a good haircut. Someone that understands how to cut curly hair, understands the importance of shape and fullness. Curly hair should preferably be cut dry, as it can appear deceptively straight when it is wet.

This is my fabulous client Emma has got gorgeous natural curly hair. A mistake that people often make with curly hair is cutting the hair longer at the front. But with all hair, the shorter hair pushes the longer hair in that direction. So if your hair is shorter in front and longer in the back, the hair comes out of the face, which is what we want with curly hair like Emma’s. To really showcase the face, which then makes Emma’s gorgeous eyes pop. We’ve given her a shorter fringe, to the corner of her cheekbone and then it cascades down towards the back. We’ve done a full layer throughout, to make sure the hair is nice and light and ensure it curls up beautifully.

A soft curl enhancing spray or mist will provide moisture and prevent frizz. Always use a good quality product to be sure your hair won't be left feeling sticky, and looking dull and dry. Especially something to avoid if your hair is naturally on the drier side.
A final tip for when you're going out or have more time to spend on your hair, use a tong or straightener to add extra curl into your hair. Especially at the end of the day before you go out so you don’t have to wet your hair again.
Finish it off with a shine spray, which is always very handy and beneficial for curly hair. Alternatively, use a water spray bottle and lightly dampen the hair down, reapply your styling product of choice and diffuse or leave to dry naturally. A great product to use on curly hair is the Leonor Greyl, Algues Et Fleurs.
