Managing curly can be a challenging feat. It tends to get frizzy easily, resulting in unmanageable and unruly hair. Eliminating poof is important to ensure healthy and manageable hair. Here are few tips to help eliminate poof.
- Never use a dryer to dry your hair. If you must, make sure you use a protective serum to avoid frizz.
- Buy right styling and hair care products for your hair. Your hair stylist should be able to suggest suitable products to go with.
- Don’t shampoo your hair more than twice a week and consider using deep conditioner to tame your mane.
- Use mild shampoos without sodium lauryl or sodium laureth to tame poof and frizz. The drier your hair is, the more the poof. So stay away from harsh styling or cleansing products for best results.
- Never let down your hair when you go for a long ride! If it’s windy or sunny, remember to pull back your hair and wrap it using a cloth. You don’t want to let your hair fly when you ride, since it will increase poof and frizz.
- Give your hair a nourishing oil massage prior to shower. Most prefer warm oil for massage, though you could just warm the oil using your fingers! Gently apply the oil in circular motion and leave it for at least 30 minutes before showering. Olive oil, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil or even coconut oil should work fine.
- TRIM à You need to trim your hair from time to time, to get the desired length and avoid poof. When you trim your hair, you reduce frizz and poof. Make sure you to find a hairstylist that specializes in curly hair. This is a very important hair care routine, especially when you have unruly hair.
Trimming ensures your hair looks neat and even. Though you can trim at home, I recommend not to. Your hair stylist would do a better job. So consider visiting them for trimming, every now and then. I suggest doing your research to find a hair stylist that is certified in curly hair by Deva Curl.
- Never use thinning shears when you are trimming your hair. Thinning shears can trigger poof and frizz, so stay away from it at all costs.
It’s a good idea to consult a hair stylist to know more about your hair type, hair needs and what would be ideal for your hair. Hair salons exist for a purpose – helping you with hair styling and hair care. Much like how you consult a doctor when you have doubts or when you in pain, hair salons are for your hair! Make sure you identify a reliable hair stylist who will understand your needs and preferences and suggest solutions accordingly.
