Sydney Tamiia’s hair looks gorgeous in this picture. Considering her hair is so long, I’m amazed at how she’s able to keep her hair curly. Sometimes as curly hair gets longer, it begins to lose its volume, vibrancy and curls.
I have 5 tips that will keep your curls lookin’ fresh & luscious:
1. Use Mane n Tail Shampoo & Conditioner. You’ll be surprised at how quickly your hair becomes stronger and your curls more defined. I am so in love with mane n tail because my hair is now longer, stronger and more curly, even during the cold season.
3. Dye your locks as little as possible. I’ve realized that sometimes my hair needs a breather from hair dyes because it really is drying. What your curls need are moisture, moisture, moisture… so give your hair that opportunity. If you do decide to dye, make sure no peroxide is added in the ingredients. Also look that it includes creme to protect your hair before and after you dye like L’oreal Paris Excellence Creme box dye.
4. Learn what products work best for your curls. For me, after I wash my hair I use a detangling spray from Pantene Pro-V and then I style with Garnier Fructis leave-in cream. My curls look full and not cakey. Experiment with products to see what works for you. Some of us need more moisture than others.
5. Zinc is the secret ingredient for healthy hair. And healthy hair = luscious curls. All you need is 50 mg a day and you’ll notice improvements within 2-3 weeks. Some people say you shouldn’t take it everyday and they’re right… I would go for a daily vitamin and take zinc every 3 days. It works perfectly!
