At NaturallyCurly, we know that conditioning is one of the most important steps in your hair care process. Type 3 curls need a lot of conditioner, especially in the hot and humid summer months! Be sure to protect your hair from the sun, salt and chlorine by following these tips:

  1. Be generous. Curlies need more conditioner, so it’s important that you’re not stingy! Smooth your conditioner through the length of your hair in a downward motion.
  2. Detangle. Detangling is easiest when your hair is saturated with conditioner. Try using a wide-toothed comb or denman brush while you’re in the shower. It’s the last point in your routine where you will need to run a comb through your hair.
  3. Leave it in. If your hair needs some extra moisture to combat frizz, try leaving a little bit of conditioner in the ends of your hair.
