We know many curly girls suffer from dry hair. With all the products we use on a daily basis, it’s hard not stress out our locks. Here are five easy tips to squeeze into your daily routine to help heal dry hair.

  • 1. Rinse with cold water. As much as you love your steamy showers, super hot temps can fry your hair. Cold water seals in the moisture you need.

  • 2. Let loose while sleeping. Remove all elastics, clips, bobby pins, etc. Let your curls be free!
  • 3. Take a break from heat tools. Give your hair a day off every now and then from the curling iron, blow dryer and flat iron.
  • 4. Deep condition. This is no joke—deep condition as much as possible. You will truly see a difference in your hair’s health factor.
  • 5. Work with second day hair. Washing your hair every day will really dry out your curls. Instead, discover how to work with second-day hair. Maybe it’s wearing a headband. What about half-up, half-down? Or perhaps using a curl revitalizing spray. Figure out what works for you, on a night when you don’t have a hot date, and you’ll be much happier with your curls.
