How to Enhance Your Natural Curls

Everyone wants to learn how to enhance natural curls but….do you know that it takes more than just a great product to make it happen? Tackling this issue in my new Textured Talk series where I’m breaking down exactly what you need to know to get popping curls by the end of this year. And of course, limiting heat is one of them! Duh! Still going strong with the #noheatchallenge2016 !  Also, don’t forget to like and subscribe.

Feel free to leave a comment if there’s additional topics you are burning to get the answer to and I will include them in an upcoming Textured Talk video series.  Here’s a recap of what I talked about in the above!

1. Cut All Dead Ends

Don’t hold on to useless or heat damaged ends. There’s really no point and it will drive you crazy towards your journey to curly hair.

2. Enhance Your Elasticity

Get those curls to twist and twirl from root to tip! Don’t forget to add a little protein to your regimen for healthy, strong curls.

3. Use Products that are PH Balanced

This is to ensure your hair is in an optimal state at all times and you are maintaining a nicely closed hair cuticle to retain and lock in moisture.

4. Use Heat Sparingly

Seems to be a no-brainer, but ease up on the heat styling for a while if you truly want to see the full potential of your natural curls.

      Hi! Avoid heat for a while and over-manipulation, which is over styling and twisting that area. Also, make sure you are deep conditioning and moisturizing regulary. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
