Curly Hair Do’s and Don’ts

We believe that natural curls are a blessing, but we also recognize that curly hair comes with its own set of unique care requirements. If you’re looking for tips to care for your curls, you’ve come to the right place! As Washington’s only curly hair expert, Rodi Salon has exactly what you need to enhance the look of your curls.  Read on for a list of must do’s (and don’ts!) to care for those gorgeous curls the rest of us only dream about. 

Do:

  • Always detangle your hair when it’s still wet, and preferably with your fingers while the conditioner is still in it for protective coating. This will help minimize breakage while you tame that mane after (or in!) the shower.
  • Shampoo is for your scalp! Don’t make the mistake of thinking you need to lather a ton of shampoo from roots to tips. Not so! Use only the amount of product necessary to cleanse your scalp and keep it there as much as possible. The detergents in shampoo can be very drying, and curly hair is dry enough all by itself. 
  • On the same note, conditioner is for your hair. Concentrate the conditioner on the length of your hair, away from your scalp. Your scalp creates all the moisture it needs, but the rest of your hair needs your help.
  • Moisture is your friend. Naturally curly hair is also naturally dry hair. Choose hair products that are specifically formulated for curly hair. Here at Rodi salon, we use Ouidad, formulated with active botanicals and plant extracts to replenish lost moisture and nutrients.

Don’t:

  • The absolute, number 1 rule of curly hair: do not brush when dry. Really, we hardly have to tell you, right? Brushing breaks up the hair strands that form the curls, can yank it out at the root, and even causes split ends. The result? A not so happy head of hair that ends up looking rather… well, large. No thanks!
  • Don’t skip out on your regular trims and/or treatments by your expert stylist. Regular trims keep split ends at bay, and curly hair with split ends is curly hair with frizz. In addition, your stylist has fantastic treatment options to help keep those beautiful curls in hydration heaven, such as our Ouidad Deep Treatment Essential Curl Maintenance. Trust us, your tresses will thank you!
