3 Curly Hair Hacks To Tame & Replenish

Curly hair is beautiful, but it comes with a lot of maintenance! Are you always finding that you’re unable to tame the frizz and having trouble defining your curls?

We’re here to help! Curly hair doesn’t need to be difficult and we don’t want you to hide your beautiful hair in a bun every day! 

Cut down your styling time with these 3 easy hair hacks for curly hair. 

#1  Coconut Oil Hair Treatment
#2 Try A T-Shirt Turban
#3 Using A Diffuser


#1 - Coconut Oil Hair Treatment



Curly hair holds less hydration than straight hair. The lack of hydration causes frizz which ultimately makes your locks appear dull. This can also lead to brittle hair and split ends. No thank you!

What does coconut oil do for curly hair? Coconut oil is great for hydrating frizzy and brittle hair because it’s one of the few oils that can penetrate the hair shaft deeply leaving the hair frizz-free and shinier. So if your locks are thirsty for some hydration definitely try this hack! 

How to do a coconut oil hair treatment: 

  1. Heat a small amount of organic virgin coconut oil.
  2. Apply to dry hair, then wrap the hair with a warm towel and sleep with it overnight. 
  3. Wash your hair in the morning and you will see the difference! 


#2 - Try a T-shirt Turban For Your Curly Hair



When your hair is wet, it's more prone to becoming weak. Using a regular towel exposes your hair to the texture of the towel, which can be aggressive against the cuticles of your hair. #ouch!

Towels actually absorb all the moisture from your hair, but what we want is to only absorb the excess water without taking out the moisture. Moisture is our friend and we need it to prevent hair from becoming a frizz ball!

The answer? Dry your hair with a shirt! Simple. T-shirts don’t have the rough texture that towels do, so the t-shirt won’t be so rough against your locks. It’ll only absorb the excess. All you need is an old tee that you won’t be missing and a bit of patience!

Here’s how to dry your curly hair using a t-shirt:

  1. After washing your hair, grab a soft cotton tee that you’re not using anymore.
  2. Gather your hair, wrap the tee around and remove any excess water by wringing it out. 
  3. Once your hair is damp, flip your hair over. Pull your hair through the opening of the tee, keeping the neckline of your t-shirt wrapped around your head. 
  4. Flip up the t-shirt up and like a normal towel turban, tuck the end of your t-shirt underneath the opening at the nape of the neck.


#3 - Using a diffuser for curly hair to define them



The diffuser attachment on a hairdryer, like the  Digital Sensor Dryer helps to minimize frizz when drying curls. It works by dispensing air more softly and evenly across your locks rather than blowing it around in one concentrated spot. 

No gal wants freakish frizzy curls, so along with minimising frizz, it can also help enhance your natural curls. A diffuser helps to define curls, even them out and also speeds up your drying time. Yassss!


Here’s how to use a diffuser to define your curls:

  1. Wash your hair and when you’re coming out of the shower, don’t rub your hair with a towel. Instead, use a t-shirt to dry your hair.
  2. Apply mousse or leave-in conditioner and some heat protectant.
  3. Start by taking a section of your hair and twisting it around your finger to get the desired curl shape. Repeat for another few sections. 
  4. Lift the twisted section into the diffuser, set it to a low heat and low-speed setting. 
  5. Continue until you’ve dried all sections of your hair and voila! You should be left with beautiful frizz free curls!
