Styling curly hair can be a process, especially if you’re embracing it after a long spell of heat styling your curl pattern away.
And chances are, if you’ve explored how to properly care for your hair texture, you’ve gotten lost in the rabbit hole that is curly hair styling and care. A curly hair styling routine can seem overwhelming and arduous if you’re just starting out on your curly hair journey or knee-deep in experimenting with styling products and accessories.
But it doesn’t have to be!
Styling starts in the shower
Make sure that your hair is free from tangles before you head in for your shower. Depending on your curl pattern and hair texture, you might want to skip a daily shampoo. Instead use a light dry shampoo like Lunata Give Me Life Dry Shampoo, which can do double duty helping your hair’s natural texture shine through.
If it’s wash day, finger comb or use the Lunata Detangle Me Wet/Dry Brush on very wet and conditioned hair before you start drawing out your curl by scrunching your hair or squishing it in your hands to create curl clumps. If it’s very wet, use a microfiber towel or old cotton t-shirt to plop your hair.
Clip and section for better curls
When it comes to styling, unfurl your hair from its towel. Use the Lunata Bite Me Alligator Hair Clips if you’re finger coiling to keep uncurled sections apart from your curled sections.
Clip hair at the roots for volume with the Lunata Bite Me Alligator Hair Clips. These clips are multitaskers in our Lunata Groom Me Hair-Cutting Kit to section hair off while you cut, can be used to section hair off while you heat style and to give you that boost of volume.
Keep hair up
Keep long hair in a high ponytail or bun when you go to sleep to keep curls intact. If things get a little smashed in the morning, dampen hair with water and scrunch back in place.
Refresh and style
Add volume to wilted curls by spritzing Lunata Give Me Life Dry Shampoo. And if you want to eke out another day before wash day, try Lunata Make Me Last Dry Shampoo. White charcoal, one of the featured ingredients, deodorizes hair.
Because curly hair doesn’t get oily as easily, spritz your hair as needed, focusing on your scalp, and from 4 inches away from your head.
If curls aren’t looking that great or not as consistent as you like, try touching up with the Lunata Cordless Convertible Curling Iron/Wand. The curling iron attachment can easily be taken off if you want to use the curling wand to touch up your curls for a natural look.
