3 Tips and Tricks for Curly Hair

Curly hair has a reputation for being one of the hardest hair types to manage and style. It’s drier, affected more by changes in humidity and is more prone to split ends and breakage. If you’re a curly girl, step away from the flatiron and follow these tips and tricks from our Aveda master stylists for achieving some major curl power!

av_AJ22_2541. Moisturize – Whether your in the depths of a dry winter or the stickiness of a hot summer, curly hair begs for moisture all year long. To combat frizz and achieve gorgeous looking curls, you must moisturize! We love Aveda’s new Be Curly Intensive Detangling Masque. The rich and intensive masque with certified organic babassu oil and shea butter separates even the most tangled of curls while helping to moisturize and fight frizz.

Our experts say: 

“The best advice I can offer to curly girls, like myself? You can never over-moisturize curls.”

- Tippi Shorter, Aveda Global Artistic Director for Textured Hair.

“I truly believe it’s all about finding the right amount of moisture that’s going to keep curls locked into place without getting overly frizzy.”  

– Geno Chapman, Stylist, Julian August Salon, Beverly Hills, CA

2. Color – Adding color to curly hair brings out the texture and dimension of gorgeous curls and coils. Don’t be afraid to experiment with new and trendy color shades.

Our experts say:

“I think a lot of people are scared of coloring curly hair, because it has a very interesting texture. But I think you can really play around with color to bring out that texture.”

– Ian Michael Black, Global Artistic Director, Hair Color

“As a colorist, I really love to work with natural curl and texture and to highlight the natural beauty of individual curls using hair color.” 

– Terry Varty, Aveda Mentor, Juut Salon, Edina, MN

3. Be selective - Select the right products to gently tame your curly mane. When washing curly hair, it is especially important to be gentle during the cleansing process to help tame frizz and without being abrasive to curly strands. We love our new Aveda Be Curly Co-Wash. The new Co-Wash starts the conditioning and moisturizing process all the way through the cleansing and conditioning experience, which is key for maintaining moisture. Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil instantly moisturizes hair by 41% with the hydrating super power of buriti oil.

Our experts say:

“I advise my clients to keep Dry Remedy™ Daily Moisturizing oil in their bag so whenever they experience dry, static-filled air, they can simply squeeze a few drops into hair to calm it down.” 

– Dylan Sit, Creative Director, Civello Salon and Spa, Toronto Canada
