Discovering Your Hair Texture

Understanding your hair texture is the first step towards achieving perfect curls. Hair comes in various textures, ranging from straight to kinky. Straight hair is naturally sleek and smooth, while wavy hair has gentle, loose waves. 

Curly hair forms distinct curls and coils, while kinky hair has tight, zigzag-like patterns. To identify your natural hair type, examine your hair when it's clean and free of styling products. Take note of its pattern, hair thickness, and how it behaves when air-dried. 

Once you've determined your hair texture, you'll be better equipped to choose the right products and techniques to enhance and maintain those beautiful bouncy curls.

Turning Straight Hair Into Bouncy Curls

1. Apply a Shampoo and Conditioner

Using products specifically designed for curly hair is crucial for maintaining its health and enhancing those lovely curls. 

Look for sulphate-free shampoos and conditioners, as sulphates can strip natural oils, causing frizz. We recommend trying our UKLASH Hair Shampoo and Conditioner to nourish and define your curls while minimising unwanted fuzz.

2. Air Dry of Diffuse Wet Hair

To achieve stunning curls, choose between air-drying or using a diffuser. Air-drying is gentle and reduces heat damage. Simply apply products, scrunch hair, and let it dry naturally. 

Alternatively, use a diffuser attachment on low heat to evenly distribute air and enhance curls. Remember to scrunch while diffusing for maximum bounce and definition.

3. Use a Curling Iron

    For those with straight hair, a curling iron can work wonders. Start with heat protectant spray, then wrap small sections of hair around the iron, holding for a few seconds. 

    Vary the direction and size of curls for a more natural look. Finish with a light hold hairspray to maintain your curls all day.

    If you’re applying regular heat to your hair, why not invest in a Hair Growth Serum to ensure the strength and ingenuity of your locks. 

    4. Add Body and Texture by Using a Sea Salt Spray

      Sea salt spray adds body and texture to curls, giving them that beachy, tousled look. Spray it onto damp or dry hair, scrunch, and let it air dry or use a diffuser for added volume and definition.

      5. Consider a Heat-free Alternative

        For those looking to avoid heat, try the heat-free method. Start with damp hair, twist small sections into coils, secure with pins or hair ties, and leave overnight. 

        In the morning, gently unravel for beautiful, heat-free curls. This method preserves the health of your hair while achieving stunning results.

        Turning Wavy Hair More Curly

        1. Choose an Anti-frizz Shampoo and Conditioner

        To combat frizz and boost your waves, opt for anti-frizz shampoos and conditioners; look for formulas with hydrating ingredients like argan oil or shea butter.

        2. Add Definition With a Curl-enhancing Foam

        Enhance your natural curls with a curl-enhancing foam. This product helps define and hold your waves without the weight or stickiness of some gels. 

        Simply apply a small amount to damp hair, scrunch gently, and let it air dry or use a diffuser for more pronounced curls. Enjoy bouncy, well-defined waves!

        3. Prevent Frizz by Air-drying or Diffusing

        Frizz prevention is key for beautifully textured waves. Avoid towel-drying vigorously, as it can disrupt the natural pattern. Instead, gently squeeze excess water with a microfiber towel. 

        For air-drying, let hair hang loose or braid it for added definition. When diffusing, use low heat and scrunch while drying for frizz-free, gorgeous waves.

        4. Control Frizz With a Smoothing Hair Oil

        Tame frizz and add shine to your wavy hair with a smoothing hair oil. These oils lock in moisture and keep your waves looking polished. 

        5. Maintain Your Style With a Touch of Hairspray

        Hairspray is your final touch for wavy hair perfection. It helps hold your waves in place and keeps them looking effortlessly chic.

        How to Style Naturally Curly Hair

        1. Use Curly Hair Shampoo and Conditioner

        Specialised products for curly hair are essential for maintaining healthy, defined curls. Look for sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners designed to hydrate and enhance curls. Recommended options include DevaCurl No-Poo Original and One Condition Original, or Ouidad Curl Quencher Shampoo and Conditioner. These products cater to curly hair's unique needs, promoting bounce and reducing frizz.

        2. Beat Humidity With a Frizz-resistant Serum

        Humidity can wreak havoc on curly hair, causing unwanted frizz and loss of definition. Combat this issue with a frizz-resistant hair growth serum that seals the cuticle and locks in moisture. Apply a small amount evenly to your curls for a sleek, frizz-free finish, even in humid conditions.

        3. Air Dry Naturally

        Air drying is gentle on curly hair, reducing the risk of damage and frizz. To enhance natural curl patterns, apply a curl-enhancing product, scrunch your hair gently, and let it dry naturally. Avoid touching your curls while drying to maintain their shape. This method promotes healthy, well-defined curls with minimal fuss.

        4. Use a Styling Spray

        Elevate your curls with a styling spray tailored to your curl type. For loose waves, try Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray. For defined curls, consider Ouidad Botanical Boost Curl Energising and Refreshing Spray. Simply spritz on damp hair and scrunch for a quick refresh or added definition, helping you achieve the perfect curly look.

        5. Control Unruly Flyaways

        Unruly flyaways can be tamed with a few tricks. Apply a small amount of hair oil or anti-frizz serum to your fingertips and gently smooth over flyaways. You can also use a soft-bristle brush sprayed with hairspray to lay them down. Alternatively, opt for a light-hold hair spray to secure those pesky flyaways in place.

        Nighttime Care for Curly Hair

        Nighttime care is crucial for maintaining the health and shape of your curls. Sleeping on regular cotton pillowcases can lead to frizz and flattened curls. To preserve your curly beauty, switch to a silk or satin pillowcase. 

        Additionally, consider using a satin bonnet or scarf to protect your curls from friction and moisture loss while you sleep. By implementing these nighttime routines, you can wake up to refreshed, well-defined curls that require less morning styling. This proactive approach to hair care ensures your curls stay stunning day and night.

        Common Mistakes to Avoid

        Common curly hair care mistakes include: 

        • Using products with sulphates and harsh chemicals that strip natural oils
        • Overwashing, and excessive heat styling that leads to damage. 

        To avoid these pitfalls, opt for sulphate-free products, reduce washing frequency to maintain natural oils, and limit heat styling. 

        Additionally, avoid brushing curly hair when dry to prevent frizz and breakage; instead, use a wide-tooth comb when wet. 

        Lastly, refrain from touching your curls throughout the day to minimise disruption. By avoiding these common errors and adopting a proper curly hair care routine, you can enjoy healthier, more vibrant curls.
