It seems like everyone is dissatisfied with their appearance in some way. You may complain that your eyelashes aren’t long enough or your lips aren’t full enough. If you have straight hair, you want curly hair, and if you have curly hair, you want straight hair. No matter what, ladies find something difficult about beautifying. If you are one of those who has curly hair, following are a few tips and styles you may find at a salon in Boston.
Choose Your Cut
If you have curly hair, you may fear cutting it short because of the round afro you could end up with afterward. So it is important to choose a cut that will work with your hair and your face. Stylists recommend keeping your hair at shoulder length or longer. This does mean that you will probably experience a lot more heat year round than your straight-haired counterparts. But it will be the most flattering for you, especially if you add in some layers so your hair doesn’t look too heavy on the bottom. Short hair can work too, if you keep it two to three inches long all the way around, and cut to mimic the shape of your head.
Use Product Wisely
If you have curly hair, you should avoid washing your hair too often. Use shampoo depending on the thickness of your hair—as little as once per week if it is very thick. Use moisturizing products that have ingredients like palm or avocado oil, or Shea butter. You can fight frizz by using lots of conditioner containing silicone when you shower. Let it sit in your hair for several minutes to absorb the moisture. You should also use a leave-in conditioner.
You should know that in order to fight frizz, you need products that seal the cuticle. Various creams and oils can help you seal the cuticle to keep out moisture. When it comes to styling, professionals recommend avoiding heat and using your hands minimally to let your hair air dry with minimal frizz. If you must use heat, use a diffuser. Stylists at a salon in Boston should be able to recommend the best products and other styling tips.
