[quote]I have thick hair that tends to curl. It’s on the longer side. I blow-dry it to make it more manageable but after that a lot of individual hairs stick out and just look ugly.[/quote]
[quote]I want to add some kind of product to make it more natural, but at the same time I don’t want my hair to get sticky or greasy like with gel and wax…[/quote]
What makes hair curly or straight?
Hair follicles are tiny tubular structures that position the hair fiber up and out of your scalp and are responsible for the shape of your hair. Some tubes are circular and generate straight hair; others are oval and produce curly hair.
Typically, curly hair is drier than straight hair. Although, the oils secreted from your scalp are natural moisturizers, it is harder for them to travel down the shaft of a curly strand than a straight one. Hence, curly hair always needs extra moisture and a different hair regimen than straight hair; especially when you are a guy trying to sport a medium length hairstyle. So here are some curly hair tips and hair products for men from our hair stylists:
Shampoo Less, Condition More
You don’t need to shampoo every day to feel clean. Wash your hair twice a week, but rinse and condition it daily.
Use A Sulfate-Free Shampoo
If you have a medium length hairstyle, don’t skimp on shampoos. A sulfate-free shampoo is more expensive, but it’s best for curly hair. Sulfates are harsh on hair and can make curly hair even frizzier than normal. Sulfate-free shampoos are also an option if you suffer of eczema.
Air Dry Is Better Than Blow Dry
To avoid frizzy hair, apply you hair products on damp hair, mold it into a desired shape and let it air dry. The less you touch your hair, the better it will keep up its shape with minimal frizz.
