Pump Up Your Natural Curls
Do you have natural curls? So often those with naturally curly hair tend to struggle embracing it. Let’s face it: we all want what we don’t have, especially when it comes to our hair. Recently, Halle Berry stepped out with incredible curls in her hair. We’ve definitely seen a rise in embracing the natural texture of our own hair recently, especially those with curly hair. If you’re like us, Halle Berry stepping out with pumped-up curls definitely inspired you to want to try to find ways to pump up your natural curls. Fortunately, we’ve discovered a few ways you can pump up your natural curls to get those gorgeous locks yourself.
Opt for Sulfate Free
According to hair experts, if you really want to pump up your natural curls it’s time to look at your everyday hair care products like shampoo and conditioning items. Do they contain sulfates? If the shampoos and conditioners you’re currently using have sulfates in them, it’s time to make a switch. It’s been found that sulfates can be a bit too harsh on naturally curly hair and opting for options without sulfates can help your natural curls really do their thing much more naturally. So it’s time to take a look, and make a switch to get your shampoo and conditioning products working with your hair rather than against it.
Focus on Conditioning the Hair
When our hair is lacking moisture and hydration, it tends to be dry and brittle. When naturally curly hair is dry and brittle it’s hard to really enhance the natural curls and get them to do what you want them to do on their own. This is why keeping your curly hair moisturized and hydrated is so important. Make sure that you’re using a great quality conditioning product when you wash your hair. Furthermore, to really make sure that you’re keeping your curly hair well moisturized and hydrated it’s suggested to make use of leave-in conditioning products. Leave-in conditioners help to really add that additional moisture your hair may need and really encourage your hair to be well moisturized and give you those pumped up natural curls you’re trying to achieve. Some experts suggest taking things a step further and applying a deep conditioning treatment to your hair once a week to really make sure you’re locking in the moisture and hydration for those natural curls.
Don’t Touch or Brush
One of the common mistakes people make when trying to pump up their natural curls is fussing with them too much. After you wash your hair, allow it to dry and do its thing on its own. That means don’t brush or comb it, and avoid too much touching with your hands and fingers. When we fuss too much with the natural curls it tends to alter the way they dry. Leave your hair alone and let it dry the way it wants to naturally. You’ll likely be surprised at how pumped up the natural curls get when you do that.
