When thinking about wavy hair the image that comes to mind is often of luscious, thick locks flowing in the wind like a victoria’s secret top model or Beyonce power walking in front of a fan, but what a woman who actually had thick wavy hair knows, is that having that sort of hair can be a pain sometimes.
Waves and curls can very often be completely untameable, making thick wavy hair can often be quite difficult to style, and thus, the flat iron an easy resort and a simple salvation from the disorderly curls. However, straightening your hair can cause permanent hair damage, and the loss of your beautiful waves, and nobody wants that, believe me, take it from someone who lost their curls for 20 years !
So why not use your hair’s unique qualities to your own benefit? You were blessed with great waves and curls, why not take advantage of that ? All you need to do is choose the right haircut to really bring to light your best features, and your curls are going to look superb!
There are so many perks to having curly or wavy hair : Messy buns are always going to look great on you regardless of how how little effort you put into them; you never risk having flat lifeless hair as it always looks big, bold and beautiful; and it is so easy to notice, so you’ll never have to try hard to stand out ! Along with those aesthetic advantages, there are also biological ones : Curly hair is less prone to split ends compared to straight hair; it also provides an extra layer of protection against the elements especially in hotter climates, it’s like a built-in air conditioning system.
Curly hair is timeless, and transcends all fashion trends. Remember the time when every single person with straight hair rushed to the hair salon monthly to get a perm? The good ol’ days ! Own your curls and choose a trendy haircut of any length and experiment with different textures, finishes, and hair color ideas.
Here are some handy dandy tips that might be helpful if you’re trying to keep your hair looking healthy :
- Be extra attentive when choosing your hair care products. Opt for products that were made with your hair texture in mind, products that maintain, protect and nourish your curls.
- Try to limit the use of blow-dryers and heat sources in general. Maybe let your hair air-dry instead and style it using products such as leave-in conditioners and pomades.
- Avoid fine-toothed combs and other hair brushes and brush your locks with special adapted brushes for thick curly hair.
- Why not pay a visit to the hair salon every once in a while for a hair repair treatment. Even the strongest and healthiest hair needs professional care, if not t repair any damage, then just to prevent any harm and keep it in top shape.
