Curly hair don’t care! Or, do you? According to a 2014 survey of 859 women in the U.S., Brazil and U.K. conducted by Dove, only 10 percent of U.S. respondents reported they “feel proud” of their curly hair.
Curly hair is beautiful, and managing it doesn’t have to be a pain in the brush! Try some of these hacks to make your life a little bit easier.
1. Drains Clogged?
If you detangle your hair over the bathroom sink, try covering it with Saran Wrap first. It will catch all of the hair before it gets to the drain and it makes cleanup a breeze. If you like to detangle in the shower, use a drain cover. It let’s the water in and keeps the hair out!
2. Comb or Brush?
Curly hair is better handled with a wide-tooth comb, and if you can’t find yours, use your fingers. They are a great alternative! This will ensure less damage and will keep your frizz levels down.
