Curls are said to be big this 2018, whether they be '80s rocker ringlets or relaxed Korean S-waves. Having curly or wavy hair can easily take you from day to night as your tresses will always have volume that automatically looks glamorous. Texture is everything, and achieving it is easy with a bottle of mousse or sea salt spray.
Yes, there are a lot of perks when you’re kulot, but of course, you’ll still need to make sure your hair is healthy. For those who have natural waves or are already sporting the look, it’s important to avoid:
- Heavy shampoos and conditioners with sulfates
Hair products that are too creamy and are not calibrated for wavy hair can weigh down your curls, making them look tired, drab, and frizzy. Opt for shampoos with no sulfates and parabens for that healthy bounce. If you can go for a day or two without shampooing, then all the better!
- Heating tools
Forget about your curling iron (duh) and even your blow dryer: heat damage can cause your hair to look limp, and if you’ve got natural waves, it may take a while (and a lot of growing out) to get your tresses back into shape. If you really, really need to blow dry your hair, then make sure to always use a diffuser.
- Hairbrushes and fine-toothed combs
Keep the frizz at bay and keep your curls intact by using large-toothed combs only when you need to. If not, just quickly run your fingers through your hair and leave it be for the rest of the day!
Whether or not you get on the kulot train, there are still a lot of timely style options to choose from! For 2018, these will definitely be hits:
