4 Hacks To Make The Most Of Naturally Curly Hair

It's taken years for this curly-haired girl to embrace her natural hair and learn the best ways to keep it looking fabulous.

Now I don't claim to know all the secrets to great-looking curly hair but here are 4 hacks I've learned that will keep yours looking amazing:

1. Don't over-wash your hair

Curly hair needs lots of moisture and washing your hair too often with a shampoo that isn't designed for curly hair will strip the moisture from it.

Only wash your hair twice a week and use a deep conditioning treatment once a week to help lock in the moisture for your precious curls.

My personal favourite treatment to use is the Curly Jelly mask by Umberto Giannini.

2. Silk is your best friend

I know this may sound extra but sleeping in a silk cap or on a silk pillowcase will seriously improve the look of your hair.

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase or with a silk cap will help your curls retain moisture and keep their shape. The smoothness of the fabric will also prevent frizz and breakages.


Slip pillowcases are the most popular on the market with the likes of Kim Kardashian and Jen Atkin using them. If you're on a budget like me, Amazon has some great options too.

3. Perfect your hair care routine

Finding the products that work best for your hair will seriously help your curls.

It's best to stick with products designed specifically for curly hair as other products could strip your curls of that all-important moisture.

I would recommend finding a specific range of products that work best for your hair and sticking with it. The products in hair care ranges are generally designed to work best when used together.

Umberto Giannini is by far the best brand for curly hair in my opinion. They have product ranges for curls, coily curls, waves and many other hair types.

4. Refresh your curls between washes

Using a spray bottle filled with water will give your curls a quick refresh between washes. You can also add some leave-in conditioner to the bottle if you like.


Keeping a spray bottle with water handy is great if you don't want to get your scalp went or if you don't want to jump in the shower to wet your hair for a refresh.
