Well, my hair is pretty obnoxiously curly, so I'll give you my routine. I wash and condition it at night and go to bed with wet hair and when I wake up it's dry and cutely curled up. Then I shake it out and fluff a little and that's it. Combing it breaks up the curls and makes it into a bigger mass than I like, so I usually only do it about once a month. Curly hair tends to be drier and more brittle than straight hair and can't stand up to a lot of brushing; I don't comb it often because, well, I have other priorities. Hope that helps.

I'm confused
you only comb your hair once a month.
I have curly hair and if I did that i'd have dreads my first week of not combing.
Try brushing it while it's wet with conditioner in it. Also to keep the frizzies at a low, I like mousse. Separate the hair into three sections and mousse away

I suggest you use gel while your hair is still wet. When it's dry it stays curly without looking wild. (p.s. don't use super strengh gel 'cause then your wair will look wet and stiff all day long)

Oh, good point. I forgot to mention that my hair is only about shoulder length. It used to be longer, but you're right, I got sick of trying to comb the dreads out. I don't bother to fight frizz because where I live is very humid. Damn, I'm lazy....

I have extremely curly hair. Even when it is behaving, I still look like I have dreads because the curl is so tight! I feel your pain, sistah!

First of all, do not shampoo everyday and make sure you condition everytime you take a shower. Comb it when it is wet. Find a good heavy conditioner to use once a week (I like the All Soft one by Redken!) and let it soak in your hair for a good while.

I would also suggest a gel. Biolage makes a fantastic one. You only need a little bit to go a long way. If you're short on cash, the curly line by Pantene Pro-v works lovely. When applying the gel, start at the ends and work your way up to your roots to avoid the dreaded helmet hair (you know, when it sticks to you head at the roots and then BAM! poofyness!). Flip your hair to the front, side, and back to further combat the evil Helmet Hair denom. I would also suggest buying a hairdryer WITH a diffuser. They aren't too expensive; I picked mine up from Wal-Mart for under $20 and it works lovely.

Curly Hair Care
I'm using Garnier Fructis right now, and I like the smell and the softness, but it just doesnt last all day.
What do you like to use?

Thanks for the help!

Herbal Essences Mousse I find to be good at giving definition without crunch.
Also, I like the Sally's version of Paul Mitchell Super Clean Sculpting gel. Both are fairly cheap, too!

This website helped me a lot with questions about taking care of my curly hair.
