Curly hair gets cut and styled in an entirely different manner than straight hair. The key is to
“express never suppress” the curls.
Ouidad, a curl expert in the beauty industry, believes that “Curls are bold, natural, vibrant and classic works of art!”
As a hair styling professional, I categorize curly hair into four types: loose, wavy, curly, and last but not least, kinky. All of these types require proper maintenance, and the first step is washing the hair with a gentle shampoo specifically intended for the hair type. After shampooing, conditioning is very important and should never be skipped. Curls need moisture and the more the bouncier. After conditioning, a curl cream or gel is applied. The results are striking and the look is indeed bold, natural, vibrant and classic.
