Top 4 Things to Do to Keep Curly Hair Healthy

1. Protect it from heat

Both hot water and blow drying can take its toll on curly hair. If you do blow dry your hair, try a heat protectant. Paul Mitchell Hot Off the Press thermal protection spray helps shield fragile strands from damage caused by too much heat.


2. Detangle with care

You might already do this, but pick up a detangling comb and some detangling spray like Original Sprout Miracle Detangler for any knots. Be gentle, starting at the end, and work toward the roots. Don’t pull too hard or force the comb through a snarl to keep from breaking the hair strands.


3. Dry it right

Towel drying can cause a lot of friction, which leads to frizz and breakage. Gently wring your hair and let it air dry.


4. Give it a big drink

Curly hair craves moisture, and well-hydrated hair is easier to manage and is less prone to break. A balanced moisturizing shampoo and conditioning system is essential. Try a sulfate-free, gentle-cleansing product, like Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Moisturizing Lather Shampoo and Conditioner. It replenishes the strands, and helps repair dry, brittle hair.


No one knows your hair like your stylist, so make the most of your time in the stylist’s chair by asking for more ways to keep your curls healthy.
