Calling all curly girlies and kinky sisters! Keep your natural waves and sexy swirls free from the fuzz with expert Mark Smith's hot hints
Protect dry hair from unruliness by using an anti-frizz serum to form a protective barrier around the strands and shield them from moisture.
To prevent flyaways, use a heat-protector product on damp hair before blowdrying to smooth the cuticle down.
Curly hair is prone to be coarse and dry, so never rush your styling routine as it’s likely to frizz.
Dry curly hair with a diffuser – it simulates the natural drying process as the air is spread across a wider area and allowed to circulate.
Avoid scrunching your hair when you’re drying with a diffuser as it can create unruly frizz.
If your hair is naturally curly, don’t wash it every day. It’ll only improve on the second day.
Never comb or brush curly hair when it’s dry.
Enhance natural waves with a specialist curl shampoo and conditioner.
Never rub your hair dry with a towel. Always blot any excess water out using a dabbing action.
Take extra care of your hair on humid or rainy days – moisture in the air will lift the cuticle layer and roughen its texture and appearance.
Try not to touch your hair once it is styled as it could disturb the cuticle and make it fluffy.
If your hair’s looking a bit flat, just tip your head upside down and give it a good shake.
13 Limit the number of times you blowdry or use straightening tongs to twice a week at the most and see the difference!
Don’t wash your hair too often – every other day is usually enough.
Read the instructions on the styling products you’re using and follow them carefully to get the best results.
Ask your stylist to show you how to dress your hair with the right products and tools.
Allow your hair to dry naturally as often as possibly. Simply apply some smoothing cream or serum and leave it.
Use a specialist curl spray to re-activate and revive your ringlets or natural waves before a night out.
Use a curl cream on damp hair and allow to dry naturally for defined corkscrews, or use a diffuser for softer, looser curls.
Whether your hair is wavy or straight, you can get a sleek finish by preparing it with a frizz-preventing shampoo and conditioner.
