Having curly hair brings me such joy. The springy ringlets are indicative of my large personality, but I didn’t always know how to care for them. Years ago, I was clueless about all the unwritten curly-hair rules. Like, for example, how you should use a specific shampoo to cleanse your curls. I also didn’t know why brushing curly hair is bad or that certain towels can disrupt your curl pattern — and that’s only just the beginning. Not to mention, the commandments vary by curl type, too. Wavy-hair styling tips are very different from those for coily and curly textures.
That’s why we’ve called in the curly-hair experts from Devachan Salon in New York City to create a beginner’s bible to curls. Stylist Eladia Lebron gave three curly editors a makeover while divulging her best tips for taking care of each hair type. This comprehensive guide explains everything from how to apply conditioner properly to how to plop your curls, which is a game-changing drying technique. And best of all, these hair tips will help you get the best hair of your life without a curling iron in sight.
