Over 60 percent of all women have curly or wavy hair. More and more of these 60 percent are starting to wear their hair curly. Six years ago, straight hair may have been in, but today the natural look is in and that means wearing your hair as is, especially if it's curly. If you have curly hair and want to style it curly after having worn it straight for years, you might be at a loss as to how you should style it. Good news, if you hated spending hours on your hair straightening it every morning, you are in for a treat if you are going to start wearing it curly. It takes only a few minutes to style curly hair.Before wearing your hair curly, there are two important things you must know. First, curly hair is often inconsistent and may not always behave. One day you might have perfect curls and then you may never be able to copy that look again. Luckily, you can make it look great even if it doesn't, always look the same. Second, curly hair needs moisture. Always avoid things that will dry out your hair such as bleach, hair dryers, and straightening and curling irons, and moisturize as much as possible. Use a moisturizing daily conditioner and use a deep conditioner every week. If the extra moisture makes your hair oily, concentrate the extra moisture away from your scalp where the oil is produced and closer to the older, dryer ends.In order to begin styling your hair, first wash and condition it, and then leave it soaking wet to prepare for the product. Next, in your hand, squeeze about a dime size amount for short hair or a quarter size amount or more for long hair, of leave-in conditioner. Next, squeeze in an equal amount of curling gel. You can add in a pump or two of defrizzing serum if you'd like. Mix it together well and rub it between your hands. Rake the mixture evenly throughout your soaking wet hair and scrunch your hair up towards your head to help it curl.You can add the products to your hair with your head upside down for more volume. Let your hair air dry or use a diffuser for a few minutes on a low cool setting to help it along. Once it is dry, scrunch your hair a bit if it's crunchy, and then enjoy your perfect curls.If you want to find some more hairstyles for curly hair and learn about how to care for curly hair, go to for more information.
