To prevent your hair from getting unnaturally volumized when you dry it, use a flat brush and not a round one.
Short Curly Hair
Most of the times, short curly hair are not oily but get frizzy. Short curly hair is usually dense and thick.
If you have this type of hair and you want to have a haircut, you surely need some professional advice by a hair stylist. Short curly hair does not look nice on every woman but looks better on those who have an oval face shape.
To control frizzy hair better, you need to apply a mixture of gel and styling cream on your wet hair soon after you finish washing it. This is because when the hair is hydrated, it doesn´t need to attract humidity from the environment and therefore it doesn´t frizz.
So, you need to choose anti frizz products with moisturizing ingredients. Our review on some of the best anti-humidity hair products will help you get an idea of some fine products.
Also, during the days that you don´t shampoo your hair, you can use a leave-in-conditioner such as ¨It´s a 10 Leave-In Conditioner¨ which is a very popular among users product.
It contains Keratin and replaces all the lost protein of your hair, detangling, defrizzing and adding shine to it. This product restores hydration which is what you need if you have short curly hair to prevent it from becoming frizzy.

If you have short curly hair and you want to avoid the poodle effect, forget all about brushing. The only thing you need is a wide tooth comb.
Long Wavy Hair
This type of hair can either be thin wavy or thick wavy with natural curls. The sure thing is that if you have wavy hair, you are daily dealing with lots of difficulties when it comes to its care and styling.
What you really need to do if you have this type of hair is often visit your hairdresser to clear your split ends since the excessive use of hair iron tools and hair dryers weakens the hair and damages the ends.
If you are thinking to dye your hair, remember that the light does not reflect the same way on long wavy hair as it does on straight hair but it spreads, and therefore the color might look darker and your hair less shiny that what you would expect.
Hair products you should look for are the ones that are nourishing, moisturizing and specialized to preserve your curls and give them bounce without feeling heavy. In this case, you might want to have a look at our deep conditioning masks.
If you have wavy thin hair, replace the cream with a lighter but equally effective product. If you straighten your hair with a hair dryer, apply a leave-in antifrizz hair product on your wet hair.
The Arvazallia Argan Oil Hair Treatment & Conditioner is a good product to use in order to deal with frizz, protect your hair from the heat as well as provide it with hydration and nourishment. It also improves manageability and adds softness and shine to your hair.

Here’s a way to revitalize your hair and give it a break from those hot styling tools. You can follow this treatment 2-3 times a month.
Shampoo your hair at night, pat it dry, apply a nourishing natural oil, comb it and pull it back low in to a tight shinion. Next morning, untie your hair and separate your curls without brushing your hair. You will see that your hair will be slick at the top and then wavy without getting frizzy.
Damaged hair is fragile, porous and looks dull because of the daily styling and straightening as well as dyeing. So what you really need is a restorative hair treatment at the hairdresser’s and then intensive hair care at home with some specialized hair care products.
The best treatment for damaged hair is natural oils. You can either use a product that is rich in nourishing oils once a week and leave it on the whole night as a mask or use natural oils on their own.
If your hair has gotten damaged from the daily styling (blow drying and straightening), you need to look for hair repair products. If they are damaged from the dyes, then use these products together with other ones that strengthen the hair and at the same time protect its color.
