Curls : Vow to Love, Cherish and Embrace

The ghd and the straightener has for long enough dominated modern hairdressing (although we're sure we read somewhere that people really did used to iron their hair. With the iron.) But it takes its toll on the condition of the hair and limits styling options, especially if you are lucky enough to have naturally curly hair.

Here's Friends of Bettie Claire's Top Tips for Loving and Cherishing Your Curls.

1.Curls need MOISTURE. They are thirsty little things so conditioning properly is top a priority. The best we've found is Davines Lovely Curl Enhancing Conditioner containing Pistachio Oil and Rice Wax. Yummy.
2.Once a week give those curls an extra boost with a luxury conditioning treatment. They'll love you back for it.
3. After a great wash, go careful on towel drying. An affectionate squeeze is more than enough. Rough towel drying may well leave a frizz fiasco in its wake.
4. Use a great styling product suited to curly hair and apply whilst wet.
5. Don't rush your drying process. Those gorgeous conditioned curls need to keep their shape, so use a diffuser attachment on a slow speed and only moderate heat.
6. Don't brush curly hair between washes, else you'll have another frizz fiasco!
7. Regular trims will blitz any split ends and keep those curls in the manner they've now become accustomed.

Love your curls and they will Love you back.

Thanks Claire for the expert tips!
