Curly Hairstyles Tips For Men: How To Maintain Curly Hair?

Make no mistake: hair full of curly hair is simply irresistible. Not to mention that not everyone is lucky enough to have bouncy waves (or hair at all!); so, if you are one of the lucky ones, we implore you to make the most of it. Wondering what to do with curly hair? Guys with the interview in mind, read on:

Save the shampoo

Be Thrifty With Your Shampoo: Yes, when it comes to washing, less is more . Instead of stripping your hair of its natural oils on a daily basis, simply spray a good dry shampoo on your roots for a quick refresh.

Let's be clear: we don't recommend taking a shower every day (unless your goal is a real caveman), but just limit shampooing to (at most) every other day to keep that hair in pristine condition. . This applies to long, medium and short curly hair no matter how tight or loose your curls are.

Oil

Just like your facial forestry demands a good beard oil, so does your curly hair. Take a nourishing hair oil and work it into your strands for an instant injection of moisture. This is especially important for thick , curly hair , as it tends to dry out faster. Use hair oil after washing your hair, and incorporate a weekly hair mask into your routine for extra hydration points.

Go light

Guys with thinner (or thinner) curly hair, heed our advice. When choosing hair products, go for lightweight foams, creams, and gels. Curly hair is a sucker for weighing it down, which can create an unbalanced aesthetic (read: flat roots contrasting with wild, kinky ends, so unless "endless monsoon season and no access to shampoo" be your desired look, that's not cool, buddies).

Cut, cut

While longer curls can get away with less frequent hairstyling trips, you'll still need to show up every now and then to cut those slits. Look at crisp, short and mid-length curls: you are not exempt; Regardless of the length, you count on those curls that look healthy, nourished and free from split ends, so book a monthly cut (or almost) and a blow-dry at your hairdresser to stay on top.

And finally? Do not leave your personal care with the hair. Nothing works better with droopy locks than clear, healthy skin and a spray of scented cologne.

Stay stylish: our quick tips

Now that your locks are as healthy as possible, the next phase is: styling . The good news? It's as easy as pie and won't eat into your morning.

Long Curls: Long, curly hair is super versatile, especially if it's long. Tie it up, go ahead or wear those loose locks for a Greek god vibe (that was cool back then, and it's cool now, we promise ).

Medium Curls: Keep your curls neat and smooth by using a mattifying wax or gel after a shower. While your hair is damp, part it from root to tip for defined, shiny locks.

Short curls: Rule number one? Keep it trimmed, lest you start to look like a certain Frodo Baggins. However, in addition to regular cuts, you can just add a touch of curl defining product, to keep those curls from merging.
