If nature gifted you with curly hair, you’re well aware of the struggles of maintaining gorgeous curls. Sometimes the struggle is so frustrating that curly-haired gals opt to straighten or relax their lovely coils to make their mane easier to style and manage. But curly hair doesn’t have to be a burden in your life. With the proper care and styling you can embrace your naturally curly hair in 2023 with ease.
The secret to embracing your curls is having healthy curls in the first place. Curly hair is typically quite dry due to its cellular structure. This means to keep your curls soft and springy you must keep them well moisturized. Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo, True Textures Moisture Replenish Conditioner?, and Moisture Fusion Intense Moisturizing Mask? will intensively and deeply hydrate your strands to keep your curls smooth, defined, and touchably soft.
How often you shampoo is just as important as the shampoo you use because even the most moisturizing shampoo will leave your curls dry and brittle if you overuse it. Shampooing once or twice per week is usually a good schedule to keep your coils clean and healthy. Never skip conditioner, and use leave-in conditioner daily if needed to quench any dry ends and tame flyaways. A weekly moisturizing hair mask will make sure your curls remain deeply hydrated and healthy.
There are a few things that you should never do when wearing your hair naturally curly. The first is never blow dry without a diffuser. You should also avoid touching your curls as much as possible throughout the day. Handling curls excessively causes them to separate and frizz. Even though it may seem easier to brush curly hair when it’s wet, this is when hair is at its weakest. Instead, detangle before hopping in the shower. You’ll have less breakage and your curls will have more definition if they’re allowed to dry as they fall naturally after washing.
Getting the right cut is also key to success with natural curls. A good cut will work with your curls rather than working against them. Cutting curly hair properly takes a special skill. You can trust the stylists at Village Salon to treat your curls right. Here are a few trending cuts that work extremely well with lots of natural texture.
Pixie- If you want to showcase your curls without them ever getting in your face, go with a modern curly pixie. This cut is ultra feminine, super sexy, and incredibly easy to manage. It is truly a wash-and-go curly style. Just work some Mizani Styling Foam Wrap through your curls, give a quick finger detangle, and you’re ready to dash out the door.
Shag- The choppy layers of a shag haircut are the perfect way to remove some weight to allow your curls to coil to their full potential. The cut evenly distributes volume and curls throughout your main, unlike some cuts that can weigh curls down and leave your style flat on top. A shag doesn’t require much styling. Like the pixie, you simply need to apply your styling product, tousle your curls and you’re ready to go.
Side Part With Big Curls- Deep side parts are in for 2023, and they look especially stunning with a head full of big curls. Simply parting your current style on the side can change its entire shape giving you a whole new look without truly changing anything.
Hair color for curls in the new year is all about highlights and contrast. Select curls are strategically highlighted to accentuate your coils. Here are some curly colors you’ll be seeing everywhere in 2023.
Chocolate And Honey- Honey blonde highlights offer a lighter touch that makes curls pop against a chocolate brown base. The warm honey color emphasizes your curl pattern and accentuates shine with a sunny glow.
Dark Red- Dark brown and black colors gain a major boost of depth from dark red-tipped coils. The tighter the curls the more the color will stand out creating a halo of color.
90s Blonde- What color could better compliment big beachy side parted curls than 90s blonde? The 90s are making a comeback in 2023 in both fashion and beauty. By embracing your natural curls you can be one step ahead of the game with the classic big hair look. Bleaching your curls to a buttery blonde will complete the aesthetic perfectly.
Rose Gold- Touches of rose gold make dark curls come alive. The contrast of the colors creates an illusion of light and shadows that really catches the eye, and the almost metallic look of rose gold adds even more interest. Whatever style you’re wearing, finish it with Mizani HD Shine spray to accentuate the metallic effect with loads of shine.
