My hair is naturally quite curly, but I have always blow dryer it, and recently I have found it is getting REALLY frizzy and is bone dry. There are bits that feel almost like wire? I have always had healthy hair, so for it to change abruptly is kinda strange....
Any tips?
-We all want someone to notice, until they do...
Then we wish more than anything that they didn't"

-I stopped talking about how I felt...
Because I knew no one cares anyway I

- My mind was a mess
Then I found a razor...
Now my body is a mess too...

The situation may seem horrible, but really, I'm fine...

brazilian blowout is good, it makes it smooth without removing the curls, keratin makes it straight

massage in coconut oil or olive oil (or both) before you wash it, binds moisture to the strand, really helped with my ends. Also deep conditioners, like the aussie 3 min miracle one is a life saver, or leave in conditioners provide extra moisture. And when you blow dry, let it air dry a little first and blow dry on a low setting, its a little extra detangling and drying work compared to mostly wet hair and high heat, but partially dry hair and using a heat spray or protective oil or spray means less heat on your hair which means less breakage.
Hope this helps, good luck ๐Ÿ‘

NO!!

Curly hair is more fragile than straight. Imagine each strand as a tiny baby; you are blasting the babies with Intense heat.
when you wash your hair, work a leave in conditioner through it. Let it air dry if you can. Seal the ends With an oil like vitamin e, argan oil, almond oil, etc.

I know it's been said numerous times, but cannot fault coconut oil! I leave it in overnight or all day so it gets a good few hours of soaking and it works an absolute treat! Just be careful to make sure you get it all out (especially at the crown) when washing it out, otherwise it looks and feels greasy

If you use oil, use coconut oil, but as someone with thin frizzy curly hair I must say that I kinda stepped away from the oils because it makes my hair heavy, which pulls the curls down, which is going to make it frizzy eventually.

 

Use a very mild shampoo, don't shampoo the lengths of your hair, only your scalp. Only use a tiny amount to avoid stripping your hair further from its oils. Use a good conditioner afterwards that is made for curly hair. For drying, gently scrunch your hair in a towel (t-shirt is better), and use a leave in conditioner. If you really want to blow dry your hair, use a diffuser on it!!! Put something in your hair to give it a better hold, I use a special curl creme but there's also this foam stuff or gel like products for curly hair.  Hold your head upside down and gently put the blow dryer in and out of the curls. When you're done, you should have a lot less frizz. For me I spray a bit of hairspray in it afterwards to give it some extra volume.

Oh and buy a good hair mask that you can do like once a week or so, that also really helped me :)

You can get oil sprays which are much lighter and feel so nice and help shape your curls as well!
