5 Summer Hair Tips for the Curly Girls!

Here at StyleBell, we know that when it comes to curls -- the struggle is REAL. We also know that the summer only adds to this problem. This is why we've decided to round up our favorite summer hair tips for curls that are easy enough for everyone to do and we are sure that you will see a difference in your hair!
1.) Skip Harsh Towels! Scrunching your hair with towels roughs up your cuticle and causes curls to lay unequally leading to frizz and less bouncy curls. We recommend investing in a curl towel or using an old t-shirt to pat hair dry.
2.) Comb with Your Fingers. Skipping combs and brushes allows curls to start forming the second you get out of the shower. Using a light leave-in conditioner spray helps detangle hair with your fingers and allows curls to form naturally, beautifully, and as full and frizz-free as possible!
3.) Use Cream or Oil Based Products. We love cream and oil based products simply for their hydrating properties and in the summer heat, they tend to warm up as your hair does in the humidity and reactivate themselves, unlike drying foams or mousses.
4.) Skip Heavy Hairsprays. In the summer, heavy hold hair sprays have the same stiff and drying affect as mousses and foams. If you can't live without hairspray (which we recommend for summer curls to leave them loose, natural and beachy) then we recommend using a light hold hairspray and only use enough to keep fly-away's at bay. You'd be surprised how much your natural curls will hold up without it!
5.) AVOID Sea Salt Sprays. Although sea salt sprays have the tendency to make those ladies with straight or wavy hair achieve gorgeous beach waves without consequences, too much sea salt can wreak havoc on curly hair. Curly hair tends to be more fragile therefore making it less capable of handling the drying effects of sea salt on a daily basis. If, like me, you've already become addicted to this spray on product, try cutting the solution in half. Grab a cheap spray bottle and divide the contents of the product bottle in two then dilute it with water. This will give you the same benefits with MUCH less drying.
