For some popping curls, put your hair in a super-high and loose ponytail before you hit the bed. This technique gets it's name from how your high and loose pony should look when on your head. You may look silly going to bed, but you'll wake up with naturally gorgeous curls.
Try the No-Poo Challenge
This is also known as co-washing, or washing your hair without shampoo. Curly hair is usually dry and shampoo strips the hair of its natural oils. Use apple cider vinegar to get rid of product build up and excess oil then finish with conditioner. Many girls swear by it!
Switch To a T-Shirt
Instead of using a rough towel to dry your hair, try an old t-shirt. The material is softer which will reduce frizz and breakage. Gently wrap the end of your hair in the shirt and squeeze out the excess water.
Brushes can damage your precious , fragile curls, creating frizz and split ends. No one wants that. Instead try wide-tooth combs or your fingers to gently work through knots.
Sleep on Satin
All that tossing and turning in your sleep can do some real damage to your luxurious locks. A satin or silk pillowcase will protect your curls all night long. You will no longer wake up to frizzy or flat hair.
DIY Conditioning Cleanser
These products can be really expensive. Luckily, you can make your own conditioning cleansers at home. Just start by mixing your shampoo and conditioner together by taking equal proportions. Dilute the mixture with water and use this concoction on your hair.
Soap Instead Of Shampoo
Start your curly hair regime by going totally sulfate free. Use a natural soap instead of those high chemical shampoos. You will find many options of good all-natural soap bars that you can use both on body and hair. This will improve your hair texture for better curls.
Don’t Rinse All Your Conditioner
For better curls, don’t rinse out the conditioner that you apply on your hair. Instead, just stand under the water for a few seconds and allow the conditioners to run through your hair as a leave-in cream. This provides a much better texture for hair curls.
Upgrade Your Conditioner With Oil

Refresh With Leave-In Conditioner
Use your leave-in hair conditioner and revive your curls. You don’t need to wash your hair every day' it's actually better to wash it every two to three days. Remember that curly hair needs less washing.
Use A Creamy Gel
If you use a leave-in conditioner, then mix it with gel. You can use all natural aloe gel for this purpose. Choose the proportions based on your requirement and add more or less gel as you see fit.
Your hair needs deep-conditioning too. Apply a homemade mask or conditioners to damp hair and wrap it with a towel or shower cap. Allow hot steam to penetrate your hair and condition it thoroughly. After a few minutes, pull off the cap and rinse out.
