10 ways to manage those unruly curls! curly hair
1. Don't wash every day!
Try conditioning in between washes, you will get more moisture to those naturally dry curls
2. Try a low or no laurel sulfate cleanser.
Cleansers high in Laurel Sulfate are drying to anyone’s hair, and naturally curly hair tends to be more dry than others.
3. Leave in some conditioner.
Rinse your hair in shower but leave some conditioner in. It will give you more moisture.
4 .Towel dry with a cotton Tee-Shirt or a baby diaper or even paper towels.
These items do not have a rough edge and you should squeeze out moisture NOT RUB! You will rough up the cuticle and add frizz if you rub to much.
5. Add a "liquid gel" to moist hair.
Flip your head upside down and apply. You need even distribution of product and by being upside done and scrunching it in helps with this.
6. LEAVE IT ALONE!
Resist touching while drying! The more you touch the more you separate the curls.
7. Use a hood dryer, dry naturally or use a diffuser.
REMEMBER For really curly frizz easy hair NO TOUCHING

Spray it in your hands,
flip over and scrunch. You will get hold, shine and less frizz through out your day.

10. ENJOY YOUR CURL! Stop blow-drying the bangs, let it all go natural!

This service includes a curl coaching session and a personalized Curl product prescription that makes it easy to maintain your style at home.
How do I prepare for a Curl by Curl Cut?
Please arrive at the salon with your curls washed within 72-48 hours, detangled and styled with your current products, avoiding ALL oils.
Most importantly make sure your hair is dry. Before your appointment, it’s best to let your hair hang loosely—avoid ponytail holders or clips. If you have stretched your curls, we are not able to see them. You may have as much product in your hair that is needed to style. It is important for us to observe each curl individually, and to see how it relates to the head as a whole. Your natural wave pattern will serve as a guide to your cut.
What should I expect at my appointment?
After consultation and examination of hair, we cut the hair dry reading each curl as we go along. Then we cleanse, detox if needed, hydrate, and style. we will educate you as we go along so you will have success at home recreating your best curls.
After your hair is dried under a hood dryer and or diffused ,we will check for any adjustments that need to be made.
How Long will I be at the salon?
