I wish I could help, but unfortunately I have the same problem.:(
You can’t really try many hairstyles with curly hair… Sometimes I do a sideway braid (or i used to when my hair was longer). It actually looks pretty good(: Also I’ve tried a sideway ponytail. It creates crazy style! You can try a sideway bun too! this is how i made it with my hair -http://i53.tinypic.com/35dara1.jpg
i hope i helped u. Even if curly hair is just the worst thing ever!:Dposted over 5 years ago
I think you should embrass you curly texturse. I have extremely tightly coiled hair and for girls like us the more we straighten our hait the more it becomes dry frizzy and damaged. I think you should stay away from the hot tools and and overdose on leave in conditioners and your hair will start to look and feel better with less frizz as for styles.
Scarfs are my best friend, check out taren 916 on youtube she has some massivly curly hair and styles it so cute on cam.
I did the whole thing from tv with the lady that specializes in curly hair…used the conditioner, put in the gell, let it dry naturally…but if I worked out, or had to shower later in the day, it was dinner time and I still had damp hair. SO now, it is cut off….super short on the sides, and as messy as it wants to be on top…I may even get a lightening bolt shaved in this summer. freedom.
but if you want to grow it long and let it be curly, you have to embrase the mess. put the goo on and then leave it alone. I had people stop me because they loved it (and paid money to try and get it….) but in the end after years of it, I got tired of it…
you should start with a good haircut. long layers for curly hair works best as it will provide some weight to hold the curl down and not create a giant poofy hairdo! I use creams and mousse from garnier fructis when wet and then apply more as it dries to tame the frizz. Braiding the front and pinning it back is always cute same with a half up/half down style and just wearing a cute headband. I love ones with bows and flowers which can really play up the romantic image of curlsposted over 5 years ago
Embrace your beautiful locks, girl! I have curly hair too and I found that using the Tresemme Curly Hair products tame my curls and keep them bouncy.posted over 5 years ago
Thanks so much guys. All of your advice has been so useful! Have any of you heard of the french ponytail? I think it’s a great way to play up the classic pony.posted over 5 years ago
Oh I love the french pony!!!! I really love the fishtail braid, actually with your hair it’d be easier to do, because it’d be easier to separate strands of your hair, you should try it!posted over 5 years ago
I have really really super curly hair. Curly hair is easier to manage when it is short. Mine used to be up to my jaw line. It is a perfect length. I wouldn’t reccomend going much shorter than that. I changed my style again after that and it looks really good. I have my hair a shoulderish length at the front, then as it goes round the back it gets shorter and is layered. Talk to your hairdresser! If you want something different, they’ll do something that is perfect for you hair! They will understand!

high messy bun. low bun and add feathers. fishtail braid. side braid. half up half down. all down and bring the front pieces back by braiding them or twisting them, secure with bobby pins.
also, buy a satin pillow case. dryer sheets help a little with flyaways. pure, unrefined coconut oil is your best friend. try not to use gel, it’s terrible for your hair. don’t pull it back when it’s wet, it breaks the hair. use sulfate and sodium hydroxide free shampoos and any other thing you may put in your hair. also, this may sound weird, but try leave in conditioners from the ethnic aisle. they know where it’s at hahaposted over 5 years ago

A style I like to do when my hair is out of control is the milkmaid braid. It’s simple, and when you frame your face with your curly locks, it’s so lovely. With a red lip and cat eye… Meow!;)posted over 4 years ago
