The Best Hair Solutions for Naturally Curly Hair

In the past, we’ve covered the best hair solutions for both thick, coarse hair and fine, thin hair. In this article we are going to take a deep dive into what makes hair curly and the best products and services to keep your curls moisturized, bouncy and frizz-free!

The low down on curly hair

Like most hair types, curly hair really does start at the roots. Curly hair is a dominant genetic trait found in individuals with a family history of curly hair. As a dominant trait, it means that if you have two curly hair genes and two straight hair genes, you’ll end up with curly hair.

Digging deeper into the science, the shape of the hair follicle will identify the shape of the curl itself and how tight it is. What really makes curly hair composition different from straight hair is the way the cells divide and certain proteins that give the hair fibers an elliptical shape, resulting in curly hair.

The level of curl in hair can differ depending on factors like aging, environment, hormones, and genetics. Things like humidity can cause hair that’s often flat in dryer climates to coil, and as you age your curls may change shape or loosen. The texture of your hair also plays a big role in the tightness and longevity of your curls.

Beyond natural curls, achieving a curly look can also be done through the art of permanents, or “perms”. Just be wary that considering your hair type, this process could cause breakage and hair dryness.
