Waking up with picture-perfect curls isn’t always realistic. Something I obviously know nothing about but... I have asked around and got some goods for those of you who do! Sometimes girls with curls have to put in a little extra work to tame and maintain their hair and TBH, it isn’t always easy. For days (or weeks) when your curls just won’t work with you, here’s how to handle seven of the most relatable hair struggles for girls with curls. I got you, boo!
THE STRUGGLE: WAKING UP AN HOUR (OR TWO) EARLY JUST TO STYLE YOUR HAIR.
It’s time to hit the snooze button! Instead of spending your morning tied to your diffuser, let an air-dry cream do all the work. If you have coarser curls, reach for Monat Air Dry Cream to help style and manage your hair while it’s damp. The cream is formulated to allow the hair to dry quickly while controlling frizz. Think of it as your easy, secret weapon for those days you just can’t - even with your curls.
THE STRUGGLE: YOUR CURLS DEFLATE FASTER THAN A HOT AIR BALLOON.
There’s nothing more upsetting than watching your gorgeous, bouncy curls deflate throughout the day. Instead of watching your spirals fall flat, revitalize your hair by using Monat Dry Texturizing Spray. This lightweight spray helps to boost lazy curls by adding body, structure, and shine to define your hair without stickiness or frizz. And o the smell.
THE STRUGGLE: HUMIDITY IS YOUR HAIR’S WORST NIGHTMARE.
Glued to your weather app in hopes that humidity isn’t in the forecast? Protect your curls against Mother Nature by using Monat Studio One Curl Defining Cream. This curl-defining gel helps to keep your curls looking their best no matter what the weather. Later, hats and hair ties—you’re no longer needed.
THE STRUGGLE: YOUR HAIR FEELS LIKE STRAW.
Softening dry hair isn’t always that easy. If using thick conditioners in your routine isn’t helping your hair, you may want to consider using products that help to even out your hair’s porosity. Since curly hair tends to be highly porous (a.k.a it sucks up a lot of moisture), it can be hard to properly hydrate. To help smooth and soften your hair, look for products that can help normalize that porosity and help your hair retain as much hydration as possible. An easy way to do this is by using Monat Super Nourish Oil Creme Duo. Not only can this product help even out your hair’s porosity, but it also can help to detangle, nourish and hydrate drier hair.
THE STRUGGLE: BRUSHING YOUR HAIR IS NEVER AN OPTION.
TBH, you should probably avoid brushing your curls when they’re dry. Not only is this going to break up your curl pattern, but it’s also going to cause loads of frizz. To avoid this, detangle your hair in the shower. After you apply your regular conditioner, use a wide-tooth comb to gently remove knots or tangles. Remember to work from the bottom of your hair upward in order to avoid excess breakage.
THE STRUGGLE: YOUR CURL PATTERN IS LOST UNDER A MOUNTAIN OF FRIZZ.
Frizzy hair, don’t care? Yeah, not so much. Get your curls back on fleek by using the FOC method. FOC stands for Frizz Fix, Oil, and Curl Cream, and it’s the method in which you should be applying to your locks if you want to keep frizz at bay all day long. Start by using Monat Frizz Fix Smoothing Primer to help define and prime your curls. Next, reach for Monat Rejuvnique Oil to help soften and nourish your hair. Finally, finish with Monat Studio One Curl Defining Cream to help seal in moisture and lock out humidity.
THE STRUGGLE: CONSTANTLY HAVING PEOPLE BE JEALOUS OF YOUR #FLAWLESS CURLS.
Rock those curls! Period!
