With greater power comes greater responsibility.
Sounds familiar? Well, among the other two types of hair texture, curly hair has proven time and again to be the most high-maintenance. Leave it un-moisturized for long and you’ll soon wind up with annoying frizzies. Apply too much moisturizer to it repeatedly and it will become greasy or even start breaking. So, what are the best hair care tips for curls? Ask no more, WiseBarber is here to share with you the complete hair care guide for guys with curly hair. Get it below.

1. Wash With Moisturizing Shampoo 3-4 Times In A Week
If you’ve been washing your hair with shampoos that contain sulfate or you’re not consistent with washing your hair, it’s likely to become dry, frizzy, and dirty. Studies have revealed that sulfate strips the hair of its natural oil. Similarly, leaving your hair unwashed for days prepares the ground for hair problems. Going forward, always wash your curly hair with a moisturizing shampoo 3-4 times a week.
2. Apply Curl Creams
Curly hair is special and should be treated as such. So, if you’ve been applying regular hair cream to your curls, it won’t do you much good. Opt for a curl-defining hair cream to enhance your hair, make it shine, soften it, and add definition to it.
3. Go Big On Curl Conditioner
Stop conditioning your curls the old way. Start using curl conditioners to get your hair more elastic and frizz-free. These curl-branded conditioners are also infused with ingredients that make it easy to detangle the hair. Overall, curl conditioners will strengthen and define your curls by intensively conditioning the from the inside out.
4. Keep Your Hands Off
Bad habit, let’s put an end to it, shall we? If you’re in the habit of pulling at your hair, finger-twisting it, or stressing out your curls in any other unhealthy way, give it up. The thing is that the less you mess with your hair, the stronger the curls grow from the root. Consider this as a natural way to avoid hair loss.
5. Say Goodbye To Blow Dryers Or Go Easy
The truth that most curly hair men fail to acknowledge is that curly hair is fragile. So, blow-drying yours aggressively at a high temperature can give you breakage, cause split-ends, and damage your hair in other ways possible. If you must use a blowdryer, always use the medium or low heat level otherwise, dump that machine already.
Choose Your Barber Carefully
A good barber or hairstylist makes all the difference. Except you’re 100% a DIYer, grooming your hair all by yourself at home, you need to be careful when choosing a barber. But how should you go about it? Well, here are some two tips; ask for recommendations (from other guys with curly hair) and try to know the barbershop culture before trusting them with your curls and money.
Curly hair is delicate though it opens you to a lot of hair styling possibilities and allows you to spruce up your beauty creatively.
