Combing indian curly hair

Curly hair is known to tangle faster. To keep your Indian curly hair detangled, use a wide-tooth comb or a detangling brush on damp hair. Work through in sections across the length of extensions. Complete Detangling can make everything from washing to styling much easier.

2. Daily Moisturization

Moisture is essential for keeping your curls in place. Indian curly hair that are moisturized are better able to hold their shape and are less prone to frizz, which helps minimize tangling and reduces detangling time.

Spritz your Indian curly hair with water daily to aid in product absorption, and then follow up with a curly-specific leave-in conditioner. Avoid products that contain strong alcohols and silicones, which can cause hair to become exceedingly stiff and dry.

3. Shampooing and conditioning Indian curly hair

Never underestimate the significance of having a clean hair extension! Shampoo at least once a week using a moisturizing, sulfate-free shampoo to keep curly hair extensions fresh.

To avoid tangling, wash your Indian curly hair in a downward direction. After that apply a moisture-rich conditioner next, massage it with the same downward motion.

Spread the conditioner evenly with your fingertips or  use your favorite detangling instrument, to ensure that each curl receives the moisture it needs.

On your Indian curly hair curls, it is critical to use a mild shampoo free of hazardous compounds such as parabens, sulfates, and alcohol.

Sulfates are foaming agents, whereas parabens are preservatives that can make your hair extensions look and feel rough.

Switch to mild surfactants and sulfate-, paraben-, and fragrance-free shampoo compositions especially on your human hair extensions.

Bonus method: Work on your hair extensions, dilute your shampoo and low-lather cleansing conditioner with water before using them.

This keeps you from wasting too much product, which is excellent for both your hair extensions and your wallet.

4. Thorough Conditioning

Deep conditioning Indian curly hair extensions can make a significant difference in the longevity of your curly weave.

For hot oil treatments, look for nourishing hair masques and oils like argan or babassu.

Coat hair in portions, twisting them to avoid tangling, before putting on a plastic cap for around 30 minutes.

Sit under a hooded dryer to improve moisture intake for a better result.

5. Styling Indian curly hair

Styling Indian hair extensions

One of the best things about curly hair is that it can be styled on its own, but if you want to manage your curls through styling, you must be delicate.

This involves detangling your weave well before style to reduce needless stress and pulling whether you're blowing it out, twisting it, or Bantu-knotting it.

6. Sleep and avoid tangles in your curls with Plaits

Use cotton pillowcases to avoid being a morning frizz monster, plait your Indian curly hair  or do a pineapple on dry hair before covering it in a silk or satin head scarf at night.

7. Use a neutralizing shampoo to prevent the chemicals from destroying your hair.

12. Don't use too much shampoo

Avoid excessive use of shampoo

 Curly hair is prone to drying out rapidly. Excessive shampooing might deplete your hair's natural oil.

Also, make sure your conditioner contains hydrating elements. Conditioning aids in sealing and protecting your hair's cuticle against environmental harm.

13. Pretreatment is necessary

Pretreatment of curly hair is important

For those with Indian curly hair, a pre-shampoo treatment is appropriate. It aids in the removal of frizz and detangling of your hair.

Separate your hair into sections and apply a conditioning oil or hair mask to each region. Leave the conditioner on your hair for 20 minutes.

Use a shower towel to trap the heat to open up the cuticle and guarantee that the conditioner penetrates your hair thoroughly.

14. Dry curly hair with a diffuser

Use a diffuser

Curly hair care includes learning to dry curls gently and minimally.

When blow-drying your hair, don’t directly do it, still interested, use a diffuser (which eliminates frizz by uniformly spreading heat) but don't over-dry: dry out the majority of the water but leave the rest to air dry.

15. Brush your hair as little as possible

Minimal brushing of curls


Avoid brushing curls, even if it goes against everything you've done so far. Brushing curly hair is too rough since it pulls off the natural curl, making your curls lose definition and making your Indian curly hair frizzy.

When untangling your hair, it's preferable to do so when it's still wet. Also, while your hair is dry, avoid brushing it.

Start at the ends and work your way up with a wide-toothed comb to prevent hair fall.

Curly hair care

 Excessive heat on unprotected curls can result in damaged hair that doesn't grow quickly, flat curls that can't breathe well, and, once again, dry strands.

Additionally, using a protectant makes your hair lustrous and soft. Spray some on your hair, and it will be moisturized and protected from damage.

 After you've arranged your hair to perfection, spritz it with some flexible hairspray for enviable grip and movement that lasts all day.

Take Care of your curly tresses

 After you've washed your Indian curly hair and it's slightly damp, split it into small sections and gently comb out each portion of your locks with a brush or a broad tooth comb.

Apply a leave-in conditioner or curl activator solution to your hair right now. In any case, your curls will naturally take shape, so don't use too much product in your hair.

It is critical to remember not to scrunch your Indian curly hair with your hands to reform your curls. The reason for this is that, as we mentioned in previous postings, rubbing your hair against different portions of your hair causes cuticle breaking.

Instead, work your fingers through small parts of your Indian curly hair at a time, from roots to tips. Because you've already lightly brushed your hair, it should be fairly simple. Shake your moist hair back and forth to produce extra curls if it isn't too wet.

The purpose of this technique is to keep your Indian curly hair healthy and strong while preventing frizz.

Letting your hair to air dry as much as possible is one of the best things you can do for it, and keep in mind that heat dries it out and produces frizz.

Using a hair conditioner on a daily basis will nourish and moisturize your Indian curly hair.

Overdoing it will clog your pores and make your hair and scalp oily. Deep conditioning your hair three to four times per month will prolong the life of your extensions.

Another Piece of advice on Indian curly hair

Your curls will take shape if you use a blow dryer with a diffuser set on low heat. In any case, keep the blow dryer on a modest heat and power level.

The worst thing you can do is harm your Indian curly hair extensions by scorching your locks and damaging your tips.

Split ends are caused by breaking and losing crucial nutrients when your hair is harmed at the tips.

Even curly hair extensions can be straightened with a straightener. After you've straightened your Indian curly hair, do a deep conditioning treatment during your next hair wash, or use a product that preserves your tresses as you straighten them.

When it's time to wash your hair again, or if you're sick of your temporary straight locks, wash your hair again, and your curls will return shortly as they dry naturally, and you've followed our hair care guidelines.

With curls, you can be sassy and cute, or a diva going out with her friends on a night out in a straight hairdo.

Extensions allow you to choose from a range of styles, and whatever you choose (straight, curly, or wavy), treat your tresses with care, and they will remain attractive and strong in return.


Curly hair requires only the right hair treatment to bring out its distinct definition and structure. Invest in curl-specific hair products and a healthy hair care routine, and stick to a consistent hair care routine for beautiful curls every day.
