Sometimes, it is not possible to manage curly hair as they may have very small curls. The volume of your hair maybe huge. Therefore, a proper hair care planning is a must. Short hairstyles can give you a smart, elegant, and gorgeous look. Try to avoid haircuts that need blow drying.
Naturally Curly
A good haircut can be done when there is plenty of room to play around with your hair. You must decide about the length as per your choice before cutting your hair since your hair will shrink when it dries up. Curly haircuts should be layered so that they look better. Natural curls should always be softened with conditioners, relaxing balm, and heavyweight gel.
Chemically Permed
In case your hair is short but doesn't have good volume, then you can opt for the chemically permed hairstyle. Before a perm, your hair has a natural shape and texture with physical bonds. The chemical of the perm solution manages to break this bond and hold a new shape, that of the rods with which you wrap your hair around. Ultimately the neutralizer reforms the physical bonds for the new shape to last.
Tips to Maintain Curly Hair
 Certain hairstyling products are good for hair. Apply gel, hairspray, or mousse to hold the hair in place when your hair is wet, or let it dry naturally.
 The use of shampoo and moisturizing conditioner will help moisturize your hair. Smoothly rub the moisturizer on your head before washing it. Deep moisturizer can be used once a month.
 Try to avoid hair dryers and let your hair dry naturally, else they may become kinky. Do not brush or rub your hair hard; chances of hair loss may arise.
 Use wide tooth combs for brushing your hair. You can use your fingers too to smoothly comb the tangled hair.
 Short curls must be made to cut into its volume. The proper use of hair fixates, surface silkeners, and hair pomades can settle down and maintain the grooming unruly curly hair. Short hairstyles can give you a stylish appearance if done and maintained in the proper manner.
 You must focus on having a healthy diet to keep your hair good too. Eat food that gives you a good amount of proteins. This will surely add a natural shine to your hair.
The short haircuts should be done in such a way that it should complement your overall personality. This can hide your low points such as marks or pimples on your face. Having curls can give you a trendy look, and in some cases it can even make a person look younger. Love your hair, 'coz not all have these beautiful, natural curls that you have. Cheers!
