For silky curls the first and foremost thing that you need to do is to have a healthy lifestyle. Have a balance diet. Rest ample. Try to avoid stress as much as you can. If you feel that your curls are drying up, then you can go in for a daily oil massage to moisturize your hair. You can also apply a heavy conditioner after wash. People with curly hair need to avoid shampoos as much as they can. It makes their hair more frizzy. You will often end up in tangles. When you do shampoo you must use one that will moisturize and soften your hair. If alcohol is one of the ingredients of your shampoo, then make sure that you stop using it at once. Alcohol will further dry up your hair. Use shampoos that have a low PH level.
Do not comb your hair when it is wet. Wet hair is more prone to breakage. Use a wide toothed comb that will slide through your wet hair easily. If you are using a brush, then try and use a soft one. It is preferable that you use silk pillow cases as hair tends to get caught in cotton ones.
