What To Do When Your Curls Are knotty And Horrible

Whether you’ve got curly hair or not, we all have the days where we wake up and our hair is knotty, crunchy and just feels and looks disgusting. Sometime we have time to wash our hair and add mouse etc, but other times we need to get out the house and go to school or somewhere else in a hurry. Here are a few tricks to help you hide and fix your disgusting curls.

1. Wet your hair

You may not have time to completely wash your hair, but simply wetting the curls will flatten frizziness and allow you to brush through the knots. If you have a bit more time, wash the hair in a sink. This is faster than taking a whole shower and gets the same end result.

2. Put your hair in a messy bun

Messy buns are ideal for messy curls as it hide the curls and, if done properly, has a really pretty casual look. When doing a messy bun, you want to place it near the top of your head but not to near the front. To add more volume and messiness you can brush through your curls as this will create thick frizziness which will make the bun a lot bigger.

3. Simply put the hair in a ponytail

Putting your hair in a ponytail won’t get rid of the disgusting curls, but it will make it less in your face and not as obviously messy. Like the messy bun put the ponytail fairly high on your hair but not quite as high, as the actual curls in the ponytail will cover your face. If you like you can pull out some wispies at the front and add an accessory of your choice.

4. Brush out the knots

Brushing is something that is not recommended for curly hair as it makes your hair go frizzy. I would normally agree but personally, I would rather have frizzy hair than knotty hair. If you brush your hair it will get rid of the knots, and the frizz from the brushing will die down, and if you wet it with some water it will eliminate the frizz all together. Also if you brush your hair, you can then put it in a messy bun or ponytail, showed in step three and four.

I hope this post was helpful and you will have more luck fixing and hiding disgusting curls.

How I Achieve My Best Curls

When I’m going out or have some spare time before meeting up with friends I like to have perfect curls. For me the system to getting the ideal look takes time, which is why sometimes my curls will be a mess and I will just put it in a ponytail. But if you have a spare 45 minutes to an hour then this is a great idea for achieving the perfect curls.

I start by washing my hair with shampoo, to get rid of the clump that my hair has molded into and wash away the dirt. I use Kérastase Nutrative Shampoo. I just find it really soft on my hair but sometimes I like to use shampoo for curly hair but I ran out so I’ve been sticking with the shampoo from Kérastase.

After I’ve washed my hair I brush through it while it’s still wet as it won’t fatten the curls or go frizzy while the hair is still wet. It will get rid of the knots and just make your hair feel a lot nicer. Once your hair is brushed through leave it to dry naturally. This is the most time consuming part, but allowing it to dry naturally will create nicer curls and prevent the hair from going frizzy. You can dry it slightly with a towel but only at the beginning of the drying process, but don’t use any heat.

Once my hair is dry, I tip my head upside down, run my fingers through the curls and give my head a bit of a shake. This give my hair a more full and natural look. After I’ve shaken my head around a bit, I tilt my head again and apply some moose to the curls. I don’t use very much other wise it will dampen my hair and make the curls look wet. The moose just helps give some volume to my hair and make the curls last longer. You can also use curl spray of curl cream if you prefer.

Finally, I adjust the curls to how I’d like the them. I usually do a parting with a pin-tail comb, to the right of my head. i don’t have to much hair over on the left side, because otherwise all the hair will just cover my face. I then add an accessory to the look but this is optional. I normally add a bow, flower or simply a headband to accessorize the curls.

I hope you found this post useful and will try out some of my tricks to achieving the perfect curls.
