Ringlets colored rosy
Can’t control with bowsies.
Thrashes and clashes —
Mama breaks down.
Do your girl’s curls have you going in circles? Salon Red Kids stylist Jodi Anderson has these hair-taming tips.
Scrimp on Suds
Wash curly hair less often because it takes longer for the oil from the scalp to get to the strands’ ends. Also, always use conditioner: moisture reduces that electric-shock look.
Use a wide-tooth comb and a lot of detangling product on wet hair. To avoid flyaways, don’t touch or brush once it dries.
When combing hair out, section it, then start at the ends and work toward the scalp. Take smaller sections as you get closer.
That’s giving it to you straight.
