Curls may get the girls – but that doesn't mean they shouldn't be tamed! For guys wanting to style their luscious curly mop, your cut, technique and product selection need to be spot on. Here's how to get the job done right!
Caring For Curly Hair
All guys with curly hair know one thing's for sure: curly locks can sometimes have a mind of their own! However what you may not realize is that curly hair is often naturally drier than straight hair, which could be the explanation behind why it's sometimes prone to doing its own thing. More than any other hair type, it's important to use products that will infuse moisture into your mane. Check out the L'Oréal Professionnel Nutrifier line (no, it's not just for girls!) because the shampoo, conditioner and even the hair mask are brilliant for giving curly locks a hydration hit.
Taming Long Curly Hair
Curly haired gents may prefer a longer style because it gives weight to their curls. However when the hair is longer, it does run the risk of entering into frizz town territory. To keep your curls under control and frizz-free, try using a curl cream like the L'Oréal Professionnel Dual Stylers Bouncy and Tender Gel. Just work it through wet hair before blow drying for defined yet smooth curls.
Taming Short Curly Hair
Lads with shorter hair will probably find that their curls tend to coil and curve inwards toward themselves. If you want these tight curls to look a little looser and wavier, a great haircut is the answer. Your stylist will be able to shape your hair in a way that allows the curls to lie smooth and flat against the head – and therefore, are less likely to result in tight curls. And don't forget, there are plenty of hair styling products out there like waxes or gels that can slick your curls into place.
