Setting lotion in curls can give you a good hold and can be diluted with water for a softer hold. If your hair is thicker a heaver gel type product can be used for a smoother curl texture.

How to Have Shiny Curls
Liquid shine in the hair before and after drying will work fine for most hair. A non oil base spray shine is great for curly hair that doesn't react well with oils. If you can't find an oil free shine spray go to a wig store.

They differently have them for their human and synthetic wigs.Sleep in a large satin hair bonnet to avoid drying out your hair on your sheet and pillow cases or satin pillow cases.

Conditioning
Keeping curly hair moisturized is very important because of all the products used to help it hold. Water may calm it down but it has nothing to add shine nor moisture. Once dried you will have dull and dry hair. Add leave in conditioners and moisturizers to your spray bottle it has a little hold and shine to them.

How To Straighten Curly Hair
If your hair can be set, you can have it set on the grey or purple large rollers then wrap in around your head. This is called a doobie. Spray the shine oil and go under dryer 10 more minutes. Comb out to wonderful straight hair. You will have great bounce and body that will last all week.

If your hair is too curly for a set you can use a ceramic iron. But always use a moisturizing smoothing product made for ceramic iron to evenly distribute this quality flat ironing method.Always be mindful of retaining moisture in your hair.

How To Trim Curly Hair
Trimming the ends keeps your hair very controllable and groomed by removing those dry straggly ends. Your hair will detangle better and have less shedding if your trimming is maintained at least every two months. If your hair has never been trimmed you may have a little more cutting to do to achieve a groomed look when straightened out.

It's hard to have groomed curls and notice growth if your hair is breaking faster than it's growing. This is why bi-monthly trimming is so important. Those awful ends will break up your hair shaft just like a torn pair of stockings making your hair look unhealthy and not groomed.

FYI: It's best to trim extra curly hair when wet and in some cases while straight for more control.
You now have a foundation to maintain your beautiful curly hair. Yes your hair is beautiful, just misunderstood.
Enjoy!
