Each season brings a new set of rules — from how we dress to the products we put in our hair. But when it comes to curl care, it’s a year-round affair. Curly and coily hair textures benefit from consistent care with targeted products. To ensure your curls look best next season, it’s time to start that curl routine now. From instant moisture to long-term improvement — here are our top tips for caring for your curly and coily hair.

10 Tips for Curly and Coily Hair

  1. Add Moisture: Curly and coily hair can naturally be drier than other hair types. This is why using products formulated to hydrate the hair is key. Added moisture helps cut down on damage and breakage while also helping to define and refine natural texture.
  2. Use curl and coil-specific products. Specially formulated products — like the new Redken All Soft Mega Curls — are ideal for adding moisture, curl definition, hydration, and frizz control.
  3. Detangle: Whether in the shower or directly after, finding a comb or brush that works well to detangle your hair type is key. To protect the hair and achieve the best results, apply a leave-in conditioner like Redken All Soft Mega Curls Hyrdramelt first.
  4. Skip the shampoo: Washing too often can strip hair of natural oils — which curly and coily hair benefits from. Think about skipping the shampoo altogether or doing a mini cleanse followed by a moisturizing conditioner to hydrate the hair.
  5. Deep condition often: Whether once a week or every few weeks — deep conditioning the hair helps replenish moisture and softness to your strands. Extra moisture cuts down on frizz and leads to healthier hair with a more refined texture.
  6. Air-dry: Regular or excessive heat styling can easily damage curly and coily hair. To encourage your natural texture, avoid blow-drying, curling, straightening, and air-drying hair as much as possible. You’ll notice that with time your natural texture definition will improve.
  7. Protect while you sleep. Using a silk or satin pillowcase or scarf while sleeping helps reduce friction and frizz.
  8. Get regular trims: finding a trusted stylist to help trim and shape your hair is critical. By trimming off split or dry ends and regularly shaping the hair you’ll notice more bounce and a better finish.
  9. Use protective hairstyles: whether you’re looking for a change or a way to cut down on heat styling, protective hairstyles are a great way to embrace your texture without using heat to style it. From braids to twists and buns, there are endless ways to style your hair while cutting down on damage, breakage, or tangles.
  10. Reactivate instead of restyling. Instead of starting over, prep and style hair with products targeted for re-activation, like Redken All Soft Mega Curls Hydramelt. With nourishment, definition, and shine lasting up to 72 hours for a soft and shiny finish, this leave-in helps improve manageability and reduce frizz.
