Me and my curls at the Buzzfeed Headquarters
I have curly hair, but like many guys, I never really knew how to take care of it! Generally I just quickly shampoo and run out the door.
The Morning Before – Sad Curls!
I walked in and was greeted by my stylist/curl guru, Vincent. I was so excited to get things started!
Getting my Curl Consultation from Vincent
Letting my curls dry slowly. It’s the healthy way to go!
The After Results! I even had time to stop by the Ouidad Corporate Office….
Here are some tips I learned from Vincent that all curly guys can use….
1. Hot water is bad for my hair! I learned that you really shouldn’t wash your hair with hot water. If I want to take a hot shower, then I should first wash my hair with colder or luke warm water.
2. Make sure you REALLY rinse the conditioner out of your hair. I had no idea how important it was to really wash all of the conditioner out for my curl type. Tighter curl patterns or dry/dehydrated curls can leave a bit in for extra moisture!
