Not your curl type?

Tight Curls

A mixture of 1/2" to 1" wide curls throughout the hair.

With an overall pattern of small corkscrews, tightly curled hair tends to be full and densely packed, yet often fine in texture. Because it is susceptible to dryness and frizz if not cared for properly, it is vital when conditioning and styling to thoroughly condition with the proper type of nourishment.

Ouidad’s Tight Curly Hair Tips

Tight curly hair needs extra moisture because it is delicate. A monthly deep treatment regimen is essential to maintain the hair’s health and shine

Reduce tangles by sleeping on a satin pillowcase

Let hair air dry or use a hair dryer on low heat with a diffuser

Ouidad’s Tight Curly Hair Tips

Prior to styling, apply a leave in conditioner and comb through with a wide tooth comb or fingers to create a moisture foundation

Do not use a brush or comb on your dry curls which will cause the hair to expand and contribute to frizz

Ouidad’s Tight Curly Hair Tips

Detangle with a conditioner in your hair and use a wide tooth comb or the Double Detangler

To enhance curls once they are dry, rub a little pomade into the palm of your hands and smooth over your hair gently. This will add a shine and tame any stray fly-aways.
