Curly Hair Do's and Don'ts!

Bouncy and defined curls is what most of us aim for when we try and style our naturally curly hair! But it doesn’t always work that way as heat, humidity and using the wrong products can wreak havoc with your natural hair texture. Sometimes you need a bit of help with how to care for your curly locks and Kidzworld has some handy do’s and don’t that curly haired girls should follow for the healthiest and shiniest locks while letting your hair’s natural texture shine through!. Here are our top curly hair care tips!


  • 1. Don’t brush your hair. Curly hair is a lot more prone to breakage because the hair cuticle is facing in different directions. Brushing it can cause hair breakage. Be gentle with your hair!
  • 2. Hair care experts all agree that you should shampoo your hair as infrequently as possible. If you have fine hair you can wash it every other day but concentrate on your scalp. For medium to thick hair you can get away with using shampoo once a week and only rinsing your hair with water on other days.
  • 3. Trim your hair every three months. This keeps the ends looking fresh and healthy, especially if your hair is prone to dryness!

  • 4. Styling tip: To redefine your curls, after a hot shower stay in there a few more minutes to let the steam soak into your hair. This will rejuvenate your curls - apply styling cream to your hair as soon as you get out of the shower.

  • 5. If you have long hair, cut long layers into it to lighten it and make it look less bottom heavy. Be careful not to cut layers that are too short or you could end up with overly puffy hair! The shortest should be at your chin.
  • 6. Don’t let anyone cut your hair with a razor. This technique roughens up the hair cuticle and makes it prone to frizziness.
  • 7. Use moisturizing hair products that contain ingredients like shea butter, palm oil and avocado oil. Look for hair products that are made especially for curly hair.

  • 8. Conditioner is your friend! Condition once in the shower with a moisturizing conditioner and then use a leave-in conditioner when you’re out of the shower. This helps to lock in moisture by creating a humidity barrier for your hair! Once a week use a deep conditioning hair masque.
  • 9. Invest in a good styling cream and anti-frizz lotion. This will add the final step before you go outside to seal your hair cuticle to prevent frizz and keep out unwanted moisture. If your hair is fine, use a water-based product. If your hair is medium to thick, look for something silicone based. We like Dove Damage Therapy Frizz Control Taming Cream.

  • 10. Air dry your hair whenever you can. After getting out of the shower, apply leave-in conditioner and anti-frizz cream. Then twist small sections of your hair around your fingers to create soft ringlets. Hold for 15-20 seconds and release. Try not to touch or mess with your hair until it’s dry so the curls remain defined.
  • 11. If you must heat style your hair, invest in a diffuser attachment for your hairdryer and a curling iron. The diffuser spreads the heat out so your curls dry evenly. Use the curling iron to define curls when your hair is completely dry.

  • 12. On days where you don’t want to style your hair, rock the messy bun! This looks amazing on curly haired girls because of the natural volume in your hair. Pull out a few tendrils around your face for a softer look just like Emma Roberts. Just simply twist hair up loosely and pin with bobby pins!

Dear Dish-It In The Forums

I'll be honest, I don't think that it's very fair that you're placing so much blame on your mother. Cancer is very hard to heal in any animal or person. She may of been able to help one spot, but that doesn't mean that she was going to be able to heal the rest. There's a slim chance that they could of made it through, but it's probably for the best that she put him down. Cancer is a painful thing to go through for dogs and humans alike. It would of been worse to push it. As for the depression, I understand where you're coming from with it. It's a difficult thing to go through and it makes things hard to do. I've struggled with things in the past and sometimes still do, so take my word on this: Eat. What. You. Can. Don't starve yourself. Don't binge. Don't do anything. Keep eating. Your health matters too. You need to find things to do, like hobbies (drawing, reading, writing, ect.) and spend time with friends when you can. At least talk to your friends, don't push them away. They're there for you, even when they might not know how to be. Don't be ashamed to cry, it's perfectly fine too. It's a better alternative of getting things out than a lot of things you could be doing. Do not, under any circumstances, start cutting. Take it from someone who's dealt with it on a personal level in several ways, do not start it. It is not something you "won't get addicted too" and it will not be a "one time thing." Do not try it. Do not start it. Do not try to find "softer" alternatives to cutting. Self-harm is not a fixer, it does not help anything. It isn't something to be ashamed of. It's a personal issue along with mental illness. But it is a very big deal. "And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help?" There isn't always a place to help. Sometimes it won't do the things we wish it would.

My dog, Loki, was old and had cancer. He was 14. My mom healed one of his cancer spots but not even a month later, she put him down. He had life in him. He played like a puppy. If she healed one spot, why couldnt she heal the rest? He could have lived right? He was like my little brother, I loved him like one. He was family. Every since he passed, Ive been depressed. Losing weight and not wanting to go out and hangout with friends. Me and my mom get into fights more. At some points, I hate her for what she did. I dont dare tell anyone about my depression and I cry every night until 3:30 am. I have considered cutting but I dont want anyone to judge me. Im not going to but I just want someone to understand what his loss did to my heart. Ive had him since i was a baby. He was my best friend. And to go and kill him like that instead of getting him help? I was mad. Can anyone relate? Can someone help me? ( im not going to a therapist btw ) UGH WHAT DO I DO?!

 No. Nope. Uh-uh! If he's trying to force you to do something you don't want to, like That, then i suggest you walk away. Say "no" plain and simple, and let him know what you think of that stuff.
