Curly hair locks tend to be frizzy, unruly, and unattractive. Every curly-haired girl dreams of flaunting hair that is frizz-free and gorgeous. And Ciara is no different. Like every other girl, she also wants to flaunt the most flawless curly tresses all day, every day. However, she doesn’t want to harm or damage her precious curls while trying a smoothing treatment in her hair and that’s why she always opts for curly hair smoothing treatment at home rather than visiting any hair salon.
If you are also like Ciara and you too want to try hair smoothing treatments at home to avoid hair damage, then this is the article for you. In collaboration with Ciara, we have listed some extremely effective methods to fight frizz and smoothen your curly tresses in the comfort of your home so that you can rock perfect hair without any damage.
But before proceeding further, you must know that in this article we have included both natural ways to smoothen curly hair and also at-home chemical smoothing treatments available in the market so that you always have options to choose from.
Curly Hair Smoothing Treatment Using At-home Treatment Kit
Going to a hair salon for smoothing treatments not only exposes your curly hair to severe damage but at the same time it also cuts deep into your pocket- a one-time smoothing service can cost you up to $300 or even more in some cases. However, an at-home smoothing kit costs you far less and also provides you a less damaging result when used correctly.
To do a curly hair smoothing treatment at home all by yourself, first, you need a suitable treatment kit. Pick a treatment kit that is mild as well as effective and smoothens your frizzy curly manes for at least 3 months (we prefer this Amazonliss Keratin Hair Smoothing Treatment). We are saying this because, the longer the treatment lasts, the less frequent you have to do it on your hair and therefore, less damaging effects.
Start your smoothing session by washing your curly tresses with a smoothing shampoo to build the base for your treatment (try out this Discipline Bain Fluidealiste Smooth-in-Motion Shampoo by Kerastase).
Then with a suitable conditioner such as this Hair Food Avocado & Argan Oil Smoothing Conditioner moisturize and hydrate your frizzy, curly hair so that the frizz and static are not as stubborn during the treatment.
Don’t forget to rinse your tresses with cold water because hot water opens up the hair cuticle and makes it quite difficult to smoothen the tresses afterward.
After you are done washing your curly tresses, towel dries them to soak the excess water; don’t blow dry because you need damp hair for the smoothing process.
Then divide your hair locks into several sections and apply the smoothing cream of your choice. Don’t forget to comb through the hair to make sure that there are no tangles or knots in the curls.
Now, let the cream sit on your hair for at least 20-30 minutes or as instructed on the cream label before washing them again. Do not use a shampoo or conditioner this time.
Now that you are done washing, using an ionic blow dryer dry (try out this Remington D3190 Damage Protection Ionic Hair Dryer) your curly manes completely to reveal the most gorgeous, smooth, and frizz-free tresses you ever had.
Curly Hair Smoothing Treatment Using Natural Remedies
If you are not comfortable with using chemicals at all on your delicate curly hair, then adopting the natural approach is the most suitable one for you. Even though using natural smoothing masks don’t show promising results as fast as the treatment kit, they are also extremely effective in reducing frizz and give your curls a smoother appearance that you have been wanting.
For smoothing out your curly manes using natural remedies, pick a suitable natural hair mask at first. From coconut milk hair mask to egg and milk mask, and others, choose the one that you think would suit your curl texture perfectly.
Unlike the treatment cream, you have to apply this mask on dry hair so that it can absorb better and deliver the silky, smooth tresses of your desire.
Begin the process by combing your curls to remove any knots and tangles. Then, with your clean hands, apply your favorite natural smoothing mask all over the hair and wait for 30-35 minutes. Within this time, the ingredients from the mask will penetrate your hair strands and fight frizz from the inside to make your tresses are silky and smooth.
Then wash your hair with a suitable smoothing shampoo and discover naturally beautiful hair.
It doesn’t matter whether you are adopting the chemical treatment kit or a natural method, remember that an at-home curly hair smoothing treatment is much safer and less costly with similar results. adopt the one you prefer the most and don’t forget to inform us about the results.
