Men’s curly or kinky hair care: how to take care of it

The main thing to remember when learning how to take care of men’s curly hair is that moisture is good and overworking it is bad.

How to detangle your curly hair? Well, start the detangling process by coating the whole length of the tangled or knotted lock as well as the matted/knotted area. If several hair strands or locks are involved, do too coat them; you need to first provide a slippery foundation to the hair so as to do the next step.

Once coated in oil, tightly pinch the matted/knotted area with the fingers of one hand and then pull the preceding length of the matted/knotted locks with the other hand, using a pulling motion that pulls the hair away from the matted/knotted area towards your scalp). Pull slowly and softly; you may find that it all goes well until you find that you cannot pull any more because the lock has being intercepted in the mesh of hair.

Never ever try to use anything other than a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to style your hair. Likewise, always use either of these two when your hair is damp and never when it has fully dried. Apply your hair-styling agent when the hair is damp and then don’t manipulate (i.e. touch) your hair any further. Carefully style your curls with the wide tooth comb.

Remember that moisture is the friend of curly hair. This is because curly hair tends to be drier and finer than straight hair, making it more brittle. This brittleness can lead to split ends and frizzy hair that will not be tamed for any reason. That is why one must use a good quality conditioner each and every time he washes his hair to replenish the moisture and lock it into the hair.
