Cream for curly hair: products for the health of hair

Curly hair needs to be well taken care of. This means that washing, drying and hydration must be done with specific products for the curls.

Creams for this type of yarn can be used for several purposes: to make it easier to untangle, to moisturize dry ends and to increase or decrease the volume.

Therefore, knowing the quality of the product being applied to the locks is essential.

But not all curls are the same, as the wires can be divided into 3 categories:

  • 3A: wires in the shape of large curls, but with little volume; 
  • 3B: wires in the shape of open spirals;
  • 3C: wires in the shape of small spirals (almost closed) and plenty of volume.

Therefore, products must meet the needs of each type!
