Everything To Consider Before Highlighting Curly Hair
The process of coloring can damage any hair type, but if you have curls, they could become less tight as a result. However, that doesn't mean highlights are out of the question.
Highlighting curls is a commitment that requires ongoing maintenance. You’ll have to use products like leave-in conditioners, hair masks, and other moisturizing treatments.
Finding a stylist you trust with experience highlighting curly hair is essential. Your stylist should be extra gentle to prevent damage and maintain your curl pattern.
One of the best benefits of having highlighted curly hair is that it only needs to be retouched every two to three months but can last as long as four to six between appointments.
In addition to moisturizing and bond-building treatments, turning down your shower’s water temperature and shampooing less often will extend the lifespan of your highlights.
Finally, using shampoo and conditioner formulated specifically for color-treated, curly hair can help keep your tresses healthy and gorgeous.
