2. Thin Curls

You can keep your curls short or medium-length without them mushrooming on your head. Thin, curly strands look great when they appear sleek, so keep them well-conditioned and moisturized. A few layers will also help distribute the volume equally. When styling your curly hair, ditch your comb. Just use your fingers to scrunch so your curls rest beautifully on your head.

3. Full and Thick Curls

The key to having a harmonious relationship with your curly hair is to work with it and not to fight it. After showering, finger-comb your curly hair while blow drying. This way, your hair will be completely dry before you leave the house and moisture won’t mingle with sweat and dirt. To style, use a hair gel or wax to help your curls stay in good shape.

Editor’s tip: Wash your hair with DOVE Men + Care Refreshing Clean Shampoo to get rid of dirt and grease while giving your hair and scalp a refreshing feel. 

4. Curly Bowl Cut
