Natural waves and curls are prone to frizz—no thanks to humidity! This is why we often don’t see women leaving their kulot hair down. But it doesn’t have to be the case. Be confident and let your hair loose. A drop of hair serum can help give you smoother and silkier curls, so you can feel free to wear your hair down.

Editor’s tip: Curly hair tends to be more prone to dryness and frizz, so make sure your hair is always well-moisturized. Use Dove Nourishing Oil Care 1 Minute Serum Conditioner, which is infused with serum capsules such as coconut, almond, argan, and sunflower seed oils and vitamin E that go deep into your hair to nourish it from within. This conditioner transforms your dry and rough strands into smoother and softer hair.

6. Sorry, I can’t hear you over the volume of my hair.

Quote that says, "Sorry, I can't hear you over the volume of my hair."
Who doesn’t like thick, full, and healthy hair?

Not everyone is endowed with great hair volume which is why you should feel blessed if your hair is naturally thick. If someone picks on your voluminous hair, you can always tell them how easy it is to get layers or style your hair any way you want!

If you have naturally thick hair, waves can highlight it. But if you have thin hair, don’t worry. Big, voluminous waves or Hollywood waves can make your hair look thicker and fuller. No curling iron? No problem! You can use hair rollers or even no-heat techniques like sock curls to create glam waves.

7. I am a queen crowned in my curls.

Quote saying, "I am a queen crowned in my curls."
Curly and lovin’ it!

Who says crowns have to be literal objects that glitter? When you feel proud of your curls (which you should be), then wear them freely like a crown! It’s not called “crowning glory” for no reason, right?
