How To Care For Curly Hair With A Busy Schedule

Summer is officially over, and what comes is my favorite time of year fall. But with fall comes back to school time. And we all know having to go to class, have homework and projects, while also possibly working a part time or even full-time job can be a lot to manage. Sometimes our hair suffers the consequences of us having too much on our plate. We will go days just putting it in a bun just so we don’t have to deal with it because it’s too much of a hassle or we don’t have the energy or time. Another factor into why we leave our hair alone is that while in college, you might not be able to afford certain products or be able to go to a curly salon-- which can be expensive.

But there are ways to manage your hair on a budget which shouldn’t take up too much energy or time. One way to keep your hair looking nice without having to spend hundreds of dollars is to find a student on campus who can style hair. They will keep your hair looking good but not burn a hole in your pocket. At a salon you could end up paying $100-200 to be styled where if you can find a student who knows what they’re doing they will probably charge $50-60. Which in comparison isn’t that bad. If that still feels too steep for your price range, maybe you can try wearing a head-scarf. They are not only good at hiding bad hair days but can be very stylish.

Another way to ensure that you take care of those curly locks is to deep condition and detangle often. I’d say as much as every other day or every 2 days or so depending on your curl type and how tangled it gets. Also always use a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair to avoid breakage. For this you will need products, so I recommend: Shea Moistures Shea Moisture Superfruit Complex 10-in-1 Renewal System Hair Masque, Shea Moistures Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Masque, or Curls BlueberryBliss Reparative Hair Mask. Just remember, there are other deep conditioners out there and what might work for one person might not work for you.
