Thick to curly hair tends to be D-R-Y. Yep, those of us who live with dry hair know that our tresses can be, to say the least, quite a challenge! Yvonne, a hair stylist who specializes in caring for thick/dry hair, is always willing to give her clients practical tips to help them maintain their hair's healthy shine! Here are a few standard "Living With Dry Hair 101" reminders from Yvonne:
  • The best hydrate is WATER. So, drink plenty of water and wash your hair (with moisturizing shampoo AND CONDITIONER) at least once a week.
  • Avoid thermoheat as much as possible.
  • Depending on your hairstyle, use a lightweight hair lotion throughout the day.
Consumption of water plays a key role in the maintenance of healthy hair. Yvonne emphasizes this by saying, "Your hair is a part of you, so taking in fluids (drinking water) is a good thing."

The pixie cut actually works perfectly with thick to curly locks.
After having a professional cut your hair, if you want to maintain the look yourself, here is how it's done:
  1. Shampoo and Condition hair. While hair is wet, spray it with setting lotion. Carefully trim bangs and the edges of  hair. Comb hair down flat and straight while it is still wet.
  2. Sit under a hair dryer for about twenty minutes.
  3. Spray dry hair with a light spritz and then with a conditioning sheen.
  4. Use a flat iron or curling iron to curl hair in neat rows.
  5. Comb out curls with a feather comb, spritz it one last time and your hair is gorgeous!
