In my opinion, curly hair is the best hair. But the summertime heat and humidity can make it hard to deal with, so here's 15 quick hairstyles for curly hair that will keep you feeling cool and cute all summer long.
Summer is hard on curly hair because external factors like sun, humidity, and dry air can damage and deflate your curls. My ringlets dissolve into plain 'ol frizz and unmanageable tangles during dry summer months, and it can be plain miserable. Styling my hair turns into a battle of will power. Saving shampoo for every other wash or so and leave-in conditioning products can help keep your curls looking and feeling healthy.
Even if your 'do is feeling less than fresh lately, there's hope. Luckily, curly hair style tutorials are all over YouTube. You can find styles that transition easily from gym to date night, styles that help stretch the time between washes, and styles that can help you fall in love with your curls all over again. These modern styles embrace baby hairs, flyaways and frizz and use them to create unique textures and looks. Instead of fighting against your curls, these tutorials teach you to work what your mom (or dad) gave you.
Here are 15 curly hairstyles to add to your repertoire.
