HOW TO CUT CURLY HAIR
We have been home for about six weeks now and we still do not know if the situation will last longer. We do not know when the hairdressers will open, nor when we can make an appointment. This is why many women are choosing to give themselves the dye at home until we can get back to normal. Haircuts are now added to the dyes. And it is that our hair does not understand confinement and continues to grow naturally.

As a general rule, during these months we usually go to the hairdresser to cut the ends and even take the opportunity to make a change of look. But due to this pandemic situation, it is not possible yet. Therefore, many hairdressers are giving tutorials on how to cut our hair without dying in the attempt. If you have straight hair, surely you have dared to cut the ends, but what if we have curly hair? How should we cut our hair so as not to damage it and make it look good? As we know that you have many doubts, a Candance Witherspoon, owner of a salon in New York and expert in curly hair, has given us some advice.
HOW DO I PREPARE MY CURLS FOR THE CUT?
If we get our hair wet, the curls will be stretched out and it will be much more difficult to match the actual size of the hair. That’s why Candance Witherspoon always recommends cutting curls dry. “This will make it much easier for us and we will have more confidence when cutting,” warns Witherspoon.
WHAT TYPE OF SCISSORS SHOULD I USE?
If you are going to cut your hair at home, it is better to use professional scissors. Kitchen scissors do not cut the same and we can spoil the hair. “They don’t have to be expensive scissors, rather they are durable. Inexpensive scissors can damage hair and split ends. “
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CUT MY HAIR?
Witherspoon suggests every three to four months, that is at least three times a year. But this can vary depending on how we see the ends. If you have doubts, consult your trusted hairdresser.
IS THERE A SPECIAL TECHNIQUE TO CUT MY HAIR IF I HAVE IT CURLY?
Definitely! While with straight hair it is possible to cut into sections, Witherspoon suggests cutting hair in a spiral to ensure an even finish when we have curls. “Spiral sections and cutting can cause excessive steering, which will leave some pieces shorter than others,” explains the expert. “Make sure you have a mirror to see the back and sides.” As for how much we should cut, let’s say less is more. “One to three fingers is enough,” says Witherspoon.
AND IF I HAVE COLORED HAIR, IS THERE SOMETHING I SHOULD BE AWARE OF?
If you’ve recently dyed your hair, it’s best to moisturize it first before cutting. Witherspoon also suggests a protein treatment once a month to help prevent frizz.
