For anyone with straight hair, curly hair looks like the perfect hair type, voluminous, full of life and falling naturally into beautiful curls. However, the reality is a lot different. For many curly girls, their hair is one long unending high maintenance session. Tangles, frizz and dryness are common complaints, and a cabinet full of hair products is not uncommon.
According to Wellness Mama, it’s all about the lack of moisture in the hair. Your scalp produces natural oil, sebum, to keep your hair soft and to protect it. Straight hair wicks the sebum down the shaft easily, so that the whole length of the shaft is moisturized. Brushing aids this process by distributing the oils thoroughly (thanks, Scarlett O’Hara, with your hundred-brush-strokes-a-day routine). Curly hair, on the other hand, is shaped irregularly and the oil has a hard time wicking throughout the length of hair because of the bumps and ridges. It’s also impossible (and often painful) to brush when dry, so brushing can’t help, either. In fact brushing curly hair often damages it. Your poor curly, dry hair is exposed to the environment without anything to buffer it from the wind or the sun, and so gets damaged easily. Further, the unused sebum ends up sitting on the scalp collecting dust… Literally.
