Hair types 3a and below starts curling a few inches below the roots. I’ve struggled with a straight crown too – Now I can get decent root curling. Even if these tips don’t make your roots curl, that’s ok! Because it is, quite natural for 3a and below to have straight roots. And that’s the natural behaviour, so embrace it :). Most of these techniques work against gravity thereby preventing hair from being pulled down straight.
Here’s a list of salons and stylists in some cities in India that work well with curly hair according to readers and fellow bloggers. If you know of a salon/stylist not on the list, please leave a comment and I will update it here 🙂
I had gotten a haircut on August 19 done by Daniel at Rock Paper Scissor in Ulsoor, Bangalore. My hair was getting weighed down and my crown layers had grown out.
If you have read some of my product reviews, you’d have noticed that I do ingredient analysis. That’s because there’s no regulation to what the caption of the bottle says – it can say “natural”, “removes 100% frizz” and blah blah. What really matters is what all has gone into it.
ACV has been popular for a long time in the curly community for being able to remove product buildup and restoring the pH balance of the scalp and hair.
