How to care for curly hair


Sometimes, curly hair is mighty work. Frizzy conditions can be a real worry and the simple idea of brushing could make waves go wild. So, how do you tame the mane? We’ve got some curly hair care tips that’ll put a smile on your dial. Who run the world? Curls!

Whether your curls are natural or you’re a wonder with the curling tongs, maintaining luscious locks can be hard work. So, what’s key to curls so lush you’ll be the envy of the town? We have a few Aussie hair secrets to help you out.


There are some big differences between curly hair and straight hair, aside from appearance. That’s why curly hair needs special care. One of the most important ingredients to curls that last is to use the right products.

Did you know that curly hair can be naturally more prone to drying out? Yep! Because of the shape of the strands, the distribution of sebum (natural oils) isn’t even. This can leave the hair looking and feeling dry, rough, “strawy” and frizzy.

Luckily, we have an Aussie secret to make sure every little strand gets the moisture it needs.

For the best curly hair products in the Aussie family to hydrate hair in need, try our Miracle Moist Collection. The star of the collection is our 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deep Treatment. Infused with none other than Australian Macadamia nut oil, this little gem’s packed with moisturizing ingredients that will help keep the frizz at bay, leaving you with well-defined curls.

To keep the curls nourished and shiny, add a touch of our 3 Miracle Oil Reconstructor Lightweight Oil as a pre or post-style treat. Conditioning treatments help to reduce friction and tangles, so you can control the frizz for noticeably more defined curls.

Once you’ve got the right products in hand, here are a few curly hair care tips to help you keep those rings in check. You’ll be an expert on how to look after curly hair!

  1. Use a comb, not a brush. A wide-tooth comb will pull less on your hair. The less you pull on your hair or cause it unnecessary stress, the more protected it will be against breakage.

  2. Apply deep conditioning treatments, often. The better condition your hair is in, the healthier it will look and the longer it will retain its curl.

  3. Give your hair a trim. Regular grooming can keep those split ends at bay and ensure your hair looks healthy, from root to tip!

And there you have it, the Aussie tricks of the trade for luscious curls that last. For more tips on how to get rid of frizzy hair, we’ve got that covered too!
