Curly hair care - How to achieve Beautiful curly locks

Treating curly hair requires much more expertise and patience than straight or fine hair. This is because it’s not as easy to bring out the natural curls and make them defined as one might think. In our article, we reveal the reasons for this and how to properly care for curly hair.


Different curly hair types depend on the position of the hair follicle. In the case of curly hair, the hair follicle forms an angle with the scalp. In this case, the keratin bonds are unable to align in a straight line. Thus, the more angled the hair follicle, the curlier the hair becomes. The degree and appearance of curls are therefore often unpredictable. For example, the hair at the back of the head is often wavier than at the front, around the face.


One of the most characteristic features of curly hair is that it can become extremely dry without proper hair care. One reason for this is that curly hair types do not produce enough sebum. The substance produced by the sebaceous glands forms a protective layer on the hair strands, thus moisturizing them. In this case, sebum has a harder time coating curly hair strands and does not reach the ends of the hair. As a result, curly hair is much more fragile, leading to common issues like split ends.

Since sebum does not evenly cover the strands, the protective layer of the hair strands is not fully guaranteed. As a result, curly hair is more exposed to harmful external factors such as sunlight, chlorinated water, or windy weather.

Representatives of curly hair often complain about dealing with tangled, knotty, “haystack” hair crowns. This can also be attributed to the dryness of the hair, as it causes the hair strands to become more frizzy and tangled. Additionally, humidity poses a greater challenge to wavy hair crowns. Since curly hair is inherently dry, it tends to absorb every bit of moisture from the air, thus reacting more to humid conditions.


Curly hair often experiences a loss of its natural shine. This is because its surface scales tend to open up more quickly, resulting in less light reflection. As a result, straight hair always appears shinier, while curly hair reflects light in a completely different manner.


If you have curly hair, you know well that bringing out the beauty of curly locks requires a lot of attention and patience. Oxygeni Hair & Skin has developed a unique treatment specifically for curly hair, known as the Curly Method.

Its essence lies in applying a Curl Defining active ingredient cocktail to the hair, which not only helps improve the structure of curly locks but also provides thorough hydration, thus protecting the hair strands from drying out.

As the first step of the treatment, we deeply cleanse the hair. Following exfoliation and pH restoration, deep hydration is provided, and the Curl Defining active ingredient cocktail is infused into the hair using medical-grade oxygen. Finally, a 100% natural hair styling formula is applied, providing a beautiful hold to the hair while nourishing it with high-quality ingredients.

While managing curly hair isn’t simple, it’s not an impossible mission. With proper care and the use of suitable hair care products, you can transform your curly locks into a healthy crown. Here are 6 tips that can help make your curly locks beautiful!


Curly hair is particularly sensitive, so it’s crucial to use sulfate-free, silicone-free, and paraben-free shampoos for this hair type. Since curly hair tends to be extremely dry, opting for a product specifically designed for dry hair can be an excellent choice.


One of the most important products when treating curly hair is conditioner. You can use plenty of these on your hair, as there’s no such thing as too much for curly hair. It’s advisable to use a rinse-out conditioner during shampooing and a leave-in conditioner after washing. The former helps maintain the hair’s shine, while the latter preserves the wavy strands.


It’s best to style curly hair when it’s wet. Apply the hair styling cream to damp hair and distribute it evenly with your fingers. It’s worth lifting the hair ends towards the scalp multiple times to increase the hair’s volume. Then, collect the water from your hair with a microfiber towel if possible; this can help minimize frizz.

The most ideal way to dry curly hair is by using a hairdryer at a low temperature. Excessive heat can dry out and damage the hair strands. Additionally, hairdryers equipped with a diffuser can also be suitable because the holes on the tool distribute the warm air more evenly.


It’s not recommended to comb wet or damp hair as it can disrupt the natural waves. It’s better to gently detangle it while still damp, or even achieve beautiful curls without using a comb. After your hair has dried, it’s advisable to use a hair serum to moisturize the ends while they’re dry.

Oxygeni Hair products are the perfect choice for curly hair. With Pure Aloe Vera and Med Oil, your hair will regain its shine and health! Pure Aloe Vera aids in the effective absorption of vitamins and minerals. Med Oil soothes irritated scalp and normalizes collagen production.
