- Invest in a good prom hair cut. Find a stylist who knows how to cut curly prom hair. Depending on your style, layers are usually a no-no for curly prom hair. You should have your hair cut every 6 to 8 weeks.
- Purchase the proper styling tools, shampoos, conditioners and styling products. There are several products that are created specifically for curly prom hair.
- Shampoo your curly prom hair every other day. The natural oils in your hair help keep the curls smooth. Curly hair can get frizzy if washed too frequently.
- Condition everyday. Even if you do not shampoo, wet and condition your prom hair. Use conditioner on the ends rather than the roots. Rinse thoroughly.
- Deep condition every 2 to 3 weeks. This will help keep the rough shaft of your hair smooth and pliable. It also helps prevent split ends.
- Use a pick to comb out wet hair—never a comb. Curly hair is fragile and needs to be handled gently. A pick moves through curls and tangles easily, without stretching or breaking the hair shaft.
- Add the correct styling product to your hair, depending on your purpose. A serum will help keep your curls tight and shiny. A mousse or gel will keep the curls stiffer. A straightening solution will make your curls wavy rather than springy.
- Utilize a diffuser every time you blow dry your hair. Never blow dry completely. A diffuser helps distribute the heat and air, keeping your curls tight and composed, rather than frizzy.
- Keep your hands away from your hair throughout the day. The more you touch and finger your hair, the more wiry it will get.
