Ok I'm Puerto Rican and I have naturally curly hair. Its not really kinky curly but it's much curlier than waves. I would like to use less hair products in my hair to keep it healthier and I like volume but I don't want frizz... What's your hair routine?

First of all you need to decide if you want to show the curls or loose them or a mix - depending on your mood or occasion. A shampoo and conditioner for straight hair in case you want to loose them, a shampoo and conditioner for curly hair in case you decide to wear it curly. Depending on whether your hair is dry, normal or oily, you should look for a brand that combines both your needs. If not, you can shampoo it more frequently if oily, or less frequently if dry. Normal hair, every 3 days is OK. You need to use a product for the frizz; if straight, it can be a serum or a cream, you apply on your wet hair and style as you decide using a natural bristles hair brush, as big as necessary depending on your hair length, there are serums to control frizz and add volume. If curly, is usually a cream to boost curls, you apply on wet hair and then you use either a diffuser with your dryer or let it dry naturally - remember to take the hair from the bottom with your hands and squeeze it close to your scalp to help it form a nice curl. You need to take in consideration that it would be good to use a moisturizer, either by the same brand of your shampoo, something better or something natural, check out the web for recipes. I learned a trick a while ago. Once or twice a week, before going to bed, apply your conditioner at the tips, and almost to the roots without touching the scalp, on your dry hair and leave it in, wash it in the morning, it will aid you to avoid split ends and will enhance your natural shine. Good luck!0
