But how to make your curly hair to look like hers? Here’s what you can do.

Hair tips for curly hair

In order to keep your unruly curly hair healthy, experts recommend doing this:

  • incorporate hot oil treatment into your hair routine, using it twice a month, as it will add moisture and elasticity to your hair;
  • don’t forget about conditioner and make sure to generously coat the ends of your hair every time you use it;
  • never comb your hair when it’s dry as it will easily break, instead use a hairbrush when it’s wet and conditioned;
  • take care of your scalp by clarifying it every three weeks with apple cider vinegar – it will balance the Ph of your hair and scalp and promote shine.

And remember, curly hair needs to be trimmed often to prevent split ends, so don’t neglect it. Especially, if you want to have gorgeous locks like Michelle Obama.
