According to Allure Magazine, one of the biggest tips for maintaining your curly hair, is to avoid over shampooing. They even love Aveda Be Curly Shampoo to get the job done!
LAY OFF THE SHAMPOO
Hairstylists agree that when it comes to washing curly hair, less is definitely more. Shampoo as infrequently as possible: every other day if your hair is very fine; once a week if it’s superthick.
On days you don’t wash it, we suggest just rinsing with water. And when you must lather up, use moisturizing products that contain ingredients like shea butter, palm oil, or avocado oil. (We like Aveda Be Curly Shampoo—it contains a blend of aloe and wheat protein that retracts around ringlets as they dry to help fight frizz).

Curly hair is sometimes tough to manage, especially depending on the time of the year. Each person with curly hair is different, what works for some, might not work for others. The best way to determine which styling concoction that works for you is trusting your stylist and educating yourself. Below is a great article from NewBeauty.com that is very informative about what products not to use, and what types of products to use on your curly hair!
Key ingredients for fighting frizz in curly hair
Frizz is synonymous with curly hair. It’s a common occurrence because the hair becomes too dry and separated and seeks out moisture, but it can be caused by a variety of factors. A humid environment, heat damage and improper brushing can all cause frizz.
Since curly hair requires extra moisture, shampoos and conditioners that hydrate are a must. Nourishing ingredients need to be present in order to repair the intercellular elements. However, you don’t want to add extra weight to curls, so you have to make sure the formula you choose isn’t too heavy. The most important thing with curly hair is to create a barrier to lock out moisture and keep your curls in place so they maintain their shape.
Smoothing ingredients like glycerin, essential fatty acids, silicone, aloe vera, vitamin E, resins and gums tame frizz, while calcium and magnesium fuse the protein chain together to lift and define curls.
To prevent frizz, don’t use products with alcohol, which can dry out curls and cause them to seek out hydration. Also avoid volumizing shampoos and conditioners, which can loosen and separate the curl and encourage frizz.

Rizzieri New Jersey Cosmetology School and Aveda – tips for men’s longer, curly hair
At the Rizzieri New Jersey cosmetology school we often get questions about how to manage men’s longer, curly hair. Here are some tips from Aveda.
Aveda’s Kurt Keuffner, Director of Men’s Education at Aveda, gives classic how-to styling tips and tricks for men’s long curly hair. Keuffner recommends using Aveda Men Pure-formance™ Shampoo and Conditioner, Liquid Pomade and Aroma Spray.
Start with Aveda Men pure-formance shampoo and conditioner to get cleaned, conditioned, healthy hair. But then you need to choose the right styling product(s) based on your hair length, hair texture, hair pigment, and styling objective.
This video, offered by Aveda and the Rizzieri New Jersey cosmetology school, shows how to style longer wavy or curly hair.
As you just heard, moisture content matters when you are getting ready to style your hair. If your hair is too dry, it will be difficult to apply your styling products evenly. But if your hair is too wet, it will dilute your products and compromise your styling results.
With dark hair, the Aveda Liquid Pomade is ideal. But don’t worry about selecting the right products. The students and stylists at the Rizzieri New Jersey Cosmetology School are here to help! We can recommend what’s right for you and provide tips on styling.
Let us here at the Rizzieri New Jersey cosmetology school show you how Aveda products for men, plus the proper techniques will get you the results you are looking for.
