Ever notice how your hair is curlier at the top, but then sort of loses steam toward the bottom? Or how some areas are curly while some are straighter? That’s how you spot not-so-healthy, improperly conditioned curls. Natural, hair-moisturising oils have a hard time travelling all the way down your curly hair. So as hair goes dry, the chance of damage toward the tips goes up. Which is why you notice your curls losing their shape.
