Curly hair is notorious for the poofy, frizzy mess that it can sometimes be. Thus, it’s important to find effective ways to cut curly hair in order to tame our curly locks.
Of course, frizz and poof aren’t just about the cut, but also about the care. So here we break it down for you, from the why behind the bulk, to the strategies behind the tame.
Why Does Curly Hair Get Bulky?
Curly hair generally poofs because of its texture and ultimately, its bulk. Specific haircuts can also increase or decrease your poof, given that they increase or decrease your bulk.
For example, a blunt cut creates more volume and leaves a pyramid or triangle shaped ‘do for curlies. This haircut is prone to the notorious poof as the bulk of your hair is situated in a small space.
On the other hand, layers can often cut down on the amount of bulk, thus reducing a poofy look. By displacing strands in different sections of the hair, you are essentially spreading the poof out, giving the appearance that you have less of it.
Keep in mind, however, that too many layers will create volume, which often translates to poof. Be sure that you explain your end goal to your stylist in order to ensure that he or she understands your expectations.
