water fun tip:
wear bandanas to prevent frizz + lay edges
Keep Your Curls Looking Good in the Pool, Ocean or Lake
Planning a day of water fun? Curious about how to keep your curly hair from getting frizzy? There's a simple - and stylish - solution: a bandana! Tying a bandana around your edges or even pulling your hair into an "updo" can help stop curly hair from frizzing in two ways:
- A bandana can help your edges lay flat
- A bandana may stop the occasional splash from hitting your hair.
Check out the rest of this post for quick, no-BS tips on how to lay your edges and select the right bandana for you
How lay your edges with a bandanaLaying edges is easy and can be a key component for maintaining . Here’s the simple routine a lot of us at The Refig use:
- wet edges and or section of hair you wish to lay flat (optional)
- apply gel to edges and section of hair you wish to lay flat
- brush hair into ponytail
- wrap bandana or headband around edges + area to lay flat
- enjoy life
- remove bandana or headband when hair is dry and/or water elements are no longer a concern.
Choosing the best bandanas and headbands for curly, wavy and coil styles
Like all accessories, bandanas and headbands can get a bit “personal” due to differences in hair textures and preferences. Here are a few things to consider in when selecting the right bandana for you.
- Size. Bandanas and headbands are like Goldilocks: Too tight, and you’ll have great edges and a headache. Too loose, and your edges may not lay flat.
- Adjustable Band or Flexible Material. What feels good when you first put on a bandana may feel too tight a little later in the day. MAterials with some “give” or the ability to adjust can help prevent or rectify that “too tight” feeling.
- Quick Dry Material. We personally love thin cotton, linen and recycled polyester bandanas as they tend to induce minimal sweat and dry quickly.
