7 Tips & Tricks To Maintain Curly Hair


Why is it important to maintain curly hair ?

Maintaining curly hair for men is important for several reasons. Curly hair is much more prone to drying out because the natural oils produced by your scalp have a harder time traveling to the ends of your hair, this is what causes curly hair to go frizzy. Curly hair is also harder to style so proper maintenance helps achieve and maintain desired hairstyles

The team at Rogue Barbershop have over 30 years experience and we are often asked by our customers, how to maintain curly hair. So we decided to compile a list of the top 7 Tips & Tricks on how to do so.


  • Use a sulphate-free shampoo: This helps to avoid stripping the hair of its natural oils, which can make curls look frizzy and dull. Speaking from experience this is when your hair is at its most annoying state.

  • Condition regularly: Curly hair can be prone to dryness, so make sure to use a rich, moisturizing conditioner after every shampoo

  • Scrunch and diffuse: Instead of rubbing your hair with a towel, gently scrunch it to encourage curl definition. When blow-drying, use a diffuser attachment to avoid frizz. 

  • Experiment with different products: Try different gels, mousses, and creams to see what works best for your hair type. We have found that using a high quality hair oil such as Jonny Wild - Hair Oil and a high quality hair pomade, JS Sloane, are the best options for curly hair. Both these products compliment curly hair and have a medium hold to help keep the natural curls while also holding your hair down so you dont frizz.

  • Trim regularly: Regular trims can help keep your curls looking healthy and bouncy by getting rid of split ends.

  • Sleep with a satin pillowcase: This is probably the least obvious tip but sleeping with a cotton pillowcase can cause friction and frizz, so switch to a satin pillowcase to keep your curls smooth and defined.

  • Eat a healthy diet: And lastly a balanced diet with vitamins, minerals and protein is essential for maintaining healthy curly hair.
