This classic fashion hack is one that all curly-haired friends need to know! Especially during sweater weather, but also anytime you’re getting dressed, this one thing will help save your curls from turning into frizz.
Curly Hair Sweater Hack
The fashion world may have been more focused on protecting designer clothing from makeup with this tip, but it’s a well-loved hack for the curly community too.
The not-so-secret rule is that models have been required to bring a silky scarf to place over their face and hair before pulling over their designer dresses and tops. The scarf then prevents any makeup from rubbing off onto the clothes. At the same time, the hair is also protected from any friction, which is just what a curl wants.
So, this winter, as you’re taking sweaters on and off, or trying on holiday dresses, try this sweater weather curly hair hack! Simply drape a silky scarf on top of your head before pulling over your clothes. It does look and feel weird to be completely covered up. But you’ll get the hang of it and will be able to master the technique in a snap.
The Silky Scarf
When shopping, look for scarves made of silk, satin, or silky polyester. The smooth texture of these fabrics will protect your hair from any snagging or friction. Avoid cotton or wool scarves that can stick to the hair or make it difficult to pull over your clothing.
I recommend having at least one scarf that’s easy to wash, reuse, and take anywhere! Try keeping a silky scarf in your dressing room or purse to be ready for all your styling (and shopping) adventures.
