I have co"Ooops, word censored!", very curly, shoulder length hair. It's trimmed every 10 weeks so the ends are always in good condition, and coloured every 5 weeks as I'd be very grey otherwise.
Iabsolutely, 100% agree with ChuckyMama on th hairdryer and brushing. Never let a hairdryer near it, and don't brush it when dry. In fact, I don't do anything to it when it is dry. I don't let the hairdresser use a dryer on it, and the only time I use a normal shampoo and conditioner is when I go to have my hair cut.
I wash my hair once a week. I use a no poo product called DevaCurl No Poo (here's their website, but I buy it from Amazon) http://www.devacurl.com/no-poo-curl.html It doesn't lather, so it took me one wash to get used to it.
They also do a conditioner and a spritzing spray, but I don't use them. I use a herbal hair rinse spray http://www.soapnuts.co.uk/collections/hair-treatments/products/herbal-hair-rinse-conditioner-200ml
After I've rinsed it out, I leab over to turn my head upside down. I squeeze some of the excess water out, and then shake my head like a dog to get the water out. I I then do a bit of scrunching on the top of my head with my fingers, and shake my upside down head again like a dog. I don't use a towek at all. (Not on my hair, anyway!).
In between, I dampen my hair each morning in the shower, run a comb through it (usually this one https://www.denmanbrush.com/product/d12-black-three-row-comb.html?r=13 which has the teeth set a reasonable distance apart buct close enough to get the tangles out. I do the headshaking/scrunching thing, which doesn't take so long as on a washing day as I've only dampened my hair.
If I want my fring to go the side, I push it to the side and put a clip in to hold it. Once my hair is dry I can remove the clip and it stays in place.
I don't use mousse or serums (I did in the past before), and I don't use glossing sprays. I used to quite like the effect of the glossing spray, but it would inevitably give e a bit of a product build up on my scalp. I don't have that issue with my pared down routine now.
I have a very wide toothed comb which I would use in an emergency, but I found that the morning damp-comb-shake generally means I don't need to do anything else. (One of the advantages of naturally curly hair is that it already has a bit of an unstructured look to it).
Appreciate my routine might not suit you
