and other environmental factors, and therefore has a shorter life span than the rest of your hair.
But you can mend and protect these tendrils by nurturing them with extra doses of conditioner and
handling them gently. Pay attention to the damage you may be unwittingly inflicting on your hair

Q: How do I sleep and protect my Curl?
Tossing and turning in bed at night causes a lot of friction. I suggest that you get a pillowcase made of silk, cotton sateen, or very high thread-count cotton to reduce friction and minimize split
ends. The softer and more luxurious the cotton, the less damage it will do to your hair.

Q: How can I get rid of static?
Most curly girls don’t have much of a static problem once they throw away the hairbrush, shampoo, and harsh electric appliances that create static blow-fly!
Use plenty of conditioner, especially on the canopy of the hair. If static and flyaways are still a problem, take a wet paper towel with gel in it, and graze gently in a downward motion over the top layer of your hair.
Q: My hair looks dull. How can I get it to shine?
Shinning is always an issue with curly hair. Unlike straight hair, which has a flat surface and can reflect a lot of light, curly strands have contours so light reflects only off part of them.
Also, if your hair’s past includes shampooing, blow-frying, and straightening, be patient. You may never get the sheen that your naturally straight sisters can achieve, but after a few weeks of CGM, shinier curls will emerge.
