How to Loosen or Relax Tight Curls Naturally







By Tony Norman


You desire natural-looking loose curls but instead you stepped out of the salon with a head much like poodle's curly locks – too tight curls. You hated it, it looked awful, not what you wanted and you swore never to go back to that same hairstylist again. Yes, a perm gone bad can temporarily ruin your appearance and cause many sleepless nights.


While all perms will loosen up after a few weeks, here are some really simple steps which you can do to loosen or relax tight curls and survive through a "hairtastrophe" without feeling like a clown.


Relax Tight Curls Naturally

Loosen Tight Curls Step 1:

As soon as you receive the perm, gently brush or comb through those tight curls with a wide-tooth comb. If you have a bottle of detangling spray, use it first.



Loosen Tight Curls Step 2:

Get into the shower, wash your hair with a moisturizing shampoo. Then, place a generous amount of deep conditioner throughout your entire head, massage through and let the condition work for about 10 to 30 minutes.


Every couple of minutes, comb through your hair with a wide-tooth comb. By shampooing and conditioning your hair, it will help wash away some of the chemicals and relax the curls.



Loosen Tight Curls Step 3:

Rinse well and repeat step 2 a few more times.



Loosen Tight Curls Step 4:

Once out of the shower, spray your hair with a detangling spray and then comb. Gently press towel against hair to dry slightly, make sure you do not rub or squeeze hair with the towel. It is best to let your hair dry naturally (air-dry).



In addition, you can try a hot oil treatment to encourage curls to loosen. The heated oil will help weigh down curls and at the same time, relax tight curls.


You can also use a home straightening kit but be very careful when using such kits as some may contain harsh chemicals that can damage your hair further.


If you are really desperate, go to another hairstylist and ask for a reverse perm. Be warned that a reverse perm can damage hair in several ways – from dryness and hair breakage to the more severe side effects such as hair loss and scalp rashes.


Don’t worry too much about too tight curls. The curls will probably fall off faster if you shampoo everyday.
