Keep Curly Hair Intact Are you the girl who declines pool party invites because you're afraid a little splish-splash will ruin the delicate state of your curly hair? Young, right, has type 3b curly hair and feels your pain. "With curly hair, you don't want to wash it too much, because it'll get really dry. But I have to wash it, because if I don't, the chlorine will break it right off," she say. What's a curly-haired girl to do after a day in the pool? "Use a little bit of shampoo, and a whole lot of conditioner," says Young. And never, ever use a towel on it. "I will not touch my hair with a towel. I use paper towels or let it air dry," says Young.
To give her hair extra protection against chlorine and water, Young sprays it with a heat protector to lock in moisture before getting in the water.
