Tips for coloring curls and frizz


Curly and frizzy hair needs special care when it comes to coloring, but it is possible to have super healthy colored curls. Check out our tips!

Anyone who has always worn their hair naturally curly or frizzy and has gone through a hair transition knows how much care goes into cultivating healthy curls. Perhaps for this reason, many women are afraid to change their hair color and end up damaging it.

This concern is more than justified, which is why we've put together a few coloring tips for those who want to change their look and preserve their soft hair.

Assess the health of your hair

Before making any changes, it's very important to assess the health of your hair, because coloring and bleaching can damage hair that is already weakened or hair that has other chemicals such as straightening, perming, progressives, etc.

For this very reason, it's advisable to get an assessment from a good professional to find out if your hair can be re-colored and which method is best for you.

If your hair is very dry, brittle or elastic, it's best to treat and restore its health before undergoing any chemical process. In addition, always respect a good interval between chemical processes to prevent more serious consequences such as breakage or chemical cutting.

Before rushing off to the cosmetics store, research the different coloring methods to determine which will achieve the desired result for your hair.


To help you, we've listed three of the more "traditional" methods. Permanent dyes are an alternative for those looking for a good hold and who don't change their hair color very often. They're especially recommended for those who want to cover up gray hair and maintain a very natural look.


Bleaching is necessary for those who have darker curls and dream of lighter hair, such as blonde, red, platinum or fantasy colors. For darker blonde tones, a light bleaching is enough, but if the intention is to achieve a very light tone such as platinum or pearlescent, it is important to seek the help of a professional.

In order to achieve the expected result with some fantasy shades, it is necessary to get to very light tones first, so in this case we also recommend taking the advice of a professional hairdresser.

In addition, common bleaching powders can change the curvature of your curls, leaving them without definition. To avoid this, only use Bleaching Powder for Curly Hairthe first in Brazil developed with a blend of oils, including coconut oil, which maintains the curvature of your curls even after bleaching.


Toners have less hold than permanent dyes and require more touch-ups. However, they are an interesting option for those who are always changing their hair color because they are less aggressive to curls.


If you've recently bleached your hair, it's worth investing in fortnightly reconstructions to help it recover. To help strengthen it, invest in products with keratin, hydrolyzed protein, collagen, cysteine, etc. Nourishing masks can also help restore shine and softness.

Use milder shampoo

To ensure that your colored curls last longer, keep an eye on how you wash them! Some shampoos have a high cleaning power and can make the dye go away more easily.

When washing your hair, prefer shampoos with less sulphate like our Less Poo Shampoo which provides efficient, gentle cleansing without drying out the hair.

Other important precautions

To ensure that the color lasts longer, invest in a leave-in with sun protection. Avoiding excessive heat from flat irons and hair dryers is also an important post-coloring tip.

Now that you've read the tips on how to take good care of your curls, go for the color change and have fun!😉
