How to maintain your curly hair

James Campion from our Solihull Salon recommends less is more when it comes to keeping your curls looking pristine. The less you touch and mess with your hair the more defined your curls will be. The perfect cut can help maintain a more controlled style and can stop it looking unruly or, as is often the case, bottom heavy. Our team of highly skilled stylists are here to help this not happen!

The best way to control your curly hair is through products; Oils, Hair Moisturisers, Leave in conditioner, Serums, Hair Crèmes. The products we recommend are from Kerastase and are available at all 3 of our salons across Birmingham.

The Discipline range, is Kerastase’s first range ever designed to keep your hair looking frizz free and feeling smooth whilst defining your beautiful curls.

Creative Stylist Andi Pile from our Soliull Salon is natural with curly hair, maybe because he’s got the wildest hair across the James Bushell Brand. He has given us his top tips on how to get your hair looking its best:


  • Only comb through the hair when it is wet, and ideally with conditioner
  • Use a diffuser with your hair dryer gently, at a low speed and medium heat
  • If your hair is lacking volume, tilt your head to the side
  • If you have fine hair and need extra hold, use a none aerosol hairspray
  • Use Kerastase Oleo Relax Serum and scrunch it into you hair
