Rizado, encrespado, ensortijado, chino...Curly and frizzy are various words in English. Trying to discover the same in Spanish.

You are watching: How do you say curly hair in spanish

We're curly girls at home, and I deserve to tell my daughter in English, because that instance, "If girlfriend touch her curly hair as well much, it will gain frizzy," or, "We layout our curly hair as soon as it's wet so it doesn't acquire frizzy."

I have yet to find how to say things prefer this in Spanish; the very same words seem come connote both. But curly is no the exact same as frizzy, for this reason I'm a little stumped and surprised ns haven't found a word come express this. Any help would be much appreciated.

In Mexico curly hair is one of two people "pelo rizado" or "pelo chino. Frizzy have the right to either be just "frizz" like "pelo con frizz" o "pelo frizado" or "pelo encrespado"

Edit: Typo

Curly = Pelo enrulado o pelo con rulos.

Frizzy = Pelo encrespado o pelo con frizz.

Wavy hair = Pelo ondeado.

Crespo is used when describing someone with curly hair, as in, él es crespo.

Here I've never heard who describing hair together "chino".

En Colombia:

Curly: crespo, rizado. Frizzy: con frizz, lleno de frizz, esponjado.

Las frases ras traduciría así: "Si tocas demasiado el pelo crespo, se va a llenar de frizz" y "Peinamos nuestro cabello rizado cuando está mojado para que no se esponje".

I'll answer with the spanish of a specific part of Colombia (caribbean coast), so don't death me:

Wavy hair= pelo ondulado Curly hair= pelo rizado "pelo crespo" is something favor this once it's also curly, sufficient to make small tubes, climate it's "pelo churco". Frizzy hair would certainly be "pelo hosco"/"pelo esponjado" because that a typical name, and "pelo de coño/pelo de chucha/pelo de pendejo/pelo malo" for a pejorete name.

In Spain, it's pelo encrespado:


Yo no entiendo de pelo, pero creo que un pelo encrespado no es un pelo frizzy. Una cosa es tener el pelo muy rizado (frizzy) y otra encrespado, o sea, roto, hecho una pena, áspero. Aquí en Canarias decimos eso cuando alguien tiene el pelo como el pelo de un cerdo, pelo duro y tieso.

Pero ya digo, lo mío no es el conocimiento sobre los tipos de pelo.
