  • The latest data on where in the U.S. curly hair will look its best, and where it most likely will dry out, break, knot and tangle.

Any curly-haired individual knows their hair not only requires extra care but is more sensitive to weather elements than their straight-locked counterparts.

New research by beauty research website, Tajmeeli reveals 94 of the best and worst cities for curly-haired individuals.

Anaheim in California with its moderate climate conditions - ideal for curly hair - tops the list. West Palm Beach in Florida ranks as the worst city for curly hair as its high humidity levels and average rainfall per year proves disastrous for anyone avoiding poofy, frizzy curls.

The top three states that offer the best weather conditions for curly hair are California, North Carolina and Louisiana. 

Californian cities snag seven out of the top ten best city spots for curly-haired individuals with Bakersfield, Pasadena, Long Beach and San Jose ranking second, third, fourth and fifth in the list. 

The research showed how humid and dry states ranked much lower as their weather conditions negatively affect curly hair. 

As a result, cities with more moisture in their atmospheres, like Hollywood, FL and Honolulu, HI ranked 91st and 92nd respectively. Drier cities, such as Reno, NV (82), and Henderson, NV (83), were also on the bottom of the list.
