How to Take Care of Curly Hair
This one's for our curly hair girls. If you've broken your fair share of brushes and can't find a haircare routine that works for your curls, we're here to help. Caring for your curls doesn't have to be hard- here are some simple steps to help you get started.
GET TO KNOW YOUR HAIR 🎀
The first step to caring for curly hair is to know your hair type. The products and haircare routine you use depends on your hair type and texture. Tighter curls are often more dense and dry, meaning they require extra hydration. Wavy hair may require less moisture. There are tons of curly hair types- start by finding the one that matches your hair and don't be afraid to try new products and techniques.
SKIP THE RINSE & REPEAT 🧼 🛁
Since curly hair is more prone to frizz, washing it frequently can lead to more frizz and damage. Instead, let your scalp's natural oils keep your strands moisturized. Shampooing and washing your hair less will keep your curls hydrated and soft.
HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE 💦
Curly hair- meet your new bestie: conditioner. Conditioner is amazing for keeping your hair hydrated, soft, and smooth. Since curly hair requires extra moisture, this step is super important for hydrating and keeping your curls healthy. While a grape-sized amount of conditioner might work for wavy or straight hair, a larger amount may be more effective for curlier hair. Apply a hydrating leave-in conditioner to your ends and to the mid-shaft of your hair, gradually working your way up. Let it sit in your hair before rinsing in the shower. Psst..our Watermelon Crush Hair Mask doubles as an amazing conditioner! It's formulated with watermelon extract, avocado oil, grapeseed oil, and rice powder to nourish and repair your hair.
DON'T BE KNOTTY 😉
If you have curly hair, you know that brushing is no easy task. Detangle your thick hair gently by using wide-tooth combs. Pro tip: run a wide-tooth comb through your hair while leave-in conditioner is still in your hair to distribute the product and get rid of any tangles.
IT'S SCRUNCH TIME ⏰
After rinsing your hair thoroughly and shampooing, gently scrunch your hair in upward motions to form your curls. Use the palm of your hand to scrunch your curls up to define your curls and give them shape. For best results, use styling gels or products that work best for your hair type.
PROTECT & REPAIR 💪
Protecting your hair from heat damage is essential for promoting healthy hair and curls. Use a good heat protectant before styling your hair and finish with a hair oil like argan oil for extra hydration and shine.
