Who says curly hair needs to be difficult to manage? Sure, it can be a pain in the beginning, but once you figure out what works for you, you can just get out of the shower and go! If you're stuck in a curly hair rut like so many of us, try this simple 5-step routine that could completely transform you and your hair.
Step 1: Shampoo your hair and condition it with a moisturizing conditioner.
If you have curly hair, it's likely that it's very dry. Using a moisturizing shampoo like Curls & Naturals Cleansing Shampoo and a conditioner will help combat frizz, better define curls, and keep them looking new and shiny for a longer period of time. Use Curls & Naturals Leave-In Conditioner. Allow the conditioner to sit for a few minutes to help detangle those tangled strands and rinse!
Step 2: In the shower, comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb.
Brushing one's hair when it's wet is considered a crime by others. If you have curly hair, you already know that brushing it out when it's still wet isn't fun. Instead, use a wide-toothed comb to gently brush through your hair after rinsing out your conditioner to remove all tangles.
Step 3: Remove excess water and apply a curling mousse
Wring out all excess water from your hair before jumping out of the shower and apply a generous, and we mean generous, amount of curling mousse. From root to tip, scrunch with your fingertips a mousse like Curls & Naturals Curl Defining Custard.
Step 4: Wrap your hair in a towel and set it aside.
Put your hair up in a towel as soon as you get out of the tub. Don’t rub your hair to try to dry it quicker. Just let it be and let it sit for about 10-15 minutes.
Step 5: Use a curl cream and let it dry.
Apply a quarter-sized amount of a curl cream, like Curls & Naturals Dream Curl Crème, or Curls & Naturals Coconut Curling Creme from root to tip and scrunch with your hands again after letting your hair sit in a towel for a few minutes (it should be damp but not soaking wet). This will give you more hold and help you manage any frizz. Then just wait for it to dry! Allowing it to air dry is the best option but use a diffuser if you can’t wait.
