Curls usually lack moisture due to their coily texture that obstructs the movement of vital oils produced by the scalp.
TYPES OF CURLY HAIR
CURLY HAIR CARE ROUTINE
Curls should not be washed dailyas it strips down the scalp from its natural oils and moisture. But when curls are not washed daily they get tangled. This is where Pre-Shampoo comes in.
Separate the hair into sections and using a comb or fingers coat every hair strand evenly, from roots to the tip with a leave-in conditioner, hair oil or hair masque.Let the product sit in the hair for 20–30 minutes and then rinse. This helps to detangle hair and makes it easier to wash them.
Shampoo 2-3 times a week (depending on the moisture in the hair) with a moisturizing, sulphate-free and Paraben-free curly hair shampoo.
Conditioning is a must for curly hair as it helps restore the moisture after shampooing. Applying the conditioner on the scalp could make the hair appear greasy but in case of extremely dry or tight coils, you may need to condition the hair from the roots to the tips.
After- Shower Treatment
Lightly comb the wet hair to get rid of tangles and apply a drop of the curl cream or serum through the hair while scrunching and cupping them upwards to have shiny and defined curls that don’t lose their texture and volume throughout the day.
Dry the hair while scrunching and separating the curls at the lowest speed by placing them on the diffuser nozzle attached to the dryer.
Hair Oil or Mask
For better hair growth and hydration restoration, usehair oil or mask with Argan Oil, Coconut Oil, and Glycerin once a week.
