Haircare tips for naturally curly hair
Keeping in with our previous post over here, we thought we’d continue our styling and hair care tips but this time, for naturally curly hair.
Invest in silk
A very important thing for all hair types, and even more so for curly hair, is to make sure that you are sleeping on a silk pillowcase. Because curly hair tends to knot easier than any other hair type, sleeping on a silk pillowcase will not only that but protect your style and make sure that your hair doesn't break in your sleep.
Detangle with a proper comb
Brushing your hair with the incorrect brush or comb can cause more harm than good. The Balmain Golden Styling Comb (R795.00) is a wide-toothed comb that is ideal to detangle hair without breaking and splitting. It helps to reduce frizz and will feel like an utter treat to use since it’s 24-carat gold plated.
Keep it moisturised and don't forget to scrunch!
Using a conditioner is a key step in making sure that your hair stays nourished, moisturised and soft. For curly hair, we always recommend the Argan and Moringa Shampoo and Conditioner as they work together to restore moisture and protect the hair. They are a brilliant duo to rejuvenate dry and smell amazing! Because of your texture, you could get away with washing your hair 2 -3 times a week without over-drying your hair and scalp. For best results, add your conditioner from the mid-shaft to the ends of your hair.
After washing, don't be shy to scrunch up your curls to get the most of your natural style!
Try not to touch dry hair
If you don't have time to air-dry your hair, then use a hairdryer with a heat diffuser such as the CHI Deep Brilliance Hair Dryer to dry your hair up to 40% faster. The ergonomic handle design with grip detail provides comfort and balance during styling. The optional comb attachment smooths highly-textured hair and an air concentrating nozzle helps direct airflow for faster styling. Cool-shot button helps to smooth the hair cuticle to lock-in styles and lock-out frizz with added shine. Once dry, be sure not to touch your hair too much as it will cause frizz and increase in dryness!
Lock in the shine
After drying and styling, be sure to spritz your hair with a moisturizing spray to increase hydration without weighing down your hair. The Deep Brilliance Shine Serum is a great product for this as itis a weightless leave-in treatment that provides superior smoothness, manageability, and natural movement without buildup. This is due to its wonderful mix of olive, monoi coconut oil and Tiare Gardenia flowers.
