Natural Kinky / Curly Hair Tips:

Kinky / Curly hair is Amazing!

But, it can take years to truly perfect your hair routine.

No matter your hair type here are our top tips for divine curls:

  •  Look at the ingredients in your Shampoo and Conditioner! Sulphates are widely reported to hinder the voluminosity of curls. You can try an Organic shampoo such as African Black Soap or try the “No-Poo” method. That’s No Shampoo! With the “No-Poo” method wash only with a conditioner and / or occasionally with Shampoo when necessary.
  • Use a deep conditioner. Curls crave moisture! Especially if your hair is coloured or has been chemically treated (relaxed / texturised); a rich deep conditioner once a week or once every 2 weeks will keep your thirsty curls hydrated!
  • Use a daily leave-in conditioner! Think Coconut Oil, Castor Oil, Shea Butter, the choice is yours!
  • Stop combing your hair when its’ dry! The best way to prevent breakage and promote growth is to only de-tangle your hair when wet. Before rinsing out your conditioner, use a wide-toothed comb or hard brush to de-tangle and wait until your next wash to de-tangle again!
  • After washing your hair, for perfect curls use a product to define each curl. These come in the form of Curl Cream Activators, Gels and Moose, then Scrunch or Twist your curls for definition!
  • Blowdrying your hair can take awhile! If using a Hair Dryer use Medium Heat to avoid damaging your hair, it’s also a good idea to add a diffuser to your Hair Dryer in order to ensure even heat coverage.
  • It’s a common misconception that Kinky / Curly / Afro hair doesn’t grow quickly. In-fact it grows at the same rate as other hair types however as it requires more moisture as it tends to be drier and therefore more prone to breakage. For this reason we recommend Protective Styles when possible, Braids, Updo’s, Cornrows – and a scarf, high bun or plaits before bed, or whenever really.
