Open any curly-haired person’s vanity table. You’ll find a section dedicated to Curly hair products. No matter the number of products you use, it only makes a difference if you use products that work. Want to know about five curly hair products that work?
Oils help repair dryness and damage caused by heat styling tools, chemical treatment and colouring. Thus incorporating an oil in your hair care routine is highly recommended. Though the Curl Up Curl Nourishing Oil is an amalgamation of nine oils, it is a lightweight product making it ideal for pre-pooing, leave-in, or for scrunching out the crunch (SOTC).
How to use:
If you’re using the oil as a pre-poo, apply adequate amounts of oil on the scalp and massage well. Let it soak for at least 30 minutes before washing it off.
If you’re using the oil as a leave-in, you can apply the oil after the cream to add an extra sealant layer which will help prolong the definition. Apply the oil very gently and use less product, so your hair doesn’t appear greasy.
For SOTC, rub the oil into your palm and gently scrunch your curls once it’s dry. The oil will help produce lustrous and bouncy curls while reducing frizz.
If you’re a person with fairly moisturised curls, you may not need a deep conditioning mask for every wash. Otherwise, you’ll end up with over-moisturised curls.
That’s where the Curl Hydrating Conditioner steps in. This product has Chia Seed Extract, Argan Oil, and Flaxseed Extract. These ingredients provide a good slip, which helps to detangle your curls. The Shea Butter helps deliver moisture to your follicles, making your hair healthier.
How to use:
After cleansing your scalp, apply conditioner generously to your hair. Detangle your curls either with a wide-toothed comb or with your fingers. Doing this will help evenly distribute the product across your hair and aid in clump formation.
Scrunch the to encourage curl formation and leave the conditioner in for at least 5 minutes before rinsing your hair.
Deep Conditioning Mask
The importance of hydration cannot be overstated for curly hair.
If you want to keep out the frizz, a hydrating product must be in your arsenal. And what better than the Curl Up Intense Hydrating Mask? This product has the goodness of Avocado butter, Mango butter, and Shea Butter in it making it the perfect product for strengthening and fortifying the hair while deeply moisturising and nourishing it thus preventing breakage.
How to use:
After cleansing your hair with a curl-friendly shampoo, apply liberal amounts of the intense hydrating mask to it. Since the ends suffer the most from dryness, focus on them. Give the mask at least 20 minutes to do its job. You can optimise the effectiveness of the treatment by putting on a heating cap or a warm towel.
Curl creams work by hydrating and locking in moisture in your hair. Curl Up’s Curl Defining Cream is enriched with Shea Butter and Argan Oil. Both of these ingredients help to deliver hydration to your curls. The curl cream also has Flaxseed Extract which helps define and hold your curls by creating a soft cast.
How to use:
Apply our curl cream to soaking wet hair. Doing so will help distribute the product evenly and allow for maximum moisture to be locked in. Apply the cream either with the praying hand’s method or the finger raking. Then, scrunch your hair to help add definition to your curls.
The amount of cream needed will change depending on your curl pattern. So experiment with the amount to find what best suits your hair.
Defining Hair Gel
Lack of curl definition is one of the biggest woes for Curlies. Hair gels do the trick. But finding a gel that is a good balance between creating a cast and producing bouncy curls is a pain. The Curl Up Ultra Defining Hair Gel from Curl Up has Shea Butter and Flaxseed Extract. It is also a protein free and glycerine free gel which helps add an extra layer of protection thus reducing frizz while giving the curls extra definition and hold.
How to use:
The gel goes on immediately after the curl cream. You don’t have to wait for your hair to dry. Apply the gel on soaking wet hair with the praying hand’s method. If you have wavy hair, i.e.) 2B or 2C, you can use the finger rolling method to create barrel-like curls. If you have a 3B or 3C curl type, you can use the finger coiling method at this stage to define your curls.
Once your hair has dried, you may perceive a sort of stiffness or hardness in your curls. This is called the cast. Once the hair is 100% dried, you can gently scrunch out your hair to break the cast resulting in soft, bouncy curls.
