Hello to all my curly friends! Here are some guidelines to follow when taming the wild beast.
Rules of Shampooing
It is NOT necessary to shampoo daily
If you have loose waves shampoo 2-3 times a week
If you have curls shampoo 1-2 times a week
If you have extreme curl shampoo once a week
Your hair is SOO thirsty!
Conditioner provides a shield from heat damage, UV rays, and product buildup.
Always condition after shampooing *Leave about 20% on the ends for extra protection
On days you do not shampoo rinse hair with tepid water and detangle with a leave in conditioner like Dede mist
Let it be!
- Set it and forget it! Apply your favorite styling product and let your curls come alive.
- Do NOT use a brush. If you must use a wide tooth comb. You do not want to interrupt the curl pattern
The average woman does not have a professional stylist at her disposal nor does she have patience for her hair. What a woman does have is the ability to learn and understand…
Take a look at Camilla Belle, she has a great cut for her face shape and probably normal to fine texture with a slight wave. Let’s assume your hair has similar characteristics. You can easily enhance your wave with a sea salt spray and diffuser. Simply part your hair how you want it. Then spray the product generously all over your hair followed by diffusing the hair dry with a medium heat. Once the hair is dry you can spray a little more sea salt spray and scrunch with your hands.
Add a headband to instantly glam up your waves…
A messy updo is a girls best friend…
Gather hair gently where you want your chignon to sit and begin to coil the hair until it looks like a small bun. Cup one hand over the bun and begin to insert bobby pins until it feels secure. If some strands fall out, no worries this is a “messy” bun. Finish with hairspray.
