Mistake 1: Overwashing
We know how much you love those fresh wash curls. And that precisely might tempt you to wash your hair more frequently, innit? But ladies, hold that thought right there. Curly hair is naturally dry, and washing it more than 2 times strips away your hair’s natural oils. Bring down the frequency a notch and allow your hair to retain all that natural goodness. Our Rice Water & Angelica Seed Oil Silicone Free Shampoo For Curly & Wavy Hair is a cult favorite! The fermented rice water works like magic to restore moisture and lend visibly shiny hair.
Introduce co-washing in your hair care routine. For this, you need to ditch the shampoo and use conditioner to cleanse your hair. Take enough amount and then massage it into your scalp and hair and rinse thoroughly. Repeat if needed. Doing this once a week will cleanse your hair + intensely hydrate. Pick our Rice Water & Angelica Seed Oil Silicone Free Conditioner For Curly & Wavy Hair to do the job.
Mistake 2: Hair Care With Harsh Ingredients
The curly-head gang needs to stick together and collectively say no to using parabens and sulfates. Both of these are commonly found in shampoos, conditioners and hair masks and can easily set your hair health in reverse gear. Along with drying out your hair, they also make them brittle and prone to breakage.
While picking products for curly hair, rely on shampoos and conditioners that are paraben and sulfate-free. Our range consists only of vegan and cruelty-free products that promise to care for your curly hair.
Mistake 3: Not Clarifying Your Scalp
The route that leads to those juicy, defined curls is indeed quite twisted, right? There are a plethora of styling products that go into the making and most of which tend to sit on your scalp. What this eventually does is clog your scalp pores over time, cause itching and make your hair look limp.
Add a weekly scalp scrub treatment in your curly hair routine. Our Tea Tree Oil & Peppermint Scalp Scrub is enriched with detoxifying ingredients that gently exfoliate your scalp to eliminate dead skin cells, product build up and dirt. P.S. Another great benefit? You’ll notice an immediate jump in your hair’s volume.
Mistake 4: Ignoring Your Hair While Sleeping
Does your hair look all flattened out in the morning? Or seems puffy because of the frizz and tangles? Not protecting your curls while sleeping can put all your hard work down the drain. Not only will they lose shape, but also become prone to damage. Simply tying them up and calling it a night won’t suffice. Here’s what you need to do.
Ditch the cotton pillowcases and swap them for satin/silk ones. They help prevent friction and keep the curl shape intact. You can also use a silk/satin scarf or a bonnet to wrap your hair.
Q:1 What are the steps for a curly hair routine?
A. Use a nourishing hair oil as a pre-shampoo treatment. After a couple of hours, wash it off with a paraben and sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. For styling, you can use a leave-in cream along with a styling gel. Leave it to air dry or use a diffuser to dry.
Q:2 How to refresh curly hair?
A. When your curly hair needs an instant re-definition, start by spritzing some water to make it damp. Then use your leave-in cream and scrunch your hair upwards. Allow it to air dry or use a diffuser.
Q:3 How can I reduce frizz in my curly hair?
A. Frizz is quite common with curly hair. You can bring it in control by applying an anti-frizz serum on dry hair. You must also include a hair mask in your routine at least once a week to add moisture and reduce frizz over time.
