Well curlys … with just six weeks to go until Christmas, the countdown to 2015 has officially begun! Here at Curly By Nature we know all too well what this time of the year means for our manes. If you’ve noticed that your coils have become more brittle within the last couple of weeks, you’re not alone. The drier air can often strip our hair of moisture, so it’s important to hydrate your kinks more during the winter in order to protect them from the chill.
There are a range of natural additions that you can make to your haircare routine to boost the moisture in your curls. Grab your shopping list and pen …here’s our favourite natural remedies and how to incorporating the Curly By Nature Method:
1.AVOCADO OIL Rinse your curls with warm water then after applying a few drops of quality oil like our Hair Repair Oil, apply a generous amount of warm Avocado oil (or Olive oil) to your damp hair. Be sure to detangle your curls gently from the ends of the hair to the roots and leave the oil in for 30minutes before shampooing.
2.HONEY Use a SLS free Shampoo or gentle cleanser like our coconut and sugar-based Moisture Shampoo, then boost your conditioner (we highly recommend our Intensive Conditioning Mask to repair and strengthen your curls) with two tablespoons of honey (Manuka honey if possible). Cover your curls with a plastic cap for 30 minutes before lightly rinsing out.
3.BAOBAB OIL After applying a few drops of our Hair Repair Oil add a generous amount of baobab oil to your Leave-in conditioner to restore moisture to your hair after washing.
4.CALENDULA OIL Apply a generous amount of calendula oil to your scalp as part of your nightly hair care routine. Lock in the goodness by covering your coils with a silk scarf before bed.
5.KUKUI NUT OIL Add a few drops of kukui nut oil to wet or dry coils before styling.
