It might not be the easiest hair type to look after, but when they're in good condition and properly styled, curls are an unbeatable look. Here are our recommendations for a haircare routine to keep your curls beautiful!
For big, bouncy curls full of life, it all starts in the shower. Using a shampoo and conditioner specifically tailored for curly hair will keep your curls nourished and springy. Products from the same collection will be more effective, as they have been formulated to work together. A deep condition once a week is also a good way to keep hair moisturized and healthy. Either leave on for the recommended time, or sleep on it - literally - overnight.
Applying too many styling products can leave your hair feeling crunchy and over-burdened. A curl-enhancing mousse scrunched into wet locks will help keep their hold, followed by a shine and fixing spray, is enough to ensure your curls will last and look natural. When applying the mousse, start from the tips and scrunch upwards. Leave for a few minutes before drying to ensure the product has had time to soak in.
