STYLE STARTS IN THE SHOWER
Let’s get to the root of it – good hair starts with the right shampoo and conditioner. When it comes to curly types, specifically types 3 and 4, opting for hydrating products will keep your locks tight and bouncy. SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo is just what your hair needs for a shiny, manageable mane. Formulated without the use of sulfates or phthalates, this fragrant shampoo combines hand-picked naturally derived ingredients and certified organic Shea Butter. It gently tames curly hair with Coconut oil, Hibiscus flower extracts, Silk protein and Neem Oil. Simply lather, rise to wash away impurities and enjoy, frizz free, healthy curls. All that’s left to is condition with care.
Tangles and frizz hair go hand in hand - getting perfect curls and coils requires a good conditioner and some TLC. SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Conditioner instantly softens and detangles, while infusing your hair with moisture and shine-enhancing nutrients. Designed for thick and curly hair, this conditioner is formulated with naturally derived ingredients like Coconut Oil and Neem Oil and Silk Protein. The lightweight, innovative formula prevents breakage and provides nourishing hydration to dry, damaged and over-processed hair which helps in detangling curls. After shampooing, apply generously and comb through for even distribution. Leave in for 3 minutes. Rinse. Style as desired.
HYDRATION BEFORE HEAT
Curly locks are knotty by nature, so keeping them hydrated is a must. Avoid knots and tangles by moisturizing before drying or applying heat. SheaMoisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk will transition dry, damaged, hair to frizz free and detangled. This leave-in moisturizer and hair treatment styling milk is formulated to restore shine and boost hair. Made with naturally derived ingredients and certified organic shea butter, this product gives you soft, shiny, bouncy curls. Apply as a non-rinse moisturizer and style cream to damp hair.
CURLY HAIR TIP: Instead of straitening hair and curling it with an iron or wand, try a diffuser. Using a diffuser disperses the air in your blow dryer, reduces frizz, giving your hair corkscrew curls.
USE THE RIGHT STYLING PRODUCTS
Reduce your hair maintenance by using the right products. Incorporating styling creams and gels designed for curly hair, takes your routine a step further and saves you time. Give yourself a break! Try SheaMoisture's Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie treatment. Enriched with certified organic Shea Butter, this leave-in treatment for curly hair tames split ends and flyaways. This curl smoothie formula helps add brilliant shine, volume and definition to dull, lifeless curls and coils. To use, simply section off damp or dry hair and apply all over. Ideal for twist-outs, braids and wash-and-go styles.
GET IT TWISTED, GIRL
If your hair is uncooperative, don’t sweat it, jut twist it. Tackle unruly locks by twisting them while your hair is still wet. Once dried, you’ll have perfect curls! It’s easy - twist small sections of hair and pin them close to your scalp, braid pieces here and there, or scrunch hair. Use SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curling Gel Soufflé. Formulated with organic Shea Butter, Coconut oil and Flax seed oil, this curling gel is designed to protect overprocessed hair, boost hydration and tame curls. Apply on wet or dry hair. Comb through with a wide tooth comb or fingers to shape curls. For tight coils or kinky hair, or for twist out styles apply to wet hair for maximum control and sealing properties. Allow time to dry. When using a blow dryer choose a cool setting. Apply to dry hair to reduce flyaways and frizz.
COMB YOUR HAIR
The detangling process for curly hair can be a daunting task. The trick to combing curly hair without pain is to use to use a wide-toothed comb. This gets through tangles easily without stressing your scalp. Avoid breakage and split ends by combing your curls from the bottom up.
CURLY HAIR TIP: Comb through your hair when it’s wet. When dried, your hair will form curls in their natural pattern.
