Curly Hair Care
This month I’m collaborating with some fabulous curly hair gals and businesses bringing you all the hair tips, products and tricks you could ask for! Ever looked at your fave celebs hair and wondered how on earth their hair is so perfect, glossy, shiny, defined? What are their secrets?
I’ve had one too many bad hair days and its time to tackle them.
From styling to care to hair mistakes and myths, especially for those curly girls and guys. I’m researching, contacting and finding out all the goss to share with you all. I’m also featuring a few of my favs so if you want to be involved simply send me an email and il be in touch.
Let’s start with the basics.
So as a fellow curly I’m sure you’ve all heard the comments and compliments surrounding your hair. Its unique and no curl is the same. Ever wondered what your curl type is and how to care for your curls the best way? Below is a guide, which has helped me choose the correct products and work towards making my curls healthier and bouncier.
But having a good hair day doesn’t come easy. It’s essential to care for your hair the right way and know what works and what DOES NOT work. Iv had loads of trial and error with different products and iv learnt that too many chemicals can never be good for your hair. Some of these hair care brands are really expensive and have about 203204 different chemicals in them, you look at the ingredients and it’s like a lab has thrown up on your hair. That can’t be good in anyone’s terms.
Natural is best
I hear this all the time but recently I’ve started to try it out myself. Natural hair masks work miracles on my hair and I’m so glad I started to try it out rather than chemical based ones. Ever wonder why when you’re on the beach and in the sea your hair has that crisp wavy feel? Its the same kind of thing. The sea has natural ingrediants like salt that work well with your hair. We need to remember all the natural resources we have before we go straight to chemicals.
My go to natural hair masks
- Volume booster – Avocado, coconut oil, fresh lemon juice, warm water
Use as much or as little as your hair needs but be sure to cover it. This hair mask adds volume and leaves my hair lightweight and bouncy
- Moisture and shine – Natural yogurt, honey, olive oil
Works wonders when my hair is feeling dry and brittle from heat damage or over styling. Can warm this mask in the microwave for a few seconds to give that hot hair mask effect.
- Hair repair masks – Avacado, 2 eggs, honey, coconut oil
So much protein in these natural ingrediants your hair loves it! When my hair needed urgent repair after having highlights, I tried this mask out once a week and instantly saw a difference. I leave this one on a little longer then the others to get the full benefit. Eggs are soo good for your hair however weird it may seem.
I usually leave the hair masks on for about 1-2 hours depending on the state of my hair ha! Try these out and let me know your thoughts 🙂
