Memorial Day Weekend is the unofficial start to summer, which means taking extra time to moisturize curly hair. We are able to do just that with CurlyKids® Hair Care products.
Anastasia loves sporting her curls, especially during the warm months. When it comes to achieving frizz-free wash-n-go curls, using the right products and technique is everything.
We had a birthday party to attend and errands to run, so we really didn't have much time to work with. Between working a full time job, studying for exams, managing a household, and taking care of two little ones, it’s important to have a schedule. But sometimes our routine may get thrown out of whack, which means cutting corners is a must. However, just because we take short cuts, doesn’t mean we should sacrifice quality.
Since we had a lot of ground to cover, we got to work right after breakfast to give Anastasia’s curls plenty of time to air dry before the party. Here's a step by step tutorial of how we achieved her frizz-free wash-n-go curls.
Step 1: Shampoo with CurlyKids® Super Detangling Shampoo. We first saturated the hair with water and worked the product through, while messaging the scalp using the fingertips. This shampoo is a lot different than others we’ve used in the past because it has a bit more slip. The moisturizing properties didn’t make her hair difficult to manage at all.
Step 2: Condition with CurlyKids® Curly Cream Conditioner. This when I like to thoroughly go through the strands and finger detangle the hair. I find that this technique allows me to safely isolate knots and get rid of them without breakage. I start off with small sections and work through the hair from the ends to the root
- I admit to going a bit overboard with the product. I make sure the hair is saturated with conditioner for easy detangling. Plus, her hair tends to dry very easily when the weather is warm. I find that the CurlyKids® Curly Cream Conditioner is great at adding moisture without weighing her hair down.
Step 3: Add CurlyKids® Curl Defining Lotion. This product has quickly become a staple. We all know that well defined frizz-free wash-n-go curls is what all curly girls want to achieve. The Curl Defining Lotion is what gives her curls that added pop.
Step 4: Add a CurlyKids® Curly Gel Moisturizer. This is where the magic happens. The gel moisturizer works great in conjunction with the CurlyKids® Curl Defining Lotion. It’s important to distribute the gel throughout the curls.
The first time I used the gel I made the mistake of not using enough because I didn’t want her curls to look crunchy or weighed down. Boy, was I wrong. We were rushing out and forgot to freshen up her baby brother’s curls. I applied a little bit of the defining lotion, followed by the gel moisturizer. Both their curls looked amazing, but I noticed my son’s had a bit more pop. The gel is not sticky or tacky. I’m glad to see that the CurlyKids® Hair Care line does make my daughter’s hair greasy.
We were able to go through these four easy steps in about ten minutes, and continue on with our day.
