As the days get shorter and the temperature drops, it’s time to prep your curls for changing seasons, just as you would with your skincare and wardrobe.
Here’s our top tips for transitioning your curlcare from summer to autumn.
Start with a good trim
Sun exposure can affect hair, especially colour treated locks and curls transitioning from relaxers. Kick off the season with a good trim, getting rid of any split ends - for an immediate transformation. If you’re planning a new haircut, now is the perfect time to switch it up.
Clarify your hair
During Summer, we apply oils and leave ins frequently to keep curls moisturised and protected from humidity. Now is a good time to detox and wipe the slate clean.
Deep cleanse your scalp at least once a month to remove any product build up using our Scalp Exfoliating Shampoo. The hydrogenated castor oil beads in its formula, gently exfoliates the scalp and stimulates roots for healthy growth.
Increase moisture levels
With the temperature dropping and humidity in the air decreasing, curly hair may feel drier than usual. Try deep conditioning once a week or once every two weeks with Intensive Moisture Treatment.
After shampooing, divide your hair in sections and apply generously to each section. Take your time to detangle using a tangle teezer or a denman brush, be gentle with your ends. Next, cover your head with a plastic cap and leave the product in your hair for 20-30 minutes. Wrapping your head with our Curl Towel lets your body create heat. This intensifies the benefits of the treatment by lifting the cuticles, allowing the nutrients to penetrate in and balancing the effects of central heating and cold winds.
Choose natural ingredients
The key to strong lustrous locks is investing in products that are rooted in nature.
Choose curly hair products with moisturising ingredients like argan oil, coconut oil, glycerin and honey. Our range is formulated with nutrient rich plant extracts. Everything we include in our bottles is listed here.
Celebrate the season with our warm aromatic range
Like it warm and spicy? Try our Unisex Range. The Unisex Hydrating Shampoo and Unisex Curl Conditioner have the same great ingredients as our OGs but have a different scent. Think sultry and aromatic with a hint of spice.
It’s all in the finishing touches so remember that your routine needs a styler. Our Unisex Curl Styling Gel gives the ultimate firm hold without weighing down your curls or leaving any sticky residue.
