YOUR HAIR CARE ROUTINE FOR CURLY HAIR

 

Model with curly hairWhether you’re blessed with a wavy mane, tight ringlets or anything in between (ya lucky thing), your curls deserve a tailor-made {hair care} routine to keep them looking their best.

{Curly hair} needs a lot of moisture and a fair bit of TLC, so this curly hair routine features products that are jam-packed with hydrating ingredients as well as formulas designed to strengthen, tame, smooth, soften and define your curls. In this guide, {Cult Concierge} expert {Ryan} has outlined his recommended curly and wavy hair routine with your luscious locks in mind, including the best products for curly hair at every step.

1. START WITH A PRE WASH TREATMENT

Once a week, before washing your hair, start your curly hair routine with {OLAPLEX’s No.3 Hair Perfector}. This silky fluid strengthens and repairs damage post-colouring, bleaching or heat styling, or from just general everyday wear and tear. Use as a leave-in, overnight treatment or as a luxe 10-minute pre-wash treatment and see how your dry, brittle and elastic curls become softer, stronger and healthier.

2. ALTERNATE WITH A SCALP SCRUB

Once a week (at a different time to your OLAPLEX treatment), give your scalp a good scrub using {dpHUE’s Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp Scrub} to remove product build-up, impurities and dead skin cells. Apple cider vinegar is an amazing natural product for unclogging hair follicles while balancing the pH of your hair and scalp, while pink Himalayan sea salt lends a helping hand with physical exfoliation. This purifying action is balanced by an infusion of aloe vera and avocado oil, which soothe your scalp, condition your strands and enhance your shine.

3. WASH YOUR CURLS WITH A HYDRATING SHAMPOO

Give your curls a rich, soothing and deep-cleansing wash with {Dizziak’s Hydration Wash}. Packed with naturally derived ingredients (chemical-packed shampoos can strip your hair of precious natural oils), this {shampoo} cleanses your scalp and strands and infuses them with long-lasting hydration. Quinoa protein boosts your hair’s barrier repair by forming protective films, while babassu oil eases dryness, restores elasticity and stimulates follicle growth. Formulated without parabens, sulphates, silicones or mineral oil, this vegan and cruelty-free cleanser is a proper do-gooder, leaving your curls or waves velvety soft, frizz-free and unrecognisably manageable. What more could you want from a shampoo?

4. QUENCH YOUR CURLS’ THIRST WITH A NOURISHING CONDITIONER

There’s nothing curly hair loves more than conditioner, so post-shampoo, nourish your curls with a creamy formula to quench their thirst. Quite literally the best thing since sliced bread, {BREAD BEAUTY SUPPLY’s hair-mask: creamy deep conditioner} is made with curly, textured and dry hair in mind. Adored for achieving a finish of cloud-like softness, this velvety, moisturising emulsion is powered by superfruit extracts, including Australian Kakadu plum (which contains the highest concentration of vitamin C of all fruits) and starflower oil (which helps to strengthen your hair follicle to prevent hair from breaking and shedding). Apply a generous amount from root to tip and leave on for 5-10 minutes for soft, hydrated and buttery-smooth curls that don’t feel weighed down.

5. FOLLOW WITH A LEAVE-IN CURL CREAM

For definition and shine (who doesn’t want those?), look no further than {OUAI Curl Crème}. This does-it-all styling cream is brimming with conditioning plant oils (think: chia, linseed, coconut and babassu) that add definition, shine and impressive hydration to parched coils, curls and ringlets. It goes on like a cream before melting into your hair with the swiftness of an oil, leaving a bewitching scent of bergamot and lemon in the meantime.

6. FINISH WITH OIL FOR EXTRA SHINE AND DEFINITION

Think squalane is only beneficial for your skin? Think again! Used on your hair, this highly moisturising ingredient increases smoothness, strength and shine. Think of it as an intensive moisture mask for stressed-out waves and curls. As the final step in your curly hair routine, rub a small amount of {Biossance 100% Squalane Oil} between your hands and smooth it through dry or wet hair to add shine and tame flyaways, split ends and frizz.
