Having wavy or s’wavy hair can be frustrating if you cannot get the definition you desire. Your waves can easily drop out and become frizzy if you’re not following the right routine or using the right products.
To get the best from your curl pattern, you need lightweight products. If you’re losing the curl pattern, it may be because the products are too heavy and weighing your curls down so use a cleanser or shampoo that is gentle and light. We recommend:
Always focus on the scalp when cleansing as clean roots will give you more volume and lift. Massage the scalp to exfoliate the pores and rinse thoroughly.
Conditioning your hair is an important step. Dry curls and waves will be prone to breaking and will be lifeless with no shine. Use a lightweight conditioner, as with the shampoo and focus on the mid-lengths to ends. We recommend:
This is the time to detangle, even if you don’t have knots, running your fingertips through your hair will make sure your conditioner is covering your whole head and prevent any tangles. Gently run your fingers through as you rinse.
When choosing a styler, opt for a stronger hold. You need a product that will lift and hold your curl for maximum definition. We recommend:
- Trepadora Papaya Slip Taming Potion
- Design Essentials Natural Curl Enhancing Mousse
- Jessicurl Gelebration Spray
Apply your styler to wet hair by scrunching in sections one at a time. Once set, do not touch your hair- this is the most important part! By touching, you will break the curl and cause frizz. When your hair is completely dry and has a crunchy feel to it, scrunch your curls again. This will break the gel cast, releasing the crunch and leaving your curls soft and defined.
