But once you have a routine set in place, your mane will thank you by growing beautiful and healthy, just the way you want it to.

Each hair type and texture demands a different hair care routine, so first of all stop sharing the same shampoo and conditioner with your mom, BFF or partner.

Step 01: Shampoo

Shampoo your curly hair not more than twice a week. Yes, only twice no matter how often you hit the gym. Curly hair is naturally dry and frizzy, over-washing your tresses means you will further dry them out, leaving you with rough and brittle hair. Instead use a mild shampoo that cleanses your scalp without being too harsh on your hair. The Tresemme Smooth & Shine Shampoo is infused with vitamin H, silk proteins and argan oil that clear up accumulated dirt near the roots without stripping the natural oils. It imparts a healthy shine and gives you happy and bouncy curls.

Step 02: Conditioner

Conditioning is an essential step in every hair care routine, but more so for curly hair. It keeps your hair soft, shiny and tangle-free. We suggest using a conditioner from the same range as your shampoo for best results. A grape-sized amount of the Tresemme Smooth & Shine Conditioner is enough to work your way from the middle to the end of your locks.

Step 03: Leave-in cream

Your curly hair will thank you for using a post-shower leave-in conditioner. This essential step will nourish your locks and add definition to your curls. After showering, blot your hair with an old cotton t-shirt and then comb through your hair. Take a coin-sized amount of the TIGI Bed Head On The Rebound Curl Recall Cream and apply throughout your curls, starting from the roots to the ends. Flip your hair over and scrunch sections of hair to ensure the product is evenly distributed. Allow your hair to air dry for curls that are soft to the touch.

Step 04: Hair mask

As a weekly ritual give your curls a deep nourishment treatment to soften, strengthen and repair frizzy and damaged hair. The TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Level 3 Resurrection Treatment Mask is an intensive repair formula that helps breathe new life into your hair, giving you curls that look and feel happy. Take enough product on your palms and apply from mid-length to the ends. Wash off after five minutes for smooth and manageable curls.

Step 05: Heat protectant spray

Heat is your worst enemy, all your effort will go down the drain if you don’t use a heat protectant spray before styling your hair. Before you lift that hair dryer, spritz some of the Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Shine Spray all over your hair. Set your dryer to medium and use a diffuser attachment to dry your curls upside down.
