Simple Hair Wash Routine for Naturally Curly Hair
All you curly beauties, here is how to wash hair properly using the products tailor-made for you.
1. Hydrate before shampoo
It is necessary to hydrate your hair using hair oil or a mask before washing it so your curly strands don’t get drier after shampooing. A deep conditioning mask like the TRESemmé ProPure Damage Recovery Mask helps strengthen hair against early hints of damage, fortifies hair from within and makes damaged hair smoother. It is infused with fortifying ingredients like fermented rice water, its unique damage recovery formula helps strengthen hair and sunflower seed oil helps smoothen hair. The goodness of fermented rice water gives your hair a much-needed protein boost and makes them healthy looking.
2. Focus on the scalp
A lot of curly-haired girls have adopted the co-washing method. It involves skipping shampoo altogether and only using conditioner. Although this may work once in a while, doing this every time might leave an odour or itchy feeling on your scalp. Therefore, it's best to use a mild shampoo free of harsh ingredients to cleanse your scalp without drying out your strands. The Love Beauty & Planet Rice Water & Angelica Seed Oil Silicone Free Shampoo For Curly & Wavy Hair contains fermented rice water and is specifically formulated to cater to Indian curly hair. It also contains natural Angelica Seed Oil that helps improve the smoothness of your hair, reduces frizz and gives your curly intense moisturisation that it needs.
3. Apply conditioner
Conditioner is your curl’s BFF! Keep them close and give them enough time together. Curly hair requires a little extra conditioner, so don’t be surprised if you run out of conditioner mid-month when there’s still enough shampoo left. Take enough conditioner in your palms and apply it to the lengths of your hair. You can start detangling your hair at this step, so it’s easy to manage later. Use conditioner from the same brand and range as your shampoo. We suggest the Love Beauty & Planet Rice Water & Angelica Seed Oil Silicone Free Conditioner For Curly & Wavy Hair for its intense nourishment. This conditioner is made with plant-based detanglers and infused with 100% organic coconut oil. The fermented rice water in the conditioner is rich in proteins that help in detangling, reducing frizz and defining your curls.
4. Apply a leave-in hair conditioner
The next step is to apply a leave-in conditioner on damp hair to ensure that your locks stay moisturised and nourished till your next hair wash. A leave-in conditioner helps to define and style your curls while detangling them. Take a dollop of the conditioner in your palm and apply it from the mid-lengths of your hair to the tips. We suggest using the same range of the leave-in conditioner as the shampoo and conditioner to get the most out of the product. The Love Beauty & Planet Rice Water & Angelica Seed Oil Silicone Free Leave-In Conditioner gives you frizz-free, defined and detangled curls.
5. Apply a hair serum
Once you step out of the shower, use a cotton t-shirt or microfiber towel to soak up excess water. Then apply some serum on your hair to complete your wash day routine. It will coat your strands with a protective layer that will shield them from the harsh rays of the sun. The TRESemmé Pro Pure Damage Recovery Hair Serum is infused with the goodness of Rice Essence which helps your hair recover from early signs of damage. It helps repair damaged hair and lends lustre to your dull locks. It is also infused with Sunflower Seed Oil that is known to help control hair breakage and helps keep tangles to a minimum and controls frizz.
