We curly girls know how to have a lot of fun, but we consistently have to make sure our locks are always awake and fresh! Because our strands are fragile, they need to be handled with care. Especially when they get dry from applying too much heat or changing seasons, we need a revitalized look and feel again. To prepare for a crown full of vivacious curls, it is wise to have the proper beauty and hair care tools to help bring your lustrous tresses back. Here is a new haircare ritual in 3 easy steps!
Step One: Wash your hair with Grow Gorgeous Curl Cleansing Conditioner
This conditioning cleanser detangles each strand and leaves the mane soft, and moisturized with a sweet citrus scent. This is a creamy, oil-based cleanser that nourishes the scalp. It contains unique ingredients such as caffeine for a boost, oats, and crambe oil to smooth and give it a gorgeous gloss that defines the curl. The best part about this cleansing conditioner is that it does not leave that squeaky clean feeling as a typical shampoo does, which is not suitable for curly hair because it tends to strip the hair of nutrients. It comes in a bottle with a pump, which is so convenient and easy to use. The bottle isn’t huge, but it is more than enough. And this is coming from someone with naturally thick wild curly hair.
Step Two: Condition your curls with Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask with Rare Prickly Pear Oil
This comes in handy if your hair is thirsty and needs that extra hydration or if you had sleek straight hair and you are ready for your bouncy waves again. The Christophe Robin Regenerating Mask is a perfect come back cream for your locks, especially if you want an extra hydrating treatment. If you need added moisture and crave that extra spring, I highly recommend this creamy mixture. Included are rare ingredients such as prickly pear oil, which contain a high antioxidant level and give that refreshing baby powder and pear scent. After cleansing your hair with the Grow Gorgeous Curl Cleansing Conditioner, apply the mask, leave it on for about 3 minutes, and rinse out. This is the mask that always brings my curls back to life after straightening.
Step Three: Apply the Grow Gorgeous Curl Leave-in Butter
Follow up with the Grow Gorgeous Curl Leave-in Butter, and I promise you, you won’t be disappointed. The scent is sweet and citrus, and I’ve gotten many compliments on it. The texture of the butter is velvety and doesn’t make your hair sticky. I will admit, I was a bit skeptical about the curl butter at first because Grow Gorgeous is not a niched line for curly hair, meaning it’s not their primary focus. However, it’s definitely a hero product for the curly girls because it gives a defined look. The curl butter contains unusual ingredients such as hyaluronic acid and camellia oil (my favorite oil at the moment); both of these ingredients tame the frizz and hydrates. There is also caffeine to give it more volume! So if you want wild but frizz-free curls, this product is for you. Note: If you desire a more tamed look and wish for your coils to last at least three days, I highly recommend a hair dryer diffuser with ionic technology to lock in hydration. The jar looks small, but just like the Curl Conditioner Cleanser, you really don’t need much in your hair. I love the gold packaging jar as it sits pretty in my bathroom.
In conclusion, because our curls are fragile, we have to keep our strands healthy. We must practice self-care with our hair by keeping it hydrated and fresh to retain the radiance – Especially after applying heat, environmental factors, or changing seasons. These three products should be in every curlista’s cabinet.
