Wavy

Cleanse
Once a week using a sulfate-free shampoo.

Condition
Wash conditioner out completely and follow up with a leave-in.

Dry & Style
Flip hair upside down and apply your curl cream in sections. Rake and scrunch your hair, then air dry or diffuse.

Pro Tip: Be sure to diffuse using only low to medium heat to prevent damage.

Curly

Cleanse
Once a week to every ten days using a sulfate-free shampoo.

Condition
For added moisture, leave some conditioner in your hair when rinsing or wash out completely and follow with a leave-in.

Dry & Style
Apply your curl cream in sections and then layer with a few drops of hair oil for an extra boost of hydration. Then either diffuse or air dry.

Pro Tip: Air drying your hair will give your curls a more natural, defined look, while diffusing your hair will provide less definition, but more volume, lift and length.

Coily

Cleanse
Shampoo only when necessary (ideally as little as possible). To refresh curls in-between cleanses, just re-wet your hair and condition.

Condition
Opt to leave a little conditioner in your hair, or rinse out completely and follow up with a leave-in.

Dry & Style
Diffuse or air dry strands, then style in various ways using curl cream including a wash n’ go, the LOC method or a twist out.

Pro Tip: If you twist out your hair, allow twists to fully dry overnight or under a hooded dryer before unravelling them.

 

The No List:
Heat
Fragrance
Sulfates
