Make Natural Curls Last

Hello everyone! This post was requested by a dear friend. Click read more if you're interested in making your natural curl/wave last longer!

1. Wash your hair with a sulfate free shampoo. I recommend using Wen's Fig cleansing conditioner. 

Ideal for: Anyone with thick, coarse, curly hair. Hair that is extremely dry/damaged.

Fig Cleansing Conditioner has a rich, dense consistency and works exceptionally well to moisturize, hydrate and replenish dry, heat-damaged, color-treated, or dehydrated hair. Fig is universal and can be used on all hair types, but is ideal on thick, coarse, wavy and curly hair.

 2. Conditioner/mask: Use a hydrating conditioner that does NOT contain alcohol. My favorite masks are:
 3.While the conditioner/mask is on, brush your hair with a wide tooth comb to avoid breakage. De-tangle and part your hair how you plan to wear it. Rinse with COLD water only.

 4. DO NOT TOWEL DRY HAIR! If needed just pat softly. Hair is most susceptible to damage when wet. Towel drying hair also causes frizz!

 5. Styling: I love using infusium 23 as a leave in conditioner. It provide smoothness and protect against frizz.It also enhance the texture and condition of your hair. You can also applied your favorite moose for an extra hold. Try to find one alcohol free.

6. Use a diffuser! (I think this might be the most important tip) To create tighter longer lasting curls, free of frizz, you must use a diffuser. Find the heat setting that works for you. I normally use the medium setting on my blow-dryer. Completely dry your hair with the diffuser.

Hope these tips help Jess!! Rock those curls!!
