As we welcome the cooler season, here are 3 quick curl tips to ensure your natural curls stay in top shape.
1. Moisturize Moisturize Moisturize. Be sure to keep those curls moisturized. Always start with water and then seal in your cream with an oil. Be sure you always use organic or all natural ingredients and avoid products that have parabens, sulphates and mineral oil.
2. Combat Dryness: The cooler months tend to bring dryness all around - so consider doing a hot oil/steam treatment when you condition your hair to infuse moisture back into your hair. Warm up your favorite oils, apply and wrap your hair with a heated towel for 20-30 minutes. You can do this 1-2 times a month.
3. Protect your hair overnight with a Satin Pillowcase or Sleepcap. The smooth surface on the fabric will ensure you retain the moisture and prevent breakage caused by cotton and other harsh fabrics which absorb moisture from our curls.
Doing these quick and easy things will ensure your hair stays protected whether or not you have it in braids, cornrows or wear it out in all its glory. Enjoy the beautiful Fall weather!
