There’s no one-size-fits-all routine when it comes to caring for your hair, and that is especially true for girls with natural curls. Gorgeous coils, kinks and waves come in every shape and texture, all requiring special attention and care that a girl could spend a lifetime trying to master. I love the versatility of my curly hair—I can go from a head full of curls to a sleek chignon or messy bun all in one day—but the styling and all-too-real daily challenges that come with curly hair can sometimes leave my curls dry, frizzy and undefined.
So when the team at Mizani sent products designed specfically for curly hair to Makeup.com HQ, I dropped everything and put them to the test. If your curls are falling flat, follow these tips to help them bounce right back!
Wash With A Hydrating Shampoo
Healthy curls begin with the right shampoo, and the Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo is a great place to start. Rich, creamy, and free of sulfates, silicones and parabens, this shampoo is gentle and leaves hair feeling soft thanks to a mix of olive, coconut and marula oils. Clean curls are happy curls.
Use A Hair Mask
You know face masks can do wonders for your skin, but hair masks can amp up your curls, too! Curly hair is often thirsty and constantly in need of moisture, which makes the Satin Crème Moisturizing Mask from the Mizani Supreme Oil Moisturizing Collection perfect for weekly use. Rich with deeply penetrating oils, the mask is surprisingly light and leaves hair feeling manageable while giving your natural curl pattern a boost. Hello, defined curls!
Remember to Moisturize
Washing curly hair every day is close to impossible and can actually leave hair feeling dry, which is why the Mizani 25 Miracle Milk really is a miracle worker for day-to-day styling. Just spray curls with the product to add moisture and shine for the days when you’re in between washes and need to revive your curls. It’s also a must for detangling and heat protection. Basically, it can do it all.
