3 Tips To Avoid Curl Breakage

We all know what everyday stress and strains can cause on our hair. A little breakage is healthy, but when is too much breakage a problem. We share with you our tips on how to avoid curl breakage.

DO YOU WEAR YOUR HAIR OUT?

Wearing your hair out constantly can cause a lot of breakage. Having your hair rub on your clothing creating friction and having your hair exposed to all elements of the outside world can slowly damage our natural tresses. Eventually this can be drying on our hair which in return can lead to breakage. Try putting your hair in any up do you like or a bun for a few days out of the week. This will protect your hair and ends.

HOW DO YOU PROTECT YOUR HAIR AT NIGHT?

Can you imagine taking a cotton towel to your hair and vigorously rubbing your curly crown? The horror I know. Straight away we think breakage right? Well while sleeping we have no idea what we do, but one thing for sure is we never sleep still. This can be a red flag for our hair, especially if you tend to sleep on cotton pillowcases with your hair exposed. Sleeping on a soft satin pillowcase or covering your hair with a satin bonnet or head scarf will help protect your hair from creating friction and breaking. Why not do both, double protection right!

HOW MUCH HEAT DO YOU USE?

Using a lot of direct heat (especially high heat) can definitely cause stress to your strands and can strip your hair of important moisture which can in turn lead to breakage. Your hair strands become more vulnerable and can snap. A good heat protectant is key, but everything in moderation. If you want healthy hair, then you have to do healthy things.

Naturally yours,

Team Flora & Curl

Amazing! Makes me and my curls very happy :)

Honestly tried a bunch of stuff, but nothing has worked for me as nicely as this stuff. I have 2b/3a curls, high porosity and it's very thin. If I scrunch this into my hair, my curls and volume come back, which I love. I did need to get used to the unique smell, it's not bad, just quite uncommon for a hair product (hibiscus).

Great smell!

Love the smell of the products, super light doesn't wear your hair down. Still figuring out how to keep the curl in my hair the whole day, but havent used these products for too long yet.

Such a good find!

During lockdown I've taken the time to really try and find good products for my hair. The scent is quite interesting but to me it doesn't matter as it's more what it does than what it smells like.
And what it does do it define my different textured hair and also all I need to do it spritz with water for next day curls as Well!
Very good product xx

Would you recommend it to a friend?: Yes
Love it!
