Make Your Wash Day Last

Once you have those curls looking good, how can you make them last until the next wash? Let’s take a look at a few essential steps to keep your curls fresh!

Step One: Take your time on wash day. 

The more effort you put into your wash day, the better. Be sure to lock in moisture by using plenty of water and then seal in that goodness with an oil or cream! Sectioning or using a brush designed for wet hair can help to distribute product evenly, which is needed to ensure all strands are coated. Don’t skimp on products or rush the process—it will show, and your curls will not last!

Step Two: Protect your hair at night.

Cover your hair while you sleep, and you will reap the benefits! Popular choices include silk scarves, pillowcases, bonnets, or buffs. If you can’t cover your hair, a good choice is a loose pineapple on top of your head. The goal is to reduce friction on your hair at night because rough cuticles will equal unwanted frizz and misshapen curls.

Step Three: Refresh your curls in between washes.

Refreshes can be kept to a minimum by protecting your hair at night, but as the days stretch beyond wash day, a good refresh can help revive your hair. Refreshes can be dry, damp, or even fully wet if needed. You can use oil, cream, leave in, gel, or foams/mousses for refreshes, such as our African Citrus Hair Oil, Organic Rose & Honey Leave-in and Sweet Hibiscus Curl Activating Lotion. If your strands need moisture, a leave in conditioner mixed with a little water is an excellent choice to rehydrate the hair.

Step Four: Wear your hair in a protective style.

A great way to extend your wash is to wear your hair in a protective style whether it’s a simple bun or beautiful braids! You will minimize sun and weather exposure, limit breakage, and minimize tangles.

Hopefully these tips keep your tresses happy in between washes!

Yours in Hair Health,

Nice Comb

It's a nice wide tooth comb. I have a couple other ones & I like this one the best. I only comb my hair when I wake up, before I refresh or wash it.

Would you recommend it to a friend?: Yes
great and easy to use

I love that this clay is mixed with other things so you don’t have to apply any vinegar afterwards. It’s perfect for travelling, not only because ot is not a liquid, but also because ot is so easy to use and it hydrates and clarify your hair! <3 And the scent of this product is just AMAZING <3 My boyfriend loves to use it, too. He said his hair was never so beautiful before using this “magic”! :)

Curl gamechanger!

Just about to finish my first bottle of this and about to order another. I have fine curls and this foam is very lightweight, non sticky and has great hold too! You don’t need too much product to get bouncy full definition. It’s a staple in my curl routine!

Perfect curls

I stopped wearing my hair curly because I couldn’t find a product that would adequately hold my curls all day without making the curls look “wet” and over styled. A friend recommended this product and it has transformed my curls to look healthy and frizz-free!
