Curly Hair Rescue: Moisturize Your Coils

Curly Hair Rescue: Moisturize Your Coils

The battle of evaporating moisture for our hair rages on as we start to manage the effects of dipping temperatures. And that battle is especially tricky for women with wavy and tight coil patterns. But, not to worry because part of the curly hair rescue brigade are products from brands PhytoSpecific, WEN by Chaz Dean, Mizani and Ouidad.

Hydrate It

Created especially to treat the needs of curly and frizzy hair, is the premium hair care brand Phytosepcific. To give your hair that deep dose of hydration it needs, while leaving it manageable and maintaining its curl resilience is PhytoSpecific Curl Hydration Mask ($29, Made without harmful sulfates and phthalates, this hair mask seriously nourishes as it adds shine and smooths hair. Great for all hair types.

Co-Wash It

Anyone who stays up past midnight has seen a Wen by Chaz Dean infomercial. After seeing my umpteenth commercial, I was moved to request a sample of Wen by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner – Fig for coarse hair ($32, The new-ish trend of co-washing combines multiple  processes into one without losing the effectiveness of a great shampoo sans harsh chemicals and detergents, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler and leave-in conditioner...looks like I can afford those shoes now since I’m saving cash. My first thought after receiving my shipment was “I need a larger bottle because I have a lot of hair!” My second thought after using this product, was that it felt thick and did hydrate as it said it would, especially on the curly ‘do I was was rockin’ at the time. I even liked the pump action dispenser. If you’re of the over-processed or heat damaged hair ilk, than this product is something you should include in your hair care arsenal.

Do A Leave-In

If you’re of the tried and true method of performing your hair care steps separately, then let your leave-in be Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave In Conditioner ($9-$69, On the lightweightside, this conditioner infuses each curl with Prickly Pear Cactus Extract sealing moisture in. This leave-in also contains Green Tea to protect,Vitamin B5, which promotes shine and healing Arnica Extract to prevent frizz and encouraging healthier hair and scalp.

Lengthen & Moisturize

Awesome curls only stay that way if they remain lengthened, so try Mizani True Textures Moisture Stretch Curl Extending Cream ($21, This is a lavishly-thick cream that helps moisturize and release your natural curl pattern, so they don’t shrink all the while getting rid of that annoying frizz halo and leaving behind no greasy residue.

Hue Knew It? I did.

Designed for coiled to extremely tight styles, this moisturizing, curl-smoothing cream helps to loosen and elongate tight, unruly coils without weight or residue. Defines highly textured strands by reducing frizz and shrinkage and revealing flexible, individualized spirals with a clean, touchable finish. Perfect for curl set and finger twist techniques. – See more at:–finishing/true-textures-styling/moisture-stretch-curl-extending-cream#sthash.nLyCnO73.dpuf
