How To Fall In Love With Your Curls Again
It's no secret that we can all get burnt out when it comes to taking care of our curls. Curl care can be expensive and time consuming. However, if you're feeling overwhelmed or frustrated, that's ok! Here's how to fall in love with your curls again.
There are a lot of things that can make your curl care journey difficult, and misplacing your tools is one of them. However, there are a lot of curl care hacks you can master to help you manage your curls in a pinch. For example, if you've lost your diffuser grab a small colander instead. Cup curls in the basin and use the holes to aerate curls while drying.
When it comes to products, you can hack products you own instead of buying more. If your curls are feeling weighed down with product, you can create your own clarifying curl care treatment. Mix a small amount of baking soda with your favorite gentle cleansing shampoo, and give your scalp a good scrub. This will remove build up, refresh curls, and encourage blood flow to the scalp. The best thing? You probably already have baking soda right in your pantry.
Saving time on your curl care can help your fall in love with your strands again. Try to examine your curl care routine to figure out ways you can multitask. For example, add your deep conditioning treatment to your shower or bathing routine. After you've washed and conditioned, squeeze the excess water from your strands and apply deep conditioner. Cover with a plastic shower cap, and finish up your shower routine. The heat from the shower will active the deep conditioner under the cap. This is also great to do while enjoying a bath.
Instead of buying a separate leave in conditioner, you can make your conditioner multitask. After shampooing, apply conditioner throughout your strands. Instead of rinsing, leave the conditioner in your strands and use it to style. This will save you time, as well as money since you won't need to invest in another leave in conditioner.
