The Curl Care Routine For Gorgeous Curls
Daily routine:

Before going to bed, it's important to wrap your curls. Use a silk scarf or bonnet to protect your strands from damage overnight. Before putting on the scarf, pineapple your curls on top of your head with a loose hair tie. If you're not the type to use a silk scarf, consider a silk pillowcase.

Hair and scalp oils:

Particularly for our kinky coily girls, using oil to take care of scalps and strands are a must. If you're feeling as though your scalp is dry, it's time to oil up. However, don't overuse the product as it can cause curls to become weighed down at the scalp and limit volume.

Weekly routine:

Co-wash curls 2-3 times per week, but try to avoid washing curls daily. Daily washes will dry curls out. After cowashing, this is a great time to apply the product needed to get through until the next wash day.


After curls have been washed and conditioned, it's time to add product. Select products that are low in parabens and sulfates, and are designed for curly hair. Products should be applied in this order:

Leave in conditioner, which should be spritzed throughout strands for even application.

Mousse, which can be scrunched throughout hair to give definition and hold.

Gel, to help hold curls in place and limit frizz.

Finally, finish up with a styling cream to help lock it all into place.

Allow curls to air dry, or use a diffuser if in a rush to speed up the process.

Monthly routine:

Twice a month, consider using a deep conditioning or protein treatment on curls. This will be dependent upon what your curls need and the protein treatment in particular shouldn't be overdone to avoid damaging curls.

Every 4-6 weeks, schedule a trim with a curl care trained stylist. Some curly girls can go longer between, but anything longer than 10 weeks should be avoided. This will allow for the removal of dead ends and splits.
