10 Curly Cues

We are on a curly hair kick this month!

Thanks to Eufora, they have come up with 10 Curly Cues to keep your curls looking amazing all day!

Whats better than Eufora, which they happen to be our favorite products to use on curly hair.

 

1) HANDS OFF CURLY LOCKS

Running your hands through your curls and waves disrupts the curl pattern and creates dreaded frizz.

 

2) BAN THE BRUSH

Brushing curls results in a frizzy, dull finish. A wide toothed comb should be your go-to detangling tool.

 

3) BLOT DRY- DON’T RUB

Freshly cleansed curls should be gently scrunched or blotted with a Eufora microfiber. Never rub dry.

(You can purchase a Eufora microfiber towel at Brush Strokes for $15.50. It will change your life!)

 

4) STAY HYDRATED

Make a great moisturizing conditioner, such as Curl’n Enhancing Conditioner, your best friend. Hydrated curls are more manageable, soft and shiny.

(Curl’n Enhancing Conditioner – $26.50)

 

5) CUSTOMIZE

Is your hair fine, frizzy and dull? Or thick, heavy, coarse and manic for moisture? When it comes to curls, one size does not fit all. There are infinite shapes, sizes and textures, so be sure to ask your stylist to help select a daily care regimen perfect for your unique curls.

 

6) TURN DOWN THE HEAT

Curly hair is super vulnerable to damage from hot tools such as blow dryers and flat irons, so allow curls to air dry whenever possible. If you must blow dry, use a diffuser on low or medium heat. Ditto for curling and flat irons.

 

7) THE EXTRA TLC.

Every curly girl needs a weekly moisture infusion ritual. Indulge yourself, and make time for a deep conditioning treatment using Curl’n Nourishing Treatment to strengthen, moisturize and keep your curls looking their best.

(Curl’n Nourishing Treatment – $26.50)

 

8) SUPPLEMENT YOUR SHINE

The twists and tunnels of curly hair don’t reflect as much light as smooth, straight hair, making curls look dull and dry. For curls that look shiny, healthy and frizz free, add a great shine product such as Smooth’n Oil Therapy to your hair care regimen.

(Smooth’n Oil Therapy – $39)

 

9) COCKTAIL TIME

Curls thrive on that personal touch when it comes to styling, so “cocktailing” products can create some of the best styling and finishing solutions. Add a bit of Smooth’n Oil Therapy or Pure Polish to Forming Cream to amp up frizz control, manageability and shine. Combine Sculpture and Illuminate for super shiny, soft control with a boost of color protection! Experiment and invent your unique curly cocktail.

(Pure Polish – $30.50, Forming Cream – $26)

 

10) SNIP IT – SNIP IT GOOD

Keeping curly hair well-manicured will help eliminate frizzy ends, and an expert cut will ensure you make the most of your personal curl pattern and texture.

Hair Care – The Natural Way

Caring for those beautiful curls can be somewhat difficult if you don’t know where to start…

Lucky for us, we have two amazing stylists (Melodie & Krystal) that not only have natural hair themselves but have mastered their technique in helping others style and care for their beautiful do’s.

First things first – MAINTENANCE:

As you may have guessed, how you care for your hair is extremely important! You don’t always need the most expensive products but you need to have quality products that “vibe” with your hair.

There are different types of curls out there, so not all products are going to work with every curl. Depending on how you like to style your hair from day to day can also determine which products are best for you.

BEST BASIC PRODUCTS TO HAVE ON HAND…

1) Leave In Moisturizer – To keep that frizz at bay, a leave in moisturizer will help calm those fly always and make your hair more manageable.

2) Oil – Another frizz reducer, oil will also give your hair a high shine look.

3) Cream/Gel – Based on the density of your hair, whether it’s fine, medium or thick, a cream or gel product will give your hair the hold you need to style your however you like.

When combing these products together, your locking in the moisture which will help your hair last longer between washes. A great way to remember these products is referring to them as the L.O.C Method.

L – Leave in

O – Oil

C – Cream (or gel if you like that better)

 

Here is a great video explaining the L.O.C method from softsheencarson youtube channel, which includes Dark & Lovely Au Naturale Products.

Jane Iredale has released two new amazing products.

– Blink in a Smoky Eye Kit – Its a beautifully created kit with 5 eye shadow colors and 3 contouring colors to create an endless amount of day or night time smoky eyes. Also included is an instruction booklet on how to create the perfect smoky eye.

– Forever Red Just Kissed Cheek and Lip Stain – Before they released the Forever Red, there was only Forever Peach, which was a huge hit! There are many great things about these Just Kissed Cheek and Lip stain! They double for a blush stain which will last all day. Also, the color will change or adjust according to the chemistry in your skin, so it doesn’t look the same on every person. It adjusts to your skin tone to make sure that the color pops with your skin!
