Curly hair can be difficult to manage, care for and maintain. There are many do’s and don’ts when it comes to caring for your curly hair and this is due to the fact that the hair follicles are different to those of straight or wavy hair. Curly hair is prone to dryness and breakage because the texture of the hair can restrict the natural oils in your scalp to travel down the strands of hair. This results in the bottom half of your hair being at risk of damage from heat tools, harsh weather elements and hair coloring. However, here at Advanced Cosmetica, we are here to help with your hair woes with our Six Star Series Shampoo and Conditioner Duos.
Below are some tips on how to care for your curly hair using our range of products.Use Natural Products
The use of harsh chemicals can damage the lower segments of your hair where the natural oils cannot reach which will result in breakage. In order to maintain healthy hair it is best to use a shampoo and conditioner that is natural and contains ingredients that will not harm your hair. The Advanced Cosmetica Six Star Series Haircare range has been formulated with an aloe vera foundation and features ingredients such as botanicals, essential oils, vitamins and minerals which hydrate and nourish your hair strands and naturally cleanse and detoxify your scalp and hair at the same time.Hydration Is Key
It is commonly thought that hydration in haircare comes from conditioners or hair masks that are advertised as rich and nourishing, and that shampoo is used typically to ‘clean’ the hair before the conditioner provides the moisture. However, when we apply conditioner, we typically focus on applying it to the ends of the hair strands. With this in mind, shampoo is the product that targets the whole head of hair and therefore, the shampoo that you use on your curls should be ultra-hydrating. As the Advanced Cosmetica Six Star Series range has aloe vera as a foundation and contains other natural hydrating ingredients such as Moroccan Argan oil and Australian Native Macadamia oil - these shampoos will be perfect to provide a boost of hydration to your hair from root to ends. Unlike other synthetic conditioners the Advanced Cosmetica’s conditioners should be used on the scalp from the roots to the tips of your hair increasing hair growth and strength.Focus On A Set Routine
On top of using your Advanced Cosmetica Six Star Series shampoo and conditioner, it is important to follow the correct routine to care for your curls. Experts recommend that you should utilise the below steps to ensure you are protecting your curls.
- Never brush curly hair with a hairbrush, rather opt for a wide-toothed comb & brush to ensure that you aren’t splitting the strands from their ‘groups’.
- Hot water can be drying for the hair and for curly hair this is something to avoid, wash your hair in lukewarm to cold water to prevent moisture loss.
- Do not over wash your hair, it is important to avoid stripping the natural oils in your hair so keep washes to up to 3x per week for loose curls and co-weekly for tight curls.
