Hi Kind Friends!
Today I am happy to present to you a no-fuss curly hair routine. Watch the above video to find out my styling techniques. I hope it helps you streamline your routine because I know having only a 10 minute routine for my hair has been a lifesaver.
Before we get started, I recommend reading/watching this video: Why I Don’t Use Shampoo. I’ve been shampoo-free for a few years now and my hair has significantly less frizz.
My curly routine:
- After co-washing my hair in the shower with the Alba Botanicals Body Builder Mango Conditioner, I brush my hair and let it air dry. Once it’s mostly dry I let it sit in a bun until I’m ready to style it. The bun gives my hair more body.
- For a leave-in conditioner and heat protectant I use the Macadamia Healing Oil Spray. For people following the co-washing method I would actually recommend not using the Macadamia brand since they have silicones in their products (leading to product build up in your hair) but I still use the brand because my husband loves how it makes my hair smell, ha! So since I use silicone products I do have to de-gunk my hair every few months with exfoliating treatments. If you are using a regular shampoo, than you shouldn’t have problems with silicone build up.
- To heat style I use the Conair You Wrap and Wave Styler. I love my natural curls but as the day goes on they tend to fall flat so that’s why I emphasize a few pieces of hair using the Conair wand. It gives a beautiful natural look.
- Then to add some texture to my hair I use my favorite product, the Organix/OGX Moroccan Sea Salt Spray and then I scrunch it.
- Lastly, I apply a hair spray from theBalm and put my hair half up.
Heatless Option: On days where I want to give my hair a break from heat, I’ll use just the Moroccan Sea Salt Spray and the Healing Oil Spray and then have my hair sit in a few small buns before letting it out. It takes longer and the style doesn’t stay as long but it does give a similar result.
What are your go-to styling products? What about your favorite conditioner? I’d love to check out your recommendations.
