We curly girls love a good defined curl, right?! 💦💦💦
Let us share with you our secret sauce to get our thirsty curls quenched and super-defined.
We like to start with giving our curls a hydration injection. Our secret weapon for this is plain, odourless, non-flavoured....yoghurt. Yes, the stuff you get at the supermarket.
If your hair loves protein, you can use greek yoghurt as it has double the levels of protein.
You mix 500 gram of organic (greek) yoghurt with 2 tablespoons of aloe vera juice and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a container and stir well until you have a smooth delicious texture.
Apply it to dry, fully detangled curls soaking your strands from root to ends. Once your curls are evenly coated, put your hair under a shower cap. Leave the mixture in for 2 hours and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
We are now ready to clarify our curls. Make an apple cider vinegar mix by mixing apple cider vinegar with an equal amount of water. Put the mixture in a water spray bottle, spritz your strands and give your scalp a good rub!
Clarify check, it is time to wash! Use a co-wash to cleanse your curls. Steer clear of shampoos as most of them can be quite stripping, undoing all your hard work. Apply from root to ends, put on a shower cap and leave on for about 20 minutes.
Your curls are now ready for a clay rinse. We like to use Bentonite. Clay masks can be messy, so tread with caution here. To get the best results, apply the clay in thin layers, separating the curls to prevent tangling and clumping. Let the clay sit for a minimum of 15 minutes.
You have made it to the final step. We are ready to style those curls! Apply your leave-in conditioner in the shower to make sure your curls get all the hydration they need. Apply from root to ends until your curls are fully coated. Continue with a gel or creme of your choice. Rake and shake. Curls done, thirst quenched!
