Curls Without Damage

I found the HEATCAP  not too long ago.  Watching the video, I became mesmerized.  Pop this big cap in the microwave, heat it up, pop it over your hair that is SET DRY in whatever curler you like, pin curl, roller, rod curler, CURLFORMER!!!, whatever.  Two minutes to steam it in the heatcap, two minutes to cool, then - badass locked in curls.  I wanted to call bullshit almost immediately. But - what if this thing actually worked?  I ordered one - it was either going to be a total flop, or, it would work, and I would be AMAZED.  Guess what? IT WORKS. LIKE A BEAST.  Sure, I could get the same results with a curling iron, but, these curls are totally damage free!!!  Remember, set your hair DRY, I would suggest running some styling lotion through your hair and then spritzing in a setting spray on top of the rollers- like Ouidad Styling Mist or White Sands Liquid Texture.

coconut oil treatment & apple cider vinegar rinse for curly hair

I'm a little obsessed with coconut oil right now.  I've been using it as a "pre-conditioner" in the salon, I melt anywhere from 2 tablespoons to 1/2 cup of coconut oil (depending on how much i need to really saturate the hair from root to end, then apply it to dry hair.

If you do this at home, you can do it hours before you plan to wash it - I sleep with it in my hair and wash it out with Loreal Professional Delicate Color Sulfate Free Shampoo the next morning. If you're a no-poo-er, I suggest using the Ouidad Cleansing Oil instead.  You can condition your hair as usual, or, for extra awesomeness, follow with an apple cider vinegar rinse  use up to half acv to half water, or try using 2 parts water to 1 part acv.  Let that site for at least 2 minutes, RINSE WELL.  Be SO careful not to get it in your eyes, it burns like a BITCH. It's not harsh on your hair, though - the acidity of the vinegar is actually very gentle on the cuticle helping to close it down as …
