Do Not Rinse Method

Winter means dry. Dry air, dry hair. Dry air, crazy dry hair for your naturally curly hair, right? If it's not the summer frizz it's the winter dryness we're fighting. As a protective measure leave your conditioner in your hair, or only rinse out a little. This Do Not Rinse method is best done with a lighter hand for silkies and a heavier hand for coarser varieties of curls. When in doubt, rinse out a little and add more before applying styling products if needed.

Devacurls's Heaven in Hair is my CurlGirl Favorite pick. Deva's One Condition is also a good pick, I find the "WOW" factor a little more with the Heaven in Hair, though. Apply One Condition or Heaven in Hair as you normally would, in the shower.  DO NOT RINSE.   Silkies may prefer to only leave a dab of conditioner in and follow up with Ouidad's moisture lock leave in conditioner. Add the size of 2 peas, rub in hand vigorously, and scrunch through wet hair before you begin your styling routine. The One Condition or Heaven in Hair options make the hair take about twice as long to dry. It's worth it, trust me.

Use this luscious creme as a leave in to achieve the Curl Girl WOW factor at home!



after-  with a simple Rake and Shake style that can be achieved at home in less than 10 minutes.

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 …
