Picture Perfect Curls 1

 Check yourself before you wreck yourself.  You get out of your curls what you put in, and if your feeding  them crap, it will show. Make sure you are using either a no-poo cleanser or a high quality, Curl Girl Approved cleanser that does NOT contain sodium lauryl sulfate. Look for sodium laureth sulfate if your curls respond better to a sudsy cleanse even over options that are sulfate free. This is one of the most important parts of the equation for healthy curls.
Using harsh detergent cleansers can prevent any other products from performing as they were
intended to. Read: don't wash  your hair with Suave and complain that your Climate Control isn't defining your curls. It can take a few tries to find the cleansing routine that your curls respond to best, but now that you know what you're looking for, and have a few quality options, the "try and see" routine should be far less overwhelming than ever before.  We have trial size bottles of  Deva and Ouidad cleansers, and many more available for purchase in the Salon.

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 …

Another Reason Keratin Treatments are Bad for Curly HAir - pt. 26385926

Post keratin and it turned her hair into dry mush. If that's even a thing. I guess it is, because I see if with keratin victims all of the time.  We fixed her all up with Ouidad Cleansing Oil, Curl Qeuncher Condish Moisture Lock leave in, Climate Control Gel and Shine Glaze. Jiggity.
