Curl Cocktails

No matter your curl type, all curlies want frizz-free, flawless curls that last and support your desired style. Styling success or failure with naturally curly hair, completely depends on the ability of the products to perform. Because no two curls are the same, it takes quite a variety of techniques and products to achieve a perfect and finished style. Some curls are soft in some areas are rough, wiry, and out of control in other sections, which makes it challenging to find one product that will solve all curly hair problems. In comes the art of cocktailing products. Follow these curly hair care steps for each curl type and you will be sure to fall in love with your curls all over again.

Loose Curl Cocktail 
Give your loose and wavy curls the support and bounce they need to look flawless with this cocktail:

1. Wash your hair thoroughly with Curly Hair Solutions Treatment Shampoo. The ingredients in this shampoo will strengthen each hair strand and deepen the “S” shape formation to allow better bounce to curls.
2. Spray Curl Keeper Slip on wet hair and wait 30 seconds before detangling your hair. The Slip will remove all tangles and knots without using heavy conditioners that weigh down loose fine hair.
3. Curl Keeper Original and Gel work together, ensuring that you have total frizz control with added support for long-lasting styles. First, apply a generous amount of Curl Keeper Original to wet hair from roots to ends. Then apply a small amount of Curl Keeper Gel from roots to ends or scrunch on ends. Both products will reactivate with water to allow for fabulous hair styling days, even on humid rainy days.

Medium Curl Cocktail
No matter the time of the year, medium curls will always need a balance of moisture and strength. Follow these steps for smooth, and frizz free curls:

1. Wash your hair thoroughly with Curly Hair Solutions Treatment Shampoo. Treatment Shampoo leaves the hair and scalp in optimum condition with no residue or build up. This is important step as your curls stay grouped for longer periods of time.
2. Apply Curly Hair Solutions Conditioner from roots to ends and be sure to rinse well. The Conditioner moisturizes evenly by neutralizing and adjusting the pH balance of your hair without leaving it greasy and dry. Its light weight formula never weighs your hair down.
3. Spray Curl Keeper Slip on wet hair and wait 30 seconds before combing to remove all tangles and knots.
4. Apply a generous amount of Curl Keeper Original from roots to ends. Remember the more frizz you have, the more Curl Keeper Original you will need. Use water to reactivate the product on the days in between washing for a longer lasting style.

Tight Curl Cocktail
Sometimes tight curls need some extra attention. This cocktail will give you effortless styling, even for the most stubborn curls.
