Women who possess natural hair want curls that are always bouncy and frizz-free. When you have a good hair day, it can make you feel more confident. However, even if you sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase or wrap your afro hair in a satin or silk headscarf, your once perfectly styled curls can look limp in the morning following a night’s sleep. So, how can you refresh your afro curls and return their definition after sleeping? Here are five ways that you can begin the revival process.
Use a Spray Bottle Filled With Water On Your Curly Hair
Depending on how limp your curls are, you might need a light spray of water to revive your curls. Begin spraying a light amount of water all over your hair. This water mixture can also contain our Leave-In Conditioner with Manuka Honey And Avocado Oil. These ingredients can help your curls spring back to life.
Once this mixture has been sprayed, take a small amount of our Curl Elongating Gel With Flaxseed Oil & Rosewater and spread it from the ends of your strands to your roots. Then, turn your head upside down, scrunch your strands for definition, and bounce. This formula will also stretch your curls naturally to give you an elongated look.
Create A Natural Haircare Routine Which Will Continually Hydrate And Lock Moisture In
In order for your curls to look their best at all times they need moisture to thrive.
Our water-based natural products are created using hydrating oils from flaxseed, coconut, and avocado, which can provide your natural hair with this moisture. Additionally, our products are also made without petroleum, mineral oil, sulphates, and alcohol, meaning that it does not contain harmful ingredients which can cause curls that are overly frizzy, limp, or prone to breakage. It also means you can take advantage of defined curls for longer without resorting to more wash days than necessary.
For instance, if you want to fingerstyle your afro hair into curls or waves, massage our Curling Creme With Coconut & Jamaican Black Castor Oils through your natural hair from roots to ends. This mixture can help give your curls volume, shine, and bounce without weighing them down. Once you have used your fingers to create curls or coils, remember to scrunch your hair and then let it dry.
Alternatively, if your afro curls need a slight infusion of moisture, use a light spritz of our Everyday Curl Refresh With Coconut & Jamaican Black Castor Oils which can also diminish hair breakage and lead to longer, healthy curls.
Refresh Your Afro Hair Before Going To Sleep
If you ensure your natural curls are protected overnight, you will not need to spend much time reviving them in the morning. So, wet your natural hair before you sleep and apply a leave-in conditioner, curling mousse, or gel to keep your curls hydrated in a pineapple up-do using a silk or satin headscarf.
Our Curling Mousse With Flaxseed Oil & Rosewater can prepare your afro hair for low-maintenance styles like up-dos or twist out’s. This is because the two ingredients in this mixture can add shine, soften the hair, and provide a strong hold, especially when tossing and turning at night.
Soak Your Afro Curls In The Shower For Two Minutes
To help revive your curls in the morning, run your hair under the shower for two minutes. Do not run your fingers through your natural curls; the main point is to offer hydration. Once the two minutes are up, apply our leave-in conditioner and scrunch your hair.
Adopt The Pin Curl Method To Refresh Your Natural Hair
Depending on the volume of your hair, begin the pin curling method by diving your limp curls into smaller even sections, securing them with a clip. You must only use this method on curls that are frizzy or frayed. Spray water on all these sections and then apply a small amount of our Curl Elongating Gel to each section.
Then wrap a section around a finder under a curl is formed. If you possess larger curls, you can use two fingers. Once the curls are formed, slide them off your fingers and attach them to your scalp using a clip or bobby pin. Leave these pins in your afro hair for two or three minutes. Next, you can use a diffuser on low heat to help set and dry these curls. Then, remove the pins to reveal revived curls.
Incorporating a quick morning routine for your afro curls can help keep them defined for longer and makes it easier to stick to good hair habits all year round. Our natural hair products can also help you extend your curls' lifespan naturally until your next wash day, regardless of your hair texture or curl type.
