To achieve curls that will turn heads, you must keep them clean and moisturised. However, getting healthier afro hair does not require hours in a salon. For those days where it doesn't feel like there's enough minutes in the day, here is our quick 5-step wash day routine that should give you thriving afro curls every time.
Shampoo Using The Tips Of Your Fingers
Start a simple wash day by applying a sulphate-free shampoo mixture onto your scalp. Using your fingertips, gently massage the shampoo on your scalp rather than your hair to remove any build-up. Our Hydration Shampoo with Manuka Honey can be a great sulphate-free choice for you as it nourishes and cleanses your scalp simultaneously.
It can also leave your hair smooth and tangle-free, making the detangling process more manageable. As manuka honey is a natural humectant, it can also reduce dryness while keeping your afro hair more manageable. After working this mixture through all parts of your scalp, rinse it off thoroughly.
Apply A Moisturising Conditioner Directly To Your Afro Hair
After rinsing off the shampoo, squeeze a generous amount of conditioner into the palm of your hand. Apply it to your hair from root to tip rather than your scalp. Adding a product like our Moisture Rich Conditioner with Manuka Honey & Avocado to restore moisture and slip to your afro curls will aid you to detangle you hair with ease.
Detangle With A Wide-Tooth Comb
Once the conditioner is on your afro hair, detangle your hair using a wide tooth comb starting from the ends of your curls and slowly moving up to your roots. This action is required to stop your comb from getting stuck. Next, start combing through your hand in one area and move on to another. Sectioning your afro into sections is particularly useful when your hair is thick.
Use A Leave-In Conditioner To Seal The Moisture In
After the wash and condition process, use a good Leave-In Conditioner to replenish your curls' moisturising levels while paying particular attention to your ends. We recommend our a Leave-In Conditioner which contains which contains manuka honey and avocado oil. You only need a minimal amount of this product on your palms to use it all over your hair. Both avocado oil and manuka honey can work together to banish frizz and regrow thinning hair.
Use A Natural Oil Mixture To Finish Nurturing Your Curls
Applying an oil mixture right after a moisturising treatment like a leave-in conditioner can keep the moisture in your afro hair for longer. Our Curling Crème with Coconut & Jamaican Black Castor Oils can give you more curl definition without weighing them down in the process. It can also give your afro hair a natural bounce and shine. Use a wide-tooth comb to distribute this product evenly through your natural hair. Then let your curls air dry or style any way you desire.
Your afro hair does not have to be time-consuming to manage. What is key is finding the right products, as well as keeping your routine simple to achieve stronger, healthier afro hair.
