Texture Tips: CURLS Rehab Tips
by Mahisha Dellinger on Saturday, August 15, 2009
Curly hair is the most temperamental textured tress on this planet. Frizz from touching the hair too often, limp-noodle curls from over-conditioning, dry, straw-like curls from under-conditioning or over-shampooing, and seasonal changes that make us wonder, “What on God’s green earth has happened to my beautiful curls?” are all common curly girl experiences.
You can help rehab your clients. Push your curly hair clients into a mini-boot camp for a healthy curls recovery.
CURLS Rehab Tips
- Strip, but don’t tease! Encourage your clients to start with a clean palate every three months, especially the product junkies who just cannot seem to say “no” to any product that is curl related. Offer a “CURLS Detox” cleansing as a part of your services rendered. Choose a clarifying shampoo that is ph balanced and contains mild surfactants to avoid over drying the hair.
Product Recommendation: Pure Curls Clarifying Shampoo.
- Product Relativity – While some curlies like to “cocktail” two or more products together to create the perfect coil, advise against mixing styling products from different product lines. Oftentimes active ingredients will collide and cause the white ball effect or harden up on the hair. Encourage your clients to try one product line at a time. CURLS offers a complete regime of products for every curl pattern, from wavy to kinky.
- Defrizz & Debunk! Debunk the myth that the more products applied on the hair the better the curls. The truth is the number one cause of frizz is product overload. Simplify their styling regime - recommend only one styling product and one liquid moisturizer/2nd day curl refresher.
Product Recommendation: Curl Gel-les’c Quenched Curls Moisturizer.
