What to Look for in a Product for Curly Hair?
Below are a list of things to consider for selecting a product for curly hair.
- Hair type: It is essential to know what kind of hair type the user has, whether he/she has a wavy, curly, coily, or normal hair type. There are certain products that specialise on one type of hair only, and there are others which can be used in any type of hair. That is why determining the hair type is important.
- Hair concerns: It is significant to know what kind of problems he/she has with his/her hair. Some products promise to moisturise and give the hair a shiny look, while other products protect the hair from breakages. There are also products that offer all-in-one solutions for the hair.
Hair texture: Determining the hair texture is also critical, so the user knows which product to use. One product might not be good with a specific hair texture, and some are good with different kinds.
Check If It Is Specific for Curly Hair
There are many products that cater to different types of hair. To know if the product is specific for curly hair, the user needs to check the product if it is specifically made for curl defining. A curl defining product is usually a leave-in product that helps moisturise and seal smoothness to the hair. It provides definition to curls and creates a bouncy movement on the curls, which makes it look lively and healthy. It creates a long-lasting moisturising effect on the hair and keeps it away from frizz.
The ingredients present in hair growth shampoo natural oils like peppermint oils, lavender oil, rosemary oils, jojoba oils and aloe vera. These organic ingredients stimulate hair growth. These ingredients give moisture and hydrates the scalp, allowing it to rejuvenate and grow cells. On the other hand, users should avoid products that have silicone and sulphate. Silicone isn’t toxic and is completely safe, however, it leaves the hair with hard to remove build-ups and makes the hair dry. Sulphate also is one thing to avoid because it can take away the moisture of the hair, leaving it dry and unhealthy. Go for a more natural product that contains oils and other organic ingredients to ensure that the hair stays healthy and vibrant.
How Many Products Should We Use on Curly Hair in the Same Routine?
It is most commonly advised to use not more than 5 products on the hair. Using more than 5 products may not be healthy for the hair, instead it can cause dryness and damage to the scalp. To avoid having dry and greasy hair, use some best hair-growth shampoos as first product to use on a hair routine. Wash away product build up from last night using shampoo. After washing with shampoo, the next step is cleansing. It is important to apply cleanser on a daily basis, as this will keep the scalp and hair healthy. After cleansing the hair and scalp, the next step is conditioning. Try looking for a conditioner that has high concentrations of plant based ingredients. Natural ingredients are always much better than chemical ones. Lastly is the styling. After fixing issues like having dry, brittle and frizzy hair on the previous steps, the final step is styling the hair to the user’s desired look. Try using products that have natural ingredients such as grapeseed oils, safflower oils and aloe vera. These ingredients help coat the hair and give it protection from a day’s activities.
