Everyone in the natural hair community wants to get the best curl definition in their hair. Whether it’s from a wash n’ go, twist-out, or perm rod set.
Have your ever struggled trying many different regimes and products that still don’t correctly define your beautiful curls?
Getting the maximum curl definition leaves you with frizz-free, tight, bouncy, soft, and smooth curls.
Doing the right routine and using the right hair products will help aid in achieving the best curl definition for your hair. It will enhance your curls and make them easier to maintain and style.
This article will help you correctly define your curls and what products to use without having to watch tons of YouTube videos, buy useless products, and multiple Google searches.
Clarifying Your Curls
Clarifying your hair is the most important step of properly defining your curls. You must always start with clean and product-free hair.
Cleansing is the base of your hair routine. If your hair is not clarified and cleansed correctly it will affect the rest of your routine and results.
Having a great, gentle cleanser for your hair will remove build-up from oils, residue, and products that are weighing your hair down and clogging your pores without stripping your hair of its natural oils and shine.
It works for all hair types and it is a gentle cleanser formulated with natural almond and avocado.
It gently cleanses your hair, does not strip your hair of its natural oils, and leaves your curls hydrated and soft.
Conditioning Your Curls
Hydration and moisture are the key elements to having healthy, defined curls. Dehydrated curls are hard to manage and result in tangled, dry, and frizzy hair.
Properly moisturizing your hair creates soft, healthy, shiny, and manageable curls.
Moisture improves the overall health of your hair strands.
Try the Design Essentials Natural Almond & Avocado Wash Day Deep Moisture Masque to deeply penetrate the hair shaft and replenish your curls.
The key ingredients of natural almond nourish hair and add shine and avocado adds moisture and strengthens curls to prevent future breakage.
To allow the deep conditioner to infuse moisture deep within the hair shaft deep condition for 15 minutes under a hooded dryer on warm heat to open the cuticles, allowing the moisture to easily penetrate the hair shaft.
Once you’ve rinsed your hair you will see an instant result of improved curl definition, shine, and elasticity.
Time to Style
The products you use after you have clarified and conditioned your hair will sculpt, smooth, protect, and define your curls.
I recommend having a spray bottle filled with water to keep your hair hydrated while styling your curls. It is important to use products that will keep your hair moisturized and tame frizz.
Mixing or layering products is a great method to achieve the best curl definition possible. Dynamic duos that work wonders to define your curls are Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Moisturizing & Detangling Leave-in Conditioner and Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse.
The use of these two products will result in flawless definition with soft and voluminous curls.
To begin styling start with Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Moisturizing & Detangling Leave-in Conditioner as soon as you get out of the shower on wet hair. Spray on sectioned parts of your hair then detangle using a wide-tooth comb from tips to root.
After you have combed through with your leave-in. Work on each section applying Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse.
Use a Denman brush or the rake & shake method to add definition to your hair. For a maximum definition, finger coil your curls and scrunch them up towards the root of your hair.
Lastly allow your hair to air-dry or diffuse. It is important not to touch your curls while they are drying this can ruin your curl definition or cause frizz to emerge.
If you want voluminous curls, I recommend using a diffuser on low-heat to dry your hair.
Maintaining Curl Definition
Once your hair has dried and your curls are popping! It’s time to maintain these curls until it’s the next time for your wash n’ go. A wash n’ go can last up to a week until it’s time to wash those curls again.
Tips to increase the longevity of your curls include:
• Tie your hair up in a pineapple and use a silk/satin bonnet to protect your ends from friction causing frizz and breakage.
• Avoid excessively touching or running your hands through your hair. This will cause frizz and ruin the curl definition.
• To refresh your hair, mix water and your leave-in into a spray bottle and spray your hair to refresh your curls, or use Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Daily Curl Revitalizer to refresh your curls.
