The right way to wash your curls!
It may seem like a pretty easy task right? Washing your hair? Actually, washing your hair can make or break your curls! The #BossCurlMethod is specific to curlies, because curly haired human's find it hard to keep their curls hydrated, but also not weighed down. So sit back...let's discuss wash days...
- Firstly, wet your hair, then add a small amount of Boss Curl Co conditioner to the ends, this will act as a barrier so you do not dry out your curls.
- When shampooing your hair, less is more, emulsify (that just means rub between your hands) to lather the Boss Curl Co Shampoo's, then only put the shampoo on your roots, you do not want to dry out the rest of your hair!
- When scrubbing your scalp, make sure it's not in a circular motion, just move your fingers in and out of your scalp so your curls do not tangle. You may also want to use a scalp scrubber - purchase one here.
- Rinse the shampoo, repeat if necessary. We also recommend using the Boss Curl Co. Clarifying shampoo every few weeks to get rid of build up. Product build up will weigh your curls down, this is a way to keep them bouncy and curly!
- Now it's time for conditioner! ONLY apply to the mid lengths and ends of hair, adding conditioner to your scalp will make those curls flat and weigh them down. We want BODY!
- Flip your hair over and work the conditioner through the mid to ends, detangle with a wet brush if needed (gently).
- Scrunch in the conditioner for added hydration and let sit for a few seconds.
- Rinse out with your hair upside down still (Using cold or Luke warm water), this means the water will hit the back of your hair NOT the top where we all have issues with flat frizzy curls. Water beating down onto your hair CAN cause lifeless curls. Using cooler water closes the cuticle meaning a little less frizz!
So as you can see, there is an art form to washing your curls! You can learn ALL of this by purchasing a Boss Curl Kit HERE and heading over to THE CURL CLUB on Facebook to be part of our amazing curl community where we teach you more tips like this!
