We've got a recipe to help winterize your curls

Do you suffer from "Winter Curls Syndrome?:" Dry, brittle, lifeless curls that no longer respond to your normal holy grail regime?

Harsh winds, freezing snow and polluted rain all wreck havoc on your delicate tresses. I created a new homemade recipe, Avocado and Banana Hair Mask, to help restore, rejuvenate and moisturize your hair using ingredients you can find in your kitchen.

Step 1

Step 4

Step 5

Here is what I did.

  1. I clarified my hair, to start fresh, with CURLS Pure Curls Clarifying Shampoo. Remember to ask for a free sample of this with your order, as you only need to clarify 1 time every three to four months.
  2. I applied the Avocado & Banana Mask to my wet hair, and covered it with a plastic cap. I let it set for 10 minutes in the shower.
  3. I thoroughly rinsed out the Avocado & Banana Mask with warm water.
  4. I cleansed again (to help remove the extra mask particles that did not rinse away), this time gently with CURLS Curlicious Curls Cleansing Cream.
  5. I finished by conditioning with CURLS Coconut Sublime Moisturizing Conditioner.

The result? SUPER soft, shiny, bouncy curls!
