This Halloween, you don’t have to go door to door asking for treats for your hair. We have compiled some of the best tricks and our favorite products that will help your hair look awesome and anything but frightening this Halloween season.
TREAT: Leave-in Conditioner
Leave-in conditioners are an essential part of hair care. Your hair can become damaged with too much sun, heat, or dry weather. A good leave-in conditioner will protect and hydrate your hair. Try this one for starters!
This is a favorite among naturally curlies. It’s a great way to detangle and detoxify your hair with all natural ingredients. Using lavender, rosemary, marigolds, and vanilla, this leave-in restores moisture and leaves your hair smelling like flowers.
TRICK: Awesome Mousse
A good mousse will help your curls retain their shape without that flaky texture that hair spray often gives. Here’s a suggestion:
This mousse is soft and versatile for your hair styling needs. It is free of silicones and parabens, but the natural glycerides and oils will leave your hair soft and shiny. As the name suggests, this product is great for styling your hair in a wrap. Or, simply apply this solution to your hair and let it dry naturally.
TREAT: Wide-toothed comb
Wide-toothed combs are the best for detangling your hair without breaking or damaging it. You can use a wide-toothed comb for your weekly deep conditioning or your daily comb-through. Here’s a great example of a good quality comb:
Why is it ultraclean? This magical comb offers microban antimicrobial technology that keeps bacteria from growing on plastic. It comes in a variety of colors and has a slip-resistant finish.
TRICK: Frizz Fighter Serum
If your hair is prone to frizz, it’s crucial that you fight it off with a serum or spray. There are lots of serums and sprays out there, but here’s a suggestion:
This serum is rich in nutrients that are healthy for your hair. It works to smooth the cuticle and repair damaged ends, while reducing frizz. Simply apply this serum to your hair after you shampoo and see immediate results—shiny, beautiful and frizz-free hair.
TREAT: A Satin Pillowcase
Why is satin better than cotton? Cotton pillowcases have a rougher surface than satin, creating friction that is damaging to your hair. Try switching over to a satin pillowcase to preserve your hair and protect it. Here’s a great brand to try:
Charmeuse is the finest woven satin on the market. It has a lingerie quality, so you know it’s top-of-the-line satin. Scent-Sation’s pillowcases are incredibly smooth, and will have you sleeping like a baby and protecting your hair!
TRICK: A Good Pomade
Pomade is a thick styling agent made of mostly oils. It’s great for styling if your hair is thicker, and it leaves the hair nice and shiny. If you want control over your hair, try this pomade:
Sounds tasty, doesn’t it? Your hair will love it. This pomade is made entirely of vegetables, and resembles thick, creamy caramel. Not only does this pomade style, but it acts as a humectant, locking in moisture and giving your hair shine.
TREAT: Hair Therapy Wrap
If your hair is dry and damaged, and in need of desperate repair, try using a hair therapy wrap. With the combination of heat and your favorite deep conditioner, hair therapy wraps work to restore your hair to healthy, shiny locks. You can purchase one on our very own CurlMart, which conveniently has directions on how to prepare your Hair Therapy Wrap.
This hair wrap can be heated through the microwave or the stove top. One size fits all, and it is reusable for your hair repair needs. Check it out!
TRICK: Second-Day Curl Enhancing Spray
Do your curls lose their bounce on the second day? A great trick to put the spring back in them is to spray them with an enhancing spray or rejuvenating mist. It helps your second day hair to look fresh without having to restyle it again. Try this one:
This spray is a great curl enhancer, and it’s healthy for your hair. It’s protein-free, paraben-free, and silicone-free, so you know this spray doesn’t have any ingredients that are harmful for your hair.
TREAT: Deep Conditioner
Every girl needs to deep conditioner her hair once in a while. Depending on how damaged or dry your hair is, you might want to deep condition more frequently. Deep conditioning every week will help your hair stay fresh and healthy by locking in moisture. Here’s a great deep conditioner that curlies love:
This deep conditioner works to moisturize and detangle your hair. Simply comb the conditioner through your hair, working from the root to the tip. Pile your hair on top of your head and wait about 30 minutes for your hair to drink in all the moisture. As soon as you rinse you will notice the difference!
TRICK: Thin Gel
Gels may be notorious for leaving your hair with a crunchy texture, but if you find the right kind of gel, it could aid your curls in amazing ways. A good thin gel that you can easily work through your locks will give it the hold and support curls need. Here’s our suggestion:
One of the most favored brands, Curly Hair Solutions does not disappoint! Try their styling gel, which is free of silicone, parabens, and protein. This gel is great for styling, and it won’t leave your hair crunchy. Simply apply the gel to your hair, wet or dry, and style as usual. I recommend scrunching your hair to give your curls that extra bounce.
