I’m Keturah, NaturallyCurly’s E-Commerce Manager. I have medium porosity, 3C curls. I am a natural girl that enjoys my hair straight from time to time. The one thing I struggle most with is scalp care. Creating a regimen that favors a healthy scalp is key. In my past life I wouldn’t dare rock my curls because I didn’t know how to manage them. Not to give away my age, but I grew up in the era of Creamy Crack (aka relaxers). I wasn’t allowed to get one, so my focus was always to achieve that look the best way I knew how. That was constant flat ironing and a TON of Blue Magic. I am older and wiser now, so I have discovered a better way to care for my curls. They are strong and grow like crazy! I LOVE my curls because I figured how to take care of them. Check out my regimen using the 2019 Best of the Best Editor’s Choice picks!
I use the Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Tea Tree Scalp Treatment the night before wash day. I also use it after washing.
I love to use a combination of shampoos. I use the SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Shampoo on my hair, but the Briogeo Scalp Revival Charcoal + Coconut Oil Micro-Exfoliating Shampoo on my scalp.
For conditioning I prefer to use the SheaMoisture 100% Virgin Coconut Oil Daily Hydration Conditioner.
Depending on what my hair needs I will use either the Ouidad Curl Immersion Triple Treat Deep Conditioner or Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Hair Cap System. My hair is usually pretty hydrated so if I over condition then my curls are weighed down.
CG Tip: I love the Cantu for Natural Hair Curl Stretcher Cream Rinse. I experience shrinkage with my 3C curls, but this gives me some length back.
My favorite mousse of all time is Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse. I use mousse to help give me definition.
I finish off with the Darshana Natural Indian Hair Oil.
For refreshing my curls between wash days, I like to use a combination of the steam from my shower, Curly Hair Solutions H20 Water Bottle, Design Essentials Almond & Avocado Curl Enhancing Mousse, and Moroccan Oil Curl Re-energizing Spray. Plus, I use Creme of Nature Pure Honey Moisture Infusion Edge Control to help smooth my buns and ponytails!
