Crisis Scenario.

You have an upcoming date, but the day has left your hair high and very dry with no time to deep condition, rinse, and style before you hit the town!

There is a solution! Click here to get the whole story

Do you risk showing up looking ‘extra crispy’, or do you take action? (Psst! The correct answer is “Take Action!”)

Action plan:

  1. Swing by your nearest Walgreens.
  2. Grab a couple of items in the ORS Monoi line!

A luxe oil infusion backed by the hair-care creatives at ORS AND 1,000+ years of island culture?

Yes please, and thank you!

Monoi oil is an ancient Polynesian infusion that combines the sweet scent and soothing power of the Tahitian gardenia flower. Blended with the cortex-penetrating goodness of beloved coconut oil, the ORS Monoi line can be part of your maintenance and styling routine.

To keep your date hair out of the desert zone, grab a bottle of the Monoi Oil Anti-Breakage Oil Fusion in the hair care aisle, scoot on home, and follow these steps as modeled for us by curlfriend and NaturallyCurly Editor Alex Wilson!

This joy is real!

First things first: spritz it up! Get your curls a little moist, then we’re going to lock that H2O right in where it needs to be.

Step two is getting smoothed and structured with your go-to curl pudding, milk, or creme. Because we like to keep things in the family here, Alex used ORS Anti-Breakage Curl Perfecting Smoothie Creme on her hair. You'll want to use about a nickel to half dollar sized dollop per section according to your length.

Time to get in formation!

Not only is this creme going to shape your curls, it is also going to help keep them in place. No need to brush your date’s duds down after a snuggle sesh! Speaking of brushes, you’ll want to get this Smoothie Creme all through your hair with a good paddle brush. Your hair will be good and saturated at this point, so you are not going to hear any snapping... unless someone tells you just how fierce you are.

Got finer, less spiraled, or spaced out curls?

It’s all gorgeous, and it’s all good. Just finger twist across your head to coax those cute springy locks out of hiding! After you have all moisturized and shaped your curls, grab your hair dryer, pop on that diffuser, and flip your hair over the dryer for maximum bounce in minimum time. Bonus: you get a good deep stretch in!

Finally, we're going to add a little insurance to this whole deal. Sure, the world in your bathroom is great hair central, but we all know how the outside likes to mix it up (surprise April Showers, anyone?). Gently rub a small amount of the Monoi Oil Anti-Breakage Oil Fusion over your curls for shine, frizz-protection, and a hint of Tahitian scent!

A little goes a long way!

Voila!

A spring look for a great date!

You’re ready to hit the town arm in arm with someone special, looking cute and collected! Best of all, you didn’t have to do more than walk into a corner Walgreens and back home. And because Walgreens is offering a FREE third product with the purchase of two through the rest of April, you can check out the Anti-Breakage Edge Control Gel, and the Anti-Breakage Straight Silk Sheen for more moisturized, length saving looks at a lower price. The more Monoi, the merrier!

Is this a look you want to show off in a romantic setting? Go paint the town pink (it’s spring guys, think thematically), but take a few selfies and tag us @naturallycurly! We love seeing y’all looking good!
