Diane Bailey, the Beauty Ambassador of SheaMoisture is our guest expert on Curly Q&A this week. Of course, I had to take advantage and ask her a question myself. (Hey--even the NaturallyCurly editors need some guidance every now and then, too). Here is my question:

What are you recommendations for cocktailing a regimen to fight frizz on tight color-treated curls?

Diane's answer:

1. Finger-detangle curly hair to prepare hair for a pre-shampoo.

2. Pre-shampoo with coconut oil. Leave on hair for 15 minutes.

3. Shampoo out with sulfate-free Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Shampoo. With large-tooth comb, gently detangle ends before rinsing shampoo out. This emollient rich shampoo smooths cuticles as it cleanses. Rinse thoroughly.

4. Create a personalized hair treatment with SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen, Grow & Restore MaskTo make your cocktail, in a bowl with the mask, add half a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil and a teaspoon of honey, and mix together. Section hair into four sections. Apply cocktail with brush to the hair from roots-to-tips. For the best results when using cocktail treatments, use steamer for 30 minutes. Gently comb treatment with large-tooth comb. Rinse thoroughly. Hair is ready for styling.

5. Blot hair with cotton t-shirt. Hair must be wet. Apply Curl Enhancing Smoothie to each curl from root to tips. Roll or finger curl individually and place curls as they fall. Pin-curl sections that may appear straighter.

6. Dry with diffuser. Hold head back for hair to fall in place. Once hair is 90% dry gently open curls and style for more fullness and volume.

7. Spray SheaMoisture Raw Shea Reconstructive Elixir into hands, and lightly apply to hair. Throughout day, if hair experiences frizz due to humidity, etc., mist SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Shine Moisture Mist to freshen curls and reduce frizz.
