As a bleach blonde curly girl, Kiana’s Type 3c regimen is all about making sure her curls stay healthy and poppin’ despite her color maintenance. Through her journey as a blonde, Kiana’s discovered the products and tricks that boost her moisture and tone the brass. Check out what she voted for in this year’s Editors’ Choice awards, and how she uses them.


Wash Routine

Pre-Poo: The Mane Choice Heavenly Halo Herbal Hair Tonic & Soy Milk Deep Hydration Pre-Poo

Because purple toning shampoos can be drying to her curls, Kiana likes to pre-poo with a hydrating oil like this one from The Mane Choice.

Shampoo: Up North Naturals Clean Curls Cleanser

Kiana doesn’t have a set washing schedule, so she waits until her curls feel the need to be cleansed. Once they do, she reaches for something that won’t dry her out any further.

Conditioner: Eden Bodyworks Citrus Fusion Conditioner

This rich conditioner is super moisturizing and just what Kiana needs to make her curls feel bouncy.


Style Routine

Styler: Redavid Orchid Oil Dual Therapy

Kiana has converted almost everyone in the office to using this Redavid Orchid Oil. The unique dual pump means that you cocktail just the right amount of cream and oil for your curl on any particular day.


Once a Week Routine

Treatment: Olaplex No. 3 Hair Perfector

While this is technically a rinse-out treatment, Kiana finds this works best for her when she leaves a little bit in. She uses it a few times a week after getting her hair bleached, and then she uses it wash day once a week.

Deep Conditioner: DevaCurl Melt Into Moisture Matcha Butter Conditioning Mask

This mask is a luxe weekly treat that Kiana leaves on once a week for 10-15 minutes before rinsing.


Refresh Routine

Tool: Curly Hair Solutions H20 Water Bottle

While Kiana’s brushing her hair out and applying her products, she likes her hair to be soaking wet. If it starts to dry during her styling process she rewets it with this fine mist water bottle. She also uses this to refresh her curls for the rest of the week.

Leave In: Mielle Pomegranate & Honey Leave In Conditioner

Kiana loves the way this leave-in smells, and that she can uses it as a light refresher throughout the week because it gives her hold without the crunch.
