In my last article, I gave you a review on some of my favorite NaturallyCurly Best of Best 2020 products. In this article, I’m going to share how I incorporate these products into my regimen.
Because hair is fickle, always be willing to recognize any changes in your hair and to adapt to its unique needs. Often, that comes with switching up your product cocktails to achieve the best results.
Remember, every head of hair is unique, and based on your hair’s condition, you might need more than one shampoo in your routine.
What I love about this clarifying shampoo is that it offers one of the most powerful repair complexes among all of the vegetable proteins. It has a unique combination of multifunctional protein, which provides exceptional damage recovery, conditioning, and nourishment for improved overall hair care performance.
This shampoo lathers very well, so a little goes a long way. It’s gentle enough to be used weekly. If you use a lot of oils or styling products, you need to consider using a clarifying shampoo every once in a while to remove product build-up.
This heavenly curl cream will envelop your curls and give it long-lasting moisture. It is very concentrated, so you only need to use a small amount. I know some curlies and hair stylists that do not agree with using oils and shea butter in hair products, but it all comes down to the formulation because all products are not created equal. Unfortunately, shea butter has gotten such a bad reputation within the curly hair community, but what’s worse is partial information or half-truths. If you know Shea butter doesn’t work well for your hair, that’s okay- you know your hair best, but spreading misinformation that oils and shea butter are terrible for hair, in general, is misinformation.
Shea Butter provides moisture by providing fatty acids, like stearic acid, oleic acid, and vitamins that nourish and restore dry hair. Yes, it’s true that Shea butter is not a hydrating ingredient because it doesn’t contain water. Still, it is a natural sealant that helps hair HOLD in moisture when blended with other botanicals and hydrating ingredients.
I like to pair this curl cream with the Kinky Curly Knot Today. This has become my new favorite combo. This curly cocktail will give your hair definition galore! If you want to add extra hold, then I highly recommend adding a gel.
What’s not to love about Righteous Roots Oils? This product won the ‘best oil’ two years in a row! Now that says a lot. My favorite way to use this oil is as a pre-poo treatment. My hair has been dyed many times, so this serves to protect it from multiple wash days during the week.
When I want to add a bit of texture, boost the volume at the root area, or define and shape my curls, I reach for the Innersense Create Lift Volumizing Foam. After applying a leave-in conditioner, curl cream, I add a small amount of the foam from root to tip, using my fingers to gently separate and shape, adding more product as needed.
