Daily Hair Routine type 3b
HiI need help with daily routines in the morning. I wet, and leave Tresemme Naturals condition on and comb through and air dry. Is there alternative methods or/and products or ways to keep my type 3B curls satisfied. I'm all the way from South Africa, and curls is not big on scene - sleek and straight is big, because of the hot summer we having it's unbearable to heat treat your hair. South Africa is limited on curly hair products.Desperate to hear what you do to your type 3B hair every morning.TIA
If you're leaving it curly, you really need to apply a styling product. Don't know what's available there, but look around this site to get some recommendations and then see if you can find those products there. How do you dry your hair? Air dry? If you can get your hands on a diffuser, you might want to try that. I like drying with a diffuser til my hair is about 75% dry and then air drying the rest.
Seems like you do a wash and go and I would agree that a diffuser works good when doing that. I have 3b/3c curls and use a leave-in conditioner and I mostly do twist or braids the night before so by morning/afternoon my hair is dry and I just take down the braids/twist adjust it how I want and done. It usually lasts about a few days, you can pineapple it or re-twist to keep style.
I have 3B hair and do a wash and go every day. I apply a leave in conditioner (As I Am) and then use Shea Moisture's Curl Enhancing Smoothie on top of that and air dry. I tried using a diffuser, but is just frizzes my hair out. Good luck! -
Thanks all. I will definitely try a diffuser- never given it a try. On this site there are lots of talk about the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie - I will be purchasing it soon. So the method that I am picking up is wet my hair every morning before I leave for work and then use a leave-in conditioner and the Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and use the diffuser. Are there any other methods or products to suit my hair?At this point I have no idea what products to use and I do not want to purchase the wrong products online from the USA. Any ideas ladies :)
I actually have three types of hair, it's straight on the sides and at the nape of the neck and of 3b type curls on the crown and 4b hair underneath. it's very hard to find the right hair routine for me. But what I have learned for my 3 curls, I would need to use a special shampoo and in this case I use Organix argan oil followed by the conditioner and it really just brings out my curls. Then, I rinse it out using cold water and scrunch while I do. I also dry my hair by scrunching it with an old cotton t-shirt, then apply Shea Moisture's Curl and Style Milk, and sometimes the As I Am Curling Jelly. This curling jelly doesn't make my hair crunchy and it looks more natural. Once I'm done with everything sometimes the curl patterns starts breaking up because I've messed with it with my hand, so then I have to go back to the shower and shower some cold water over it until the curls clump together again. Then I redry my hair by scrunching it with the old cotton t-shirt. I know it seems a lot, but that's my hair routine. It doesn't work well for my 4b hair but it works better on my 3b hair.
