Frizzy, undefined curls? Find out what your hair needs and show off your curls

Hello Curly! If the word curly has made your heart skip a beat that means you know what we're talking about, but let's break it down to explain what curly is and why it's for you. If you have curly or wavy hair you've surely noticed sometime (or every day) that your hair is frizzy, dry, rough, dull... Maybe you have curls or waves more or less defined, but with those little hairs always there ready to give you a "divine aura" of hair, that you don't know if it's frizz or electrified hair. Or, on the contrary, your curls are crying out for definition and elasticity. You've probably used mousses, creams, styling products and so many other products to define, add shine and flexibility to your hair with the best of intentions but, probably without knowing it, their petroleum-based formulas have made your curly hair even more fragile. We know what it's like, so we want to help you understand your hair's needs and give you the tools to help you achieve a healthier looking mane, maximize your curls and keep frizz at bay.

Why is curly hair more fragile?

We get it! Curly hair looks this coarse and dehydrated because of its natural curved shape. This curve makes it difficult for sebum to travel evenly throughout the hair so it has a hard time staying hydrated. Also, did you know that applying these conventional products, formulated with petroleum derivatives, only makes your hair weaker? They do shape it, but they do it externally and momentarily, without taking care of it and repairing it from the inside, which is what it really needs. In the long run, your hair is left dry, dehydrated and without its natural protection.

What do curly and wavy hair need?

So, what your wavy or curly hair needs, whatever type it is, whatever its porosity and density, is natural moisture. Whether your curly hair is type 2, 3 or 4, what it needs is care from the inside, from the hair fiber so that each and every strand is healthy and hydrated.
