Shampoo/Conditioner

I stopped shampooing everyday about a year ago and my hair has never been healthier. I shampoo twice a week with Devacurl NO-POO ® Zero Lather Conditioning Cleanser. This product does not lather and so it helps minimize frizz. It is a little pricey, but since I only use a little bit twice a week, it lasts a long long time.

I condition everyday with OGX® Quenching Coconut Curls Conditioner. I let it sit for 3’ish minutes and then I comb out with a wide grip comb.  Sometimes I put a little Suave Tropical Coconut Conditioner in my hair right before I get out as a leave-in-conditioner. This conditioner is so cheap and works great!

T-shirt Wrap

When I get out of the shower I use a cotton t-shirt to wrap my hair in. This helps with frizz. I let it sit for 10-20 minutes – about the time it takes me to do my makeup.  My husband still calls it my t-shirt turban.

Brushing

I used to never brush my hair but recently I discovered the Wet Brush. It is a game changer. This brush can get through my tangles with no problem. I love brushing my hair now.  My curls don’t need to be brushed everyday but a few times a week I brush through my curls when they are wet. Then I scrunch back into shape.  I use the wide tooth comb in the shower after conditioner as well as to create a part in my hair.

Product

After I take my wet hair out of my t-shirt turban, I brush and scrunch or just run my fingers through my hair and scrunch. Then I use my magic water! I call it magic water because this product is very liquidy. Curl Keeper Original is my jam! The most cost efficient place to buy Curl Keeper is Amazon. I started out with a travel size test bottle and I loved it so much that I now buy the huge 33oz. The 33oz bottle lasts me about a month and half. This is a pricey product but well worth it. I recommend purchasing a pump to go with the big bottle so you don’t waste any.   The best thing about Curl Keeper is that it reactivates with water. If I want second day hair or to look fresh in the evening,  all I have to do is spritz my hair with water and scrunch. My curls are reactivated and look wonderful.I can not say enough about Curl Keeper!

Recently I started using Eva NYC Get Glassed, Hair Serum. I got a little sample in my Ipsy bag a few months back and I loved it. After my hair is dry I add a little to my roots and ends and it helps with shine and frizz control.

Drying

51741gyL18L

I used to only let my hair air dry until I purchased the Bed Head Curlipops Tourmaline Ionic Diffuser Dryer. Now I blow dry my hair with it everyday! This diffuser works great and will not cause frizz.  It adds about 10-15 minutes to my styling time but it is well worth it. I hate having wet hair and my hair takes hours to dry naturally.
