Curly Hair Care Tips for Medium to Highly Textured Hair

Shampoo: It’s recommended to wash the hair every 7-10 days, washing it more than that can dry out the hair. Co-wash (which means washing the hair only with conditioner) on those messy days. When using shampoo, make sure to use the balls of your fingers instead of your nails. Scratching the scalp can irritate the scalp. Co-washing is also great with Blended Beauty’s Cleansing Conditioner. And Blended Beauty’s Shampoo is so gentle, it can be used a couple times a week.

 Conditioner:Always condition after you shampoo! There are 3 types of conditioners. Rinse out, Leave In, and Deep conditioner. The deep conditioner helps to repair/heal damaged hair. The rinse out conditioners are thicker. The Leave In conditioner is thinner, and contains ingredients to help moisturize hair.

 Detangling: It’s best to detangle the hair in sections, using a wide tooth comb. Make sure to hold the hair firmly at the root, and begin combing at the ends of the hair, working your way up.

Moisturizer: After all of the hair has been combed through, apply a moisturizer to the hair. If your hair becomes dry within hours, try adding oil on top of the moisturizer to help seal/lock in the moisture.

    I need help with moisture. I have been natural for over a year now do two stand twist which I love. I’ve tried different products, use argan, olive, and castor oil in my water bottle. I’ve tried a few different products for moisture, yet nothing seems to keep my hair moisturized during the day. I am 57 years young and need to color gray which is done about every 2 weeks. I’m thinking the color is really drying out my hair. Looking for any suggestions on what to use. Thanks.

      Do you use henna for coloring your hair? Henna is not as drying as regular hair dye. It’s important to find a good moisturizer and use it daily. Depending on your curl type “Blended Beauty Curl Styling Lotion” will help with adding daily moisture. Then add your natural oil (argan etc) on top of the moisturizer to seal it in. Also make sure you are using a “moisturizing shampoo” and once a month try to “pre-poo” your hair. Pre-poo is simply adding a oil (I prefer Blended Beauty Natural Hair Oil) to your hair and let it sit for 20 mins (with a cap) before shampooing. This will help to keep some of the good oils in your hair, which can get washed out during the shampooing process. I hope this information helps Sandy, and please keep me updated on your hair.

      Sandy I understand your delima. I’ve got you by a few yrs, have been natural for 3yrs now, I tried many products until I found BB products for which I have wonderful results for my B4B5 hair. My routine is: After shampooing with the Soy Shampoo, I apply a small amount of the Curl Quenching Conditioner to my hair, from root to ends. Than do a two stran twist with the Curl Styling Butter or Happy Nappy, I put a small amount of the Curl Frizz Pudding at the ends of my twists. When finished doing my entire head I spray my hair with a mixture of BB Natural Hair Oil, Aloe Gel, Vegetable glecrin and water, I spray my hair mornings/evenings apply a satin cap before going to bed. I wash my hair twice a month and poo wash in between. People are always commenting on how healthy/shiny my hair looks. For my grey, I simply use Henna Amla power to control premature greying of the hair, it does not dry like the dyes. Much Luv Sista and good luck, look forward to hearing from you soon.
