We’re Here for it

With leave-in treatment based products for stying curly hair plus tools and methods that support your every day curls. Made for curls that coil, zigzag and wave when you walk. For fine, wiry, wooly, thready and cottony feeling curls that defy gravity.

Know you Curl

Knowing your hair texture is key to picking styles and product that work. The use of wigs, weaves and extensions makes knowing your hair difficult. Our recommendations here are for fine curly hair. We identify curls by a number and letter ‘typing system’.

Hair Type: texture|shape|feel

  1. Type 3abc and 4abc are very curly and extremely curly hair types.
  2. The letter a,b,c and LOIS describe curl shape
  3. The number describe curl feel.

Curl Shape:

L – strand turns at a right angle
O – strand makes a complete circle
I – strand is straight with zigzag pattern from root to ends
S – strand makes a continuation “S” pattern from root to ends
Curl Feel:
  • Cotton/wool
  • Thready
  • Wiry
  • Thickness (per/strand)

Tools

Keep it simple with our recommended beauty tips and tools. They also happen to be salon favourites, modified for curly haircare at home. The sleeping beauty Nylon Cylinder Cap keeps hair laid and stretched while you sleep for tangle-free curls. Instantly boost moisture with a Terry Towel Steam wrap to soften and re-hydrate the hair. We use a ball-tip vent brush on wash day to thoroughly comb, detangle and massage the scalp. The tension method blow dry, with cool to medium heat and medium airflow to dry hair with even moisture. We believe the success of curly hair is predictability.

Methods

Finger detangle dry to remove shed hair; use a vent brush on conditioned hair, wash day. Use the Fine Mist Sprayer with a light oil and your favourite essential fragrance to balance moisture, extend the life of your style and to preserve your leave-in conditioner product. Avoid traction styling, wigs and weaves that reduce access to your own scalp and hair.
