Understanding Curly Hair Products

Curly hair is beautiful, but it can be challenging to maintain. Those with curly hair know that it takes a specific set of products to keep it healthy, defined and frizz-free. In this blog post, we'll dive deep into some of the best practices you can adopt to care for your curly hair & how you can choose the right products for your hair!

Shampoo for Curly Hair

Choosing the right shampoo for curly hair is crucial. Curly hair tends to be naturally dry and prone to frizz, so it's essential to use a shampoo that is gentle and hydrating. Choose a shampoo or a cleanser that is sulphate-free and contains moisturising ingredients like honey,  shea butter, olive oil, or argan oil.

At The Earth Collective, we have formulated cleansers that are made from natural ingredients like honey, centella, mandarin and more that are great for curly hair! Our cleansers are backed by incredible scientific research, and contain powerful natural extracts that cleanse your hair gently without stripping it of its natural oils.

Since curly hair is more prone to dryness & damage than straight hair, we recommended using our specially formulated ‘Dry & Damaged Hair’ cleanser to gently cleanse your curls.

When washing your curly hair, it's also important to avoid using hot water, as it can remove the natural oils and leave your hair with a dry and brittle feeling. Instead, use warm water to cleanse your hair gently. 

Apply the shampoo or cleanser to your scalp and massage it in while being careful not to tangle your curls. Rinse thoroughly and follow up with a conditioner.

What type of Conditioners should I choose for Curly Hair?

Using a conditioner that nourishes and detangles your curls is just as important as using the right cleanser or shampoo. Consider conditioners that are rich in natural oils as these oils will penetrate the hair shaft and provide long-lasting hydration, leaving your curls soft and bouncy.

When applying conditioner to your curly hair, it's best to section it off and work the conditioner through each section separately. This method will help to ensure that every strand of your hair gets coated with conditioner and gets the necessary hydration it needs. Once you've applied the conditioner, use a wide-toothed comb to detangle your curls gently. Rinse thoroughly with cool water to help seal the hair cuticles & promote shine.

Here’s what we recommend to hydrate, nourish & strengthen curly hair. Our ‘Dry & Damaged Hair’ Conditioner will produce incredible results when used regularly on curly hair. It’s one of our most popular, highest rated products for a reason!

Styling Products for Curly Hair

Styling curly hair can be a challenge, but using the right products can make all the difference. Look for products that help to enhance curl definition and reduce frizz, like curl creams or gels. These products will help to define your curls and keep them looking their best.

When applying styling products to your curly hair, it's best to start with a small amount and add more as needed. Overusing styling products will just weigh down your curls and make them feel greasy. Apply the product evenly throughout your hair, using your fingers to scrunch your curls gently. Let your hair air dry or use a diffuser attachment on your hair dryer to dry your curls without disturbing them.
