Let’s Hear It For The Curls

When it comes to curls, there’s nothing like a solid hair routine. Though sometimes tricky to navigate, curls, kinks, and coils are texture royalty. 

So, what does a good curl routine look like? Let’s dive into what gives a curl its shape and what it needs to stay healthy and fab. 

THE HAIR TYPES 

Curly is a term used to categorize textured hair - but anyone with curly hair knows that differences in types (and routines) can be far and wide. Uncovering your curl type will help you better understand how to manage your hair and what products to use. 

The hair type system, developed by hair stylist Andre Walker, walks us through the nine types of curly hair: A2,3,4, B2,3,4, and C2,3,4. Subcategories A-C determine the curl size, with A being larger and C being the smallest. 

Type 2 hair is defined by soft curls and waves, Type 3 by loopy curls and tight ringlets, and Type 4 by small, naturally dry, kinky curls. 

THE ESSENTIALS ROUTINE

While each curl type may call for different products and best practices to maximize results, there are two main things that all curly girlies should know: scalp care and hydration.

Scalp

The essentials ritual, or wash day routine, is a curly gal and guy’s best friend. A proper wash day routine ensures the scalp is clean from product residue, which can happen with curly hair that gets washed less often. It is vital to incorporate the right shampoo for optimal scalp maintenance. 

Products we recommend:

  • Pequi peeling shampoo - The Pequi line from our Amazon Advanced collection is all about the curls, and this peeling shampoo is all about deep cleansing scalp care for textured hair. Pair with the Pequi shampoo for added cleansing and moisturizing power. 

RG Tip: Mix a Balance Booster into shampoo for a deeper clean. Full of Vitamin B5, B3, and B7, this tiny but mighty booster regenerates, kills bacteria, and fights inflammation. 

Moisture

A hydrated curl is a happy curl. No matter the kink or coil, textured hair thrives when it’s not too dry.

Products we recommend:

  • The Pequi Mask - these are dynamic duos for bringing movement and vitality to your curl. Incorporate these on wash day after shampoo for the ultimate routine. 

RG Tip: Mix the Nourished Curl Booster with Tucumã Butter, Pequi, Argan, and Pracaxi Oil into conditioner to promote shine, softness, and curl elasticity. 

With a proper wash and hydration, feeling confidently curly can be seamless. Sigh. Hot curl summer, where are you?
