I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes the day-to-day natural hair maintenance can make a real procrastinator out of me. Now don’t get me wrong—natural hair care is definitely a labor of love, but have you ever had one of those days where you know you have absolutely no choice but to do something with your hair? I mean you’ve delayed it for as long as you could. You’ve pushed it allllllllll the way to the limit. Next thing you know, you’re standing in front of the mirror, running your hands through those tangled and distressed curls, when it finally hits you. Your hair needs you now. And by now I mean, RIGHT now (cue Donnie McClurkin).
Now that the anxiety has consumed you, relax. Curls| Waves & Naturals (CWN) is here.
So where should you start? Well, first off, your hair and scalp are probably longing to be cleansed. Set your hair day in motion with Clean-N-Curly Hydrating Shampoo. This will cleanse the hair, but also pump that needed moisture back into your natural waves and curls.
Once the hair and scalp are nice and clean, your curls and waves will probably need to be detangled. As I always say, good things happen in sections, so part your hair in sections, applying a liberal amount of the Great Detangler to each section. Now this next step is crucial. Don’t go grabbing your comb just yet. You don’t want to chance ripping out that beautiful mane by being too hasty. Start by gently using your fingers to loosen up the tangles. Once the tangles have freed up, use a wide tooth comb to fully detangle each section. With this product, you’ll get the added definition to your curls and waves and plenty of moisture to sustain you.
Now let’s say you really blew it this time around, and your hair is in need of some extra special attention. Don’t even trip. At the end of the tunnel, there is always Repair and Restore: Hair Strengthening Treatment Masque. As mentioned before, definitely part your hair into sections, massaging this miracle worker into your hair, concentrating on your areas of concern. This will restore your hair, making it soft and much easier to manage.
From here on out, the world is essentially yours (at least in the realm of natural waves and curls). Now that you’ve gotten through the hard part, feel free to style as desired. With CWN, the styling possibilities
have no bounds. If you’re looking to further define your curls without having to deal with flaking or hard hair after styling, Curly Curl “Gello” is just what you need to solidify the style. But no matter what you do, in any stage of your hair regimen, CWN has got you—every step of the way.
