Curl Profile

If you have curly hair, more than likely you have done a curl profile on your hair.  This is a great place to start.   If you haven’t, then you are probably asking “What is a curl profile?”  Simply put, it is a chart that breaks down what type of curl pattern you have.  This helps tremendously for determining what type of products you should be using and how to best care for your curls when styling.

The more kinky the curl, the more thirsty they are.  So how do you hydrate them?   The answer is simple, feeding your curls the right products is the best way to re hydrate and fight frizz.

Curl Products

The absolute best curl products are those that provide hydration.  Think about it this way, when you are thirsty, you drink a glass of water.  That is exactly what hydrating products do for hair.  It’s like giving your curls a giant glass of water.

Curly Hair and Kinky Hair

We have recently launched our Iles Formula Hair Mask   especially formulated for ethnic, curly and frizzy hair. A  luscious white butter mask that provides hydration, strengthening and protection, leaving your hair feeling like spun silk. Selected raw ingredients make up the most sumptuous cocktail for hair and scalp without ever weighing the hair down. Our Haute Performance Hair Mask is best used between our  Iles Formula Shampoo and Iles Formula Conditioner.  In cases of very thirsty hair use our mask as often as once a week.  Our Iles Formula Finishing Serum can be used daily on spritzed dampened curls to  awake the curl formation and prevent further daily dehydration  from UV  rays.

Wavy Hair

If your hair is less curly but wavy  try these three easy steps, you will instantly repair and hydrate, and frizz will be a thing of the past.  Step 1, is our Haute Performance Shampoo    Step 2, is our Haute Performance Conditioner.  Step 3, is our Finishing Serum.  Use liberally the serum on wet  hair before defusing or allowing the curls or waves  to dry naturally. Each morning on waking, spray your curls with a spritz of water and reapply the serum. Don’t disturb curls until dry.  Finally, use our Hair Mask as your once a month hair spa moment to strengthen, protect and add an extra  boost of hydration.

Maintenance

Finally, we recommend keeping your hair cut regularly.  By regularly, we mean every 6 to 8 weeks at most.  Is your hairstylist knowledgeable at cutting curly hair?  This is important because curly hair should be cut differently than straight hair for optimal results.  A haircut tailored to your type of curl, will save you time and frustration when it comes to styling your hair every day.  If you find that it’s time to part ways with your stylist, but haven’t because you have no idea who will care for your curls next, we can help.  There are many websites out there that cater to the curly hair community.  These sites are great because you can find hair stylists that have come recommended by the curly hair community in your area.  You can actually read specific reviews and find a new stylist from there to care for your curls.  One site we love is naturallycurly.com, where you can find loads of information about curls.
