To begin, it is important to mention that hair tools can be very harsh on curly coarse hair. If you are feeling like you have damaged curly hair, then one of the major contributors may be the hair tools that you are using. Be sure that you are choosing professional-grade tools to dry and style your hair, as those are typically made with the latest technology for protecting the hair as best they can while using.
In addition, you should be mindful of the temperature that you have the irons set at, especially if you are using professional tools as these tend to get much hotter than non-professional versions. Start with lower heat and you can always work your way up!
We always recommend using a protection product before styling your hair. Our Iles Formula Curl Revive is your hair’s BFF when it comes to protection, so apply it before styling if you tend to use tools often. If you don’t use tools you can still use the serum, as it serves as the perfect styling product for curly coarse hair. This paraben-free formula is the hair’s best protector against UV rays, humidity, color fade, heat tools, and free radicals. It strengthens the hair and helps to repair split ends, with just the right weight, after all, it was developed especially for textured hair. Your damaged curly hair will just love it, we promise.
Are you brushing your curls? Most likely if you have curly hair, then you know better than to brush it. We recommend raking the hair with your fingers or a very wide-tooth comb. We love our Distribution Comb for this. Why do we recommend this comb? The wide teeth combined with our Iles Formula Conditioner allow the hair to just glide through the comb, removing tangles gently and instantly. This will result in less stretching and less stress on the hair.
Chemicals can also be the culprit if you have damaged curly hair. Coloring your hair with products that lighten the hair, like bleach or high lift color, will definitely affect your curls. Lightening products can take a toll on curly hair and should only be applied by licensed salon professionals. This will help to ensure the chemical is applied properly and the integrity of your hair remains intact. Do your research before lightening your hair and find the best stylist in your area within your budget. Don’t be afraid to spend a little more to get it done by someone with more experience,. Trust us, this WILL make a difference. Check out our salon locations page for an expert salon near you.
The Ideal Hair Spa For Coarse Damaged Curly Hair
If you are experiencing damaged curly hair, then chances are too much stress, and not enough love has been placed on the hair. Curly hair loves and needs moisture and hydration. Plus, add damage from tools or chemicals to the mix and now you need repair and protection as well. This is why we love our Iles Formula Haute Performance Hair Mask.
The Iles Formula Haute Performance Mask was developed to strengthen and nourish. Selected raw ingredients make up the most sumptuous cocktail for hair and scalp. Macrobola seed oil, tucuma butter are sourced from the Amazon, animal-friendly silk proteins from Japan, nut oils from Australia. Plus, the mask contains vitamin E, panthenol, and B5. Here is how to use our mask:
- After shampooing, apply liberally the Iles Formula Hair Mask throughout the mid-lengths and ends of the hair.
- Comb through for perfect distribution. The comb will deliver to the scalp the good quantity of product needed.
- Indulge for 5 to 15 minutes.
An Extra Tip For Your Hair Spa
For premium results, after conditioning and rinsing the hair apply our Hair Turban Towel. Our Hair Turban Towel is an extra absorbent, luxuriously soft, microfiber towel that gently dries hair fast without friction, reducing static, frizz, and breakage. It works so well with curls to prevent frizzing AND allows curls formation to not be distorted while drying naturally.
If your hair is much more coarse, you can apply the Mask like a styling mousse. Instead of the Curl Revive, you could use the mask, only use a bit less than you would when you do the spa treatment. Be sure to apply it on very wet hair. Comb it through and allow it to dry naturally or diffuse. You can then use the Curl Revive daily to control the frizz, your hair will eat up the goodness and turn it into silk. Watch the video below on how Wendy uses our Curl Revive to score gorgeous curls! Your hair will thank you for this spa-like experience and will be well on it’s way to good health.
