Now that you have sprung forward and are looking forward to nicer weather and nature coming alive, it is time to think about putting more life into your curls. Winter takes a lot out of people, even their curls, so FHI Heat is ready to spring into action and offer you the best tips in the business to keep your curls lively and luxurious.
Now that the cold dry air of winter is on its way out, it will be much easier for you to maintain your hair’s moisture without a lot of fuss. Although you may use heavier oils like shea butter or castor oil in the winter, you can now move to a more lightweight oil like sunflower or avocado oil. These will still seal in moisture to your hair, without weighing it down.
Just as you spring clean your house, it makes sense to “spring clean” your hair as well. In this case, we mean that spring is a great time to trim your curls. The ends of hair, especially curls, get frayed and stressed and can make your hair look bad. Trim your tresses and then pamper the ends with some oil to maintain the healthiest look possible.
Before you wash, use a rinse-out conditioner or your favorite oil so that your hair is relaxed and detangled. This will help reduce breakage. Then, when you go to shampoo, focus on your scalp as you massage the shampoo into your hair. Use your favorite conditioner as well, and this is a great time for an optional protein treatment.
At least one time a week, do a deep conditioning of your hair so that it maintains its healthy look and you can maintain control. With silk proteins and hydrolyzed silk, our Satin Finish Conditioning Treatment will penetrate deeply into your hair’s core. This will not only repair and strengthen your curls, but will counteract your hair’s tendency to frizz. Unlike traditional serums that weigh hair down, this will penetrate deeply into your hair’s core while still being light and not greasy.
Think about your lifestyle when deciding how you want to wear your hair. If you don’t want to fuss with it every morning, use a simpler style like braids or buns. Twist-outs and braid-outs are another great technique if you want to rock a different look. Don’t be afraid to use a little bling to supplement your look. Headbands, clips, and flowers can all add life to your spring curls.
Make the most of your curls by blow-drying them well, so they retain their shape and keep springing into action. Our Prep and Primer will set the stage for the perfect blowout, as it equalizes your hair’s ability to retain moisture and protect against stretching and breaking. The non-greasy formula prepares your hair to look its best. Pair our Prep and Primer with the Blow Out Handle-less Hair Dryer to create a dynamite blowout that highlights your curls. Our ceramic heat produces an abundance of negative ions that will lock in moisture and keep your curls where you want them. With our handle-less precision and curl-defining diffuser, as well as our powerful twin DC motors, you will be able to spend less time on this job, and avoid excess heat damage for your hair.
Because there is more moisture in the environment in the spring, the chances of your hair straightening routine lasting through the week are not very good. Textured hairstyles and more natural looks make more sense as the weather heats up, and avoiding excess heat is much better for your hair.
When it is time to curl your curls, and make the most of your natural body, make sure to use the right curling iron. We recommend our Ti Luster Titanium Curler for thicker or hard to curl hair. Our titanium barrel with magnesium heats up faster and has 20% more surface area to create the curls you want. Control your frizz and help your hair hydrate with this curling iron! For those with medium to fine hair, the Tourmaline Ceramic Curler features three layers of baked ceramic plates infused with tourmaline which creates negative ions to seal in vital moisture and reduce frizz.
After all the work you put into your hair, it is important to finish strong. Use our Stay Put Hair Spray to capture your curls without worrying about stiffness or crunchiness. This hair spray works well in tandem with all of our other products and will keep your curls in place while leaving your hair soft and manageable.
