How to Get the Best Curls
To keep your curls healthy, shiny, and bouncy, follow these simple tips:
Sleep with a satin pillow case.
Less friction is better! Cotton will remove or absorb moisture from your hair. Curls need moisture. Or Pineapple. Ask you Cocos Stylist how to dry diffuse to refresh curls.
But don't forget to keep your scalp clean. Ask your cocos stylist how to cleanse while keeping curls hydrated. Remember that your locks need water! Start with water and end with water!
Or every 3 months if you're growing it out. This is the max amount of time to wait. If you wait any longer you risk splits ends that will be too deep to save. Especially if you colour! Color is good. Just respect it and know your limits.
This goes for your hair and your scalp. Winter time always means dryness. To combat this, use Clay the cleanser. And remember to use a winter protective Curl cream like No apologies. Frizz is a curl waiting to happen! Always do a soft rinse with water just before you towel blot.
Do a dry shampoo.
Apply cleanser to dry curls and scalp, massage in, then add water to rinse. This will remove buildup.
Then, follow this:
- Add conditioner, finger or comb it through. Rinse.
- Add your favourite curl cream or curl gel to drenched locks, finger comb through, drizzle with MORE water!
- Squish hand fulls of curls in an upward motion.
- Towel blot. Clip, and air bake or diffuse. Shake.

Did You Know?
Curls are happiest when the scalp is clean and healthy, the right amount of moisture is applied, and when the correct balance of that moisture along with the right amount of protein has been achieved mid-shaft to ends.
There is an ongoing balance of power between moisture and protein – they're both asking for your hair's attention! This is why every curly girl knows her hair and what works! So switch it up!
