If you have curly hair, you surely know the morning annoyance of having curls as elegant as the day before… In this article, we present some products to make your job easier and have bouncy curls in less than 5 minutes!
No. 1: aloe vera gel
We no longer present Aloe Vera gel, essential for the daily maintenance of your curly hair. Composed of 98% water, it is an excellent moisturizing agent for the hair fiber but it is also the ideal ally for curly heads in the morning of a hair crisis… To use it is very simple. You just need to take a sufficient amount of Aloe Vera gel according to the length of your curly hair and distribute from the roots to the ends. Aloe vera gel has the advantage of drying quickly and does not make hair greasy.
The only drawback that we can find is that it does not keep well over time. So you prefer to keep it in the fridge and do not take long to use it.
Which to choose? Waam Aloe Vera Gel without hesitation, light and effective texture (€9.90 per 100ml).
No. 2: styling mousse
Styling mousse is a great product to restore volume and definition to your curls in the morning when you’re in a hurry. A few psichitt and voila! However, pay close attention to the composition of the styling mousse you choose. In general, avoid formulas that contain alcohol. In the long run, these can dry out the fiber of your curly hair. The ideal styling mousse should also have a light texture to coat without weighing down the curls.
Which to choose? The Eco Cosmetics styling mousse that offers excellent value for money (€7.90 for 150 ml) to create well-defined curls without weighing them down.
No. 3: the floral water vaporizer
Floral water spray will not be enough to redefine your curls if your hair is quite dry. On the other hand, if your curly hair tends to get greasy too quickly, bringing floral water will do the trick for refreshing your curls in the morning, especially lavender floral water known for beautifying lengths and soothing sensitive scalps.
Which to choose ? Lavender floral water from the Centifolia brand is a safe bet (€11 for 200ml).
N°4: flax gel to make yourself
Flaxseed gel is a cheaper alternative to aloe vera gel since you just have to make it yourself. Like Aloe Vera gel, it hydrates and redefines curls without weighing them down. The flaxseed gel is applied in the same way, applying a hazelnut all over the hair from the roots to the ends. And since it’s just like its cousin, flaxseed gel doesn’t keep as well over time as aloe vera gel. Again, store it in the refrigerator and don’t take too long to use it. If you want to start, right here we put an easy recipe for flaxseed gel.
No. 5: styling care cream
Styling care cream will be more suitable for curly hair that tends to be thirsty. It nourishes and hydrates the fiber in depth to find beautiful well-defined curls. It is applied sparingly to the lengths and ends, «crumpling» the strands. Avoid the roots so as not to weigh down the hair.
Which to choose ? Without hesitation, the SO’ BIO ETIC care cream enriched with Aloe Vera juice, coconut oil and hyaluronic acid (€6.20 per 100ml). Everything you need to revive your curly hair!
Our tips for keeping your beautiful curls overnight…
Now that you have plenty of options to freshen up your curly hair in the morning, let’s take a look at some tips that will allow you to protect your cut overnight and avoid rude awakenings.
Opt for a silk or satin pillowcase.
Cotton pillowcases are the most classic… except that it is an absorbent material that “grabs”, on which the hair dries out and then forms the famous frizz, you know those unsightly curls in the morning. On the contrary, silk or satin are materials that slide and thus help preserve the hydration of your curly hair. An essential accessory to save time in the bathroom!
Untangle your curls before going to bed
Another little tip, gently untangle your curls with your fingers or a wide tooth comb before bed. Don’t hesitate to apply a moisturizing spray or care cream during detangling if your hair needs it. This will prevent you from ending up with a bag of knots and a ton of frizz the next morning.
The pineapple bun for long hair
If your curly hair is quite long, the last piece of advice we can give you (and not least) is to sleep with your hair tied up in a pineapple bun. To do this, pull all your hair back to the top of your head and tie it all (without tightening it too tight) in a fluffy bun, preferably satin… The Pineapple bun is unstoppable to prevent the curls from rubbing the pillow and therefore thus the formation of frizz.
So the curly men why did you choose to refresh your curls in the morning?
