Spray On A Moisturizing Spray
Curly or frizzy hair needs more hydration. By nature, they are more easily prone to drought.
However, dehydrated hair cannot grow and bounce back. The curls are, therefore, poorly defined and lack flexibility. To keep hair well hydrated, regularly spray with a moisturizing spray. It guarantees defined and light curls without weighing them down.
Choose a spray based on glycerin, aloe vera gel and floral waters. These natural active ingredients are perfect for replenishing the hair’s water reserves. Spray all over the hair, combing your hair with your fingertips to define and redraw the curls. Apply every morning to damp hair.
Make Hair Masks
Masks are part of the essential care to structure your curls. Indeed, they provide maximum nutrition to hair fiber. This is essential for well-formed curls that hold and stay in place.
