YOUR TEXTURE TYPE
THE TIGHT COIL
THE TIGHT COIL
A head full of rambunctious z-shaped strands and super sized volume characterises this hair type. The structure of your hair can sometimes feel stiff and dense - especially if not properly hydrated. And if you pull out a strand, you’ll see that it is much longer than it looks. That’s because the densely packed Z shape causes the hair to shrink, making your hair appear much shorter than it really is. We recommend stretching your hair into twists, braids or knots while they’re drying to retain length as well as moisture. With tight coils it’s never just on the surface - they need deep hydration to soak into each strand.
Your hair cuticles are tightly packed together, so they struggle to absorb water and your hair takes a long time to dry. Products tend to sit on top of your hair, causing buildup. Use heat when applying your deep conditioner to open up your cuticles for better absorption. You should prioritise emollients over proteins and stick to lightweight, liquid-based products.
Also known as thin hair, low density means your strands are not so tightly packed together and your scalp is visible. Use smaller quantities of products to avoid weighing your hair down.
Not too fine and not too coarse, these strands are generally strong and elastic. They are more resistant to damage than fine hair, and you can use a range of product textures.
YOUR PERSONAL HOLY CURLS ROUTINE
STEP 1 - WASH
Water is your best friend. so make sure that your hair is thoroughly wet before applying the shampoo.
1. Apply shampoo to the roots and massage your scalp properly.
2. Rinse hair and repeat steps 1 and 2 if needed.
STEP 2 - DEEP CONDITION
The 05 Curl Mask contains a bond-building technology called FiberHance™. This ingredient helps to fill in gaps in the hair shaft, providing deep repair. It also adds a serious dose of hydration to thirsty curls.
1. Apply from roots to ends.
2. Finger detangle if you can or use a wide tooth comb or brush. As you detangle, drizzle water over your curls and keep stroking the surface of your hair to smooth the cuticle.
3. Pop on a shower cap if you can to generate heat for a deeper conditioning treatment. Leave on for 15 minutes while you do your thing.
(We recommend investing in a hooded dryer or steamer as this will really help open your cuticles for deeper penetration)
4. If your hair is extra dry, leave some of the mask in the hair to act as a leave in. Water the mask down by drizzling water over the curls. Keep drizzling water until about 10% of the product is left in your hair.
STEP 3 - OIL SERUM
Packed with Jojoba Oil, Hemisqualane, Rosemary Seed Oil, Baobab Oil, Marula Oil, and a blend of Essential Oils, the Oil Serum not only primes your hair for ultimate moisture retention, but also nourishes it with vitamins and nutrients.
1. Apply while your hair is dripping wet from roots to end.
STEP 4 - THE FRO CREAM
The Fro Cream contain Wavemax® and Xylishine™ two high performing and innovative actives that provide ultimate, long-lasting moisture and shine for Afro textured hair.
1. Gently blot excess water with an old cotton T-shirt. Your hair should be dripping wet but not soaking.
2. Section Your Hair: Divide your hair into manageable sections and apply The Fro Cream from roots to tips, ensuring complete coverage. Raking through your curls with your fingers will help to detangle and smooth the cuticle.
For Twists Outs/Braids Outs:
Split the section into smaller subsections and twist/braid each subsection. Repeat for all of your hair.
Let your twisted hair dry overnight (or have them in for longer to keep your hair protected.)
Once your twists/braids are completely dry, carefully unravel them to reveal perfectly defined coily curls.
Maintain and Refresh:
If you notice some sections have lost definition or are getting dry, spray with water to reactivate The Fro Cream and re-twist/braid those specific areas to refresh the style. Protect your hair with a satin or silk scarf or bonnet each night to preserve your hair.
For Wash and Go:
After applying The Fro Cream to each section, gently scrunch your hair with your hands. This helps encourage your natural curl pattern.
Allow your hair to air dry or use a diffuser on low heat. Once your hair is completely dry, gently tip your head forward and fluff your roots to add volume and separate your curls for a more natural look.
Maintain and Refresh:
Use a satin or silk scarf or bonnet to protect your hair while you sleep. This helps prevent moisture loss and maintains your curl definition. If your hair starts to feel dry, spray with water and re-apply a small amount of The Fro Cream to redefine your curls. Work it through your hair by raking, scrunching and encouraging your natural curl pattern.
