Time-Saving Tips to Speed Up Your Curl Routine
We wouldn’t trade our curls for anything, not even 20 extra minutes of sleep in the morning. In a pinch, it’s often easier to throw curls into a bun than to deal with frizz, hours-long drying times, or spirals that fall flat. But there are ways to shave time off your curl routine, all while having the springy, shiny curls of your dreams. Try these easy, time-saving tricks.
TIP: Wake up frizz-free.
Styling your hair before bed can save you precious minutes in the morning. To wake up with defined, frizz-free curls, sleep on a satin pillowcase or wrap your hair in a silk scarf before turning in. Smooth fabrics like silk and satin are less likely than your standard cotton pillowcase to rough up the hair’s cuticle and disturb the curl pattern, so come morning, you can simply shake out your curls and go.
TIP: Speed up drying time.
Air drying your curls might take hours, but blow drying with a diffuser is a much quicker option—and the right styling products can make drying even speedier. Before diffusing, spritz damp curls with our Finishing Mist Setting & Holding Spray, a curl-enhancing hairspray that when used on wet hair, cuts drying time in half.
TIP: Refresh between washes.
Curls need a refresh? Moisturize dry hair and restore the curl pattern with Mongongo Oil Multi-Use Curl Treatment. This fast-absorbing lightweight oil can be used on dry hair to rehydrate curls and restore shine in an instant.
If limp curls are your concern, revive them with Botanical Boost Curl Energizing & Refreshing Spray. The nourishing botanicals in this curl-enhancing spray help spirals spring back into shape, reactivating your second-day style—simply spritz and go.
TIP: Keep curls happy.
Want to get more mileage out of your style? Healthy, well-moisturized curls are easier to style and hold their shape longer than hair that’s dehydrated or damaged.
Replenish strands while you shampoo with Ultra-Nourishing Cleansing Oil, a unique foaming cleanser that mimics hair’s natural oils to remove buildup without stripping. Post-shower, create a moisture foundation by priming curls with Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner, which conditions without the residue of traditional leave-ins. Your healthy hair will reward you by becoming more manageable with less effort. Here’s to spending less time styling, and more time loving your curls.
