Kinky Curls

Diagnosis

The best way to diagnose kinky hair is by identifying the curl pattern. Kinky hair is very tightly curled with a visible Z-pattern that sometimes appears to have no defined curled pattern at all. Kinky hair can range from fine to course and is very densely packed.

It is more easily damaged because it tends to be a more fragile fiber of hair texture.  Kinky hair has fewer cuticle layers and less of a natural barrier. Sebum has difficulty flowing from root-to-shoot and encounters interference from this highly textured hair.

Recommendation

Kinky curls should not be shampooed every day as it will strip the moisture level from the hair. Using a cleansing conditioner assists in cleaning as well as maintaining curl softness and manageability. Every kinky curl requires conditioning, deep treatments and moisture-surged leave-in conditioners to maintain the hydration level. To define and style kinky curl, use a heat styling protectant.

Work kinky curls into a “pineapple” topknot or using a satin pillowcase – preserves the shape of style. Clarify kinky hair with a chelating shampoo a few times a month. This helps to remove product residue from the hair and scalp.

Our CURL IMMERSION range is specially formulated to hydrate and define kinky curls.
