Back to Curl Shopping Guide
It happens to the best of us: you use a straightener one too many times, spend a little too much time in the pool (yikes chlorine!) or just have fallen off from your deep treatment schedule. We’re here to let you in on a little secret: curls can almost always be revived and brought back to life. This semester doesn’t have to be a total bust, you can still make an entrance with curls that last as long as your syllabus. And the good news is we can show you how:
Your Back to Curl Shopping guide wouldn’t be complete without including some of our all-time favorite products. What better to use in the morning before class than Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner or Botanical Boost Curl Energizing & Refreshing Spray to get your day started on the right foot? Also, on days when you can’t possibly stand to study any longer, we recommend grabbing the Ultra-Nourishing Cleansing Oil Shampoo because it smells amazing and gives your curls the most moisturizing cleansing they’ve ever had. After all, if you’re going to procrastinate you might as well do it right. Now let’s get into the Ouidad-approved tools that are a must for any curly beauty’s hair restoration journey.
1. A Detangler to Die For
Every curl expert knows that the best styles start way before you even think of putting styling product in your hair. How you detangle plays a big part in how healthy your hair looks and how evenly product is then able to be distributed. Our favorite tool is the WetBrush Pro Detangling Comb that’s perfectly designed to glide through any knot and has an EasyGrip™️ handle made to stay put no matter how much product you use. Combine with the Advanced Climate Control Detangling Spray for a stress-free detangling process.
2. Diffuse the Situation
The Bio Ionic Universal Diffuser is a Game. Changer for your curls. If definition is your ultimate goal then this tool is it. Compatible with most dryers, this diffuser is perfect when you crave heat but not the damage that comes with it. Also, you can control the vents and airflow so you can get the exact amount of volume and definition you’re looking for. Use a hydrating holding gel like our Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel or for a lighter hold use the Tress Effects Styling Gel with style extending Memory Interlock Technology.
Pro Tip: Wait until your hair is 80% dry before diffusing to cut down on any unwanted frizz.
3. The Good Stuff
Goody products have been around for the longest time and their accessories never fail to excite us. When your hair is in a state of transition from “bleh” to “bam!” it’s always fun to spice things up with a cute hair pin or a colorful scrunchie.
No matter the reason your curls need a little TLC, we’ve always got you covered with products that bring oomph back to your tresses and will have you starting your semester on the right foot.
