The Perfect Wash n' Go..starts with the Perfect Wash Day!
For the BEST curls of your life, you will need to start with a clean slate! It is baffling how much the health of your hair and condition of your strands weighs heavily on the products you use and the ingredients in the formula. It really makes a huge difference!
Your scalp is the life source of your hair. If your scalp is unhealthy, your hair will suffer. Think of what we learn when we are young, " If you want to solve an issue, you must get to the ROOT of the problem". This is so true on so many levels. The "root" is where your strand is born, basically, and its from the moment it emerges from the pores in you scalp that its determined if it will thrive or barely survive.
A wash n' go is the perfect style to give your hair and scalp a little extra TLC and bless your day with a little extra time to do other things you love. This low prep style is simply what it states...wash your hair, add styling products and Go! This can be accomplished with or without diffusing as this step is totally based on preference. Diffusing gives maximum potential volume while air drying is the option to follow if you are focused solely on definition and no additional volume is desired.
Let's start at the beginning...Wash Day! Your regular wash day should be simple yet effective at providing your hair and scalp with a squeaky clean start. Some are prone to oily scalp and hair, work out and sweat, are heavy handed with product, or are hindered by scalp itch and irritation and all these signs point to a much needed wash day.
Rizos Curls has just what you need...but you don't have to take our word for it!
Allure Best of the Beauty Award 2023 Winner:
Rizos Curls Hydrating Shampoo & Deep Conditioner
Cue the applause for this honor!
Our Award Winning, dynamic duo is the perfect accompaniment for the perfect wash day. Rizos Curls Hydrating Shampoo is a deeply cleansing shampoo without being over drying with ingredients like rich Shea Butter and Moringa Oil which strengthen and protect hair & scalp. Rich in vitamins & nutrients, this ingredient combo helps defend against split ends and strengthens hair follicles. Hands down best scalp cleanse is achieved with our Scalp Massage Brush, as its silicone fingers lift flakes and grime allowing the Hydrating Shampoo to further breakdown debris that blocks new growth. Pair with our Rizos Curls Deep Conditioner which is creamy, thick and luscious with incredible slip making conditioning and detangling a cinch. Our Flexi Brush will glide through with ease tackling any snags or tangles while you are deep conditioning. This formula includes Olive, Sunflower, Coconut and Argan Oil. All this moisturizing goodness combined smooths hair, improves elasticity to prevent breakage & split ends, reduces frizz and increases shine.
How can you not have the most amazing curls with this unbeatable fresh start?
Jump into your styling routine right away making sure to apply products to wet, not damp hair. This allows the hair to absorb the moisture from the product and dry with the defining benefits of your styler reducing potential frizz. Quench the thirst of dry strands by prepping wet hair with Rizos Curls Refresh & Detangle Spray. This leave in will keep curls tangle free while providing moisture and hydration to areas that are prone to frizz like ends and face framing baby hairs.
Chose stylers based on your needs and make sure to apply with great technique. Rizos Curls Curl Defining Cream is ultra creamy and moisturizing, coaxing strands into superbly defined, bouncy spirals and ringlets while adding shine and eliminating frizz. Loaded with high performing, natural ingredients like Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Aloe Vera this curl cream provides deep hydration & brilliant shine. Perfect for curls and coils, and should be applied about an inch or so from the scalp to allow superlative volume. We do our best to avoid products near our roots as it doesn't take much to weigh them down making volume more of a challenge. Section hair and rake in Curl Defining Cream to cover the length of the curls, ensuring coverage to all strands. Waves and curls that love definition and hydration but are weighed down easy, will lean towards our Rizos Curls Curl Defining Mousse. Light, airy, weightless styling foam with vitamin infused Cactus Flower Extract, antioxidants like Maracuja Oil & Red Algae providing protection from free radicals and sun damage with the phenomenal hydration only Coconut Water can provide. Apply and scrunch, scrunch, scrunch to encourage curl formation.
Layer using prayers hands, a moderate amount of Rizos Curls Light Hold Gel to provide the extra dose of crunch free, flake free hold. Not only does the Light Hold Gel provide curl control that rivals the chokehold of humidity on curls, it also boasts a formula with Thyme, Rosemary & Flaxseed to promote strong growth, and a healthy scalp.
Diffuse or not diffuse that is the question. Air dry your curls for a traditional Wash n ' Go with no additional efforts, however if you need those curls dry and ready to face the world and volume is your jam, use the Collapsible Diffuser to gently dry curls and lock in your style. Always remember, gravity is your friend so you will want to diffuse upside down, focusing on drying those roots off the scalp for ultimate volume. Use warm heat on medium speed to protect against heat damage and excess frizz which can happen when the high speed setting pushes and swirls around delicate curls during diffusing. Voila!
Perfect Curls every time with the Perfect start to your Wash Day!
