Wash N Go: Coily
Coils, coils everywhere...I wish that you would share! Natural volume, bigger than life texture that gives and gives without end! Sign me up! They say you always want what you don't have...many of us are guilty! Whether you have loose waves of tiny elegant corkscrews growing naturally sometimes you don't embrace the beauty of YOUR textured tresses. One thing that helps to celebrate the uniqueness of you & your hair is the routine you set to give you the ideal results. Simplifying this as a task and not a huge undertaking, helps to give you more time for adoration instead of time consuming frustration.
Coily hair, although typically abundant in stands, can be very fragile. Que the TLC. Tiny coils and strands can be naturally porous or have high porosity, allowing moisture to move freely in and out making keeping coils moisturized a challenge. In order to get the defintion and frizz control you desire, adequate moisture is the key!
Moisture, moisture, moisture! Delicate coils just can't get enough, but how do we achieve this? Because adding moisture is so important for this curl type, by the time wash day rolls around, we are in desperate need of a deep clean. Adding creams, leave ins, oils for multiple days to extend those luscious coils will require us to take a few extra measures to start back at square!
For weekly or bi-weekly wash day, our award winning Rizos Curls Hydrating Shampoo & Deep Conditioner is perfect for regular maintenance . Hydrating and moisturizing formulas make these two a perfect pair for clean curls.
You can usually tell when your curls are screaming for a Rizos Reset. Your scalp may start to itch or flakes begin to appear. Curls are falling flat and all volume is being challenged under the weight of mulitiple days of non-washing. Let's Rescue those Rizos! Start with a few drops to your scalp of our Detox Oil, made with 100% essential oils that purify and detox, loosening flakes and scalp level debris and build up. Our Pink Massage Brush makes this an enjoyable step as the gentle silicone fingers work the oil into the scalp to lift dirt and grime, and you get an instant scalp massage as a bonus. If you suffer from flakes and scalp itch, or perhaps you've noticed slow growing strands, add our Detox Scalp Scrub for that next level scalp scour and free those follicles at the root level from sebum and build up that can stunt growth. A single strand will have a struggle pushing new growth from the scalp if there is an ample layer of natural oils , product build up, flakes, environmental debris keeping it from emerging. Work the scalp scrub with the massage brush to ensure ample gentle cleansing to your entire scalp. Our Detox Scalp Scrub formula is unique in that although sulfate-free like all Rizos Curls products, it will suds and can be used down the length of your hair to purify and draw out impurities. Follow with our Apple Cider Vinegar Scalp & Hair Rinse as a final wash step to allow this antibacterial, antioxidant rich rinse pH balance your scalp and restore shine and manageability to your hair. Finish strong on wash day by adding back much needed moisture. Our Vitamin C Hair Repair Mask wil add ample moisture and repair damage all in one swoop. Rich in deeply conditioning and moisturizing ingredients this nourishing butter like mask will resuscitate your rizos breathing new moisture back into every strand.
*Rizos Tip: If moisture is easy come, easy go for your high porosity hair use heat as a tool to capture and trap the moisture in. Steam, heat caps, shower caps to trap body heat will allow the conditioning ingredients to deeply infiltrate. Finish with a cool rinse to close the hair cuticle and lock in moisture.
For a boost of hydration, apply Rizos Curls Curl Defining Mousse by raking root to tip to let the deeply hydrating Coconut Water and mineral-rich Cactus Flower (The same hydration that keeps cactus plump & juicy even in the dry desert!) permeate hair and get that definition and shine on deck. Follow with creamy Rizos Curls Curl Defining Cream to further define, add shine and provide touchable hold.
Plump, juicy coils achieved at this point, however for any overachievers that need an extra layer of hold, now is the time to apply Rizos Curls Light Hold Gel to add more coil control and fight the good fight against frizz and humidity.
