1. Curly Hair Wash Day Routine

Should you wash curly hair every day? The answer lies in finding the right cleansing method for your type of curly hair.

Thick and coily hair
: Skip the shampoo and try gentle cleansing with conditioner only – a technique called co-washing. 

Waves and springy curls: Use a sulfate-free clarifying shampoo like Fructis Curl Nourish Shampoo that won’t strip natural oils.

2. Condition and Detangle

During your curly hair shower routine, start by parting and applying conditioner to each section of your hair, then take a wide-tooth comb or detangling brush to carefully undo any knots. You may also use your fingers to detangle.
If you have wavy hair or a looser curl pattern, slather on a rich formula like Fructis Curl Nourish Conditioner. Leave on for a few minutes as it nourishes and hydrates your hair, then rinse well.

If you’re co-washing, combine your conditioner with a hydrating hair oil formula such as the Fructis Curl Multi-Use Oil to create a deep moisturizing hair mask. Apply from root to tip, cover with a warm towel or shower cap, and leave on for at least 20 minutes before rinsing well.

3. Prep Curls Before Styling

Curly hair looks its best when styled before drying. While your hair is wet, section your hair before applying styling products. Try these techniques to lock in the perfect curl:

If your hair experiences shrinkage, use the Fructis Curl Stretch Pudding to moisturize and elongate your curls or coils. Coat each section of your hair with this anti-shrinkage cream to achieve your perfect curl pattern.

For wavy hair or looser curl types, apply the Fructis Curl Sculpt Conditioning Cream Gel to create well-defined frizz-free curls.

Pro-Tip: After applying product, try the plopping method with a T-shirt or a micro-fiber towel to maximize your curl definition, reduce frizz, and prevent breakage.

4. Time to Style!

Whether you choose to air dry or use a diffuser, to achieve maximum volume and definition, apply a quarter-size amount of Fructis Curl Multi-Use Oil. Lather it through the mid-section to ends of your hair and start separating your curls. Begin fluffing them out at the roots with either your fingers or a hair pick comb.


Curly Hair Daily Routine:
To touch up your hair in between washes, use the Fructis Curl Refresher Spray to give your hair that extra moisture and bounce for up to 48 hours.

Curly Hair Night Routine:
Before you go to sleep, prep by adding a dollop of Garnier Fructis Curl Nourish Butter Cream Leave-In to your curls before pineappling your hair.
