1. What’s the best way to revive 2nd and 3rd day curls?
Two days after hair washing day, your curls will definitely need some extra tlc. Your hair starts feeling a bit dry and the curls won’t be as defined. Instead of having to go through several hair washing days a week, you can simply refresh your curls. Make sure you re-wet your hair using a spray bottle, then take a curl enhancing cream or cream gel and scrunch the product onto the curls. Use a diffuser to dry your hair or simply let it air dry.
If you feel like your scalp needs some extra attention, here’s a little trick for you. You can create a root lifting spray by mixing some distilled water, fresh aloe vera and some tea tree oil. Spray this mélange onto your roots and finish off by diffusing your hair upside down.
2. What are some good hair mask options?
My personal favorite, which you can also easily find in stores is the DevaCurl Heaven in Hair. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, the Design Essentials Coconut and Monoi Deep Moisture Masque does the job. Got more time on your hands and feel like pampering yourself? Mix honey, yoghurt and olive oil and add a mushed banana and avocado, there you have it, the DIY hair mask of your dreams.
