I would like to introduce my lovely friend and guest; Laura Reynolds. Laura has been a customer of Pure for 3 years now. A couple weeks ago she had been in for a reconstructing treatment and a haircut with yours truly, Pure owner and master stylist, Sarah Ridings. As I began to prep her for her treatment, I had asked how her at-home routine was going...
"Sarah, I finally feel like I have my at-home products down for my curly hair!"
This was great news.
I asked if she would be willing to take me through her regime and if I had permission to pass it along to our followers and guests. Most people with curly hair struggle with finding that right cocktail of products.
Below, Laura explains what works best for her. How is your at-home product routine treating you?
Ok, like a lot of people with curly hair I deal with moisture and product buildup issues.
It's taken a long time, about 33 years but with Sarah's help and the products at Pure I've finally figured out a routine that works for me. I try not to wash my hair often but because I workout I usually end up washing it twice a week using O Way Curly Hair Bath. Then I follow up with O Way Curly Hair Mask. The mask I use as a conditioner and try to leave it in for the majority of my shower. If I'm not doing much the next day I'll leave it in overnight. I always end my shower with a cold rinse which helps with frizz...but its not for everyone brrr!
I use Yarok Feed Your Ends as a leave-in conditioner and found the combination of Yarok Feed Your Curls defining creme and a small amount of Yarok Feed Your Do hair whip gives definition and frizz control without any crunch or product buildup.
My preference is to let my hair air dry whenever possible to avoid the drying out effects of diffusing.
Once a week I've been leaving in Castor Oil with Doterra Essential Oils lavender and melaleuca (tea tree) for a day or two. Just massage on your scalp and throughout your hair then either twist it up in a bun or put it in a braid.
Surprisingly, I get compliments on my hair those days dispite it being smothered in oil. It may sound like a lot but I'm a no frills or fuss kind of gal so this takes minimal time and effort.
