Curly Hair type is known for its well-defined curls that form tight, spiral, or ringlet patterns. It has more volume compared to wavy hair and can be prone to dryness and frizz.

Type 3B hair showcases well-defined curls that are springy and have a tighter curl pattern. It tends to be prone to frizz and moisture retention is crucial for maintaining its shape and definition.


What's my routine ? 

Step 1: Cleansing

Use a sulphate-free or moisturising shampoo to gently cleanse the scalp and hair. Focus on massaging the scalp to remove build up, but let the suds cleanse the length of your hair while rinsing.

Step 2: Conditioning

Apply CurlyCo hydrating conditioner from mid-lengths to ends.
Use fingers or a wide-tooth comb to detangle gently while the conditioner is in your hair. For Type 3 hair, allow the conditioner to sit for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly with cool water to seal the cuticle and enhance shine.

Step 3: Deep conditioning

Incorporate a Deep Conditioning Mask treatment once a week to provide extra moisture and nourishment to your curls.

Step 4: Styling

As your hair remains damp, divide it into sections and apply the Curly Hod Gel followed by the Curly Defining Mousse. Begin with the gel, gently combing upwards to boost volume and body. Shake and scrunch your curls for definition. Repeat that for each section. 

Step 5: Drying

Gently scrunch excess water from your hair with CurlyCo's Jersey towel or Cotton T-shirt. Use a diffuser attachment on your blow dryer to enhance curls without causing frizz (medium heat + medium power).

Step 6: Maintenance

Preserve curls overnight with CurlyCo's Silk Turban or a silk pillowcase or do Pineappling (gathering hair loosely at the top of the head).

Step 7: Refresh

Dampen your hair using a water spray and apply a small amount of Mousse. Ensure you only apply the Mousse to wet hair to avoid any sticky residue. Leave it air dry or diffuse.

By following these steps and incorporating the right products into your routine, you can transform your curly curls into beautifully defined ringlets that are full of life and bounce. Consistent care and understanding the unique needs of your curls are key to maintaining their health and vibrancy. With patience and the right techniques, you'll be able to enjoy stunning, perfectly styled curls every day. Embrace the natural beauty of your curly hair and make every day a great hair day.
