How to Take Care of Your Curly Hair with Keratin Complex


Taking care of naturally curly hair can seem complicated and daunting. Embracing natural texture is often the goal of many people with wavy, curly, kinky or coily hair types. Proper care of these natural textures comes down to the strength and hydration of the individual curls. Over time, curls are weakened by heat, the environment, chemical damage, and many other factors. These will cause curls to become dry and damaged and appear unhealthy. By adding Keratin Complex services and products to your curly hair routine you can strengthen, nourish, and repair damaged curly strands.

Your personal curl type has to do with both the shape and tightness of your individual curls. Different curl types require different types of care. Using the right products and techniques for your curl type can make caring for your hair easier and will give you strong, healthy hair in return. The steps to caring for all curl types with Keratin complex are prep, prime, and protect.

Step 1: Prep Your Curly Hair
All Keratin Complex keratin treatments, professional hair color, and at-home products are powered by Signature Keratin. Keratin Complex Signature Keratin can replenish depleted natural keratin that causes curl to be frizzy, dry and lose its shape. Curls that have become damaged are often lacking in this essential protein. Curly hair is prone to dryness, so moisture is everything for defined and healthy-looking curls. Damaged curls also often struggle to retain moisture. By strengthening and adding much-needed moisture to your curls you can make sure your curls stay hydrated and look their best.

Choosing a Shampoo and Conditioner for Curly Hair
Prep usually starts with proper cleansing and conditioning of your curls. Choosing the correct shampoo and conditioner, or deep conditioners can be a perfect start in the care of your curls. Keratin Complex has shampoo and conditioners for all types and textures of hair. Follow your regular washing schedule with KCTEXTURE Intense Hydrating Masque for an ultra-nourishing, deep conditioning treatment.

Step 2: Prime Your Curly Locks
Curly hair that’s nourished and strengthened looks glossy and healthy. Priming curly hair every day can prepare your curl to tackle whatever the day has in store for it. It’s essential to keep your hair hydrated and use products that will help you keep curls soft and fight frizz. Priming your curl can create a blank slate for healthy styles, and help styling products work more efficiently. Use styling products that help support your curl and seal moisture into the hair for healthy, long-lasting styles. Throughout the day, refresh your curls with Keratin Obsessed, a multi-benefit treatment spray; KCSMOOTH Restorative Leave-in, a curl refreshing spray and heat protector; or hydrating styling products such as Styling Lotion and Volumizing Foam.
