If taking care of your natural, textured curls sounds interesting (or even like a mystery!) to you, then you will want to read about my secret weapon for amazing hair! I am going to discuss the styling products that will help you rock the perfect naturally textured curly hair.
What is the best hair care routine for curly hair? This is a very popular question, and you will see that it does not involve a thousand steps or a thousand hair care products. Just follow the hair care tips below for information to help you care for your hair on your hair journey
Ideal Glow Hair Care products make it easier than ever to care for all hair types. Dermatologist-designed to deliver salon quality results no matter how experienced you are.
Curly hair is innately drier than straight hair so it is important to choose hair care products with moisturizers for your curly texture.
When your naturally textured curls are hydrated and moisturized properly with the right moisturizing hair care products, your curly textures will thrive much better and they will not get tangled, frizzy or dry. Excess moisture in the air from high humidity can cause the hair cuticles to swell if they are not well moisturized. When the hair cuticles swell, the hair appears frizzy. Hair that is well hydrated is less likely to absorb moisture from the atmosphere and become frizzy.
The use of sulfates in hair products has been a hotly debated subject for years. They are used for making shampoos lather but they can be harsh on your locks because they strip away moisture.
Sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners such as the dermatologist-designed Ideal Glow Ultimate Moisture Shampoo and Ideal Glow Ultimate Moisture Conditioner are best for natural hair because they cleanse the hair thoroughly without stripping the much needed natural oils and nutrients. They are also excellent for prolonging vibrant color in color-treated hair and to prevent frizz.
Shampoo hair and scalp, rinse thoroughly and repeat. Next apply a quarter size amount of conditioner just above the roots then work through with a wide-tooth comb until it is fully incorporated into damp locks. Leave the conditioner in for 3 minutes before rinsing completely out.
Gently dry your hair with a microfiber towel or cotton T-shirt that will absorb the water twice as fast while reducing breakage and protecting the strength of the hair.
Leave-in conditioners are a great way to provide extra protection and moisture to your textured curls. A good leave-in conditioner will help to protect against all sorts of harm, including heat styling tools like blow dryers as well as environmental elements such UV rays!
Ideal Glow Daily Silk Leave-In Conditioner moisturizes, detangles, adds shine, and helps protect from heat without build up.
To prime your hair before styling, apply the Daily Silk Leave-In Conditioner a little above the roots to the ends. A quarter size or more, depending on the length of your hair, and comb through using a wide-tooth comb; this will help detangle, repair and protect your hair before styling.
Hair styling is the fun part! Whether you want a flexible hold or well-defined curls, there are many styling products from our suite of dermatologist-designed styling products to suit your fancy.
For a flexible hold with memory and support without the stiffness that will define the curl pattern, use the Ultimate Styling Cream. Great for those with "frizzy" curls
If you're looking for a soft, touchable, defined curl pattern with improved elasticity and springy bounce, check out the Ultimate Curly & Straight Hair Treatment.
To twist, mold, and shape your luxurious locks, use the Flex Styling Paste.
You can blend in the Shine & Glow Oil for more weightless shine and healthy bounce
Naturally textured curly hair care routines can be as simple or complex as you want them to be. I suggest that you keep the hair care routines simple using this general guide for how to achieve that perfect natural look: cleanse weekly then condition after, detangle while conditioner is still in your hair, apply leave-in conditioner and leave-in styling products. Simple hair care routine + The Best Hair Care products = Your Best Hair Day, Every Day.

2. The hair experts at Ideal Glow remind you to constantly work your curls up and not down, even when drying, and not to brush your curls
3. The Ideal Glow hair styling products can be mixed and matched to create the perfect curl e.g. you can cleanse with the Ultimate Volume Shampoo and condition with the Ultimate Moisture Conditioner.
