From dryness and split ends to frizz and puffiness—caring for curly hair can feel…overwhelming. To help our curly-haired crew, we’ve compiled several tips, tricks, and products to help you tame your majestic mane.
1. Lean on a clean, moisturizing shampoo
To start your shower, you’ll want to opt for sulfate, silicone, and paraben-free shampoos that are gentle on any hair texture and scalp. Mounia’s Shampoo & Rinse features clean ingredients like rhassoul clay and aloe vera that gently remove build-up, enhance hydration, and prevent dryness and tangles.
Pro tip: Wash your hair sparingly. Washing your curly locks on the regular can make it dry and unmanageable. Because of this, we recommend shampooing only a few times a week with a hydrating rinse meant for a curly hair structure.
2. Show some TLC to your scalp
Make exfoliating and massaging your scalp part of your routine to reduce build-up and stimulate blood flow. Plus, it feels incredible—just see what some of our customers have to say:
“This scalp massager has been amazing, not only for exfoliating and relieving build-up, but also for making my psoriasis-fighting products work more effectively. I use this every time I wash my hair and have seen distinctly less itchiness and dryness."
- Hannah Rimm, Senior Editor, Refinery 29
“I've found this massager not just feels nice on my head while I'm showering, but it definitely makes my chemically double-processed hair look much less greasy and expands the life of my at-home blowouts."
- Alaina Demopoulos, beauty editor, Allure
Maintain a healthy scalp by pairing a detox shampoo for curly hair with one of our scalp massagers to help exfoliate dead skin, encourage hair growth, and boost shine.
3. Boost hydration with conditioners & moisturizing hair masks
To prevent frizz, your curly strands require serious hydration. As a treatment for frizzy hair, we recommend Mounia’s deep conditioner packed with nourishing oils like cumin and flaxseed.
Pro tip: For even more impact, simply use your Mounia conditioner as a leave-in hair mask and let the rich fatty acids and omega-3s work their magic. If you’re wondering how to apply a hair mask, we’ve got you covered:
- Apply your leave-in hair mask following your shampoo. Don’t rinse it out!
- Detangle and break up curls with a wide-tooth comb or fingers.
- Tie your hair in a loose bun, ponytail, or braid and let it sit all day or overnight.
- Rinse it out—love your smooth, luscious locks.
4. Add oils and hair serums to your routine
Once your hair is washed and dry, you’ll want a serum for hair that continues to seal and repair damaged strands. Mounia’s silicone-free Hair Serum does just that, leaving hair feeling lightweight and hydrated thanks to argan and prickly pear seed oils that are rich in vitamin-E and essential fatty acids.
5. Shield your strands from the sun & extreme heat
Excessive heat from hot tools and the sun’s UV rays can dry out any hair texture—especially curly ones. Below are some simple ways to protect your precious curls from the heat:
Block out harsh UVs with a hat! This one, although not a hair care product, is an awesome way to protect your curls from drying out and scalp from burning.
Keep hair hydrated with moisturizing conditioners and hair masks rich in omega-3s and vitamins that coat and protect every strand.
Apply a hair serum prior to heat exposure. Hair serums like Mounia’s are formulated with argan and prickly pear oil to seal in moisture to repair dry, overheated, or damaged hair.
6. Sleep soundly, wake up with perfect curls
Preserve your curls by tossing them in a loose ponytail, pineapple bun, or braid before you hit the hay. For additional care, try a leave-in deep conditioner that works to hydrate while you snooze.
Pro tip: Reduce friction between your hair and pillow case to minimize frizz and hair breakage. We recommend opting for a satin or silk pillowcase as they are gentler on curly hair textures.
