Back-to-school season is officially here! If you’re a first-year or returning college student, you might remember the first time you moved into your dorm and thought, “What am I going to do with my hair?” The answer is: not compromise your beauty routine. If you have natural hair, keeping it healthy can be a challenge, but not impossible.
These top four natural hair products (all apart of our Twist-Out Bundle) will make your life easier back at school.
Detox Clarifying Shampoo
For women with finer textured hair, daily washing is not an option. If you have coarser, curly hair, you may discover that daily washes will leave you with a tangled, brittle mess.
To make your curls last longer in-between washes, we suggest using a deep cleansing clarifying and detoxifying shampoo.
Our shampoo (DETOX) contains an array of natural ingredients that leave the hair soft and shiny, including peppermint oil and real apple cider vinegar. This type of shampoo leaves your hair softer and makes it easier to comb through, as it’s formulated to cleanse your hair of previous product buildup, pollutants, residue, and excess oils.
It’s useful in helping you maintain healthy, balanced curls. For best results, massage our DETOX shampoo into your scalp for a few minutes after wetting it with warm water. Lather it down your curls before moving on to the next step of your wash day process.
Prime Smoothing + Detangling Conditioner
On typical wash days when you need a regular rinse-out conditioner, try our PRIME Smoothing & Detangling Conditioner. A rinse-out is a quick, easy way to hydrate hair and ease the detangling process.
Rinse-outs like PRIME have a creamy base. If you decide to go with a conditioner like this, remember to apply from ends to root. A rinse-out conditioner works by smoothing the hair cuticle and softening your natural curls. It’s best to choose conditioners with natural vitamins, herbs, and nutrients.
Ingredients like pro-Vitamin B5 liven up dull strands with its ultra-hydrating properties. You’ll also want to look for a conditioner that has a silicone-free formula, like PRIME. Formulas like this are effective in detangling unwanted knots and tangles.
Bounce Curl Defining Cream
Curling creams are a wonderful styling solution after washes, especially our BOUNCE Curl Defining Cream. Simply apply it to freshly washed and conditioned curls, and it will automatically produce bouncy, defined, and shiny curls–no heat required.
Set Curl Defining Mousse
If you travel often, or if you find that you need to stretch out washes, try using a curl-defining mousse like SET. This is especially great to use while on vacation or while living in a dorm, because its easy to travel with and take up less space in your bag.
Mousses are perfect for thick, curly hair and are rich in vitamins and minerals, such as aloe leaf juice, ginger, and rosemary.
Satin pillowcases help to keep your hair hydrated, reduces frizz, and prevents breakage—all while making it shine! The fabric of a satin pillowcase is very smooth, meaning it does not come into direct contact with your hair. This means that your hair does not rub against the fabric and lose its natural oils and moisture.
The satin fabric is also very lightweight, so it does not put pressure on your hair, reducing breakage and facilitating healthy hair growth. The pillowcase also has a very smooth texture, so it does not create static electricity and does not bring out your hair’s natural shine and luster.
