Deciphering key terms for perfect curly hair with Elgon
Are you ready to truly take care of your curly hair, but finding yourself overwhelmed by numerous terms, not knowing where to start? In this article, we'll explore together some key concepts that will make your journey to perfect curls easier and more effective.
Wash day is the heart of the Curly Girl Method, a day dedicated entirely to cleaning and nourishing your curls. During this day, follow a complete routine that includes washing with a gentle cleanser, applying a mask, and optionally using specific treatments for curly hair. Try YES CURLS!
Deep conditioning is a crucial step to ensure deep hydration for your curls. Use a nutrient-rich mask suitable for your curl type, leave it on for a few minutes to maximize the result.
The Finger Coiling technique involves defining curls using your fingers instead of combs or brushes. This method helps maintain the natural shape of curls and minimizes hair breakage. While your hair is still wet, apply your favorite curl cream (check out Memory Cream), then work strand by strand and coil it around your fingers. This ensures perfect curls!
Plopping is a drying technique that involves wrapping your hair in a T-shirt to absorb excess moisture without damaging the curl structure.
Glazing is the even application of styling products across the entire hair, ensuring equal distribution of products and long-lasting curl definition.
Scrunching is a styling technique that involves gently "scrunching" the hair tips from the bottom upwards to define curls and encourage the formation of natural waves. The more you scrunch, the more amazing results you'll achieve.
2nd Hair Day:
2nd Hair Day refers to the second day after washing when your curls have already taken shape, and you can maintain the look with small touch-ups, thanks to the use of Hydra Spray.
Refresh is the final touch to revive your curls between wash days, often using hydrating sprays like Hydra Spray.
The beauty and perfection of your curly hair are in your hands, and with Elgon, along with YES CURLS, every day is an opportunity to celebrate your perfect curls!
