Hair/Hair Type/Curly Hair/Type 3

If you have curls you will probably get compliments a lot. But one of the biggest misconceptions about curls is that it's 'easy'. Maybe you are one of the exceptions, but for healthy, shiny, frizz-free and voluminous curls you really have to do something. Moreover, curly hair is more fragile than straight or wavy hair, so you can't get away with dyeing or straightening. Do you want to discover what your curls really have to offer, or do you want to bring your hairstyle back to life? Then quickly read how you can use the most used oil in the 'curls community'

NO GREASY HAIR

Although curls are naturally a bit drier than wavy or straight hair, one curl is not the other. Do you have thin hair? Then be careful that your hair does not become too greasy or too heavy. Only treat your hair with oil 2 to 3 times a week before washing it. Also try to use styling products sparingly and use them in combination with water when refreshing your curls between washes.

SCALP MASSAGES

The scalp massage is the most well-known treatment with castor oil because the movement also stimulates the skin. So double profit. Use Pure castor oil or a mix of different oils for this. Because castor oil is naturally thicker (similar to liquid honey), it is often mixed with, for example, jojoba oil, coconut oil or argan oil. Apply a few drops of oil to your fingertips and massage the oil into the scalp. Repeat for the entire head. You can leave the oil on for 15 minutes, a few hours or overnight. Depending on your hair type, you can massage a little every night before going to sleep. But if you have fairly thin hair, it's better to do it only before your wash day or wash.

AS A MASK

For a mask with pure castor oil, you proceed in much the same way as for a head massage, but then apply the oil to the entire hair. Could your hair use some extra care? Then try one of the masks with castor oil as a deep conditioner.

AS PRE-POO

A pre-poo is using oil in your hair before a wash. It puts a protective layer over your hair, as it were, so that your hair absorbs less water (quickly) and the hair cuticles rise less. This is good for two reasons: the hair swells and shrinks less and the hair is less vulnerable during washing. In addition, the hair is slightly easier to comb and dries out less quickly. Always use a good cleansing sulfate-free shampoo.

SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

Use a good cleansing shampoo that does not aggravate too much, such as the JBCO Shampoo SheaMoisture . Is your hair damaged or very dry? Then always use a conditioner without silecones and, if necessary, let it soak in a little longer for extra hydration. You can also wash your hair with only a conditioner (co-wash), but we do recommend using a clarifying shampoo once in a while to rid your hair of residue.

STYLING FOR MEDIUM TO LONG HAIR

STEP 1: MORE HYDRATION (OPTIONAL)

If your hair still feels dry after a conditioner, you can opt for a cream, lotion or leave-in conditioner as pre-styling. Also make sure that you do not use too much, so that it does not become too heavy. Can your curls take quite a bit and is it naturally a bit drier? Then use a small amount of castor oil over your cream, lotion or leave-in. You lock in the hydration, so to speak, so that it retains moisture better, but is also better protected against moisture loss. Moreover, it gives extra shine!

STEP 2: DEFINING YOUR CURLS

Do you especially want more waves or curls in your hair? Then a good gel is a must. Your hair really needs an extra helping hand to keep it from sagging while drying. To do this, apply the gel to wet (less fluff but also less volume) or towel-dried hair by ironing from bottom to top. Pay attention to the amount and type of gel so that it does not become too heavy. If necessary, divide the hair into parts for optimal effect. Then thoroughly knead the curls in your hair. If your hair is very wet, you can use an old t-shirt or microfiber cloth. Then let it dry completely, repeat, completely. Use a diffuser if necessary. Note: do not knead your hair in the meantime to prevent fluff! Your hair should then be a bit hard. Then knead your hair until your hair is soft again. Result: wavy and bouncy locks!
