TWA Curly Hair Routine Featuring DEVACURL
Since I big chopped in October 2018, I’ve had to make some major changes to my curly hair routine! Up until recently, my hair has been so short that I haven’t had to do much. However, I’ve decided to grow my hair out again which calls for a simple, moisturizing routine. This time around, I’ve been loving DevaCurl and I’ve nailed down a quick summer routine that helps give my TWA the perfect wash and go every time!
Step One: Wash and Condition
My 3B/3C curls are very, dry, brittle, and thin. So It’s important for my shampoo to not be harsh and moisture stripping. I’ve been loving DevaCurl’s No-Poo Original Zero Lather Conditioning Cleanser. It’s rich, creamy, and smells light and refreshing. To start, I always drench my hair with water and apply DevaCurl’s No-Poo Original Zero Lather Conditioning Cleanser to the top of my head. I focus the cleanser on my scalp and gently work in with my fingertips. Then, I rinse and repeat if needed.
DevaCurl’s One Condition Original Daily Cream Conditioner is a real treat for my curls. Like the cleanser, it’s super-rich, creamy, and smells great! I apply DevaCurl’s One Condition Original Daily Cream Conditioner to the top of my head and work into my ends. Then, I finger detangle and rinse.
Step Two: Leave-In Conditioner
Leave-in conditioner is important because it creates a moisturizing base for your other products. My current leave-in conditioner of choice is DevaCurl’s Leave-In Decadence Ultra Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner. In my opinion, it truly lives up to its name! It’s creamy but doesn’t weigh down my curls, fast-absorbing, and very moisturizing. After I wash, condition, and rinse, I apply DevaCurl’s Leave-In Decadence Ultra Moisturizing Leave-In Conditioner to my damp hair from root to ends!
Step Three: Styling Cream
The next step in my routine is to apply a styling cream. Styling cream is necessary for a variety of reasons, but I use it for the following: to add moisture, tame frizz, and create curl definition. My favorite styling cream from DevaCurl is their Supercream Coconut Curl Styler. It does everything I look for in a styling cream and it smells amazing! While my hair is still damp, I apply one pump of DevaCurl’s Supercream Coconut Curl Styler into my hands and smooth it over my curls. When my hair was longer, I would section it into four and apply a half pump to each section.
Once I’m confident that I’ve coated my entire head with the styling cream, I flip my head over and begin to finger coil my crown and hairline with the leftover styling cream that’s on my hands. If needed, I’ll do this with a half pump DevaCurl’s Supercream Coconut Curl Styler. This helps to control frizz in these areas and gives my curls extra definition.
Step Four: Gel
I generally don’t like to apply a gel to my curls. I find that it can be overly drying and leave a residue on my hair. DevaCurl’s Ultra Defining Gel Strong Hold No-Crunch Styler is the only gel that I like to use over my entire head. It’s non-drying, non-sticky, and has a decent hold. However, the smell is a little off-putting for me as it’s sweetness overpowers the rest of my products. I can only describe the smell as “super sweet liquid candy,” if that makes sense. Anyways, a nickel-sized amount does the job. I apply DevaCurl’s Ultra Defining Gel Strong Hold No-Crunch Styler to my hand, tilt my head forward, and scrunch my curls in an upward motion.
Step Five: Oil
Once my hair has dried, I apply DevaCurl’s High Shine Multi-Benefit Oil as the finishing product. I wrote a review on DevaCurl’s High Shine Multi-Benefit Oil and encourage you to check it out! First, I spray the oil all over my hair. Then, I spray it onto my hands, rub them together, and fluff out my curls with my fingers. Once I’m satisfied with my fluffiness, I grab my wide-tooth comb and pick out my roots for added volume.
That’s it! My TWA Curly Hair Routine featuring DEVACURL is super simple and takes no longer than 15-30 minutes from start to finish. Notice, I didn’t include deep conditioners, treatments, etc. I wanted to focus this particular post on the basic structure of what makes a curly hair routine work for me.
