CURL MANIFESTO Find the Curly Hair Routine
For You, For Your Best Hair Yet
A hair care routine personalised routine is key for enhancing your natural curly hair and revealing natural hair you love. Find the best curly hair products for your hair all in one place!
No two curls are exactly alike! Curly hair comes in all shapes and sizes, from loose waves and bouncy curls to beautiful corkscrew tendrils, and these differences go beyond just how the hair looks. All curly hair types require a personalised hair care routine to ensure your curls are cared for and are given the chance to look and feel their best all day, everyday. With the help of Kerastase, finding the right hair care routine and styling tools will become a breeze. Below we reveal 3 simple routines for various curl types, all utilising our incredible new line carefully formulated for curly hair - Curl Manifesto.
Routine #1: Wavy Curls
The first routine was created with Type 2 wavy curls in mind. Although Type 2 hair is prone to frizz, it tends to reflect shine pretty well. Wavy curls are not particularly oily or dry. Type 2 hair can range from 2A, which is fine, thin hair and relatively easy to style, through to 2C which is quite thick and prone to frizz, making finding the right curly hair products very important.
A simple 4-step hair care routine that starts with shampoo - Bain Hydration Douceur - to remove product build-up. Apply the gentle creamy shampoo to hair, and let it thoroughly clean the scalp and strands whilst also nourishing and hydrating.
Next comes the conditioner - Fondant Hydration Essentielle. This replenishes the hair’s moisture without weighing down the strands.
When it comes to styling you can choose between the Crème de Jour Fondamentale, a frizz-reducing leave-in product for soft and hydrated curls or the Gelée Curl Contour, if you want to really enhance and define your waves without the crunch. They can also be mixed together.
Our hero product, Refresh Absolu is a second-day curl refreshing spray that imparts hydration, enhances shine and re-energises your curls.
Routine #2: Big Curly Hair
Our second routine was created with Curl Type 3 in mind. These big, spiral curls range from loose and springy to tight ringlets. This type of hair is not as shiny as straight or wavy hair because the follicles don’t lay as flat; instead, you have coarse, frizzy hair. The reason behind this is due to the lack of natural moisture migrating from roots to tips. This curl type has to deal with dryness, breakage, frizz and tangles, so it needs some extra TLC.
Firstly, apply the Bain Hydration Douceur to cleanse the scalp and strands, and remove product build-up. With its creamy texture it nourishes and hydrates curly hair through and through.
Instead of a conditioner, this curl type responds better to a masque. We recommend the Masque Beurre Haute Nutrition, an extra rich treatment to deeply nourish and smooth the hair, whilst also helping you to detangle your curls with ease (meaning less chance of unwanted breakage).
Our Moisturiser, Define, Shine styling products help you to create the final look you want. Crème de Jour Fondamentale tackles frizz thanks to its smoothing leave-in formula. The Gelée Curl Contour helps you to really define your beautiful curls, while the Huile Sublime Repair is a nourishing multi-use oil that you can use on scalp and strands to feed with nutrients and enhance much-wanted shine. For optimal results, layer the three curly hair products for intense nourishment, hydration and shine.
A total strand-saver, Refresh Absolu is a mist that refreshes, enhances and moisturises curls between washes.
Routine #3: Coily Hair
This hair care routine is created for Curl Type 4. Coily hair is one of the most fragile hair types that requires a lot of extra care. You may find your coils have an “S” pattern or they may have a less defined pattern, but whichever you have both require plenty of attention.
Apply our multi-tasking Huile Sublime Repair used to nourish and detangle your curls before cleansing. You can also use it at the styling stage, making it a true multi-tasker!
The cornerstone of all our curly-hair products, the Bain Hydration Douceur cleanses the scalp and strands, whilst also removing product build-up. It’s effective at cleansing but its creamy texture also nourishes and hydrates your precious curls.
Curl Type 4 responds better to a masque than a conditioner. The Curl Manifesto Masque Beurre Haute Nutrition is an extra rich treatment that is incredibly nourishing and leaves your curls smooth and free of tangles.
We recommend a trio of styling products: Known as the LOC method (Leave-in, oil and cream), begin with the leave-in cream, layer with the oil and finish with the gelee (gel cream) to lock the moisture and define curls. The Crème de Jour Fondamentale, a leave-in frizzy hair reducing treatment, the Huile Sublime Repair oil to nourish scalp and strands and the Gelée Curl Contour to enhance the beauty of your natural curly hair.
Apply the Huile Sublime Repair (see, we told you it was a multi-talker) at night to add extra nourishment and care to your curls while you get your beauty sleep.
Finish off your routine with the Refresh Absolu, a mist that refreshes, enhances and moisturises your natural curly hair so you can avoid any need to over-wash.
