Foamalicious!

I follow CGM (modified with wet brushing) and have tried the Pantene mousse and Aveda foam, neither of which I repurchased but this F & C foam is truly amazing. Great on wash day & for refreshes. I pair it with the F &C curl cream and would describe it’s consistency as being in between a mousse & a foam. The smell is also divine 💕

Surprised

I didn't know what to expect as I have never used a foam before so I made sure I didn't have huge expectations. Well I was wrong. I have fine, delicate ringlets that can flop at a moment's notice. This foam is so easy to use I applied after the curl activating lotion (a favourite) my hair just sucked it right up and formed some beautiful clumps . A mixture of air drying and diffusing (I get bored) and oh WOW curls look strong for once in their life, defined and standing to attention. I would like to point out that my husband commented "Wow haven't seen your hair that curly " so that's massive. This will how be a staple in my curly routine. Don't think about it just try it you won't be dissapoonted.

Amazing

How To Make Flora & Curl Work For You: The Gym Edition

June 09, 2019

African Citrus Superfruit Shampoo

With Summer right around the corner, it's that time of the year again to hit the gym and get beach ready, but what about protecting your curls? 

The beauty of natural hair means our hair is very versatile. When we think of going to the gym, we automatically think of how long it took to achieve the perfect twist out, getting amazing definition and how to protect our hair while working up a sweat. But what about taking care of your curls after the gym?

For simple hair styles, check out our previous post How To Maintain Your Curls While Working Out where you'll find simple styles and how to care for your hair.

There isn't much to do before the gym as you are likely to sweat around your hair line. If you plan to do a full wash day that week or co wash, then you could detangle your hair pre workout, giving you less to do during wash day. 

After The Gym

Now this is the important bit. If you are working out mid week, then try opting for a co-wash (a conditioner-only wash). This will gently cleanse your curls and scalp while keeping moisture and avoiding some of the drying agents shampooing can cause.

Water rinsing or letting the steam from the shower penetrate your hair strands is also a good idea, adding moisture and lightly re-freshing the hair. After this, try adding our Flower Garden Hair Butter or African Citrus Superfruit Hair Oil to seal in the moisture. 

If it's the end of the week, then a full cleansing wash day is just what the doctor ordered.

  1. Start with our African Citrus Superfruit Shampoo to gently cleanse your curls and rid them of impurities and build-up, all while revitalising and restoring its shine and vitality.
  2. Locking in that moisture, follow up with our Flower Garden Hair Butter as a no rinse conditioning treatment. Apply and sit with a plastic cap using heat if desired to improve penetration. Leave in to restore moisture and add shine to dull and dry hair. 
  3. Next for extra moisture, you can choose to apply our Organic Rose & Honey Detangler or you can skip this step. Our leave-in detangler adds moisture, slip and shine back into the hair. Detangling and smoothing the hair strands. It is light weight so will not weigh the hair down.
  4. Lastly, finish with the  African Citrus Superfruit Hair Oil to instantly seal in moisture and ends while adding shine and softness.

Whether it be one or all products, find a sequence that works for you and suits your hair type.

If you can't wait to go home and start wash day, the minis in our Moisture Discovery Kit has everything you need for maximum on the go moisture looking after your hair while you focus on those workout goals. 

How do you maintain you hair regime while hitting it hard at the gym?

Naturally yours,

Team Flora & Curl
