Absolutely Amazing

I have been using these products for a couple of weeks. I had never heard of the make before until it was mentioned in a curly girl on line group. Now, I love these products. The consistency, smell and effectiveness is absolutely fantastic and the ethics are also what I’m looking for. I am so well impressed, I will be sticking with this brand 😊

Nice & gentle clay wash. My hair was left feeling super clean (but not stripped), nourished & strengthened. It also had a nice shine to it.

How to Protect Your Curls Against The Summer Sun

Summer natural curly hair products


It's time to get summer ready, and we are here to help you get your beautiful tresses prepared for some of your summer plans!

How To Swim-Proof Your Natural Hair against Chlorine

Chlorine in swimming pools can be drying if hair is not protected properly against it. Whenever I go swimming, I always take the following measures using the Moisture Therapy.

THE SCIENCE ON UV LIGHT AND HAIR

Can UV light from the sun damage your hair? Short answer is yes. The radiological properties from this spectrum of light can breakdown protein bonds (effecting shine and strength), and fade pigmentation of hair color (ever wonder why you your hair gets "lighter" after a trip to the beach?) But most of the damage caused by direct sunlight is simply due to the evaporation of the natural oils that keep it healthy and shiny.The heat and direct UV exposure causes much of these oils to evaporate off your scalp, taking away moisture and the natural sheen of your hair as it does so. This can cause it to become dry, brittle and frayed. Imagine how much more prone textured hair is to direct sun light.

WHAT TO DO BEFORE SWIMMING

1. Coat Your Hair: Protect your hair by coating your strands with a rich oil formula or dense butter to provide a healthy layer against the chlorine chemical and saltiness in the ocean. I like to saturate my hair with the African Citrus Protect Me Oil to deliver UV/sunlight protection on the beach and the Flower Garden Nourish Me Butter to protect against the chlorine/saltiness.

The African Citrus Bloom Oil is infused with Baobab, Kalahari and Papaya Oil:

  • Baobab, Manketti and Kalahari Oils are sourced deep in the Sahara, and contain a high level of copper which helps the production of melanin and is responsible for keeping hair color intact.
  • Papaya Oil is extracted from the sweet and delicious papaya fruit seeds. It helps to repair split ends and is known to restrict dandruff and protects from ultraviolet rays, making it an all-natural sunscreen.

2. Protective Style: This is key for your hair health as well as for your swimming performance! It doesn’t have to be braids with extensions, it can be as simple as putting your hair in cornrows or twists so that you reduce surface area. After oiling my hair, I put my hair into twisted/braided sections to keep it from tangling, before entering the pool. My twists always help me swim better.

WHAT TO DO AFTER SWIMMING

Immediately after swimming, I rinse or shampoo my hair in the shower and lightly condition my hair with the Jasmine Rose Floral Hydration Mist. This will rinse out the chlorine and saltiness and prevent them from further drying out your hair and Organic Rose Flower Water will instantly restore your hair's natural ph level to its normal state.

Naturally yours,

Team Flora & Curl
