Excellent for adding slip and decreasing frizz!

I was hesitant to use a leave-in set angler because my hair is so fine and is often weighed-down by leave-in products and conditioners. I do rinse this product out just for a few seconds, and leave the rest in, but wow has it transformed my curls! I started using this, combined with the foam mousse, and just one or two pumps of the curl gel, and my curls have never looked better!!! Not planning to change a thing about this routine, which is really saying something because I swear I have to change my routine constantly because nothing seems to work. So I’m very happy with these products!

Superfruit hair oil

Love it. The smell is subtle and delicious. The combination of oils gives it a soft and easy consistency without greasiness. Only a little needed. I have 4c textured hair and my hair agrees with it. Thumbs up from me!!

Would you recommend it to a friend?: Yes
Fine gel

The gel smells amazing and defines my curls well, although for me it is probably better as refreshment bc the hold is not that strong for my curls.

Mini Essentials Curl Kit

Short & Type 4: The Celeb Edition!

Short & Type 4: The Celeb Edition!

Although we are seeing a change in the mainstream media with regards to celebrities, influencers and the general public challenging westernised beauty ideals, it is still hard to navigate content surrounding natural hair. Luckily, here at Flora & Curl, we are constantly on the look for the latest hairstyles for all curl types with the addition of tips and tricks to help those textured tresses truly flourish! So, sit back and relax – take a look at our most-loved hairstyles from some of our faves including Letitia Wright and Lizzo (to name a couple)!

Tress-stretch

Michaela Coel

Michaela Coel embraces her textured tresses by stretching her fro out to reinforce softness and length.

How to achieve:

Protect coils with our Superfruit Hair Oil and use minimal heat from a blow-dryer to stretch out sections of the hair. Use your hands to gently pull these sections outwards to create this sensational stretched effect! Finish off with a light spritz of our Jasmine Oasis Hair Mist to keep those kinks hydrated.

Cotton candy dreaming

 Lupita Nyong'o

We’re absolutely in-love with Lupita Nyong’o’s TWA (teeny weeny afro)! Keep it simple with a cute minimalistic headband.

How to achieve:

Detangle your fro with our dreamy Organic Rose & Honey Leave-in Detangler with either fingers, wide-tooth comb or an afro comb. Bring out the volume by fluffing the roots with one of the recommended tools.

Pro-tip: Why not slick back the front of the hair to really embrace that volume? Simply use a few pumps of our Sweet Hibiscus Gel and finish off with a cute headband!

Slick it back

Letitia Wright

Letitia Wright is giving us REAL boss vibes with her natural slicked-back look. Super easy to recreate!

How to achieve:

Spritz hair with a few sprays of our Jasmine Oasis Hair Mist to make sure you have primed your coils with the most natural blends of plant-powered ingredients to keep those coils hydrated and ready to slick back. Add a few drops of our African Citrus Bloom Superfruit Hair Oil and evenly distribute with a detangling brush. Apply a small amount of our luscious leave-in to add hold and prevent fly-aways and gently scrape back the hair with your detangling brush again.

Pro-tip: Once your hair has absorbed most of the product, add a little volume by buffing the back if you feel it is too slicked for you!

Fluffy-fro

Lizzo 

Lizzo’s fro has got us in awe. The precision is uncanny and my gosh, we are just loving how fluffy she has got it!

How to achieve: As always with an afro, make sure it is primed with an ultra-hydrating component. We advise using a few spritzes of our Jasmine Oasis Hair Mist and using an afro comb to bring out the fro even more. Start combing from the ends to prevent breakage and repeat combing on hydrated hair to get the perfect precision for your fro like Lizzo!

Pro-tip: Not feeling the stretched-out, precise, fluffy-fro? Why not opt for a gorgeous defined fro? Simply follow the above but after using our Hair Mist, add a small amount of our Sweet Hibiscus Curl Activating Lotion and distribute evenly with your afro comb. Repeat this, but with our Sweet Hibiscus Curl Defining Gel and allow for the cast to harden. Once hardened, break the gel cast with a few drops of our African Citrus Bloom Superfruit Hair Oil and SOTC. Finally, to add volume, use your afro comb at the roots to fluff!

Mini Bantu-knot

Michaela Coel

Yes, Michaela Coel is back at it again serving you another chic type 4 hairstyle and we kind of dig it (A LOT). Coel’s mini bantu-knots are not only beautiful for going out, but a perfect protective style too!

How to achieve:

We really want to keep these bantu-knots tight, secure and sealed with a whole lot of hydration and moisture to keep it neat, shiny and of course, healthy!

  1. First of all, spritz hair down with our Jasmine Oasis Hair Mist and distribute with either fingers, detangling brush or a wide-tooth comb.
  2. Apply a generous amount of our Organic Rose & Honey Leave-in Detangler to your coils and distribute with one of the recommended tools above.
  3. Now section hair into at least 9 sections for the cutest mini-bantu knots.
  4. For each section, add a couple of drops of our African Citrus Bloom Superfruit Hair Oil and dampen with your hair mist if needed.
  5. When working on each section, start to create a mini bantu-knot by splitting the strand in two and making a twist.
  6. Now roll the twist in a circular motion making sure the end is tucked under the bantu-knot you have just created.
  7. Simply add a bobby pin to the ends of the mini bantu-knots to make sure it is holding the mini bantu-knot in place.
  8. Repeat steps 4 – 6 and take a look at those gorgeous swirly mini bantu-knots!

Pro-tip: Don’t like bobby pins? Use mini hair bands, but be careful when you tie the mini bantu-knots as you do not want to manipulate the hair shaft excessively.
