Love!

This is amazing, I love the curl activating lotion. I have never found a product that makes my curls more defined and stay defined without any refresh for 4 days. Found my holy grail!

All good things in moderation

It’s like crack for hair. When you’re injecting it into your follicles, it will feel like pure ecstasy. But get carried away, and your hair will end up washed up. I learnt the hard way. You only need two hits from the vessel, and don’t go anywhere near your roots. Do it right and you’ll have the softest, most defined hair ever. Do it wrong and your hair will be flatter than a piece of tin foil.

FloraCurl

Really amazing product, really light of hair and keeps it soft. Only downside is it dosent go a long way so you have to buy quite often if you have thick hair

Would you recommend it to a friend?: Yes

I have 2b, 2c, 3a high porosity, fine hair and this product works great for me. It doesn’t weigh and smells amazing. Totally recommend it

The do's and don'ts of natural hair that retains length

The do's and don'ts of natural hair that retains length

Maintaining healthy and flourishing natural hair within your natural hair journey requires a basic acceptance of the best techniques for optimum hair health, length retention and hair growth. We will take you through some essential do's and don'ts of a healthy hair regimen:

The Basics

  • Do maintain good exercise. This will feed your curls vital nutrients for it to flourish and grow.
  • Do drink plenty of water. This will boost the moisture in your hair for your length to be retained.
  • Do take good care of your scalp; do not clog it up, scratch it up or damage it chemically. Let it breath by giving it a break from protective styles.
  • Do moisturise daily and style your hair in sections as this will minimise tangling.
  • Do protect your hair daily with a cream or oil to lock in the moisture.
  • Don't overheat your hair, if possible minimise sources of direct heat and presses, to promote the health of your strands.
  • Don’t towel dry your hair. Instead shake your head or squeeze the water out and air dry or invest in a t-shirt. This will reduce frizz and friction.  

Styling and Combing

  • Do limit combing, by incorporating protective and low manipulation styles such as: Rod sets, straw sets, twist outs, braid outs, buns and braids/extensions that are not too tight on the edges. This is important during the dry seasons and winter.
  • Do love your shrinkage! Did you know that tight curls can shrink to 75% of your actual length? Experiment with styles such as twists outs and braid outs that will stretch your hair. Work with hair / curl pattern, and not against it.
  • Do dust, trim or cut hair as needed as a healthy preventative measure.
  • Don’t overmanipulate your hair and avoid the hands-in-hair syndrome by keeping your hands and nails from your beautiful, delicate tresses. Keep that strength for wash day.

Community

  • Do fall in love with your curls, your texture, your pattern and you hair shape. Self-love starts with you.
  • Do encourage others who are natural, compliment them and show them a whole lot of love.
  • Do stay connected to the online Natural Hair care community. For example, our Founder runs a blog for kinky haired naturals: 4chairinspiration.com, where the idea for Flora & Curl started.
  • Don't criticise others for their hair and styling choices. Embrace the diversity all around you, and spread love.

Naturally yours,

Team Flora & Curl
