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

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 Role of Vitamins in Hair Health

August 02, 2019 1 Comment

Best Natural Curly Hair Products

Most of us spend our time searching for our holy grail product—the one that will give us shiny, frizz free curls. And while hair products that are free of sulfates and silicones but nutrient packed ARE important, even more important to our hair health are the foods we consume! 

If you want hair that has elasticity, strength, and shine, you need to be drinking plenty of water and eating key foods in order to get the vitamins needed to support your hair goals. Let’s take a look at four key vitamins.

Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid)

I know when I think of this vitamin, I think of orange juice. Orange everything! But this vitamin is so much more--it is necessary to create the protein collagen, which contains important amino acids that support the structure of hair. Vitamin C also aids in the absorption of iron, a mineral that promotes hair growth.

Natural Sources of Vitamin C: Oranges, lemons, broccoli, kale

Vitamin D (D2 ergocalciferol and D3 cholcalciferol)

Going beyond our bone health, this vitamin also maintains the health of hair follicles. Lacking sufficient vitamin D can contribute to hair thinning and loss. Because this vitamin stimulates the hair follicles to grow and remain healthy, having the right levels can help with hair thickness too.

Natural Sources of Vitamin D: Sunshine, milk, salmon, grains, fortified juices

Vitamin B complex group

Many of us curlies already know about the magic of Biotin (B7), but it’s is only one of several key B vitamins: B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B9 (folate) and B12 (cobalamin). This group of vitamins carries oxygen and blood to the scalp which maintains and supports follicle health. There is evidence that having sufficient levels of each of these vitamins will aid in hair growth and strength.

Natural Sources: Eggs, nuts, avocado

Vitamin E (Tocopherol)

This vitamin has natural antioxidant effects. Antioxidant properties help the body prevent breakdown of the hair follicle. Studies have shown that vitamin E can increase blood flow to support healthy scalp skin. Scalp health seems to be the key to healthy hair!

Natural Sources: Vegetable oil, nuts, seeds

Remember—more isn’t always better! Research shows that an overload of vitamins can actually contribute to hair loss and thinning. It’s important to have vitamin levels checked before adding any supplements to your routine. As always, it’s best to get your vitamins from a well-balanced diet. Now, go eat some oranges, kale, and nuts!

Yours in Hair Health,

Team Flora & Curl

Hiya

I’m new to Flora & Curl. I have a quick question, my hair is very much 4c texture (supremely dry and very, very slow growing), are Floral & Curl products formulated to suite this hair type? Please advise. Many thanks
