How to Keep Natural Hair SUPER Curly for 7 Days
Go an entire week without washing your hair!
Many curly hair girls with natural hair don’t realize they can go an entire week without shampooing their hair. It’s actually better for your curls! I’m going to take you through how I make it through the week with SUPER CURLY HAIR!
I use the following products for my no-wash one-week natural hair routine:
- Deva Curl Build Up Buster
- Innersense Hydrating Conditioner
- DevaCurl Decadence One
- DevaCurl SuperCream
- OribeCurl Gloss or Innersense I Create Hold
I don’t know how I would manage my curly natural hair without them!
DAY 1 – A WEEK WITH SUPER CURLY NATURAL HAIR
Wash Day – Day one is the longest of all the curly days, however, it sets me up for a whole week of easy styling and staying cute! You may want to save Day 1 for the weekend or for your Day off so you can take the time to be thorough and set yourself up for success! Skipping steps on wash day is tempting but it will come back and bite back when your natural curls are not so cute!
I love using DevaCurl Buildup Buster as my cleanser (shampoo) because after not washing my hair for a week, I need everything I used as a natural curl refresher to come out! It usually takes me 5 mins to work all the product out. I cleanse twice or until my scalp feels squeaky and my hair feels free and fluffy!. The amount of Buildup Buster to use truly depends on how much hair you have. Obviously the more curly natural hair the more product required. When the product starts to create suds that’s generally that’s a good sign that your hair and scalp are clean. Be sure to scrub your scalp while cleansing, it gets off the buildup and encourages blood flow to the hair follicles.
I follow that up usually with as much conditioner as my hair can hold; which usually for me is about a good handful. At Salon Skanda we love Innersense Hydrating Conditioner. With the best emollients on the market, hair gains maximum moisture from the conditioner encouraging plump frizz free curl and it’s eco-friendly. Don’t rinse it all out!
Adding a good quarter size amount of SuperCream on top of the conditioner leaves my hair feeling soft and hydrated with some hold. It also helps keep frizz at bay. My hair holds a lot of water so I usually wrap an all cotton T-shirt turban style and do my makeup. When I take it off all the conditioner and Supercream I need is already absorbed.
I seal all that moisture in with Oribe Curl Gloss, just a nickel size amount and give it even more hold! Another favorite is I Create Hold by Innersense. This all natural hair care uses natural honey as the holding agent!
DAY 2 – A WEEK WITH SUPER CURLY NATURAL HAIR
Day two is so easy! I usually just wet my hands and shake my roots to bring them back to life! I love that DevaCurl is water soluble so adding water actually reactivates all the products I put in on day one.
DAY 3 – A WEEK WITH SUPER CURLY NATURAL HAIR
On day three I sometimes have to add a little SuperCream or conditioner and a little water to make my natural hair feel soft again.
DAY 4 – A WEEK WITH SUPER CURLY NATURAL HAIR
By day four I usually need a nice QUICK rinse, When I say quick I mean like 5 seconds under the faucet and that’s it!! This will reactivate the products from day three so if I add anything it’s just a little SuperCream.
DAY 5 – A WEEK WITH SUPER CURLY NATURAL HAIR
Day five is every natural hair girls favorite because you just repeat day 2! On day five I might style it a little more and pin it to the side with a braid and some of my curly natural hair to the front, it’s all about doing whatever I’m feeling.
DAY 6 – A WEEK WITH SUPER CURLY NATURAL HAIR
On day six to keep my natural hair curly I’ll add some DevaCurl SuperCream, Innersense Hydrating Conditioner or DevaaCurl Curl Gloss. It depends on if I need more frizz control, hold or hydration for my natural hair.
DAY 7 – A WEEK WITH SUPER CURLY NATURAL HAIR
On day seven you just repeat day two again!
It’s already difficult enough to tame a super coily natural hair mane! Set it free on day one and set yourself up for naturally curly hair success, the rest will be a breeze!!
