Voeding voor krullend haar is the key!

From Wavy to Curly? Is that possible with your curls?

Can Curls Change from Wavy to Curly?

Yes, that's possible! 

 van wavy naar curly

but recently also saw it with our brand ambassador Merel from CurlySamples. She hadn't even noticed it until we sent her a photo from six months ago.

WITHWe immediately made a post about it and we will share the information with you below!

 voeding voor krullend haar is een gamechanger

"Wow! In 1 year you can say that my hair has gone from wavy to curly! So your curl type can always change and improve."

These are my tips.

  • Find a good curly hairdresser who can cut a nice round shape with connecting layers in your hair. I have had at least 3 different layers cut in my hair. Short hair suits my curls so much better. It jumps up more and has more volume.
  • Minimize heat and dyeing, I dye my hair a maximum of 2 times a year, (previously 4 times). I blow dry on the warm setting, which provides more definition.
  • Use CG Curls products. I have been using the moisture line from CG Curls for six months now. I'm a huge fan of this complete line! I don't have to keep looking for new products. Sometimes I add protein drops to the Curl Cream on wash day. All products are CG proof! 
  • Define your hair with a brush when applying products on wash day. Divide your hair into sections so that the product can get everywhere.
  • Less = more.. Use more water rather than more product! 
  • Be patient! Be kind to your hair and give it time.
  • You will learn to understand her better and better. 

Fun fact: She told me that she DARES to use other products anymore, afraid that the result will be less....


Which factor is important to transform your curls?

Besides the great tips mentioned above, the most important thing is that there is enough nutrition in the products. Just like in the human body, it performs better if you get good and sufficient nutrition. 

A comparison: French fries are tasty from time to time, but if you feed yourself daily/regularly with these types of snacks, you will feel this in your body. And the same applies to hair products. If you use products that contain little or no nutrition, you will not see any improvement in your curl pattern in the long term.

And we can compare the fries (cheap, tasty but not good nutrition) with hair products. Unfortunately, it is impossible to market cheap products that provide sufficient nourishment to your curls. Nourishing ingredients are simply more expensive!

What ingredients should you look for in your curl products?

Hair products can contain various ingredients that are nourishing for your hair. Here are some common ingredients known for their nourishing properties: Keep in mind that these ingredients must be in the top 5 -8 of the INCI.

  • Argan oil: Argan oil is rich in vitamin E and fatty acids. It hydrates and repairs damaged hair, makes it shiny and reduces frizz.
  • Coconut Oil: Coconut oil has deep moisturizing properties and can repair dry, damaged hair and add shine.
  • Shea Butter: Shea Butter nourishes the hair with vitamins A, E and F. Vitamins A and E help maintain the hair and keep it shiny and healthy. Vitamin F works against brittle and brittle hair and adds shine.
  • Aloe Vera: Aloe Vera gel soothes the scalp and hydrates the hair, leaving it soft and shiny.
  • Jojoba Oil: Jojoba oil is similar to the scalp's natural oils and can help balance sebum production, which can aid in a healthy scalp and shiny hair.
  • Panthenol (vitamin B5): Panthenol has moisturizing properties and can help improve overall hair health
  • Plant oils (e.g. olive oil, almond oil, avocado oil): Vegetable oils contain fatty acids that can nourish and hydrate the hair
  • Proteins: Proteins can strengthen the hair and help maintain resilience.

It is important to note that the effectiveness of these ingredients may vary depending on your hair type and specific needs.

It's a good idea to choose hair products that are tailored to your hair type and any issues you want to address, such as dryness, damage, frizz or an oily/itchy scalp.

Reading the ingredient list on hair products can help you make the right choices based on your needs.
