The experts at REDAVID Salon Products provide tips and tricks to keep your curly mane under control

We all have our woes about the cold winter months ahead, especially if you have curls that are hard to maintain throughout the seasonal weather. We all want that blessed hair that looks flawless, fresh out of the shower. Unfortunately, for many of us, that’s just not the case.

The winter months bring our fear of frizzy hair and oversized texture to life. So how do we live with it instead of constantly battling it?

Here are four tips to help you manage your curly mane throughout the winter season…


1. Oil to the rescue

Being afraid to use oil is normal; no one wants hair that looks oily or weighed down. But if you choose the right oils, you will find that oils can actually contribute to the health of your hair. Hair oils come from a variety of plant-based sources made up of ingredients that are beneficial to not only your hair, but also your scalp.

Plant-based oils are very absorbent, pulling in hydration to create healthier hair. Orchid Oil, in particular, helps restore and maintain essential moisture, renewing every strand of chemically and thermally damaged hair. Best of all, the incredibly lightweight nature of Orchid Oil means it will instantly tame frizz without weighing your hair down.

2. Hydrate your mane

One of the best ways to maintain healthy-looking hair is to lock in moisture. Frizz can make curls look damaged and unhealthy. Often times, winter leaves your curls thirsty and crying for some extra hydration. If you focus on using products that are specifically for dry, curly hair, you will find that your hair starts to look more hydrated and healthy within a few uses.

Finding an ultra-nourishing repair formula is key. REDAVID has created a two-in-one hair therapy product that moisturizes while repairing dry and damaged hair. This dual therapy also mends split ends, eliminating tangles and amplifying shine.

3. Use an overnight hair mask

What better time to heal your hair than when you are sleeping? Hair conditioner is important, but sometimes it just won’t cut it and you need something richer. You can choose to leave a hair mask on for 20 to 30 minutes or opt for extra hydration by leaving it on overnight. The more damaged your hair, the more it will benefit from a longer mask treatment.

Thanks to healing ingredients in hair masks, you’ll be able to heal your strands back to the way they used to be. Simply comb the mask through your hair to make sure all strands are covered then head to bed.

4. Try a curl cream

We all want perfect curls. Those with curls know that it is not easy to maintain dreamy locks, but using a curl cream is the best way to create a controlled look. The key is to find the perfect regimen that works for you for those days that you do not feel like using heat to style your hair. Simply apply your curl cream and let your hair air dry! Or use a diffuser for those days when you’re in a rush.
