Moisturising Conditioners & Treatments for Curly Hair


Due to the twists and coils in curly hair, it is prone to dryness, making hair hydration an essential element of your routine. Our collection of curl products are formulated to rehydrate and moisturise curly hair types at every step in your haircare routine. 


To begin hydrating your curly hair, use a moisturising conditioner. Choose from both rinse out and leave-in conditioners to find the perfect match for you.


If you find yourself with dry locks, they may appreciate an added dose of hair hydration with a rich hair treatment. Using a hydrating mask could help to bring the bounce back to your natural hair texture.


The Importance of Keeping Curls Hydrated


Hair hydration is a vital aspect of haircare, ensuring your locks are thoroughly moisturised and don’t become overly dry. Dry hair can appear dull, frizzy, and is more prone to hair breakage. Adding enough hydration into your routine can help you achieve healthy, frizz-free locks!


When it comes to styling, the best way to hydrate curly hair is to embrace your gorgeous natural texture! Opting for a hydrating hair styling product, such as a lightweight cream could help you keep your locks nourished and looking incredible!


Hydration for Every Hair Type


Every curl type requires different care, and one aspect that affects hair hydration is hair porosity. Hair porosity refers to how your strands retain moisture:


  • Low Porosity - Low porosity hair has tight cuticles that make it difficult for water to penetrate or leave the strand. Achieving hair hydration with low porosity could mean using a heated shower cap whilst wearing a treatment to help it fully nourish the strands.

  • Medium Porosity - Medium porosity hair has wider spaces between cuticles and so lets hydration in and out of the strands. Keeping up hair hydration in this type is vital for luscious curls!

  • High Porosity - High porosity hair has very open cuticles and so lets hydration in and out very easily. For ultimate hair hydration for this porosity, sealing in water with a product like our Oil-in-Cream is essential to get the tresses of your dreams!


Porosity can change overtime due to hair damage caused by heat tools, bleach, and elastic hair ties. Due to this, how you ensure optimum hair hydration may change with time.
