If you are using non-water soluble products such as shampoo, mousses, oils and silicones chances are that your hair may be congested with a build-up of toxins including parabens, silicones and sulfates.

Your curls will receive optimum care and you will leave with a curl care routine. Due to the diverse nature of curly hair, it is important to follow these guides to achieve the best possible results long term.
Curl Detox Guide
Many products on the market today contain ingredients that upset the curl pattern, causing frizziness. These include silicones, parabens, sulfates etc. and they are found in a host of styling products such as mousses, waxes, gels, shampoos.
Your hair is cut by each individual curl, according to its own pattern. As the ingredients upset the curl pattern it is important that your hair is deeply cleansed to remove as much of these as possible.
First cleanse: Start by cleansing your hair with a chelating or clarifying shampoo and follow with a heavy conditioner or treatment.
The shampoo removes residue and leaves the hair and scalp super clean so follow with a treatment to restore the hair.
Use plenty of conditioner as a styling product and dry hair.
Second cleanse: Use warm water only and conditioner. Repeat and leave-in conditioner as a styling product.
