New season hair care survival tips

It’s that time of year when we round up all of our research over the summer on how to mend your dehydrated, sun soaked locks and get them ready for the (dare we say it) colder months. 

  • Firstly pick a cleansing shampoos: This alternative to a weighty-sulfate packed shampoo is developed specifically for curly hair. The job of a cleansing shampoo is to cleanse the scalp and stimulate cells whilst removing dirt particles and build-up, which can create dull and dry hair. 

The result: Healthier more defined curls

Product: Aveda Be Curly Shampoo

  • Secondly, as small as it may seem try not to touch your hair! 

Particularly for tight to mid-coil curls, touching your hair whilst it is drying can break up your curl pattern which disrupts the curl pattern and can create frizziness and split ends. 

If your hair is more on the wavy side then we would suggest working in a curl product whilst it is still wet and then leaving it to dry. if you can’t wait for it to dry naturally then use a diffuser on a mid heat and take your time. 

  • Last but not least, keep bleach to a bare minimum in the months it will take to mend broken hair. As most curly hair is naturally dry, the use of bleach can send it over the edge. If you do need a root touch up or fancy a change then we suggest using a PH balanced and moisturizing cleansing conditioner to lock in moisture and rebalance the scalp

Summer Rescue Recipe

The saturated fats, vitamins A and E, protein and various other minerals in avocado are highly beneficial for dry and damaged hair. Avocado also helps add moisture to dry hair shafts and strengthen your hair.

Mash one ripe, peeled avocado. Mix in one teaspoon each of wheat-germ oil and jojoba oil to make a smooth paste. Apply the mixture on freshly washed hair, from the roots to the ends. Cover your hair with a shower cap. Leave it on for half an hour and then shampoo your hair with lukewarm water. Follow this remedy once or twice a week.

Mash a ripe, peeled avocado and add two tablespoons of olive oil to it. Mix well until the consistency is thick and smooth. Shampoo and rinse your hair. Apply the mixture to your hair and leave it on for 30 minutes.

Finally, rinse your hair. Do this once a week.

5 reasons I recommend Unruly Curls, to every curly person I meet!

1. Literally the only salon I have ever really trusted after a haircut. In fact, I literally travel nearly 2 hours each way to come here. 
2. My hair has never felt better or required less fuss to look good daily than since I started coming here. Totally redefined what I expect from "a good hair day" - its not just nice for the 30mins after you leave the salon!
3. They recommend the best products, not the expensive ones. Seriously, I've saved a LOT.
4. The staff are lovely. They genuinely take your input - on what insane quirks/tendencies your hair has, how you wear it, if you want it big etc.
5. Pride. In a nutshell, I haven't straightened my hair once since I started coming here.
