Hey guys! Today I wanted to share my updated curly hair routine. I haven’t posted anything about my hair or the products I’ve been using in over a year. It’s changed several times and since I just went and had my first curly session and cut, I’m switching it up again. I went to Oasis Hair Salon in Rockville, MD. They specialize in curly hair and they’re one of the best curly salons in the area. They’ve been featured in different articles which is how I came across them and why I chose to go there even though it’s an hour 1/2 drive for me.
Anyway, back to today’s products…I still wanted to share them because anyone with natural/curly hair knows the struggle of trying to find the right products, the right order in which to use them and the everyday struggle of trying to keep frizz to a minimum. I’ve found a couple different things from different brands that work for me but these particular ones are the cheapest(curly hair products are expensive), work the best and cut the amount of time I spend doing my hair in half.
First, I wash my hair with true shampoo by made beautiful. I follow up with their co-wash conditioner and detangle before rinsing it out. Both the shampoo and conditioner contain shea, honey, coconut and mango. This conditioner makes it super easy to detangle, I don’t even have to use a comb or brush, I just use my fingers. As soon as I get out of the shower and with my hair still soaking wet, I add ECO Natural Conditioning, Curling N’ Styling Cocktail. Then I wrap my hair in a cotton T-shirt while I finish getting ready and by the time I’m done it’s about 65-70% dry. I just let it air dry from there. In case anyone is wondering why I dry my hair with a shirt…regular towels cause frizz in curly hair so I either use a 100% cotton T-shirt or a microfiber towel.
I love the Eco Curling and Conditioning Cocktail! It acts as a gel making my curls last longer without making them crunchy or hard and it conditions really well. It contains olive oil and shea butter. My hair stays moisturized longer and my curls are soft, fluffy and bouncy.

After about 3-4 days I spritz my hair with the Hair Milk Refresher Spray by Carol’s Daughter, that adds moisture and brings my curls back to life for another two days or so.
