Ditch The Styling Tools and Embrace Your Natural Curls!

The weather is warm and summer is still in full swing. For all the natural curly haired girls out there its the time of year to embrace those curls and use the warm summer air to your hair’s advantage and put your styling tools away.

Summertime and naturally curly hair means lots of dryness. After showering I used  KMS California CURLUP leave-in conditioner, just a small amount and my hair was left soft and very easy to comb through. I have very fine hair so found I needed to use just a tiny drop to hydrate my hair.

KMS CURLUP leave-in conditioner
extra moisture for nourished curls

Lightweight formula nourishes curls for a soft, shiny finish with less frizz.
Work through wet or towel-dried hair. Diffuse or air dry.

I used KMS California CURLUP perfecting lotion on my damp hair and scrunched up into my curls then let my hair air dry. My curls were soft, shiny and very hydrated.  This left a much softer less tight curl then some of my other products. I loved that it left a loose, wavy curl and how soft my hair was. Definitely will be using this combo to beat the heat and styling tools for the rest of this heat wave.
