YOUR CURL FAQs. ANSWERED.

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE GOT CURLY HAIR?
A great way to test if your hair has a curl or wave to it is simply letting it air-dry. Look out for if your hair has a slight s-shape to it, or twists and turns.

 

WHAT INGREDIENTS SHOULD I LOOK OUT FOR IN MY HAIRCARE?
Curls can be more prone to dryness, so look out for moisturising ingredients that will leave your curls hydrated and frizz-free. Some of our favourite hero ingredients include Shea Butter, Fermented Rice Water, Pro Vitamin B5 and Jackfruit extract, which will leave your curls soft, healthy, and defined.

 

SHOULD I BE USING A HAIR MASK?
Curly and coily hair can be more fragile and prone to brittleness, so using a hair mask will help keep your hair strong and repair any breakage. Get 10x stronger hair and repair up to 50% of split ends in 6 uses with Deeper Love. For the same strengthening benefits with added healthy volume, choose Bigger Love.

 

IS COOL CURLS CURLY GIRL METHOD™ APPROVED?
Yes! Cool Curls is Curly Girl Method™ approved, meaning you can confidently enhance your curls, coils and waves without stripping or weighing down your hair.

 

HOW CAN I PROTECT MY CURLS WHILST SLEEPING?
Curls can become frizzy, flat, tangled and dry as you sleep. Protect your curls by using a silk covering to enable your hair to move and glide naturally, preventing breakage and reducing frizz. A silk hair pillowcase will work the same way for extra protection.

 

HOW CAN I GET SHINIER CURLS?
Curly hair reflects light differently than straight hair. To boost shine, treat your hair to an intensely nourishing treatment, and smooth through Love Me Do for a photo-flash finish.

 

HOW SHOULD I DRY MY CURLY HAIR?
To dry curly hair, gently blot excess water with a microfibre towel to avoid frizz and damaging your strands. Applying a leave-in conditioner or nourishing balm while your hair is still damp with help to lock in moisture and prevent frizz. Let your curls air dry or use a diffuser on low heat to enhance curls without causing frizz. Avoid towel-drying vigorously, as it can disrupt your curl pattern and cause frizz.

 

HOW CAN I DEFINE MY CURLS?
Styling and conditioning as part of your curl-care ritual or on-the-go couldn’t be easier with our Happy Endings Nourishing Balm. Starting with freshly washed hair, massage 1–2 pumps of Happy Endings over the palms and backs of your hands and work into the full length of your hair. Twist your curls before scrunching and letting them drop, then diffuse, blow-dry or air-dry as normal. Watch Yasmin from Team McKnight get perfect bouncy curls, every time.

 

DO I NEED A LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER?
A leave-in conditioner like Light Nourish is a great way to lock in nourishment throughout your day, keeping your hair smooth and manageable. Gently dry your hair with a microfibre towel and smooth in the conditioner, using a wide-tooth comb to detangle. For extra curl and wave definition, scrunch the ends of your hair towards your head and then allow them to drop.

 

HOW CAN I REVIVE MY CURLS?
Curly hair can often become frizzy or loose it's definition in between wash days. For a quick curl, coil or wave revival, spritz in Cool Curls Revive & Refresh Mist through your hair and gently scrunch to bring your texture back, or twist around your finger to enhance the curl. For tighter coils, Cool Curls can be used to style your twist- or braid-outs by simply misting evenly through hair and styling. Allow hair to dry before unravelling for a softer, elongated look without the frizz.
