Recommended Techniques and Curly Hair Advice

Owner of Crimson Hair Studio and Master Stylist Jen is looking out underrepresented short, curly haircuts:  “Short, curly hair often gets overlooked when searching for products.  I work with your curl to create texture and movement in your cut. By removing weight throughout the interior of your cut, curly styles will easily fall into place with a curl-focused shampoo & conditioner, then your curl type and how much you want your curls defined will determine the product.
Danielle, our curly haired queen, says:  It’s hard to keep curls looking lush, especially in the humid Summer; it’s a long road from your hair’s roots to ends, preventing all that natural goodness your scalp produces to moisturize your curls. Killer.Curls is a product problem solver in this department, and is good for using a diffuser or air drying.


Use a liberal amount of product on really thick hair
Use dry shampoo in the root area between shampoos:  Kevin.Murphy Fresh.Hair and Living Proof Ph.D
Apply product to wet hair and towel blot, pushing product in and helping reduce frizz

Wash everyday
Excessively touch curls after they are dry
Go longer than 6-8 weeks between trims
