3 Tips For A Quick Summer Wash Day Routine

UPDATING YOUR SUMMER WASH DAY ROUTINE

The summer sun is finally here which means it’s time to start changing our wash day routines. This may include using lighter products, skipping steps you may have added during the colder months to give your hair that added bit of extra moisture, or just creating a quicker routine so you can spend more time enjoying the warm weather. Along with our 3 tips, the Flora & Curl product range is a great start for creating a quick and easy wash day routine. 
TIP 1: PRE POO THE NIGHT BEFORE
Pre pooing the night before can cut wash day in half as your best oils get to work by infusing your strands while you sleep. This is one easy hair hack you can do as you don’t have to wait around on wash day for your oils to work. This effective step will prevent your hair from becoming stripped, add more moisture to your tresses and help with the detangling process. Have you used our African Citrus Superfruit Hair Oil yet? It has 10 potent plant oils that nourish split ends, tame frizzy hair, provide heat protection (great for any heated conditions), repair damaged hair while adding shine.
TIP 2: USING A MOISTURISING SHAMPOO OR CO-WASH

The idea of a quick wash day is to have our products do all the work for us, that way we don't have to do any extra steps to add moisture back into our hair. As heat can be drying on our tresses, it is a great idea to use a sulphate free shampoo that is moisturising and gives energy back to your dry curls in this summer heat. Something like our African Citrus Superfruit Shampoo will do the trick. Removing product build up, it is made without silicones or sulfates and restores the balance of the scalp, all without striping our strands.

Finding the right Co-Wash to cleanse you hair can also sometimes cut out the idea of using a conditioner afterwards. This can be used on your main wash day or as part of your mid week wash to refresh your curls.

TIP 3: HOT OILING AND CONDITIONING/DEEP CONDITIONING AT THE SAME TIME

This is a big life saver for anyone who has a limited amount of time on wash day or just wants to kill two birds with one stone. Whether sitting under a heat cap, hooded steamer or sitting in the sunshine, hot oiling and conditioning/deep conditioning will not only bring back any moisture lost from shampooing, but will also make your hair shiner, less dense, stronger and improve the overall health of your hair while the oil will deeply condition your scalp. Who said this combination can be time consuming.

Perfect for removing build up!

I use a lot of quite heavy products on my hair so suffer from build up. Once a month I use this product to deeply cleanse my curls, it clears all traces of buildup whilst keeping my hair super hydrated. I would recommend it to anyone! My advice when using this product: follow the instructions on the bottle exactly, and maybe add a little apple cider vinegar if you’re looking for an extra deep cleanse.

A MUST FOR CURLS!

My hair loved this cleanser. But I will use it at most once a month, I think that's enough. Absolutely rinse it very well, do a deep conditioning afterwards and maintain.

This leave-in DELIVERS!

I've been using their Rose & Honey Milk Leave in for about 2 weeks now and couldn't wait to review it! My favourite kind of products are the ones that say NO to all the nasty synthetic ingredients but still DELIVER! This Leave-in does just that! What a powerful combo of botanical products that work incredibly well together. Minimal protein (I count one) for the sensitive and plenty humectants and sealants for amazing moisture! It spreads well and is super light weight and easy to absorb. I hate leave-ins that sit on my fine hair so this is perfect for my curls! It smells like roses, but not that fake rose smell... like ACTUAL ROSES So natural!!! Ive used it for about 4 washes and every time my curls have come out soft and moisturised and held up for a few days in this blistering heat!! .
Absolutely recommend this one.

Great oil for my hair

Great oil for my hair and scalp. Does exactly what it says!
