how to define and style your curls, coils, and kinks

Welcome to our curly hair routine series!

Curls, coils, and kinks au naturel can sometimes be hard to navigate. Textured hair needs 4 main things to thrive: styling, strengthening, plenty of hydration, and scalp-care. We've curated 4 hair routines that are sure to give your strands a healthy dose of TLC and get you ready for hot curl summer (see what we did there?).

To kick off this routine series, we're starting with the first curly and coily regimen that will help with styling those tresses -- so without further ado, we give you our define and style hair routine!

why do curls, coils, and kinks need styling products?

Curls, kinks + coils typically need styling products to achieve defined, long-lasting bouncy curls. Styling products moisturize, encourage natural curl formation, and protect against pesky humidity and frizz.

products you'll need

  • curl corps defining cream: Define your curls and coils with this moisturizing styling cream. The lightweight, luxe formula softly coaxes curls into their natural shape, bringing out the best of every hair texture, resulting in touchable, bouncy curls that last.
  • curl corps enhancing gel: This weather-protecting, curl defining gel seals in moisture and results in long-lasting, crunch-free curls that are ready for anything!

the routine

  • Apply curl corps defining cream to damp curls from roots to ends to moisturize, smooth, and define by coaxing curls into their natural formation.
  • Follow with curl corps enhancing gel from roots to ends to lock in moisture, protect against frizz, and provide a light hold. Diffuse or let air dry.

Keep your eyes peeled for our next curly hair routine installment! Here's a hint: It'll be sooner than you think...
