DEFINE CURLS AND ENHANCE HAIR’S NATURAL BEAUTY

Curly hair is very trendy, and the curly look —from an afro to the most subtle waves—will be one of the most in demand looks of the year.

Lakmé's curly method is a technique developed for hair care and styling that defines curls and enhances their natural beauty.

WHY DOES CURLY HAIR NEED SPECIAL CARE?

Curly and wavy hair requires very demanding care.  Because of its structural shape, its texture tends to be drier, less hydrated, and lacking in nourishment. The hair fiber in curly hair does not distribute sweat and sebum in the same way as it does in straight hair.

Hydration and nourishment are therefore the fundamental basis of this curl-enhancing technique, regardless of whether we are talking about natural curls or a perm. Hair with the right levels of hydration and nourishment will have a defined, elastic, and shiny curl.

THE THREE PHASES OF THE CURLY METHOD

1. Restoring the scalp’s balance and repairing the hair fiber

We recommend a detox treatment, as this will remove impurities, restore the hydrolipidic layer, and facilitate both more extensive hydration and natural nourishment.

2. Maintaining hair’s hydration and nourishment levels

To maintain optimal hydration and nourishment levels, we recommend using products that don’t contain any substances that aid hydration loss, form a barrier, or prevent the hair from absorbing water and lipids from the scalp.

For example, we recommend using sulfate-free shampoos, and avoiding silicone oils or products that contain alcohol, etc.

3. Protecting the hair

It is very important to ensure that external factors do not prevent you from achieving the best result possible; damage may be caused by a lack of proper UV protection, free radicals, or heating tools.

STEP BY STEP

Step 1: Diagnosis – Hair Hygiene

Carry out an initial diagnosis and find out if there is excess sweat or sebum on the scalp or if these elements are not fulfilling their protective function for the hair fiber. To do this, assess your hair by feeling it and looking at it to see if it is dry, matte, and frizzy. If your hair demonstrates these three conditions, the quality of your hydrolipidic layer needs work.

Step 2: Reconstructing the Hair Fiber

If necessary, apply a treatment to restore your hair fiber’s quality. To achieve maximum reconstruction in a single session, repeat steps 1 and 2 up to three times.

Step 3: Hydration and Nourishment

If you have completed step 2, you won’t need to apply a conditioner or treatment; if not, it’s time to give your hair hydration and nourishment.

Step 4: Maintenance

For the first three weeks, only wash your hair once a week. It’s normal for clients to notice a “dirtier” scalp in the days following a wash; this means that the treatment is working.

Wash hair with sulfate-free shampoo or with a co-wash* method. Shampoo should only be applied to the scalp via a light massage with your fingertips. The mid-lengths and ends will be cleaned when rinsing.

Step 5: hairstyle

To give your curls greater definition, we recommend using products that are free of silicone oils that form a hydrophobic layer on the hair and prevent it from absorbing its own natural moisture. TEKNIA Frizz Control products are a good ally.
