How to take care of curly hair

Anyone with curly hair knows that it requires love, care, and maintenance. Enter Sol de Janeiro’s hair care heroes. We know the ingredients and curly hair routines that will bring out your best hair always. So, put all your other products aside and dive into our definitive guide to curls, coils, and waves.

Choose the right comb and brush

Curly hair is particularly prone to dryness and breakage. This means combs and brushes must be handled (and chosen) with intention. Instead of brushing dry strands, comb hair in the shower before rinsing out conditioner. Our SOL Yellow Wide Tooth Comb is gentle enough to detangle wet curls and evenly coats strands with conditioner (because moisture, moisture, moisture!).

Those with coiled hair––or tighter curls––may want to go brushless. Apply a leave-in conditioner and rake fingers through to preserve curl patterns.

Choose the right shampoo and conditioner

Look for a shampoo and conditioner for curly hair. These formulas have moisturizing ingredients like oils, butters, and keratins––all of which can be found in our Brazilian Joia™ Shampoo and Conditioner. We’ve infused this duo with three types of nourishing oils (coconut, Brazil nut, and Buriti fruit), plus cupuaçu butter, and plant-based keratin. Our sulfate-free formulas repair and hydrate to keep dryness at bay.

Use hair oils

Each morning, and throughout the day, strategic primping keeps curls looking fresh. The easiest way to bring them back to life is with a hair oil for curly hair. A few pumps of our Brazilian Glossy™ Nourishing Hair Oil is the pick-me-up you need––no wash required. Rake through strands to fight frizz and create mirror-like shine.

Make your hair split ends-proof

Keep strands smooth from top to bottom with the best products for curly hair. This means detangling with a leave-in conditioner and wide-tooth comb to prevent breakage. Find a leave-in conditioner packed with benefits to make sure it’s working overtime. Brazilian Joia™ Milky Leave-In Conditione not only detangles, but also protects against heat (hello, diffusers!), repairs damage and reduces frizz. It’s your curly hair dynamo.

Use a nourishing treatment

A hydrating treatment will give you smooth, shiny strands in almost no time. Apply a hair mask like Triple Brazilian Butter ™ Hair Repair Treatment in the shower and leave on for ten minutes. We suggest putting on a shower cap or towel to keep in heat and open the cuticle, ensuring the treatment really penetrates your hair.
