Advice from Monica

“Are you a 1, 4 or just somewhere in between? I’m talking hair types. Knowing your hair type is the key to understanding what your hair will & won’t do. 

There is no such thing as a “better” hair type. Every type has its pros & cons. According to each individual’s hair type, styling abilities will vary as much as the products you should choose to create, hydrate & add shine to your hair. 

The GOOD NEWS news is that, whether naturally straight or extremely tight, there are styling techniques to temporally change the pattern to create beautiful hair styles. 

U R Curly products are created with these concerns in mind. Starting with the Soya Shampoo and ending with the Curl Enhancers, every need is met and will help to achieve the desired look.”

“No matter the size or type of braid being woven, use the U R Curly Curl Enhancers to help protect the hair while the style is being created. Both the loose and tight curl enhancers can be used to lubricate and moisturize the hair – making it easier to glide through the hair and speeding up the braiding process. 

Also, the ingredients found within the curl enhancers will help protect the hair from the preservatives found within most of the natural or synthetic extensions used while braiding. Using the enhancers routinely while the hair is braided will not only keep the styling looking its best, but will also help to keep the hair moisturized – reducing the amount of breakage and shedding that usually occurs when braids are removed.”

“Whether you are natural or chemically relaxed, product knowledge is essential. Products that are enriched with natural ingredients such as Abyssinian oil, Aloe, Quinoa & Tea Tree, serve as buffers & strengthens weak areas of the hair shaft.

These ingredients not only give a vibrant & lasting shine to your various styles but work to condition & protect your hair from the natural elements.”
