Make sure that you are using a good shampoo and conditioner like the Moroccanoil Curl Enhancing Shampoo and Conditioner, which will maintain the strength and health of your hair as well as moisturize it. The Moroccanoil Curl Cleansing Conditioner is an amazing product that can be used in place of your daily shampoo and conditioner, it will leave more moisture in your hair without stronger cleansing.

How can you refresh curly hair without washing it?
On days where you don’t have time to wash or you just washed the day before and you don’t want to dry your hair out from over washing it, try Moroccanoil Curl Re-energizing Spray, it is very light so as to not weigh the hair down, while still having the ability to smooth the strands so they can look shiny and not frizzy. Spray your hair and twirl the individual strands around your finger to refresh your curls.


If I want to straighten my hair, what is the best way to protect my curls?
Make sure that you towel blot your hair and let it air dry as much as possible, if you go into soaking wet hair you will spend twice the amount of time and heat on your strands, also be sure to use Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection in your hair to keep your strands healthy and Moroccanoil Blow-dry Concentrate to cut you drying time.

What are some tips for hair to hold a curl in high humidity, heat wave, rain, etc.?
After you are done styling, be sure NOT TO TOUCH your hair, when humidity hits the hair there is a small amount of moisture that will sit on your strands, when you touch your hair or run your fingers through it, it spreads the moisture which can result in excess frizz.
