For some, this time of year is rooted in gifting, mistletoe and comfy sweaters. For others, it signifies the need to repair, rejuvenate, and guard your hair against the elements. Having textured hair can sometimes be a curse around the holidays but it doesn’t have to be. Learn a few key tips and tricks to keep your curls feeling and looking their best for the Holiday season to come!
The key to creating a beautiful hairstyle lies in the health of your hair. Before you begin to dream up your new style start of with a deep conditioner (at least once a week) to lay the groundwork for a flawless finish. We suggest Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Masque for finer textured curls and Macadamia Professional Ultra Rich Moisture Masque for thicker textures.
Fresh out of the shower, we love to apply Macadamia Professional Nourishing Moisture Oil Treatment, concentrating on the mid-lengths to ends, to prep hair before any heat is applied. If you are blow drying your hair straight before styling we also suggest adding in Macadamia Professional Blow Dry Lotion or Macadamia Professional Activating Curl Cream for a curly finish.
If you decided on a straighter style, spritz your hair with Macadamia Professional Anti-Humidity Finishing Spray to lock in your style and protect from humidity. To add some holiday flair, try creating a side swept braid close to the root - a braid with a beautiful blowout is a style that slays this season.
If you prefer creating styles from your natural texture add Macadamia Professional Sea Salt Spray to damp hair and allow fully dry. This will add grit to your hair, keep your styles in place, and allow you to play with your curls without creating excess frizz. Although we love braids these season, braids and natural texture can get tangled and messy. To create a similar look, try twisting! You can twist tendrils from each side and secure at the side or in the back with bobby pins for an effortless hold.
