The 10 Commandments to Preserving Your Curls
Thy shall have a great leave in conditioner to smooth down the cuticle to reduce frizz.
Thy shall stop shampooing daily, curly, kinky hair require daily hydration and shampooing daily strips all the natural oils your hair needs to stay soft and resilient.
Thy shall make your own personalized cocktail. To make a great hydrating cocktail add SheaMoisture C&H Styling Milk with 10 drops of SM Shea Oil with 3oz of distilled water in a spray bottle.

Condition, condition and condition again. Weekly conditioning treatment with SheaMoisture SuperFruit Hydrating Masque will reduce frizz by feeding and closing the cuticle.
Thy shall not brush your hair when dry. Always put a lubricating oil or a leave in conditioner before brushing curly/coily hair.
