We all love a great curl/kink/coil definition along with sheen.
and this is what the maximum hydration gives us based on the name it is.
You want to do the maximum hydration method when your hair is in an extremely dry state. Therefore, you will be able to see the true effects of the technique.
Here Is How To Make The Maximum Hydration Work For You:
- CLARIFY WITH A SULFATE FREE CLEANSER
The first is to step clarify especially if your hair has been bogged down with product from the week. You want to use a particularly good cleanser that will remove all of the product build up, excess oil and sebum. Most people will use an apple cider vinegar rinse however the smell is pungent. Some can bear through it while others cannot. If you cannot then you should use a cleanser that is sulfate-free like our Tailored Beauty Coconut Crème Shampoo.
Our coconut crème shampoo is derived from natural sources and never contains parabens or sulfates. Infused with coconut oil which cleanses and strengthens hair without leaving it feeling stripped. Formulated with aloe vera juice that moisturizes and restores hair's natural pH
- Massage the shampoo into your scalp using the pads of your finger.
- Then rinse thoroughly while ensuring that the rest of the shampoo runs across the remainder of the hair shaft to cleanse it.
- DEEP CONDITION WITH DEEP PENETRATING MASQUE
And that deep conditioner that you should be using is our Tailored Beauty Moisture Penetrating Deep Conditioner Treatment. Another one of best sellers that has been raved about in our community. Our Moisture Penetrating Deep Conditioner Treatment contains a premium herbal blend of Fenugreek Powder and Bhringaraj Oil. This conditioner has the right amount of slip and nutrients to reduce breakage, restore damaged strands, and aid in length retention.
And as such, it meets the purpose of the maximum hydration method. You should let it sit on your hair for 15 minutes as per the instructions. Also, you want to ensure that the products spreads to each hair strand so you can use a wide tooth comb, Denman brush as well as the praying hands method. In addition, it aids in removing any knots/tangles and defines your curls.
- Then rinse thoroughly to prepare for the next step
3. CLEANSE & DEFINE WITH BENTONITE CLAY
The next step is to cleanse again. Why? Because of the magnificent benefits of bentonite which aids in stripping your hair of all the product, oils, and other elements that are preventing your hair from thriving. In addition, the excess moisture from the deep conditioner that your hair didn't absorb is removed as well to not way down your curls.
We all hate the mess and stress of doing DIY Clay mixtures so we did it for you with our Tailored Beauty Clay Detox Shampoo Bar. It is formulated with bentonite and shikakai clay to remove the toxins from the hair preventing your curls from popping. Massage the shampoo into the scalp, at the roots, and along the hair shaft. You do not have to worry about your hair feeling stripped as it does not leave your curls feeling dry.
- Then rinse thoroughly to prepare for the next step and you should be starting to see your curls popping!
4. APPLY LEAVE IN CONDITIONER TO WET HAIR
Before you step out to air dry, moisturize again using a leave in conditioner. Leave in conditioner is better absorbed into the hair shaft when you're in the shower as your hair is already soaked with water. Try it, it works.
Our Moisture Penetrating Leave-In Conditioner Treatment contains a premium herbal blend of Gotu Kola Extract and Neem Oi. Both of which are able to restore moisture. As well as, awakens the hair so you can see your true coils, curls or kinks. This will keep your hair moisturized while under the gel.
5. APPLY A GEL TO DEFINE AND HOLD CURLS
And finally we style! Usually when doing the maximum hydration method - a wash and go is done to truly see the curls popping. So, with our Tailored Beauty Perfect Coils Curling Jelly, your wash and go will look, feel, and smell good. Your curls will be spoiled with a natural blend of Honey, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Rosemary, Horsetail and other fine botanical ingredients.
Apply the jelly into your hair in sections. Then to take it up a notch individually curl each clumps of curls which is called the finger coiling method. It is time consuming, but the results are worth it. Or, you can define your curls using a denman brush or tangle teezer.
And voila! Maximum hydrated curls!
