Give your locks a little love this summer.
Work with, not against, your natural hair texture this summer.
The path to the perfectly formed curls you deserve begins in the shower. “One of the biggest challenges with curly hair is that the cuticle is irregular,” says Colin Ford, artistic and education director for Kérastase Paris. “There are varying levels of thickness along the hair shaft; some parts are weak, while others are stronger.” This is why curls are prone to breakage and major frizz. “Normal shampooing aggravates the situation,” explains Ford. Enter Kérastase’s Cleansing Conditioner, part of the new Curl Idéal line, designed so that curls form more evenly. The creamy low-lather formula gently cleanses without allowing hair fibres to rub together, keeping curls intact. A Pro-Keratin complex in the formula doses hair with protein and ceramide, strengthening the cuticle, while elastin gives hair spring. To add definition post-wash, Ford recommends using a cream formula for curls in need of weight and mousse for extra bounce.
