In the 1960s the Afro was really popular, as the evolution of Pop music gave way to R&B, Hip Hop and Neo Soul, hairstyles for curly heads have evolved from relaxers and afros to locs, twists, wash and goes, braids, weaves, and extensions. Protective styles are popular for women with curly hair. Women and Men all over the world with curly hair have a similar struggle. They have to fight frizz, undefined curls, breakage. The other challenge for professionals with curly hair is finding a style that is professional. Being able to find a style that works and is professional for curly hair is exactly why Angela Fields founded CurlyCoilyTresses®️ natural hair products for curly hair.
One day she was at the salon getting her hair done, and she was getting it relaxed. However the hair stylist dropped some relaxer on her face. The relaxer began to burn her face, and it required treatment for a chemical burn and this was a very traumatic experience. The burn was so traumatizing that Angela began to do research on alternative hair treatments. She made it her mission to find out how to style her curls without chemicals.
Her research was interesting because she has 3 different curl textures on her head. 3C in the areas surrounding her face, 4C in the crown, 4B in the back. Her personal curl texture caused her to experiment with products to achieve the ideal style. She wanted to eliminate frizz and define her curls. As she read scientific papers, articles, books, and more, Angela realized that natural ingredients in their purest form was the way to go. When she finished her research and settled on her curly hair product line formulation, she was able to exceed the European Standard for Ingredients for a personal care product. A study by the Environmental Working Group found that more than 70% of products marketed for Black hair contain dangerous ingredients, compared to 40% of hair products made for the "general public".
Your health and safety are important and is why CurlyCoilyTresses®️ products exceed the European standard, the most restrictive standard governing cosmetic ingredients. The European standard bans 1400 ingredients, while the US standard only bans 14.
Here are 4 ways to Eliminate Frizz and Love Your Hair:
The steam from the shower is ideal. Once your hair is shampooed and the hair cuticle is open, this is the time to apply moisture in 2 steps. You have a conditioner that you wash out, and then the final conditioner that you leave in. The Nourish Treatment Deep Conditioner is perfect to stay on your hair for 20 minutes while you shave and soap down. After you have finished soaping down and shaving this is the best time to rinse the Nourish Treatment Deep Conditioner out. Next once you have rinsed all product off of your body and out of your curls this is the time to apply your Enrich Moisturizer Leave In Conditioner to water saturated hair.

Protect Your Curls While You Sleep
The curly head man or woman should sleep with a Satin Bonnet, Satin Do Rag, and / or Satin Pillowcase. Satin is ideal for protecting curly hair because it eliminates the friction that cotton and other fabrics stress on delicate, curly hair. In addition to protecting delicate curly hair, satin bonnets, do rags, and pillow cases also do not remove moisture from the hair as fast. When you use Satin you are loving your hair.
Get Your Hair Trimmed On A Regular Basis
When you trim your ends, you eliminate split ends. Split ends snag on other strands and cause tangles. These tangles cause undue pressure on the strands of your hair and cause breakage. This is why you have to eliminate the split ends so your hair will grow longer. Yes, it is counter intuitive, but it is true. Trim your hair on a regular basis to get rid of split ends, and your hair will grow. You must eliminate the roughness and friction that split ends cause. Split ends unchecked can make your hair look very frizzy and unhealthy, and cause breakage.
Detangle With Care
Take your time, and use your fingers to detangle your hair or a detangling brush that is especially designed to decrease pressure on each strand as you are removing tangles. When you trim your hair, detangling with your fingers goes faster. We recommend that you do this while your Nourish Treatment Deep Conditioner or Enrich Moisturizer Leave In Conditioner by CurlyCoilyTresses®️ is on your hair in the shower.
