The Bowl Method

Who knew incorporating a bowl in your wash day routine could help create hydrated, defined and frizz free curls?

The simplest and equally effective method is simply using a bowl of water to rinse off your conditioner. Re-dipping your hair into the bowl of conditioner and water, multiple times, helps create amazing curl clumps and forces more water into the hair for extra hydration.

Here's our step by step guide that shows how it's done...

Step 1:

First of all, wash your hair as usual with the All Curl Cleanser. Lather it up and then rinse.

Step 2:

Fill a large bowl with warm water.

Step 3:

Apply the All Curl Conditioner. Rake it through from root to tip.

Step 4:

Detangle and comb the All Curl Conditioner through the hair using a wide tooth comb.

Step 5:

Dip your curls into the bowl of water.

Step 6:

Scrunch out the excess water and let this fall back into the bowl.

Step 7:

Repeat the dip and scrunch process 2-3 more times to create smooth and hydrated curl clumps.

Step 8:

Step 9:

Scrunch dry with a Curly Towel.

Step 10:

Step 11:

Diffuse or Air Dry and see amazing results.

Seems lengthy? The extra steps will make a huge difference, and will add about 10 mins to your usual wash day routine.

How do hormones affect curly hair? We get asked this question a lot, so thought we'd answer in our TikTok video Q&A series.

"Yes, hormones massively affect your hair. So puberty, having a baby, menopause, all three of those things can really change your hair. I'm dealing with much more wavy hair these days after having a baby 18 months ago. So I think I'm a good person to answer your questions because I can give you some good wavy hair tips."
