Black men’s hair is already naturally curly and comes in many different types. However, the coils can sometimes be very tight. That means products have a harder time reaching to the root, resulting in dry, itchy scalp, flakes, and difficulty managing or styling the hair. But you don't have to add harsh chemicals to the mix to get looser-looking, hydrated curls. It starts with the right hair care and styling regimen. And that's why we created our Natural Curls Kit at Frederick Benjamin. That way, guys with curly hair can have a great looking style without doing any permanent damage to their hair and scalp.
A Good Shampoo and Conditioner
The key to looser-looking curls is moisture. You need a shampoo that gives a deep clean without stripping your hair of the moisture it needs. That's why we've infused our shampoo with active natural oils like spearmint, clove and nettle to restore moisture to the hair and most important the scalp.
The same thing goes with our conditioner, a refreshing combination of natural oils with a creamy texture that soothes the scalp and softens the hair, naturally. When you start your day with these, you make your hair easier to manage in addition to the light, fresh scent.
After washing and conditioning, keep the hair damp and rub in a moisturizer like our Daily Hydrator. It's a great way to add an extra layer of defense to your hair and scalp and keep moisture sealed in throughout the day.
You can also follow up with our Sleek Water pomade to mold your hair into your desired look, without the weight and residue of traditional grease. Our water-based formula makes it easy to apply the pomade to the hair and even easier to rinse it away at the end of the day.
We always recommend a sponge brush to add in some texture to your look. Just apply it lightly in a circular motion over parts of the hair you want to curl.
Some hair styles may take a bit longer to achieve at different lengths but a sponge brush like our Twists sponge makes the technique easy and saves you time in front of the mirror.
