Deep Conditioning for Moisture Infusion
Deep treatment masks are one of the best ways to infuse moisture into the hair shaft. Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Mask works wonders to repair, restore, and protect your hair from harsh elements like the wind.
A deep moisture treatment will also help to keep your curls frizz-free during the rain and humidity. Follow these tips for optimum deep conditioning:
- Use heat with your deep Using heat is an excellent way to infuse moisture and nutrients into the hair shaft, especially if you have low-porosity hair. Heat will allow the cuticles to open and receive the goodness. Sitting under an overhead dryer is one of the best ways to heat your deep conditioning treatment. If you don’t have a hooded dryer, you can use a plastic shower cap and a towel on top to lend your body heat.
- Use a natural product. Natural curls can quickly become dried out and damaged by chemicals, so always aim to use a product with natural ingredients. Blueberry Bliss Reparative Hair Mask contains aloe vera, chamomile, and certified organic blueberry fruit extract to soften, detangle, and moisturize your curls.
- Use cold water to rinse. It sounds horrendous, but turning the faucet to cold water as you’re rinsing away product will help to retain some of the conditioner. How does this work? The cuticles close with cold elements, just like they open with heat. It’s a great way to hang on to some of the conditioner inside the shaft. The result is shinier, frizz-free hair.
Styling for Moisture Retention
Curly hair loves moisture. Layering your products is a good way to style and protect the hair through the windy winter days. The layers will guard against breakage, and having several layers to coat the strand is better protection than mixing your products and applying them all at once.
Here’s how to use your Curls products with the LOC Method:
Liquid. H20 is the first step in the LOC method, and water from your shower works the best to hydrate your hair. Adding a product like Blueberry Bliss Reparative Leave-In Conditioner will help to detangle the hair during this stage. You should also use this water-based product during the week to hydrate and refresh your curls.
Oil. Natural oils like avocado and coconut work to seal in moisture. They add another layer of effective protection and help to guard against the wind and friction. Other excellent oils include almond, jojoba, and shea butter.
Cream. Now, you’re ready to style. Choose a product that helps you set the hair, and that has enough natural ingredients to nourish and replenish your strands. Use the Blueberry & Coconut Hair Milk for a lighter setting cream, and the Blueberry Bliss Twist N Shout for something heavier. Both are excellent for styling, protecting and nourishing the hair.

The blueberries in Curl’s Blueberry Bliss line are loaded with potent vitamins and nutrients that will protect strands and speed hair growth during the chilly months.
