Top Tips To Know…

Kinky hair needs special attention. It’s the driest of the hair types, it’s fine, fragile and prone to breakage. And that includes your edges too. So what’s causing edge trauma? Mahisha Dellinger, CEO of CURLS and star of OWN’s “Mind Your Business with Mahisha” sounds off about edges:

You may be wearing protective styles too often. A great wig or braided style can be a huge time save but the over use of these styles can cause inflammation of your hair follicles resulting in breakage.

Tight braids are a big no! Summer cornrows may last a while but the constant and aggressive hair pulling can cause your scalp to be inflamed, especially around the perimeter of your head.

Wearing tight bonnets can cause friction. Your satin bonnet or scarf can do more harm than good, especially when sleeping. The tight-banded cap can cause frequent friction on your edges, which can lead to breakage.

So what to do to get our edges back? To make sure your kinks are under control, your flyaways are frizz-free and your edges are sleek and healthy, try the new Cashmere & Caviar Hair Growth Pomade from CURLS. This nourishing styling product is sculpting pomade that helps control, smooth and tame frizzy edges while promoting the growth of edges. Formulated with certified organic cashmere, caviar and champagne extract, these ingredients help leave hair luxuriously softer and stronger while producing healthy sebum which will help prevent hair from drying out and breaking off.
