“How do I maintain my curls?”
is usually the first question newly-permed ladies ask.
Using the right products is key. Luckily, there are plenty of affordable products for curly hair to make maintaining your curls super easy.
Within the first month, you should use a range of curl-friendly products to stabilize the curls. Here are some of the products we’ve picked out for you! It’s not an exhaustive list by far, but it should be enough to get you started.

**1. Davines / Moisturizing Curl Enhancing Serum 2. L’oreal / EverCreme Deep Nourishing Masque
3. Bumble and Bumble / Curl Reactivating Mist 4. Tresemmé / Curl Hydration Shampoo.
After a month, you can go back to your usual scalp care shampoos, but you should still use a curl protecting leave-in/styling product while your hair’s damp (and before blow-drying), like the Davines Curl Enhancing Serum above. Use a hair masque once a week for deep conditioning and do remember to leave it in for at least 3-5 minutes!
DO comb through your hair once when wet to prevent tangles.
When dry, DON’T use a brush. Instead, use a scrunching motion with your hands to give your curls a lift. This should help keep your curls bouncy and shinier between salon visits. [/superquote]
