Summer Vibes with CurlyEllie: Essential Hair Care Tips for Curly Hair

Summer is here, and with it comes the promise of sun-soaked days, beach waves, and endless fun. But as much as we love the summer vibes, the season can be tough on our curls. At CurlyEllie, we believe in celebrating and nurturing your beautiful curls all year round, especially during the hot, sunny months. Here are our top tips to keep your curls looking their best this summer, along with a special touch of sustainability to make your holidays even brighter.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

Summer heat can leave your curls feeling parched and frizzy. To keep your curls hydrated, make sure to use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Our CurlyEllie Eco Pouch Gentle Shampoo and nourishing Conditioner are packed with natural ingredients like aloe vera and quinoa to replenish moisture and add shine.

Pro Tip: Rinse your hair with cool water after conditioning to help seal the cuticle and lock in moisture. It’s a refreshing way to beat the heat!

Shield Your Curls from the Sun

Just like your skin, your hair needs protection from the sun's harmful rays. Before heading out, spritz your curls with a UV protectant or wear a stylish hat or scarf to shield them from direct sunlight. Our CurlyEllie Intensive Hair Mask Eco Pouch also offers 500ml of light protection while keeping your curls soft and manageable.

Pro Tip: Create a chic summer look by tying a colourful scarf around your head. It’s a fun way to accessorize and protect your hair simultaneously.

Embrace the Beachy Waves

Summer is the perfect time to embrace your natural texture and go for those effortless beachy waves. After washing your hair, apply our CurlyEllie Curl Defining Leave-In Eco Pouch to damp curls, scrunch, and let air dry. This will enhance your natural curl pattern and give you that laid-back, beachy look, without it being crunchy or hard.

Pro Tip: For extra volume and definition, try the "pineapple" method while you sleep. Gather your hair into a loose, high ponytail on top of your head. This helps maintain your curls and adds extra bounce in the morning.

Deep Condition Weekly

Summer activities like swimming in the pool or the ocean can strip your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and brittle. Combat this by deep conditioning your curls once a week. Our CurlyEllie 500ml  Intensive Treatment Mask Eco Pouch  is perfect for giving your hair the deep hydration it needs all summer without needing to restock whilst abroad.

Pro Tip: Apply the mask to damp hair, cover with a shower cap, and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. For an extra treat, wrap a warm towel around your head to help the mask penetrate deeper.

Travel Light with Eco-Friendly Packaging

Summer is all about spontaneous trips and travel adventures. Whether you’re heading to the beach, the mountains, or a weekend getaway, packing light is essential. At CurlyEllie, we’re excited to re-introduce our Eco Pouches, which are perfect for on-the-go hair care. These pouches are not only convenient but also environmentally friendly, helping you reduce your plastic footprint while enjoying your summer escapades.

Why Our Eco Pouches Rock:

  • Compact and Travel-Friendly: Easy to slip into your beach bag or suitcase without taking up much space.
  • Sustainable Choice: Made from recyclable materials, our eco pouches help you care for your curls and the planet.
  • Keeps Products Fresh: Designed to maintain the integrity of our natural and organic formulations, ensuring your hair gets the best care even on the go.

Pro Tip: Refill your eco pouches from our full-size bottles at home. It’s a great way to stay eco-conscious while keeping your curls happy and healthy.
