We’ll admit, super curly hair isn’t exactly low-maintenance. The upside? It’s incredibly versatile. You can go from letting your curls flow freely, to a twist-out, to a top-knot, all in one week! Even better, there’s one DevaCurl product that works for any look you want to try: SuperCream Coconut Curl Styler. This silicone-free, paraben-free multitasker delivers much-needed moisture and definition, too. “SuperCream is a great emollient,” says Cal Ellis, Curl Master and Educator for DevaCurl. “It offers light hold and ultra-moisture for tight curls.” Here are four easy ways to work this must-have into your natural hair routine.
Do a wash-and-go
Cleanse and condition your curls with No-Poo and One Condition Decadence, and leave a bit of conditioner in your hair after detangling during the rinsing process. The reason: “You’ll need less product when you’re styling,” Cal says. Experiment with how much to leave in until you figure out what works best for your curls. To prevent shrinkage, a common issue for those with tighter curls, Shari Harbinger, Co-Founder of the DevaCurl Academy, recommends applying SuperCream to very wet curls in a downward gliding motion. “Finger-comb to elongate the hair while drenching it with SuperCream’s moisturizing formula,” she says. Once every strand is covered, arrange your hair how you want it then air-dry or sit under a dryer. To avoid frizz, be sure to keep your hands off your curls until they’re dry.
Tame rogue curls
One of the best things about SuperCream is that you can use it on wet or dry hair—thank you, beauty gods! If your curls tend to lose their definition or get a little frizzy in between wash-days, a bit of this creamy, coconutty stuff can freshen them up. “Rub SuperCream onto your fingers and gently glide them along the surface of your curls to add extra moisture and definition wherever you need it,” Shari says. She also suggests using the cream to control frizz and flyaways along the hairline.
