When it comes to textured hair, there is a delicate balance between its styling and care

As we know, hot tools can be damaging. Their excessive use leads to ruined curl patterns, dryness, split ends and premature color fade.

Allowing our locs a little breather in between styling sessions is always a healthy choice. In fact, a hair respite is the perfect time to give heatless drying a try.

Heat-free styling is all about being kind to your hair. Choosing the right products and adopting safe air-drying methods resuscitates lifeless strands, amps up curls and locks in moisture.
