4 Ways To Use Bouclème's Curl Defining Gel

Posted by Aliya Riyaad at

Hi guys! Today I’m going to show you just how versatile the Bouclème Curl Defining Gel can be with 4 cool ways that I personally use it!   1. CURL ENHANCER FOR FLAWLESS WASH & GOS The Curl Defining Gel is the final product I use for my Wash-and-Go hairstyle. After washing and conditioning, I apply the Curl Cream and then take a few pumps of gel and smooth it over my hair whilst it’s still quite wet using the praying hands method.

Posted by Beulah Davina at

Twistouts are a great way to create definition, reduce shrinkage and they tend to help you retain more moisture than wash and gos. The only problem with twistouts is that they can be difficult to get right.

Hydration VS Moisture

What do they *actually* mean? By Leal Alexander @curlygallal    If you’re thinking.. “Wait: this is a ~thing~? I didn’t know about this… WHY DIDN’T I KNOW ABOUT THIS?! You’re not alone, it’s a thing! According to my research, many people in the curly community are baffled about the difference between the two [as I once was]. As curlies, especially in the social media realm ,we see the terms “hydrated” and “moisturised” thrown around, often being used interchangeably as one in the same.

Curl Care During Pregnancy

Posted by Aliya Riyaad at

The miracle of having a baby can bring about some rather…interesting hair changes. A lot of these changes are down to pregnancy hormones. I really struggled for the first 3 months of being pregnant because not only had it got way drier, the curls had dropped towards the ends. I wasn’t about to give up and reach for the straightener though; it was time to change my routine slightly to adapt to this change. Deep conditioning became my best friend. Having already been a fan of Bouclème's Intensive Moisture Treatment, I was about to take it to the next level....
