Aveda Be Curly

We are obsessed with the Be Curly line from Aveda. 

Not only is it free from all the junk that will strip and dry out your hair, but it also smells incredible. Be Curly products have a lovely citrus aroma of organic lemon, geranium, bergamot, and orange. 

You won’t find any parabens, mineral oils, formaldehyde or synthetic fragrances in any of Aveda’s products. 

By far, the biggest challenge for anyone with curly locks is maintaining moisture. Curly hair tends to be naturally dry. Lack of moisture can lead to dull, frizzy hair plagued by breakage and split ends. 

Be Curly products can help grow your mane to its full potential by cleansing, moisturizing, and sealing your hair’s cuticle to lock in the moisture.

First things first: you need a shampoo that’s going to gently cleanse your curls, not strip your scalp of its natural beneficial oils. 

The Be Curly shampoo is sulfate-free and specially formulated without harsh cleaning agents. 

It’s fortified with wheat protein and aloe that expands when hair is wet and shrinks when dry, helping to tame frizz and boost shine.

The Be Curly conditioner formula is designed to moisturize your hair for up to three days with certified organic babassu oil. Babassu oil is harvested from the Amazonian babassu palm and is an excellent all-natural hair oil. 

Aveda Be Curly Style-prep

If you love wearing your curls loose and letting your mane fly free, you’ll want to make sure your locks are well-protected. 

The style-prep treatment helps to detangle, moisturize, and seal the hair cuticle to prevent frizz all day with organic baobab and babassu oil. 

To apply this product, put a small amount in your hands and run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. 

You can also use style-prep to reactivate your curl pattern on non-shampoo days. Just spray hair or dampen it slightly and re-apply.

Curl enhancer

Getting glossy, defined curls is the holy grail for many folks with wavy, curly, or coily hair. 

The Curl Enhancer cream works incredibly well to define and intensify your curl or wave pattern. Its effects are heightened if used in conjunction with the style-prep product. 

Apply the cream generously to damp hair, then let air dry. 

If you want super-defined curls, try blow-drying your hair with a diffuser attachment that gently dries your hair and reduces heat damage. 

Curl enhancing hairspray

Many hairsprays leave your locks stiff and crunchy, which is the opposite of what you want for naturally curly hair. 

Be Curly hairspray is formulated to have a strong but flexible hold that adds shine and control to your ‘do. It has corn-derived conditioning agents that leave your hair soft and touchable. 

If you are headed to a special event or simply want your hairstyle to last all day, this hairspray is a great finishing touch. 

Intensive detangling masque

Treat your hair and scalp to a seriously conditioning and detangling cream that will leave your locks as smooth as butter. Formulated with babassu oil and shea butter, this masque packs a serious punch. 

For best results, apply the masque to your hair and pay special attention to your ends and mid-lengths. Leave it on for a minimum of five minutes (you can always leave it in longer, if you like). Rinse and follow with an application of your everyday conditioner. 

Aveda Be Curly Co-wash

For those with the driest hair, even shampoo for curls might be too much. Be Curly co-wash (or conditioning wash) is designed to be a low-lather, super-conditioning cleanser that you use just like shampoo. 

To use this product, pour a generous amount of co-wash on the mid-length of your hair, then massage it up towards your roots and scalp. Make sure your hair is completely saturated, then rinse it out and follow with your favorite conditioner.
