Summer Fro Vibes & Festival hair

Summer Fro Vibes & Festival hair

How to: create your best Festival Fro ever!

As the summer sun stays out to play for longer… and maybe you’ve booked your festival tickets? For the summer adventures.  

Here are my top tips to prep your hair for its best Festival Fro ever:

Wash and Steam your hair a day or so before. Freshly washed and steamed hair will have movement not to mention Va Va Voom Volume

Steaming creates a magical inflating effect on your hair- it really gives an Afro or twist-out LIFE!  

After washing and steaming, style with the following:

Use a Fro-cocktail of products like a leave-in conditioner like our Honey rain juice and Natural hair butter/ Twist & Curls pudding + Quench to create immense softness, volume, bounce and shine all festival long.

Style tip:  Add hair chains and faux flower chains to the fro for a really tropical and relaxed vibe, the bolder the better! Bantu knots are also a cool look for a day out in the park at a festival if a fro will make you too hot!

 

Swim Safe Tips: Do not let your hair stop the fun in the waves this summer!

If you are worried about your tresses, newly natural, rocking kinky twists or even relaxed! Then take note.

Chlorine does not react well with Afro or curly hair textures, especially if your hair is coloured. So in order to prevent swimming damage from the pool water or dryness via the sea, add a barrier of protection to your hair under your swim cap.

The oil and water truck!

As oil and water does not mix, soak your hair at least 2 hours before or overnight in hair loving golden Olive oil. Extra virgin is best! This will protect strands by filling them up with oil so the water literally just glides off!

In addition add a conditioner to your hair before swimming, again to add a barrier of protective coating to give an anti-chlorine effect.

 


Protective style Know how:  Loc loving or Braided beauty?

If your about to depart on your annual island vacation, and you have decided to pack your hair away in a protective style so your only focus is that tan!! Listen up!!

Whether your style choice are  faux locs or maybe it’s just Rapunzel length braids or twists, one thing to remember is to treat the hair under there!

Adding hair to your natural hair will weaken and dry out your hair, so be sure to deep condition and treat with protein prior to the install. It’s vital to ensure your hair is in tip-top condition before-hand!!

Whilst the braids/locs are in, do spritz your hair with a good water based leave-in conditioner. Our Honey rain juice is perfect here! Also prevent the itchies by applying a little oil to the scalp and co-washing the hair and scalp at least 1 x a week.  This will also prevent dry hair under there!  If you happen to get sand in your hair although great look for your Instagram pics, not so great for your hair, so do rinse it out at the end of the day!

My son has really thick hair and this is the only product that works on his hair and makes it easier for me to detangle.

Love love love it!!!

I have been looking for the right products for my daughter’s hair. I’m not very familiar with textured curly hair and all my education of how to care for it was from YouTube tutorials and advices from other women. So I’m so happy to find this oil. I simply follow what’s on the tin and it makes wonders! Definitely buying again!

"Absolutely amazing!"

I bought this product for my daughters. As predicted my phone was jammed with inbound voice notes praising not just the quality of the packaging (it's very eco friendly), but also the award winning hair care product, Quench anti breakage creme. I had been trying to persuade her to try the product for sometime but she claimed her own homemade natural products will suffice. Hear her now: "Dad! Dad! ...This product is the business!! My hair loves these products!". I'm waiting for the video she's making... coming soon!
Thanks a million to Root2tip haircare products.

Amazing product smells great light and not too greasy would definitely use again 😁👍

Review

Products arrived in a timely fashion and well packaged.
The actual product itself is great - my son is mixed heritage with very coarse coils. The honey rain juice detangler and heavens hair milk are both light and not sticky and moistures my sons hair with no excess residue.
The packaging of the products isn’t great - the detangler bottle broke when trying to open it and I had to tip the product into a spray bottle to use it and prevent spillage.
The heavenly milk bottle was only filled up three quarters of the way - product had not been filled to the top which is a real shame. I like to support small independent businesses but feel as customers we should be supported by the business to do that. Maybe I was just unlucky with my order and it wouldn’t stop me ordering again 😁.
I am unable to review the shampoo and conditioner as we haven’t tried them yet. Shampoo does smell amazing on first sniff!

Fir some reason I can’t edit the stars - I would rate this as 3-4 due to packaging issues.
