Do you have any hair care tips for people living in super humid areas?
When it’s humid outside, hair gets frizzy because it is looking for moisture in the air. To combat frizz in the humidity, you can add more moisture to the hair and seal it in with gel or mousse. I love the Oribe Curl Gelée for Shine & Definition because it’s lightweight but has a bit of hold so that curls will stay defined, not frizzy, especially in humid climates.
What’s your best method of preserving braid out/twist outs for multiple days?
The best way to preserve a braid out for a few days is to tie your hair up in a loose ponytail (also known as a “pineapple”) and wrap your hair in a silk bonnet at night to reduce friction in your sleep. If you have shorter hair that won’t fit into a ponytail, you can moisturize it with the Oribe Priming Lotion Leave-In Conditioning Detangler and wrap it in a silk or satin bonnet at night.
Which regimen is good for low-porosity hair?
Low-porosity hair has a hard time absorbing products and moisture, so you should look for lightweight products that will easily absorb into the hair.
What are ways for textured hair to grow faster?
Healthy hair starts at the scalp. It’s important to take care of your scalp like you would take care of your skin. Wash hair at least once a week with Oribe Shampoo for Moisture & Control to ensure you’re removing product buildup and cleansing the scalp. Follow with the Oribe Moisture & Control Deep Treatment Masque once a week (if possible) to minimize tangles and damage. The masque is packed with coconut and almond oils to quench thirsty curls and prevent breakage while repairing damage. Hair is left silky, hydrated and healthier than ever.
What are good treatments for damaged hair? Any to protect it from the sun?
I love the Oribe Moisture & Control Deep Treatment Masque on damaged hair. The masque is packed with coconut and almond oils to quench thirsty curls and prevent breakage while repairing damage. Hair is left silky, hydrated and healthier than ever. It’s important to follow with a prep or styling product that contains UV protection to protect hair from the sun. The entire Oribe line contains ingredients that offer UV protection.
