We’ve always been envious of Lemons for Days’ writer Jasmin’s gorgeous curly hair, so when we launched our Super leaves™ shampoos and conditioners for textured hair, it was a no-brainer to invite her on our blog so she could share her hair care routine with us. As a mom of three and a health and wellness fan, Jasmin prioritizes natural products and knows that what you put on your skin (and your scalp!) is just as important as what you eat! Excited to learn more about her beautiful tresses and her impression on ATTITUDE's new line?
How do you feel about your curly hair? Do you like having this hair texture? If so, has this always been the case?
I get a lot of compliments on my hair (which I’m so very grateful for, thank you!) but I have to say that I’ve always found my hair to be a bit frustrating. It’s very thick, curly, and unpredictable. For such a long time I shied away from wearing my hair down naturally because it was so hard to style and tame and it made me feel uncomfortable and self-conscious. I felt like people were staring at the unruly nest on top of my head! Needless to say, I have straightened my hair waaaay too much in the past which has caused some heat damage.
Can you guide us through your hair care routine for curly hair and give us your styling tips?
When it comes to a hair routine, I like to keep it simple; clean my hair using the ATTITUDE Super leaves™ Curl Moisturizing Shampoo and hydrate my hair by leaving the ATTITUDE Super leaves™ Curl Moisturizing Conditioner on for ten minutes in the shower. Once rinsed and out of the shower, I like to style my hair with a natural curl cream and add a serum to the ends. I prefer to let my hair aird ry because I’m now very careful with the amount of heat I put on my hair (I blow dry my hair straight maybe once every two weeks). And because I want to moisturize my hair as much as possible, I do a hair mask twice a week too!
As for hair accessories, I’m a pretty simple gal. I do love a pretty side clip during the day but as soon as dinner time hits, I’m sporting a mom-bun with my favourite scrunchie! Quick tip: I actually find that sleeping with my hair piled on top of my head in a loose scrunchie at night (aka the pineapple method) helps to carry my curls a bit further and can sport them for 2 or 3 days before washing again. In between washes, I am careful to never use a brush or comb and to keep my curls hydrated and shiny with a serum. On really dry days (Calgary is the worst for this), I will use a dab of ATTITUDE conditioner on the ends of my hair.
How do you like the new ATTITUDE line for curly hair?
I was looking for new hair products to try and because we had already used ATTITUDE Littles leaves™ line for the kids, I knew it was a brand I could trust. I wanted to try their line of curly hair products but I had no idea where to start. I went on their blog and read their article about hair types and found out that I have Type 2 curls. I then went on their website and saw the suggested products that would work best for my hair and help me with definition, moisture and frizz. With three different types of shampoo & conditioner, rest assured that no matter your curl type ATTITUDE has a product suited to your curls.
If you’re like me and have no idea what products are best for your hair (or even what type of curls, you have) I highly suggest checking out ATTITUDE’s new line of curly shampoos and conditioners and the many amazing products they have for the whole family. Oh, and did I mention the smell of their products? My goodness… it’s AMAZING!
You can also feel good about purchasing any products from ATTITUDE because with each item sold, they plant a tree by working in collaboration with two major non-profit organizations specializing in reforestation: Eden Reforestation Projects and One tree Planted.
