Moreover, these will help you learn and choose better products for your wavy & curly hair.

This is the result of today’s routine below-

Sorry for the strange expression, I quickly took this during a break at work! 😀

Products Used in today’s Indian Curly Hair Routine:

1.  The Bodyshop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo


The Bodyshop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo

This is a gentle shampoo that I have been using for years now, whenever my mood strikes. It cleanses my scalp well and additionally does not dry out my length.

You can check out my review here: The Bodyshop Rainforest Moisture Shampoo For Dry Hair Review

Price: Rs.600- Rs.725

2. Oriflame Nature Secrets Conditioner for Dry and Damaged Hair Wheat & Coconut 

Oriflame Nature Secrets Conditioner for Dry and Damaged Hair Wheat & Coconut

Super moisturising and CG Friendly, many of my readers use this & told me it’s great for their budget, especially if they are still studying in school or college.

Please remember that I combed after applying this conditioner- first with my fingers and then a wide-toothed comb.

Combing after conditioner instead of combing it dry is ESSENTIAL for curly hair. This will reduce frizz and dryness as combing helps distribute the product uniformly throughout your hair.

Do remember that this does have parabens so if you’re against using products that have them, this can be skipped.

Price: Rs. 349

2. Red Rawkyn Clay Hair Mask

Red Rawkyn Clay Hair Mask

This is an intensely moisturizing deep conditioning treatment formulated with red clay.

5.The Body Shop Wheatgrass Fixing Gel

The Body Shop Wheatgrass Fixing Gel

This has been growing on me, more out of necessity than love!

My ecostyler gel is almost finished & I found it better than other cheaper CG friendly gels available in India. It has slight hold. I apply it the same way I apply my ecostyler gel! You can read about that in the post below:

Hair dried and diffused right before leaving for work

Techniques Used

1.  Combing With Denman BrushDenman Brush

My FAVOURITE styling tool as of yet.

This creates several tiny clumps instead of a few fat clumps. I use this on my hair after applying Cantu Curl Activator and again after I applied The Bodyshop Wheatgrass gel.

2. Diffused on Low Heat with Curly Co Diffuser

The Curly Co Collapsible Hair Diffuser

Instead of air drying, I usually use a diffuser which is an attachment like the one pictured above that reduces frizz.

This diffuser doesn’t fit on my phillips hair dryer but I make it work by holding it in place with one hand. If you want to learn how to diffuse your waves  & curls & get more volume at the crown- check out my guide to diffusing below!

3. SOTC with Innisfree Camellia Essential Head Massage Oil

Camellia essential head massage oil

If you use a gel, once your hair dries it will have a gel cast & feel crunchy.

In other words, to make my curls soft to touch again and increase volume, I SOTCScrunch out the crunch with an oil.

I don’t use serums as they have silicones. You can watch how I do it below!



Some of the links above are affiliate links which means if you buy the product using that link, I earn a tiny commission. This helps me keep the website running and afford new curly hair products to try out for you guys. 🙂

Also, products that might work for my hair might not work for you and vice versa! Please remember this is my personal experience of the product & your hair can behave differently.

And done! I hope this series helps you learn about my products I use in my routine & find it easy to get them yourself. 😊 Until next post!
