Kiss frizzy, hard-to-tame hair good-bye. The mega-moisture humectants in CURL LA LA give long-lasting bounce to curls, and shine and definition to spirals and coils. Define your signature look by adding a little or a lot. Whatever your style, rest assure that it will be well-moisturized and soft to the touch, without caking or flaking. Use it as often as needed on wet or dry hair.
Apply Curl La La generously to wet or dry hair and use a diffuser while scrunching style into place, or allowing to air dry. For Elongated, Bouncy Curls or Spirals, apply to wet or dry hair, gently stretching curls with your fingers as you style, using a diffuser, hooded dryer or allowing to air dry. For Coils, Braid-Outs and Twists, apply a small amount to sections of wet or dry hair, roller/rod set, braid or twist each section. Sit under a hooded dryer or allow to completely air dry, then release each section, finger styling into place. Keep hair clean and healthy by shampooing, as needed, with OH SO CLEAN! Moisturizing and Softening Shampoo.
YES! Aunt Jackies can be used on any hair type or texture, including chemically treated, relaxed, texturized and color-treated hair.
Natural hair tends to stay dry. Sulfates, mostly found in shampoos (that help create lather), can have a stripping effect on natural hair, removing hair's essential oils and contributing to the problem of dryness. Many sulfate-free shampoos don't lather well, causing the user to think that the hair isn't really clean. Aunt Jackies products are sulfate-free, but our shampoo is lather-rich and thoroughly cleanses hair.
Co-Wash, or “Conditioning Wash, is a term used to describe shampooing with a conditioner instead of shampoo. Most conditioners have some cleansing properties and will provide a mild cleansing. However, hair and scalp must be rinsed very well to remove impurities before Co-Washing. This method is recommended for really tight, kinky hair that shrivels up and recoils easily. It aids in keeping the hair softer, longer and stretching natural texture. Co-Washing is not recommended for fine, limp textures, as it will make hair feel weighed down. Finally, Co-Washing is not recommended for hair and scalp that has a lot of build up, as it will not cleanse as thoroughly as shampoo.
Products without preservatives easily run the risk of forming bacteria, spoiling, and have extremely short shelf lives. While Aunt Jackie's contains NO PARABENS (a chemical class of preservatives), the products do contain eco-friendly preservatives to help sustain shelf life. These preservatives are not harmful to scalp, hair or skin, or the environment.
While many products marketed for natural hair claim to have “all-natural, “organic or “good-for-you ingredients, many make false claims and have labels that are not FDA or EU compliant. These compliance issues are updated frequently, requiring manufacturers to list certain raw materials on the label. If a label is compliant, it will likely be lengthy. Aunt Jackie's products are committed to label compliance, therefore we list everything required for both U.S. and European standards. These compliance standards are in place for your safety, informing you of things like potential allergens and other helpful information. This level of compliance makes our ingredient legend a bit long, but we respect your health and the safety of our products.
