Aunt Jackie's Curls & Coils

Check out a new brand of hair care products called AuntJackie’s Curls & Coils. The line has products for different textures of hair – Curly, Wavy and Kinky!  As well has having a great site that includes tons of information and a Naturalista Club, the packaging for their products are colorful, fun and inviting.

Here is more about their brand: “Get ready to put some spring in your coils! Aunt Jackie's solutions provide manageability and softness to all hard-to-manage hair textures. Coily and Kinky hair most commonly have "Z" shaped coil patterns. These tighter textures absorb moisture like a sponge, causing the hair to look and feel chronically dry. Further, attempting to train tight texture by excessive tugging, combing and brushing can easily lead to breakage and damage. The best way to effectively manage coily and kinky hair is to keep it clean, well moisturized, conditioned and soft.  Thank goodness Aunt Jackie's has exactly what you need.”

Follow Aunt Jackie's regimen, below, to care for super soft coils, afros, puffs, braid outs and twists:

STEP 1: CLEANSE              
Coily and Kinky-textured hair should be shampooed, as needed, but no less than every 2-3 weeks, as build up on the scalp can prevent healthy growth.  Use SULFATE-FREE, Oh So Clean! Moisturizing and Softening Shampoo to thoroughly cleanse, while replenishing with essential moisture and oils. Don't vigorously shampoo. Work into a lather by gently massaging scalp to lift impurities, then rinse and repeat, washing scalp and hair. 

Regardless of your texture, the triple action of Aunt Jackie's, In Control, helps to soften, moisturize and deep condition. Use it as a general-use conditioner or as a reconstructive treatment. For extremely tight and kinky textures, use In Control Moisturizing and Softening Conditioner as a Co-Wash (Conditioning Wash) to assist in softening the hair, even more, while cleansing. To use it as a Co-Wash, thoroughly wet hair, gently massaging the scalp to help lift impurities.  Then, coat hair with In Control and massage hair and scalp in a gentle shampooing motion.  Rinse from hair, then reapply.  Follow directions below for general use, or as a reconstructive treatment. For general-use,after shampooing, apply to clean, towel-dried hair, coating from roots to ends.  Leave on for 3 minutes and thoroughly rinse.  As a reconstructive, deep conditioning treatment, apply generously, then cover hair with a plastic cap. Sit under a warm hooded dryer for 10 minutes before thoroughly rinsing.

STEP 3: DETANGLE          
Coily, Kinky textures are a huge challenge to comb. That is, until now! Knot On My Watch Instant Detangling Therapy makes combing easier.  Watch the comb glide through hard-to-manage hair, while ultra-hydrating humectants restore a healthy moisture balance. Apply generously to hair, concentrating more on difficult areas.  Always use a wide tooth comb and never force the comb through tangles.  Work through tangled areas by taking sections of the hair, gently combing the ends then working your way upward to the roots. 

Choose your signature style and then lock it in using Curl La La Defining Curl Custard.  Because it won't flake or cake, you can use it on wet or slightly damp hair. To create coils, twists or braid outs, apply a small amount to sections of damp hair, while twisting, braiding, or setting on rollers or rods.   Sit under a hooded dryer on a warm setting (higher setting if hair is freshly shampooed), or allow to completely air dry. Once dry, release hair, finger-styling into desired  style.  For Afros and Puffs, generously massage Curl La La into hair and scalp. Style and adorn as desired.

AUNT JACKIE'S TIP: During styling, apply just a dab of Curl La La to fingertips as you release twisted, braided or roller-set hair.  This will give your coily look added sheen and softness. Kinkier textures tend to absorb moisture and look dry, So, finish your style with a touch of oil.  Aunt Jackie's favorite is Africa's Best Instant Herbal Oil.  The natural blend of oils leaves a brilliant sheen, while providing added softness.
