Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and though quarantine may have us showing our love for those closest to us a little differently this year, that doesn’t mean our hair has to be left out of the equation. While you may not be heading out to a super fancy dinner with your boo or taking a Galentine’s Day trip to an exotic island, you can still set your curls up for success with a few Instagram worthy styles. Here are five looks that you’re sure to fall in love with this Valentine’s Day.
Whether you’re rocking a tapered cut or are finally at your goal length, rod sets—both flexi rods and perm rods—can create beautiful, luscious curls for anyone. Though it’s possible to use the Frizz Patrol mousse to achieve this style, you can also get bouncy, moisture-filled results using the Curl La La, too.
You may have to stay in this Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean your hair can’t show out! After washing with our Oh So Clean — Moisturizing & Softening Shampoo and following up with the In Control — Moisturizing & Softening Conditioner, you can twist up your hair in the desired sizings (small or chunky twists) until they dry completely. After you unravel, you’ll be left with gorgeous free-flowing hair that will complement any outfit you’ve coordinated for the sweet night. Already wearing a twist out and just need a way to spice things up? There are plenty of ways you can revamp your old twist out to take your Valentine’s Day style up a notch.
Half up/half down wash and go
Most natural hair cuties know that achieving a wash and go is anything but actually washing and going. That doesn’t mean, however, that you can’t produce a cute look from it. If you’re looking for a way to keep your hair out of your face (and a way to cut the time down a bit!) though, you can opt for a half up/half down version of the wash and go. Need a little help detangling before defining? The Knot On My Watch — Instant Detangling Therapy can help you with that. And, don’t forget to add in the Quench — Moisture Intensive Leave-In Conditioner to keep your hair from drying out.
Curly bang with scarf
Not interested in styling your entire head this Valentine’s Day, but still want to look cute? Just accessorize! Create yourself a curly bang by defining your natural texture or adding in rollers or rod sets and tie the rest of your hair in a cute scarf to hide it. Curl La La will work great for this, too!
Bantu knot out
Bantu knots are a sort of hit or miss style for most, but you may get the love you deserve from the look this time around. Instead of wearing the actual knots as your style of choice, however, opt to unravel each knot—after they are completely dry— to be left with a head full of beautiful curls. For best results, prep your (stretched) hair with the Curl La La custard before placing in the bantu knots. And, don’t forget to use any of the Natural Growth Oil Blends to coat your hands before taking the knots down.
