Michelle's Hair Regime
"My hair regime is entirely dependent on how much time I have. I would always begin by using the Imbue Curl Liberating Shampoo - I love the feel of it. It is sulphate and paraben free so my hair never feels dry after shampooing, just moisturised. As a curly girl myself, I know that some curl products can cause build-up and lead to a flaky scalp, which is why a great cleanser is so important."
"If I'm in a hurry, I will use the Curl Respecting Conditioner next. With plenty of slip, it's great for detangling and makes my hair so shiny. Even after rinsing, it leaves a glossy, hydrating coat of moisture that feels silky and soft."
"If I have more time, I'll also use the Curl Restoring Mask. I leave it on for a good twenty minutes to half an hour - sometimes overnight – then use the conditioner afterwards. The mask leaves my hair super moist, infused with a hydrating blend of Coconut, Capuacu and Shea Butter."
"Next, I would always use a microfibre towel to blot any surplus water from my hair, leaving it a little bit damp. Regular towels can dry out hair and cause frizz, so it’s best to opt for an old T-shirt or invest in a microfibre towel."
4. Crème Gel
"I would then go in with two little scoops of the Crème Gel and scrunch the product into my hair upside down. Depending on how I want my curls to look that day, I will use the ‘Praying Hand’ method by smoothing it and pressing down onto my hair – this will ensure big bouncy curls."
"If I want an extra bit of shine or separation, I would use a tiny drop of the Curl Worshipping Oil. I warm the oil through my hands first and then scrunch through the curls – it works beautifully.
Then I would leave my hair to dry naturally. I find with Imbue it dries really quickly as the products are so lightweight, rather than heavy on my hair. This leaves it really, really bouncy - it’s amazing."
"My regime will usually last for 2 or 3 days, 4 if I'm lucky, before my hair needs to be washed again. Then, I will use the Curl Energising Hydration Serumto re-energise my curls. I love to use the leave-in conditioner to dampen my hair and then apply the serum over that to get my curls popping again.
I really don’t need any magic tricks because Imbue does all the heavy lifting for me. I am so proud of each and every product, as we worked so tirelessly on them for such a long time. Continual testing, tweaking formulations, testing and testing again meant Imbue was tailored to bring curls out in all their glory."
