How To Manage Wavy/Curly Hair

The common Wavy Hair and Curly Hair Dilemma.

“OMG your curls are amazing! I WISH my hair would do that.”

Those who have them don’t want them, and those who want them don’t have them!

There are two options for those with wavy or curly hair. You either embrace it and wear it natural or you opt to have your hair straight and eliminate the curl. Or, a little bit of both.

In this week’s edition of #HairTalk, we are going to discuss the effective ways you can:

  • Embrace Your Curly/Wavy Hair
  • Straighten Your Curly/Wavy Hair

Embrace Your Curly/Wavy Hair 

Embracing the curls starts with just letting them be. Not straightening, smoothing out with the blowdryer or anything like that. To dry with a hairdryer, a good tip is to use a diffuser

Diffusers is a round plastic attachment that fits onto the nozzle of your hairdryer. They are usually included with hairdryers but are also sold on their own.

Diffusers spread the air from the hair dryer over a wider area, like having the hairdryer with no nozzle, but in a controlled manner. You use them by placing a section of hair onto the diffuser and pressing it up against your scalp as you blow dry on low speed and low heat. (You can put on high heat to dry quicker but make sure not to dry out the curl too much) 


A diffuser is great for curly hair by keeping the curls' natural shape. A normal hairdryer that directs the air in one direction blows the curls out of shape, and becoming frizzy.

Enhancing Curly/Wavy Hair

Using the right products will really help enhance curly/wavy hair!

Natural Curls

Use a diffuser as explained above or towel dry and allow to form naturally (if you have quite curly hair)

Loose Curls

RINGLET by Redken

Straighten Your Curly/Wavy Hair

The Typical way to go about this would be a blow-wave or straightening the hair. However, this is temporary and will only last until your next wash!

However, something more permanent is out there! Now you’re 1st thought is probably the typical chemical straightening service. This is definitely an option; however, the use of harsh chemicals can bring up complications to the hair’s condition as well as any allergies to the chemicals you may have. These services also alter the hair’s structure and compound to get the permanent result. Not to mention how long the process takes!   

There IS another, more permanent option compared to just the basic blow-wave or straighten, without any harsh chemicals.

That is a Keratin Smoothing Treatment. Keratin smoothing treatment’s infuse Keratin (an important hair protein) into the hair, making it smoother and healthier.

Here at Tomars Berwick, we use the Brasil Cacau Keratin Smoothing Treatment.

Brasil Cacau is a thermal reconstruction treatment that aligns the hair cuticles, resulting in the hair being infused with incredible shine, smoothness, enhanced strength and condition while being frizz-free and humidity resistant.


With Brasil Cacau, results are instant and there is no need to wait 72 hours like some other treatments and straightening services. As soon as you leave the salon, you are free to wash your hair, wear a pony tail, use clips and pins, go to the gym or swim without your results being altered (when using the aftercare products we discuss below)

Your hair will be straighter, smoother, frizz-free, and extremely radiant. The treatment provides instant manageability - a smoother hair cuticle means smoother, straighter frizz-free hair, a healthier shine and reduced styling time.



How Does It Work?

Brasil Cacau uses Keratin as it’s main ingredient for smoothing and straightening the hair. Keratin is a protein found in the hair, nails, and skin.

It also uses sugarcane carbohydrates and Cysteine which synergise with the hair's natural Keratin filling, sealing and smoothing the cuticle. The combination of these ingredients and the Amazon Acai berry rich in antioxidants, Omega 3 & 6 gives Brasil Cacau the power to reconstruct the hair and give its results. 

These ingredients paired with heat, and compression all react with the keratin in the hair, making the hair more relaxed.


The great thing about the Brasil Cacau Smoothing Treatment is that there are no harsh chemicals used, in particular there is no formaldehyde present in Brasil Cacau Products, which is known to have side effects and, in some cases, cause cancer.

Lock In Your Results:

After having the In-Salon Smoothing treatment done, it is extremely important to use the Brasil Cacau at home products to ensure your results stay for as long as possible. These products are designed to maintain and extend the longevity of the treatment.

With the use of the after-care products to maintain the treatment, results will last around 3-6 months, depending on the hair as well as ensuring after-care products are being used.


Anti-Frizz Shampoo: Brasil Cacau Anti Frizz Shampoo provides an extremely moisturizing effect that helps to keep the results of the treatment created by the hairdresser.

It is a perfect shampoo for dry, damaged, frizzy and unruly hair. A must have for Keratin-treated hair. This amazing and highly-effective shampoo restores your hair from within, eliminates frizz, adds shine and softness. Your hair will look much silkier and shinier!




Anti-Frizz Conditioner: Brasil Cacau Anti-Frizz Conditioner is perfect for daily use. This anti-frizz conditioner will smooth your hair, eliminate frizz, and add brilliant shine. Contains Cocoa, Panthenol and Keratin. The conditioner will regenerate the inner and outer hair shaft, promoting a smoother and shinier look while reducing frizz.





Pre-Styling Leave in Primer: Brasil Cacau Leave-In Primer is formulated with anti-frizz and anti-humidity properties. It will protect your hair from heat damage and leave it healthy, silky and frizz-free.




Hydrating Hair Complex (Mask): A hydrating treatment mask that smooths and restructures the hair shaft. It works to nourish hair, reducing frizz and split ends.

These products have the ability to provide Anti-Frizz and Smoothing results just by themselves as well, even without the In-Salon treatment.
