Dew Point?

Wed, 04/11/2018 - 10:46 -- Carmen

Hi Curlies!

It's been a minute, huh? Or "eh" as Jess would say :)

Hope your curls are poppin' and your day is beautiful! Today we're going to talk a bit about dew point. Now some of you are saying "Yes! Finally some information on dew point". And some of you are saying "What?!?!? Another thing to worry about on this Curly Hair Journey of ours!".

As we get better and better at dialing in healthy hair, we discover more and more factors that can play a role in getting good hair days more often than not. Now, what in the world is the dew point and how do we navigate this new territory? To put it simply, the dew point is the temperature at which water droplets (dew) start to form from the moisture in the air. But wait - there's more! Atmospheric pressure and humidity also play a role in this, and it can get a little complicated. But we got this far in the Curly Goal Method by being hair scientists, why stop now?

Why should we care about the dew point, you ask?

Well, many of us use products that contain humectants, like glycerin, that absorb or retain moisture. Sometimes this is a great thing, and sometimes it can lead to the frizz of a lifetime. Many times, we use the exact same products and techniques but get wildy different results from day to day. We blame it on the humidity but dew point is often the culprit. In ideal conditions, glycerin helps keep bouncy, moisturized curls but in the wrong conditions breakage and frizz can occur. The "ideal" conditions have a lot to do with the dew point.

My Hair Routine

Fri, 09/29/2017 - 18:15 -- Jess

Hi Curlies!

A few people asked me recently on Instagram what products I use on my hair. I gave them the exact products in my answer, but of course the whole routine is a little long to reply in an IG comment. :) The routine is posted on my website in the Curly Care section, but I thought it might be a good idea to post it on the blog too to make it easier to find. :) 

Jess' Curly Hair Routine

I'll take this opportunity to say this - the whole routine from start to finish only takes about 45 minutes including shower time, it just LOOKS long all typed out. :)

I color my hair with Ion Color Brilliance color every 6-8 weeks. I've used many brands over the years and I prefer this one to get a nice, vibrant red that doesn't fade.  I use2 parts Light Copper Blonde and 1 part Intense Red.  (My natural color was a strawberry blonde so this just takes it all the way to red.)  A few times a week I put in a dime sized puddle of Oil Blend For Softer Hair and leave it in overnight and once a week I use my Deep Conditioning Treatment to provide extra moisture. I get little trims every 3-4 months to take care of any dead ends and re-shape it. If I don’t, my hair turns triangular pretty fast.  :)

Interview With Curly Hair Specialist Cala Renee

Tue, 09/20/2016 - 09:27 -- Jess

We have some fabulous curly hair specialists that carry Jessicurl in their salons, and we love to feature interviews with them here on the blog. Today I'm happy to introduce you to Cala Renee of Beverly, MA. 

Cala Rene

How long have you been in business?

I opened in November 1989.

Where are you located?

The salon is located at 309 Rantoul St, Beverly, MA 01915

What made you go into the hair business?

My first reason was I was not enjoying college at all and my second reason was I was tired of getting haircuts I did not like. 

What is unique about your work, what sets you apart? 

We are one of the few ALL curly staff salons in our area. 80% of my personal clientele is curly. Because of our own curls, clients know we get it. 

If you specialize in curly hair, what made you adopt that focus?

In the 90’s, I was a conservative cutter because I understood spring factor. In the 2000’s, I learned and adopted the curl-by-curl dry cutting technique and loved it.

What changes have you seen in relation to curly hair in the last 10 years?

Many! Product knowledge. How moisture is such an important part of daily care. And how people want to wear their hair more natural. Even print work in magazines is curly now more than ever. 

How did you first hear about Jessicurl?
