Seashell Inspired Curls


Colouring Curly Hair By Duplicating the Natural Spiral Shapes and Patterns of Seashells


Who doesn’t love collecting seashells at the beach? They’re a great souvenir of fun and relaxing memories of holidays at the beach. They evoke the sounds and smells of the ocean, and each one is unique and beautiful in its own way.


Colouring curly hair can be a challenge. Avoiding a flat, monotone look is the key to creating a natural look. Highlights and lowlights need to be brought out to make the most of curly hair. For long curly hair, if the colour is too bright, the look is very frizzy, see-through and transparent. Adding depth to the ends makes them thicker, shinier and richer.


Each colour family has three dimensions. For instance, blond hair has ash, gold and yellow tones; auburn hair has copper, gold and red tones. By artfully applying these colours in a seashell-inspired manner, curls will be even more beautiful, unique and flattering to the wearer’s face.


The right colours applied correctly can add brightness, dimension, and depth to curly hair. Making hair look healthy and shiny with this vibrant colour can be achieved by using weaker peroxide strength than one would when working with straight hair. Curly hair is more porous than straight hair. You want to use colours that will not damage the hair at a lower strength than the colours used for straight hair. Your hair will look and feel healthier with added light reflection.


The right application methods depend on having a stylist that knows and understands curly hair. For instance, did you know that people with curly hair usually have more hair at the root area than at the bottom? With curly hair, if you weave a bunch of hairs at the root area, by the end there is very little left. The density of the hair is different. When you are looking at curly hair, you almost always have to look at the ends of the hair, not the root to see how many hairs there are. What colour do you want the ends to be? Maintaining these colour looks with the right products is also key. Curly Hair Solutions’ colour treated hair line gives colour treated hair body and shine while maintaining its colour.


Knowledge of the needs of different curly hair types is crucial to colour application. The right expertise results in colour that makes the most of beautiful curls. Curly Hair Solutions is all about helping people embrace the lovely natural curls that Mother Nature gave them. Formerly-frizzy people all over the world are grateful that someone finally understands them!
