Sun Bum Curls & Waves Styling Cream

Sum Bum is a very unique hair care product that I really like. Why? It is simple, not a lot of products and it performs the way it was made. I wrote a blog on the shampoo and conditioner and these products really do a good job on color treated and virgin hair.

But I have been using the Sun Bum Waves and Curling Creme on my hair and it is thick and short and it works wonder for men’s grooming. On the above model for his photo-shoot we cut the hair short and applied Sun Bum Creme. I groom the style and it held the hair in place and it also has a wonderful coconut scent to it.

The styling creme did not leave the hair brittle or dry looking. My client had no problem shampooing the creme from the hair and he and I use it daily. It will not leave any flaking to the scalp at all. I recommend this for all male client’s that come into the salon.

Now Curls and Waves Styling Creme is a lightweight styling cream with Kukui Nut Oil and Monoi Coconut Oil that helps nourish our hair for soft curls without the crunch. Our Curls & Waves Styling Cream is a lightweight styling cream that helps nourish hair for soft curls without the crunch. It delivers light hold with long-lasting smooth, frizz-free, shiny, touchable curls. It also helps protect your hair from damaging UV rays and shield your precious locks from becoming dull, brittle, frizzy, and discolored.

Wet your hair- wash it, rinse it, condition it, whatever your move is. Towel dry and apply a dime size (yes, less is more) into your palm, and scrunch styling cream into curls starting at the bottom. Use your fingertips to break apart large sections of hair and make more individual, defined curls.

It is not easy to find Sum Bum in the commercial stores, but I go online to order any and all of there products. There website is SUN BUM and you can order from there website any of there hair care products or sun lotions. I highly recommend this product.

What About Deep Conditioning?

There is one exception, and it turns out that the best product for your hair costs $10 and is something you add to your food, and ethinic women love to use on their scalp and hair. Coconut Oil.  Your basic coconut oil, as it turns out, has just the right size and structure that it can penetrate into the cortex.  And therefore it can protect hair from the inside out. Good stuff everyone!

One of the most damaging things for hair is a simple wash and dry it because the water swells the hair and messes up the cuticle. Coconut oil prevents water from absorbing into the hair and so reduces the swelling damage. You may often get.

Common sense says that blow-drying is worse, for obvious reasons. It’s a lot of heat right next to your hair. I agree that air-drying is preferable to blow-drying, but I also say that air-drying itself can also cause harm. So either way it gets you.

There’s not a lot of data on this, but some think that air-drying damages hair because the hair remains wet for a longer period of time. That means more time for the water to swell inside the hair and mess up the cuticle. The longer the hair is wet, the more damage happens. But since hair needs to dry somehow, it’s still better to go for the one that doesn’t involve thousands of watts of energy right next to the cuticle.

Protein treatments are a mixed bag. They’re partly a marketing story, because you can’t actually repair damaged hair just by pouring on more protein. The protein doesn’t also get integrated into the hair structure itself to make it thicker, I find out when I use them in the salon it will dry out the hair. And if used to often it will break the hair. Damaged hair needs to be cut off!

To be clear, “purple shampoo” and “color-protecting shampoo” are different things. “Purple shampoo” is for bleached-blonde hair and it works because the purple tones even out the blonde color and keep it from turning orange.  But can also give the hair a grey cast to it and really dull it out. I like to use just shampoo and baking soda to keep out the discoloration you get in very light blond hair. It cleans it well.

But “color-protecting” doesn’t do much. The reason the color continues to shift is because the chemical reaction isn’t perfect for every molecule.  There will be some bigger color molecules, some little pieces, some will wash out, some will not — and that’s why your color will change and fade over time. Most color-protecting products don’t actually keep the color chemicals in the hair any longer. They don’t do much other than provide good conditioning. Which is very important with color treated hair.
