Washing and curly hair can be an interesting mix. Water can hydrate your curls and bring them back to life, but washing it can leave your hair dry and frizzy if done to frequently. Wherever you live around the world, a change in the weather or your routine can lead to a shift in your wash day cycle. I typically wash my hair once a week on a Saturday but depending on what my week involves, I might co-wash during the week or wash it every two weeks. I've been receiving some emails from people who are unsure about how regularly they should be washing their hair so here are my top 3 tips to know when to whip out the shampoo and conditioner.

Start the day right by bringing your mum a delicious breakfast in bed. Whip up your mum's favourite breakfast dish, get a pretty tray and a flower in a vase to spice it up and ta-da breakfast in bed. If you don't know what to make your mum or you're a terrible cook try any of these recipes.

Scalp Massage
It is time to let the pampering begin. If your mum loves scalp massages as much as mine does, then she will love this oil scalp massage. While your mum is eating its time to whip out the oil and heat it up so it's nice and warm. Pour this oil into a squeeze sauce bottle or any bottle you feel will work best and apply it sparingly to your mum's scalp so it doesn't pour onto her face. Then let the scalp massage begin. Watch the video below to learn some new scalp massage techniques.
DIY Time

If you have a creative mum, she might like to make a DIY hair mask. If you aren't good at DIY treatments, you can buy a heat cap conditioning treatment for each of you to wear whilst watching a movie. This is also a great time to do a DIY face mask. If hair masks aren't up your mums avenue, maybe you could try our deep conditioning hair treatment. Check out the videos below for other DIY concoctions you can give a go for Mother's Day.

If you already have a steamer its a great time to whip it out and steam your mother's hair for her.
Otherwise, you could do it your self following the steps below:

  1. Soak a towel in water and wring it out so that the water is not dripping.
  2. Place the towel in the microwave for 2 minutes or until very warm.
  3. Wrap the warm towel around head.
  4. Cover towel wrapped head with a shower cap or plastic bag big enough to hold steam.

Hair products for curly hair can be expensive so to get some for Mothers Day can be a dream come true. If you know what products your mum likes and what brand she currently uses maybe try and get her more from that brand. If someone buys the Shea Moisture Curl Smoothie every month they will probably like a product gift set of the range. Even if they don't love every product, we all like to try new things and find different products that work for our hair.
