frizz, dryness, damaged curls
The TréLuxe Difference
5 day definition with no refresh, consistent styling results
Although I've always known I had curly hair, growing up I hated it so as soon as I could I started straightening it. I didn’t like standing out in a crowd and straight hair allowed me to blend in. It wasn't until May 2018 when I randomly decided to let my hair dry naturally that I realised the damage I had done. My 3c curls were gone and I was left with barely even a wave. It was in that moment that I went onto Google and typed "How to get curly hair back" - Needless to say I fell down the rabbit hole! I devoured video after video and trawled through every website I could find.
I had images of doing my first "curly" wash and my curls springing back to life. It didn't even enter my head that this might be a long process. I purchased some products and away I went to the bathroom. Two hours later I was in tears. My hair looked exactly the same, dry, frizzy, not curly, not wavy, just limp and stringy. There was just so much damage that my hair wasn't going to play ball. As women our confidence is tied into our hair and in that moment I thought about just going back to straightening it. How was I meant to leave the house like this? My hair looked like fried noodles! I walked into the living room and my daughter who was 4 at the time looked up and innocently said "I like your hair Mummy" I just laughed but in that moment I decided that I was going to commit to getting my curls back. To show her that it doesn't matter if you have straight hair or curly hair, it's just important to embrace what God gave you.
About 18 months into my journey I discovered TréLuxe. I had been seeing these products all over and the reviews were amazing, however I was so worried about buying a non-drug-store product. What if I spent $14 on a shampoo and my hair hated it, just like it had hated every other product? I eventually caved and purchased the Curl Renew & Restore [Cleansing Rinse] and the Hi! Definition [Curl Enhancer Styling] Gel. I remember the first time I used them and I came on Instagram and wrote "Have you ever waited so long to try a product and then kicked yourself for not trying it sooner?" My hair adored these 2 products and I was finally able to achieve consistent results and curls that I felt confident with. My scalp was happy, my curls weren't weighed down and were holding. I eventually added the whole line of products to my collection and to this day, if I know I need an amazing washday then those are the products that I choose. I can use their [products] and not have to touch my hair for 5 days. As a busy Mum that's a game changer! Being able to know what you're going to get at the end of a washday and then not having to think about your hair in the days following. It's one thing ticked off the mental load that women carry. I may have been worried about making a non drug store purchase but it's paid off with something worth much more than money.. Confidence, acceptance and a love for my curls. You can't put a price on that.
postpartum hair shedding, excessive hair tangling
The Tréluxe Difference
stronger strands, definition + moisture, reduced styling time
Because I have five children under the age of six I struggled with postpartum for years. It caused the crown of my hair and my edges to fall out. It can be difficult to smile when your hair is falling out. At one point I thought of cutting all of my hair off and quitting. I am truly glad I didn't give up. TréLuxe Curl Supreme 4-in-1 Hydrating Crème has been one of my favorite products to use during this recovery and regrowth period of my life. This styling cream creates lustrous, defined, and moisturized curls with soft hold every time without fail. I love that I can achieve my best fluffy twist out without effort.
The excess postpartum shedding causes my hair to tangle upon itself more and more. The [Untie the Knot] Leave-In Conditioner gives my hair slip, softness and strength to keep my hair manageable during this time. Since using TréLuxe products, it takes no time at all to have a luxurious natural hair routine. The botanical ingredients aid with healthy hair growth which has benefited me tremendously. Doing my hair from washing to styling can take me anywhere from an hour or less which allows time for me to be a better caretaker to my children and a supportive wife.
frizz, styles that wouldn’t last beyond 1-2 days
The TréLuxe Difference
Frizz control, long lasting curl definition, moisture
I transitioned to healthy chemically processed free hair in 2016. I used to treat my hair with texturizers to soften my curl pattern to make managing my hair easier. I really wanted to stop using chemicals in my hair and truly learn how to love and appreciate the curls that I was born with.
A big problem that I faced was my styles not lasting long enough and ending up with awful frizz. I spent so much time styling my curls just for them to be frizzy the next day. The style wouldn’t last more than 1-2 days. I once styled my hair the day before a wedding that I was invited to. I had high hopes that my style would last me until the next day. I woke up and my curls were frizzy, dry and didn’t look like they did the day before. I was feeling a bit discouraged, and even thinking about not going to the wedding because I would’ve had to re-wash and style my curls (which would take hours). It’s frustrating when you spend so much time on doing something and it doesn’t turn out like you thought it would.
TréLuxe has helped me with overcoming my curl concerns by providing products that are all-natural and have plant-based ingredients. It’s very reassuring to use products that are formulated with MY curls in mind! TréLuxe products have provided me with moisture, frizz control and lasting definition! I gravitated to the Untie the Knot Leave-in, as well as the Hi Definition Curl Enhancer Styling Gel. I love these products because when combined, they moisturize my curls while giving an amazing hold that actually lasts for days!
