I've been using Paul Mitchell products. Right now I'm using his Moisture shampoo and conditioner, but I've tried his other shampoos and conditioners before, and I am equally happy with them.Okkk, I have curly hair. I am totally in love with straight hair and I envy those who have it naturally.
But anyways, I tried lots of products that de-frizzed my curls, and the fact is that I just don't like my type of curls. I'd rather have wavy hair than curly hair. I know some people can acheive this look with a curling iron, but I can't...I suck at doing anything with a curling iron. I had a perfect wavy-ish look that my friend acheived when she did my hair, (I loved it)......but she straightened it AND then curled it with a curling iron, (both were like 550 degrees) and both at once just totally fryed my hair, I mean not fryed but it def. was not good for my hair.
Is there anything to make straightening your hair last? You know what I mean? Like if you straighten your hair, how can you make it last 3-4 days? Any product you guys use for that? Or any product to keep it looking non greasy or something?
But anyways, when I do wear my hair curly, I use the Frederic Fekkai Curl line. Sometimes it makes my curls look pretty.....like almost all the same type of curls, ringlets sort of, and my curls are not that way without the F&F Curl Line. I've tried drugstore products but they just don't compare.
But curly hair is a lot of work, and straight hair is a lot easier for me...with straight hair, you can just wake up and brush it and then leave. But ohhhh, the damage, KWIM?
I use the Super Skinny Relaxing Balm and I've used the Super Skinny Serum, really though between the two you only need one.
I've used the Straight Works gel, but I don't have it right now and my hair has been fine. Save your money on that one, I don't see the point of it.
So basically if you want to try Paul Mitchell, I'd recommend getting either the Super Skinny Relaxing Balm or the Serum. I think the relaxing balm is better because I feel I can go longer without my hair getting greasy than with the serum, but for a special occasion I use the serum because I think it gives me more shine.
In addition to that the Heat Seal is a must.
Here's the description of it:
MULTI-PURPOSE, HUMIDITY RESISTANT STYLING SPRAY
Humidity Resistant – Ensures longer lasting style—curly or straight
Builds Body and Enhances Shine – Clean, flexible styling agents and essential fatty acids provide style memory and added shine
Thermal Protection – Helps prevent damage caused by blow dryers and hot irons
I live in Florida, it's super humid here, and this stuff keeps my hair fairly straight for about 2-3 days when I use it. (I hardly ever go 4 days, because that's about the day I need to wash my hair, but if I do go 4 days my hair is still somewhat straight by then, no curls, just light waves, but again by day 4 it needs washing and I wear it up anyway)
Let me know how you like it if you try it.
