Let’s Talk About Hair

Like so many people out there, I dream of having hair that is basically opposite of what grows on my head.  I have thin, wavy/frizzy locks with no body to speak of, so I have to hunt for products that give the illusion of having beautiful, thick, voluminous strands.  When Birchbox teamed up with Curly Hair Solutions, I jumped at the chance to try both their Curl Keeper Gel as well as their Original formula.

The Curl Keeper Gel is made to reduce frizz and keep your curls light and bouncy without the crunch.  I tend to shy away from gels as they leave my hair stiff and weighed down, but this formula is water-based with Panthenol, which helps keep curls in a nice “S” shape and reduces fly aways without the signature gel feel.  I use this product when I get out of the shower and let my hair air-dry, which gives my hair more volume, more defined curls and less frizz.

The Original Curl Keeper is also a water-based formula, and I use it when I style my hair with a blow dryer or curling iron.  This doesn’t give the same defined bouncy curls as the gel, but it definitely keeps my hair from looking like a puffy, frizzy mess.  If you’re a person who can go a day or two between washes, you can easily re-active this formula by misting your hair to tame those unruly strays.

I definitely recommend these products as they are long-lasting, they doesn’t leave behind any residue, and they can really turn your kinky/wavy locks into a smooth pile of curls.
