ATTENTION ALL CURLS!:
Katrina and I (Sam), have experienced some high and lows when it comes to maintaining our curly hair. Sometimes it feels like your hair has a mind of its own and cooperates when it wants to. Why?!
Maintaining the perfect curls comes with the never ending search for the perfect curl cream. Ideally we all want bouncy, soft, healthy looking curls (that smells great too), but it is often more complicated than not. The issue I have with styling my hair is that I feel like although I love certain curl creams, I have to resort to a dysfunctional “break up to make up” relationship with them.
For example: During warmer weather I use Moroccan Oil’s Intense Curl Cream (Available at MoroccanOil.com; $33.40) and it worked amazingly. I usually distribute it in my hair layer by layer; twirl, scrunch, and let air dry. However, as soon as the wintry weather settles in, it just stops working; leaving my hair greasy yet dry and droopy. I was presented with a less expensive alternative called, One ‘N Only Argan Oil Curl Cream, (Available at SleekHair.com; $11.99) but I found it too intense, weighed my hair way down.
Then, I went to sephora and purchased Bumble & Bumble’s Calming Curl Cream (Available at Sephora.com; $29.00). Same thing happened, worked great for a while but then my hair looked really dry after a month of so. What gives? Is this a small piece to a larger problem? Do I need a curly hair maintenance makeover?
So as Katrina and I venture out to find the next curl cream to try, we want to hear from you. We are aware that what has worked and not worked for us, may have worked for you. We are curious as to what your curly hair management routine sounds like as well as your recommendation of curl creams! 🙂
