I have naturally wavy hair so it takes a bit of work for me to make it look good curly (and even more work to make it straight!). The gels and mousses I've been using from the drugstore are either too light and leave my curls frizzy and fluffy, or they're too hardcore and leave my curls crunchy and stiff-looking. Do you have any budget-friendly recommendations for a product that will leave my curls defined but still looking natural? Thanks! —BK
I'm a fan of all the Sunsilk
products because they're cheap and work well (read our review here
). If I want to splurge, I'll get Phytodefrisant Botanical Hair Relaxing Balm
($26 for 3.3 oz at Sephora.com), which was recommended to me by a shi-shi hair stylist years ago. A little goes a long way!
As for curls, I'm no expert as my hair is fine, slightly wavy and prone-to-frizz in the summer, but not curly. Funny, I always wanted curly hair. But I digress: L'Oreal
has two new products that I've heard are good, Glossy Curls Mousse
and Glossy Curls Spray Gel
. Maybe you've seen the ads with Penelope Cruz?
Now I'll open the convo up to my amazingly knowledgeable readers: What hair care products would you
recommend to boost BK's curls and tame the wave?
