My hair is fine, but there is lots of it, it's really thick! I usually have waves that look more like bad pillow hair than touseled beach awesomeness. I've tried mousse, gel cremes and leave ins to get some curl happening in my dry climate.
After my last haircut at a new salon my stylist asked if I wanted to wear my hair curly since I had a lot of good texture (and I indicated I am pretty low key/lazy/envious of curls.) wha??? I thought my hair sucked, and it never held a curl for the day with other products, but he used the creme, twisted sections and then blowdried with a difuser and I had the nicest curls I had ever seen on my head.
They were soft and natural, sort of hippyish, just what I like and best of all, my hair is shiny and smells good.
The creme is pricy, more than I ever thought I would spend, especially when it's in the L'Oreal family and they have cheaper products, but that being said, I haven't found a drugstore brand, or salon product that I like as much, so it is replacing a lot of 'rejects' that total more than I spent on the tube.
I only use a nickle to a quarter glop and my hair goes from shower to done in 10 minutes. If I don't use a diffuser and let the curls air dry, I still get nice soft definition.
I wouldn't have thought that something I saw as a product for very curly hair, like a head of ringlets, would work so well on my hair so it was a really great decision by my stylist.
