Hi Heidi, I Really Want To Rock My Naturally Curly Hair. My Hair


Hi Heidi, I really want to rock my naturally curly hair. My hair almost looks like Jo-ann Strauss’ hair. My problem is that I don’t know what to use to combat frizz and all that shrinkage. I read on the BeautySA site what Jo-ann uses but that doesn’t seem to work for me. Could you recommend shampoos, conditioners, leave-in’s, waxes, mousses, ect I could use (on a student budget)? Thanks!

Hello Blanche

The most important way of creating manageable naturally curly hair is to keep the hair in great condition, and of course, to control it. I recommend that you shampoo your hair weekly with Dark and Lovely 3 in 1 Shampoo followed by the Dark and Lovely Deep Conditioner. After gently towel blotting the hair, without rubbing at all, spray on Dark and Lovely Beautiful Beginnings Ouchless Detangler and comb through with a wide tooth comb. Then apply L’Oreal Studio Line Mineral Control (Invisi FX) for 100% clean hold, residue free, for those who want subtle and soft styles.Minerals ion the product will make the hair stronger.

You may prefer to roller set your hair for a more sculpted and controlled finish.
