Do we have any curly readers out there? How many of you have ever had a hard time finding a shampoo, conditioner, or styling aid to keep your curls (or waves) looking clean, fresh, smooth and frizz-free? That last one is my hardest. I have naturally wavy-to-loose-curl hair (depending on if I trim it to halfway down my back or let it grow out longer) that frizzes extremely easily. No matter what styling creams, gels, sprays, oils, and mousse I use it's inevitable that by the end of the day my hair is frizzed and/or my waves have gotten droopy looking. That's why I was so excited to try out Jessicurl, a company that specializes solely in products for curly/wavy haired people. I received the Light and Luminous Collection, a set designed specially for people with finer curls and waves. This set includes the Gentle Lather Shampoo, Aloeba Daily Conditioner, Too Shea Extra Moisturizing Conditioner, Gelebration Spray, Confident Coils Styling Solution, and Awe Inspiraling Spray.
This set actually works as a system. Obviously the shampoo and the Aloeba conditioner are for use whenever you shower. I like to use the Too Shea extra moisturizing conditioner once a week, plus a little for a leave-in a few days a week. After washing and conditioning, and without squeezing out your hair or using a towel, spray in the Gelebration spray, then scrunch your curls upwards. After that you may use a microfiber towel to gently scrunch again, removing excess water from your hair. It's recommended to not use a standard towel, as that can cause frizz. The next step is to squeeze a small amount of Confident Coils styling solution into your hand, and distribute evenly through your hair, again making sure to scrunch to encourage the curls. You can then either air dry or blow-dry with a diffuser. I usually don't blow dry my hair as even using a diffuser it causes more frizz, but I did try it out after using this system. To my surprise it didn't add frizz like it normally does...which means now I don't have to walk around with wet hair half the day!
You're probably wondering what the last product in the set, the Awe Inspiraling spray, is for. This is for those days where mid-afternoon or evening your curls start to lose their hold, and start looking droopy. Maybe you used the system in the morning, now you're headed out for a special evening, and want to touch up your curls. This is where the Awe Inspiraling spray comes in! Simply mist into your hair, scrunch, and you're good to go. I love that this doesn't add a new layer of hold that will end up weighing your hair down, it actually refreshes the product you already have in!
As you can see, the Jessicurl products are amazing. This system all works together to give you hair that is clean and smooth, curly, and drastically reduces the amount of frizz I normally have to deal with. I honestly haven't ever used a better line of products for curly hair. This is definitely going to be on my holiday shopping list this year for all my curly-haired friends and family!
