It’s really amazing how far curly hair shampoos, conditioners and styling products have come. During the ’80s products specifically designed for curly hair were scarce. We had L’Oreal Pumping Curls (a spray curl enhancer) and that was IT. Those were some rough years, and I have the bad pictures to prove it!
Fast forward to 2009: now there are entire lines of hair care products for curly hair.
This week I started testing cleansing, conditioning and styling products from the newly revamped Curly Sexy Hair line. Have you tried these yet?
The Curly Sexy Hair line’s been around for a few years, but I just never got around to trying their stuff until now. The company folks say the new products feature a more moisturizing formula than before — perfect, since my hair’s always dry and thirsty.
Products in the six-piece collection range from $13 to $16. That includes a Liquid Curling Gel spray ($16), Moisturizing Shampoo ($13), Conditioner ($14), Spray Detangler ($15), Curling Creme ($16) and a Spray Foam mousse ($16).
If your hair is on a strict no-silicone diet, it’s important to note that several of the products contain dimethicone (a common de-frizzing silicone relative).
Some curlies believe dimethicone can build up over long-term use and cause frizzy hair problems. I used to be strict about staying away from the stuff, but now … not so much. So many hair products contain it, and with moderate use over the years I’ve never had problems with it. Plus, I just like to keep my options open, ya know?
I really like the green apple scent of the shampoo and conditioner. I haven’t even opened the curling creme or gel yet, but hopefully they smell just as nice.
I’ll report my results after using the products. I hope they work as well as they smell!
