Is a professional curl softening treatment the best solution for loose curls?

Little girl

Dear Ouidad:

I was debating a Curl Softening Treatment to to create loose curls with my 4b hair, similar to Corinne Bailey Rae's. Is that possible, and is the Curl Softening Treatment permanent?

Dear Seeking Softer Curls: 

I would definitely recommend a softening treatment to get the look you’re looking for. But remember to work with your natural (and beautiful!) curl texture before trying any type of treatment.

However, if you do want to get loose curls, make sure you use a New York and Santa Monica Salons. The Softening Treatment is meant to gently loosen curl pattern without the harsh chemicals found in most relaxers.

If you’re just looking for an easier way to style your tight curls, try pairing a Rake & Shake technique to apply Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel.
