Has anyone seen this Christo video for curly hair? Updated!

He doesn't say what products he used, but the model's hair is absolutely divine! They start touching her hair in the end (for shame!) and it looks so soft! I would love to know what they used. He even emphasized using the right products, but didn't push his own products.

Anyone use Christo's products? I would if my curls looked like hers!
Answered my own question........I need to learn to slow down sometimes

Here's the link to the article in May's Jane Magazine. Christo's salon has monthly free seminars for styling curly hair. Wish I was closer to NYC.

I really like what the writer said at the end of the article:

the first step to getting great curly hair is admitting you don't have a problem.
Ok not to be a buggar, but he said to stay away from products that have oils and silicones as they can damage hair over time, but his products have both. And I have heard other stylists repeatedly say that oils were good. Now I am really confused.
Corkicelli Now! YAY! Now all I have to do is update my avy pic.

I loved how he cut her hair....it went from dragging to major lively.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
I submitted a form on Christo's website asking for my own "prescription" of products. I had read that with a picture of your hair, they can choose products for you. The marketing coordinator from Christo e-mailed me asking for a picture with no product in it that is recent, and they would choose products appropriate for my hair.

****I just uploaded their suggestions and instructions on my fotki. They're somewhat confusing as to how the sections are horizontal. I usually section vertically when applying product.

Looks like he was using thinning shears on her hair.

Frizz Happens!

From there I put in my info and they replied asking for a recent picture with no product in my hair. I replied back to the e-mail attaching a picture, and within an hour or two, I got the "prescription" for my hair.

Her hair looked great.

I noticed he said that curlies with fine hair should use mousse instead of gel... I'm assuming because it wouldn't weigh your hair down as much. Anyone have an opinion on that? I've just purchased a few kinds of mousse (Suave Healthy Curls, HEBE and HETT) to give it a shot. I'll let you know what I find.
