Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper Styling Cream

Apr 21, 2015 - I received a sample of this when I ordered a bonnet dryer and I've never been a fan of creams so I didn't think it would work. It's weird-I put it on my wet hair and put it in two plaits and slept on it overnight. When I woke up, my hair was still damp, and when I took it down, it was frizz central (I rarely get frizz). I left it, though, and as it dried it created perfectly defined curls and terrific clumps. I took a star off for the fact that it's a bit sticky and it has too strong of a smell. If they made an unscented version of this, I'd probably use it all the time.

Giovanni More Body Hair Thickener Gel

Apr 15, 2015 - I am always seeking a replacement for the very expensive Aveda Confixxor gel I've been married to for years and thought this might be it. It's the same liquid consistency and it works well when my hair is wet but it dries with white flakes all over. At first I thought it might be my leave-in (which is Giovanni's, so I thought that odd) but even when I tried it without, I got massive flakes. I won't repurchase at all and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Giovanni Nutrafix Hair Reconstructor

Apr 15, 2015 - This is a go to for me. It's light enough that I was using it as my regular conditioner during the winter Chicago months but it's substantial enough to be used as a deep conditioner. The price is awesome but I only gave it 4 stars because the container isn't large enough-I wish they'd make it in a tub size.

Sine Qua Non - Chicago, Illinois, United States

Feb 11, 2010 - Actually, Summer works at the Lincoln Park location (this add is for the Andersonville location) and I kind of don't want to tell you about her because she's already booked up beyond belief. She is AMAZING. I've never had a better stylist. I have hair that's a cross between a 3b and 3c and she gives me great cuts every time. The only thing better than the initial haircut is how gorgeous it is growing out. It is really beautiful with no mushroom head. I LOVE Summer. LOVE.
