Moroccanoil Curl Defining Mousse

May 22, 2011 - This is my first Moroccanoil product, and I LOVE it! Pros: -Mousse goes a long way, so I can almost justify the price tag (I found it for $32 at a salon) -Incredible curl definition: I even get ringlets on the back of my head, which is usually too heavy to get great definition. -Smells great! -Pretty good frizz control, though I think I need to find something else to pair it with in order to get totally humidity-busting control. I might look into the Moroccanoil oil itself. Cons: -As mentioned above, I feel like I need to pair it with something else to get good frizz control. Haven't found out what this is yet. -Not great for second-day hair. That is, I can't really sleep on it and expect my hair to be good to go the next day. I think this is due to the heaviness of the product (which is amazing for definition, but leads to bad bed head.)

Ouidad Climate Control Gel

Sep 09, 2010 - I was very excited to try this free sample included in my last order, given the high ratings, but find that it only works *ok* on my fine 3A curls. Diffusing is a must, I would say, to avoid crunch. Even after diffusing, however, my hair still felt a little undefined and "frizzy". I think I will have to add a stronger curl-defining gel to get the ideal definition+humidity control.

Jessicurl Confident Coils Styling Solution

Jun 26, 2009 - Gives such great, soft curls, especially over RR! Any crunch that occurs can easily be scrunched out. I use 2 dollops of this over 2 of RR, and then define any especially frizzy front areas with I.C.O.N.'s pomade (which I can't find here, sadly), and I am set to go all day!

Madusalon - San Francisco, California, United States

Jun 15, 2009 - I am a 3a just beginning to accept the fact that my hair requires a lot of time, care, and money. I went to Ivy after reading reviews here, and I definitely think the $85 Deva cut was worth it. Like others say, Ivy is really sweet and makes you feel like her one and only client. She gave great advice about t-shirt drying, clipping, etc. Clipping hair at the crown of your head, along your part, makes ALL the difference. She insisted that I come back if I want anything touched up (although, I think at this point I just need to find the right products to really make her work shine). My only wish is that she gave me more direction on what products to use. I appreciate that she didn't "push" products, but I need to know where to spend my $$, so that I don't buy dozens of $15 bottles of product. Once I find the perfect products, I know that my hair will look as good as when I left Madusalon.
