Aveda Brilliant Anti-Humectant Pomade

Apr 18, 2015 - This is the best pomade I've ever tried, and I've tried plenty! It adds shine and reduces frizz. It is much lighter than others I've tried so it doesn't weigh my hair down or look/feel greasy. I used a tiny amount on my almost dry hair hoping to fend off frizz. It worked! I plan to try it on damp hair the way another reviewer suggests. Highly recommended!

Bumble and bumble Super-Rich Conditioner

Jul 07, 2013 - I love this conditioner. Very rich and creamy but doesn't leave my hair weighed down. Definitely will re-purchase despite the price.

Kinky-Curly Knot Today

Jun 11, 2013 - This doesn't work for me at all. It makes my hair a flyaway, cottonball mess. Maybe it is too much moisture for my hair. Disappointing.

Hair Rules Salon - New York, New York, United States

Jul 17, 2014 -

Dickey gave me a great cut again! I think he is a better stylist than anyone else I've seen in NYC - and I think I've seen them all.

I got a dreadful haircut from someone else recently and I couldn't make it work no matter how hard I tried. I fried my hair with heat tools trying to deal with it. It looked worse than it's looked in years.

My hair is 2c/3a. One thing that Dickey does differently from others is that he doesn't twirl my hair or rake and shake. He makes sure the hair is dripping wet and applies mousse. Then he just places it gently with a wide tooth comb - not combing it, just lifting it in places.

The salon is bright and airy and the staff was very pleasant to me. The shampoo is a cleansing cream - totally cg, no sulfates.

I'm so relieved that my hair looks pretty again. I will return when it grows out. I got a 20% discount because I'm a senior citizen but the staff teased me that I looked like a teenager. The haircut definitely took years off - not quite to the teen years but youthful. I'm very pleased with it.

Alex Anthony Salon - New York, New York, United States

Mar 23, 2014 - I returned to Alex for my second visit and asked for a much shorter cut. She is very talented and friendly. I 'm very excited by the cut I got - it's modern and soft looking at the same time. Alex used the rake and shake method and mousse. Their Revive leave-in conditioner is the best I've tried, and I've tried them all! I hope I can duplicate what she did and I'll be very happy. I'm excited by my new haircut. Go Alex!

Alex Anthony Salon - New York, New York, United States

Jan 09, 2014 - Wow! I'm so happy with the cut from Alex and the styling technique. I liked Alex immediately and felt that she understood what style would like well with my face shape. As a first-timer, I received a free $75.00 intensive conditioning treatment. All the products and styling steps were explained to me without any pushing of the products at all. This cut is superb. I look better than I have in years and left the salon feeling very confident. The salon is very light, bright and cheery and the experience was very pleasant. I will definitely go back. My highest recommendation.
