Curls Like Us Curl Cloths

Jul 04, 2010 - Hair type: Fine texture, 3A. I won these from an NC.com contest on Facebook. They are pretty much just like the paper towels I had been using a bunch of (so not very "green"). It's kind of like an open ended sock, and you put your hands through both ends (jedi master style) and then you can rotate it around in circles so you can switch from wet spots on the towel to dry. Didn't know it worked like that until I received it, thought it was just one big cloth. And I love that you get two! They sound so expensive ($20 for fabric) but they are cute, provide clumps, cut your drying time, and you don't have to buy paper towels. Love.

Jessicurl Gentle Lather Shampoo

Jun 30, 2010 - *This is the same review I provided for the Cleansing Cream too but my thoughts are exactly the same* Hair type: 3A, super fine texture, spirals.This is really good if you have hard water. It seems to help remove build up somehow. But it also loosened up my curl a bit too much for my liking. Sometimes my hair felt a bit dry with it too. I liked to mix it though with my GTTT for some extra moisture though. It's like it's not a horrible product, but doesn't provide WOW results either.

LUMINESCE - Warrenton, Missouri, United States
Stylist:
Jen

Jun 27, 2010 - Jen is super sweet. I find that some stylists can be fake sounding and she isn't like that at all. Very relaxed. I have fine curly hair and go in for trims. She's not exactly amazing with curls, but I trust her with my hair. She cut a lot of it off for me when it was damaged and has helped maintain it since. She could stand to learn more about curly hair, but I trust her to never do something I don't want her to do. I've had stylists cut inches off my hair before and it's horrible. The whole place is very nice and has kind stylists. Book early though (like a week in advance) Jen is always very busy.

Beauty Brands - Wentzville, Missouri, United States
Stylist:
Oliva

Jun 27, 2010 - Olivia was sweet as pie. She is Deva trained. I explained to her my previous bad cut where I got "long layers" and she basically thinned out all my curls into strings. I told her I wanted a trim and I was trying to grow my hair back. It took months to get my hair back on track. Olivia picked at my hair and said she still saw some of the weird layers. She has thick curly hair. I thought I was totally in. She knew about Deva products, KMS California, and AG Hair Cosmetics. She was pretty rough at the shampoo bowl. Then she started cutting and I saw chunks being taken off. I was hesitant and asked her what was up. She said she was giving me the appropriate layers to thicken my hair. Though I was nervous, it sounded like a dream. By the time she was done, I was missing approximately THREE inches of my hair when I asked for a TRIM. She made my ends FLAT and it was ALMOST as bad as the first bad layered cut I got. If you have thick curly hair (like 3B/4A) then you could give her a shot. She was hilarious and easy going. She did seem knowledgeable than the average stylist about curly hair. By the way, they carry Deva/AG Cosmetics/Biolage/KMS California/Biosilk... tons of the products that I have only been able to find in the Curlmart. So it's worth going to one of these stores just for the beautiful selection. Other than that, tread carefully.
