Jessicurl Spiralicious Styling Gel

Nov 24, 2013 - This gel was awesome on rainy, drizzly days or any time that I needed consistent hold all day. The shine was very good as well. I prefer chunkier definition while this gave me skinnier clumps, but they did feel soft. I also found performed it better in soaking wet hair, just like the directions suggested.

Ouidad Curl Recovery Melt-down Extreme Repair Mask

Oct 21, 2013 - This DT was thick and initially difficult to distribute. I applied small amounts and worked it through an area at a time. After massaging/working it a bit, it seemed to almost foam and then distributed very easily which must be the "melt-down" the name and description alluded to. I did see evidence of the lipid repair because I felt the DT didn't rinse out fully and left behind a coating. Perhaps this layer of repair was too much for my curls because it left my curls frizzy and messy, a common sign of overconditioning. But I always airdry so perhaps my hair didn't need a DT for extreme recovery.

Samy Fat Curls Curl Defining Gel

Jun 11, 2013 - This gel encouraged my curls nicely and had decent hold. However, I had spider weby surface frizz that was there from the beginning and increased during the day. The gel wasn't bad in curl definition/encouragement and hold, but with the surface frizz, it was average.

Martha

Jan 23, 2011 - Excellent dry cut with Martha! Cut each curl with the Curly Girl angle at the ends and used the great analogy of cutting a curling ribbon. She also reinforced that I would know my curls best rather than pushing attitude (which is all I've encountered from OTHER stylists since moving to the Atl metro). Easy to talk to. Spent a good bit of time before the actual cut to get to know me, my preferences, what I do with my hair, etc. $53 for the dry cut. Very reasonable price for leaving happy about my cut. Feeling positive about the haircut experience--priceless!
