Dear CurlySuzy: I have 3B type hair cut in a short bob, longer in front than in back. I currently use Fructis curl paste and L'Oreal Studio Line out of bed. I like big hair and use a diffuser to blow dry. My problem is now that summer is here, my hair is completely flat! I need help — but I want my hair big and a mix between curl and wave. What should I use?
Dear Donna: Here are some suggestions for your curls. First, you might need to use a clarifying shampoo once a month in your curls to get the build-up from the products out of your hair. Build up can make your curls flat and limp. I will also give you some suggestions for products that add volume and curl definition. Some will dry with a bit of a glaze. Just scrunch a bit when your hair is dry and the curls will be soft and bigger. I hope this helps, and please email me if you have more questions.
3 good clarifying shampoos; you will probably like the Elucence one the best:
These are some great deep conditioners — good to do a 30-minute treatment once a week. Definitely do a treatment after using clarifying shampoo.
These products will really add volume when you use your diffuser! The gel you like will probably work well under these.
