Alexjoujou's Latest Product Reviews

Redken Soft Spin 05 Curl-Enhancing Gel

Mar 15, 2010 - This stuff completely surprised me. Originally I used a very small amount and got straight stringy hair. Not good. Then I used a grape (large) sized amount and what a difference. It left my curls enhanced and defined--even on my straighter canopy. It held all day and I got 2nd day hair. I added just a bit of a hard hold gel over it (because I usually do and am paranoid about hold!). It is hard to distribute (its only drawback outside of smell which isn't that great to me) but you can either add some other gel to it or a bit of water. Using it on soaking wet hair also helps a lot. Really great curls! They weren't as bouncy but they held fine. Not too producty either. Thumbs way up!

Living Proof No Frizz Wave Shaping Curl Defining Styling Cream for Medium to Thick Hair

Feb 27, 2010 - Its not the worst thing I've used but the definition was minimal for the curls. No enhancement at all. Left my canopy straighter than normal. Did not weigh my hair down or cause it to be flat. Smell is awful (what were they thinking?) and at the price point it is definitely not a repurchase for me.

Aubrey Organics B5 Design Gel

Feb 21, 2010 - I'm with Gretchen. AWFUL! No hold, fluffy mess, part of my hair had too much volume part was flat as a pancake. Smells icky too! I love AOMM but this one is awful! I have fine and thin hair and it also made my hair feel weighted down and heavy. I ended up having to have a re-do. Not recommended!

Live Curly Live Free the Salon - Gulfport, Florida, United States

Nov 13, 2009 - I actually did not go to the salon. I was very fortunate to have a style and cut by Tiffany as part of the Roadshow (California) in the Fall of 2009. I have never in all my 43 years been so happy with a stylist, cut, and style. My hair has never looked better and I am absolutely loving it. She took the time to find out what I wanted, the little quirks in my hair, what was my past experience and then actually talked me through the cut and I could ask questions while she was doing it. Afterwords, she did a style and showed me how to use clips to great effect. In amongst all this, of course, she was educating me on my hair and assisting me with questions. I would never have thought to find any stylist so outstanding. To be honest if I don't have another opportunity next year to have a cut here in CA with some sort of Roadshow, I honestly think I will be buying a ticket to Florida to get my haircut. I cannot believe I said that but folks she is THAT GOOD. I have no reservation at all in recommending if you are remotely close to her salon or if she does any roadshow coming your way, that you are the first in line for an appointment. It does not get any better than this. Her website and the e-book are also phenomenal. Overall clearly someone who cares and that makes her even more special.
