AG Hair Cosmetics Re:Coil Sulfate-Free Curl Care Shampoo

Oct 22, 2010 - This shampoo left my hair feeling VERY dry and tangled. I did notice slightly better curl formation but the cons clearly outweigh this pro. Since it did give me better curl formation I can see how this may work well for some people but for me it was horrible to feel my hair that dry and tangled.

Georgia at Lulu Belle Salon - Austin, Texas, United States

Oct 22, 2010 - I started getting my hair done by Georgia about 3 years ago. She recently moved to Propaganda and I just had my first haircut there yesterday. The salon has a very upscale trendy feel, but the mood was laid back and relaxed. I really loved that they had ipads for you to play with while you were under the dryer! Definitely a step up from old magazines. However, as nice as the salon was I would follow Georgia anywhere. She could do my hair in her garage! When I first came to Georgia I was suffering from some serious pyramid hair and she gave me the best cut of my life. My curls looked better than they ever had and three years later they still do. She really listens to what you want, but will give you her opinion if she thinks maybe something else will work better for your hair. What she won't do though is suggest something completely opposite of what you asked for or be pushy about you listening to her suggestion like some other stylists. She cuts curly hair dry but will also cut it wet if you prefer. I prefer dry cutting because it allows her to cut each curl very precisely and at the right angle so you get the best curl formation and style. One tip for getting a dry cut is to go to the salon with your hair actually styled and worn down. I usually go to the salon with second day hair. She needs to be able to see how your hair naturally falls in its typical styled state, so no buns or ponytails. She isn't pushy about products but will give you suggestions based on her own experience and what other clients with similar hair have told her they use. I appreciate that because it's not like she is trying to sell you anything she is just trying to help you have the best hair possible. So don't be shy about having the product talk with her. I highly recommend her not only for her skill with curly hair but also because she is great person with a warm and positive spirit. You can tell she really loves what she does and her goal is to make you love you hair. She has definitely succeeded with me :-)
