Design Essentials Natural Quinoa & Bamboo Hair Repair Collection

May 06, 2015 - This system is incredible. I used it for the 4 weeks are directed. I suffer from bad bleach damaged hair that had a lot of breakage. Over the course of 4 weeks it added strength, shine, and softness to my hair. My waves were a bit more defined with less frizz too. I love the shampoo- it is super moisturizing!! The cool thing about steps 2 and 3 being leave in is that it certainly saved me time on wash day. The price is right as well. I took off one point however because I feel they should re-adjust the bottle sizes. After the 4 weeks I am all out of the 2oz bottles of step 2 and 3 but still have half a bottle of the shampoo (which I will continue to use) left. You can read and view pictures of my weekly use I blogged about it http://dianemarybeauty.blogspot.com

Briogeo Curl Charisma Rice Amino + Shea Curl Defining Conditioner

May 06, 2015 - Most of the time I use masks or deep treatments as opposed to rinse out conditioners. However, when do use this I am always so pleased with the results. More than anything, it helps define my curls but it also leaves them shiny, soft and frizz free. Love the scent as well.

Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Avocado + Quinoa Co-Wash

May 06, 2015 - One of my very favorite co-washes. I love all the ingredients inside that help the moisture and strength of my hair. This co-wash helps me detangle my hair so effortlessly. it leaves my hair feeling clean but super soft and moisturized. It also adds a crazy amount of shine to my hair!! I usually don't notice shine from cleansing products. I massage it into my scalp a few minutes and also through the lengths of my hair. I wash my hair frequently now due to exercise and cleansing with this co wash is helping my hair to not dry out.

Ouidad - New York, New York, United States

Apr 24, 2015 -

My experience at the Ouidad salon was amazing from the second I walked into the salon until I left! I have been a fan of the great products for years but never had the signature curly cut. My stylist was the super talented Jason. Quick backstory: I had really long hair that has been breaking off for months due to bad bleaching months ago. It even ruined my curl pattern a bit unfortunately. Devastated & not used to short hair I knew I needed to get it shaped to grow out healthier and stronger than ever. Jason listens! If you have fear of haircuts, which I think is normal for curly girls, GO SEE JASON! I was concerned because some of my broken pieces were super short and I didn't want the rest of my hair to match it. He understood and respected my wish. He listened to me leaving as much length as possible but shaping my hair so my loose curls would fall better. He also asked me questions to confirm he understood what I was asking him about the results of my cut. Excellent attention to detail! I admitted the sound of "carve & slice" was super scary but in reality the cut wasn't. He explained the technique in details and how each cut is done to mimic the natural curl pattern in order to have curls puzzle in like a puzzle piece. He also said the cut is tailored to each and every individual and it all depends on the client's desired end result and hair texture. Somehow after he cut, and he didn't cut a lot of hair (thank God) my curls fell flatter to my head and looked longer than before hand! The carve and slice is done to avoid that dreaded pyramid and triangle. I also got a deep treatment which was amazing and left my hair very soft and shiny. He then styled my hair using the "rake and shake" technique explaining how I can recreate it at home. I took away so many tips and learned so much it was wonderful. At the end he also showed me how I can style and pin it back with cute braids and such. He also brought me a delicious latte and a lemon water and checked up on me when I was under the dryer for the deep treatment and to dry my hair. The chairs are the sink were nice and comfy. Not only did I get a great haircut, but I went away with knowing how to style and care for my hair at home. I can't rave about my experience enough. The whole staff at the salon were pleasant, respectful and kind. I could not have asked for a better experience and I plan on returning for my trims every few months so Jason can keep my hair in tip top condition. I also was observing other clients and every person leaving walked about with beautiful hair. My hair feels healthier already and my curls are springing back to life!

Marucci Hair Design - Staten Island, New York, United States

Oct 29, 2013 - if i can rate this salon 100 stars (scissors?) i would!! I have been a client of Lisa since she was at a different salon. I have been going to her over a year now. She is a magician!! Seriously, my hair never has looked so good until it was in her hands. Marucci Hair Design is a cute salon where you feel at home right away from the moment you go inside. The whole staff are extremely sweet, super attentive and want to make sure their clients are happy. Lisa taught me how to work with my curls so not only does my hair look great when she does it at the salon, but I can also easily recreate it at home. She also colors my hair and my color is shiny, bright & brilliant. She has a great eye for color. And let's say once in a while you want your curls straight (hey, we all need a change now and again right)- she gives the best blow out in the entire universe! Soe blow dries the hair with care, using heat protection making sure not to damage it. My hair was never so bouncy and straight without the use of a flat iron! It looked and felt like silk! My hair is light blonde and shiny and it is all thanks to her! I can't recommend this place enough! <3
