Tresemme Curl Defining Spray Gel

May 16, 2012 - I am not a HUGE fan of spray gels because I do not feel that it gives my curls enough hold. I bought this as a way to add more hold after my hair is drying as a form of "hairspray". I found that this works wonders for me when I use it for my second day hair. The night before I will spray a lavender water mixture I made on my hair then add some Kinky Curly Knot Today and Curl Keeper to my hair then spray with some of this gel and plop over night. When I wake up and unwrap my hair I have FULL beautiful soft curls. I have to say right now I LOVE my second day curls much better than my first day! So bottom line, I would buy this again to keep up with my second day curls, but not good for my applying it as a gel for first day curls.

Salon Lorrene - Palatine, Illinois, United States

May 17, 2012 - I went to Salon Lorrene a couple of years ago and Lauren was my stylist. I was not completely disappointed with the way Lauren cut my hair because I went back to her several times. However,the two times I was not satisfied with the way she cut my hair. I had gotten my haircut from her and she had cut the hair in front shorter to layer it. When I went for my next haircut, I told her not to touch the curls in the front because last time she cut it too short and it looked horrible. I told her to just TRIM them. Well, that is not how it went down. She once again cut them and it was so short and looked awful. After that I never went back to her. Whenever I called a salon to ask if they had someone specific that cuts curly hair they always tell me that "all of our stylists are capable in cutting curly hair", that is a false statement. I am not saying Lauren was awful at cutting curly hair, I just want not happy with the last two haircuts I had with her and never went back. From now I look at the reviews on here or DEVACURL. I am very happy with Kristen at Kolorbox in Elk Grove Village and would recommend her hands down!

Kolorbox Salon - Elk Grove Village , Illinois, United States

May 17, 2012 - Since starting my CG method last month (April) I thought it would be good to get a haircut since I have not had one in about 8 months. I heard about the Devacut and was interested in finding a salon that offered that. I went to and found Kristen. I called her up and she was super sweet. I set up an appointment with her. The best thing about her is that her haircut was $50 bucks!! I've heard that DEVACHAN can cost up to $150! I was super excited to try her out since I have had very bad luck with hair stylist cutting curly hair. When a salon tells me that "all our stylist are certified to cut curl hair" I hang up because that is a load of crap. Anywho, I thought Kristen's set up was so interesting and intimate. She works in a building that is salon suits. Something I have never heard of. So it is just her in her own space. Which I loved because it was so intimate and did not feel busy or rushed. I came in and Kristen has a very warm and easy talk to personality. She cut my hair and I loved it, I do however, want to do more layers next times, but since it was my first time I wanted to get a feel for the cut. I am actually going back tomorrow to get my hair highlighted and am super excited. I cannot praise Kristen enough. She is my new go to stylist. The only thing is that she sell Deva Curl, I wish she sold some other curl girl products. I don't like sticking to one line. I will give Arch Angel a try though!! BOTTOM LINE: If you are in the area GO TO KRISTEN! YOU WONT BE DISAPPOINTED!
