Changing hair products if you have curly hair can be somewhat of a frightening (and expensive) move. I know that might sound a little overdramatic, but curly hair is serious business. I have found there are very few products out there that really work for my hair. So end up wasting money on products AND my hair looks like hell. I had used the same thing in my hair since I was in high school. Sure I have tried other things through the years, but I always came back to this one mousse. But I got to the point recently where I just didn’t feel like it was working for my hair any more.
One thing about curly hair is that it is super dry. And I felt like the mousse was really drying out my hair even more. So I got a MUCH needed hair cut – like 6 – 7 inches off. I’m really not a long hair type person, but I also hate to get my hair cut. Normally I wait too long to get a cut, to the point where I want to chop it off myself with a pair of scissors, and I had absolutely gotten to that point.
After my hair cut, I decided to change up my product game. So here is what I am using now (and LOVING!).
I love this masque. I have been using it for several years. Sometimes I use the deep conditioner, but mostly I use the masque. I use it once a week when I am in the shower, leave it on for about 5 minutes, then rinse it out. It leaves my hair so incredibly soft and silky smooth. Unfortunately I can’t find this on the Bumble and Bumble website anymore, and now I am in a panic. So I guess I will be buying out the supply from Amazon!
When I told my mom about my hair issues, she gave me a small bottle of the BB Curl Cream she had. I was a little skeptical. I didn’t think it could tame my hair. But it really works! I love that it is a cream, which leaves my hair soft but also not frizzy. There is also a Curl Primer that I would be interested in trying sometime.
I decided to splurge and get some MoroccanOil products. It was a gamble, since I have never used their products before, but I am a believer. I use this curl cream (basically like a leave in conditioner) when I get out of the shower.
Now, I know I said mousses dry my hair out, but this one is different. First of all, I use it along with the Intense Curl Cream. Plus this isn’t like a typical mousse. Most mousses are like a thick shaving cream. This one is a a light sudsy mix, so it doesn’t weigh my hair down. But it does give it enough hold that I don’t have out of control frizz.
Some days I use the BB Curl cream and other days I use the MoroccanOil products. It just depends. I really love them all. In fact, I need to order more of the BB Curl Cream, since my little bottle is almost out.
I feel like my hair is so much healthier now. I know the hair cut help, but I think the products are really doing wonders as well. My hair feels so much softer, and I love it.
Does anyone else really struggle with hair products?
