If you have wavy or curly hair, you probably have as many hairstyling products stashed under your sink and in your medicine cabinet as I do (read: too many to count). And you’ve probably tossed double that amount in the trash after a few tragic uses, too. Am I right? That’s why, when I find a product or cocktail of products that work wonders on my medium-thick, frizzy waves, I talk about them. So here I am, (sorta) talking…
After I finished up what was likely my tenth or twelfth bottle of this delicious creamy mousse from Sebastian, and once I polished off this family of wave enhancing miracle workers, I reached for two products I hadn’t previously tried.
The first one: Redken Blonde Idol BBB Spray, $19. The leave-in conditioner is exactly what my dry strands need before anything else. It smells fantastic, detangles like a dream and leaves my hair feeling super soft. It protects strands from heat styling, too. I spritz it on immediately after showering.
The second one: Kerastase Creme Oleo-Curl, $42. Most styling creams don’t offer up enough defining power to help shape curls and truly prevent frizz. This. One. Does. And it does it without that dreadful crunchy phase. I apply a very generous amount of it from roots to ends — after applying the leave-in conditioner — and let my hair air dry. On days I want to look a little more polished and put together (not that it happens often these days), I bump up my curls with this fantastic Amika curling wand that happens to be on clearance right now for $36. Result: dreamy waves. Can’t ask for more than that.
