My Secret to Maintaining Tangle Free Curly Hair

ouidad-boostOuidad is my new brand!  Celebrity stylist Ouidad, think Sarah Jessica Parker and Minnie Driver, created a line of products that are specifically designed for curly hair.  She’s a stylist. She’s a salon owner. She’s an educator. She’s an author. But most importantly, she’s a woman with curly hair. For years Ouidad struggled with her own head of curls, which led her to dedicate the past 30 years of her life to building a respected reputation as “THE curly hair expert.”

Ouidad realized that curly hair tends to be dehydrated due to its spiral structure. Straight hair’s cuticle (hair’s protective outermost layer) has a smooth, resistant surface. Curly hair’s cuticle layer is lifted away from the hair shaft causing the hair to lose moisture, resulting in dry, frizzy unmanageable hair. When the molecular layer is filled with amino acids and proteins, the hair will have its own internal weight and will not react to humidity. Why? The answer is simple: there is no room for water to seep in, so hair looks smoother, shinier, and it behaves.  Quidad has been able to launch specific products that are designed to boost a curly hair girl’s inner curly beauty!

My definite must have from this line is the Ouidad Botanical Boost Conditioning and Refreshing Spray!  The Bontanical Boost is a lightweight leave-in conditioner chock full of soothing, moisturizing and restoring vitamins, amino acids and botanical extracts.  It is the ideal detangler and refresher for curls and body.  In the morning when I wake up I spray a little on throughout my hair because of course I can’t get my locks wet.  I selectively comb through and it is completely revitalized.  I love it so much I use it on my kids!!!  Get more information at Ouidad.   I am sure you will love it.

Kerastase Launches SPECIFIQUE

kerastase-specifique

Hey all Kerastase lovers out there, and I know there are tons, we have some very exciting news!

Kerastase has just launched SPECIFIQUE – specialist treatments that deliver in-depth solutions for a number of scalp concerns. SPECIFIQUE is the first range from Kérastase that provides solutions for those with dandruff, oily scalp or thinning hair.  In addition to addressing scalp concerns and acting as a treatment line while symptoms persist, this advanced collection allows SPECIFIQUE to address the problem without compromising the overall healthy look of hair.  We all need that!
 
SPECIFIQUE has three separate lines that solve the following hair problems: 
 
DANDRUFF – An overabundance of micro-organisms on the scalp, specifically yeast, lead to an excess build-up of cell clusters, which eventually break apart, forming dandruff. 

OILY SCALP – This condition is the result of an over-stimulated sebaceous gland, which produces excess sebum, forcing it to eventually travel the hair fiber and weigh the hair down.

THINNING HAIR – Internal factors cause many hair types to grow differently, sometimes resulting in hair that eventually becomes finer and suffers from loss of density.

Kerastase always creates stellar products for all to use.  Bravo for creating products that really touch on issues that are faced by women, like thinning hair!  There are so few products dedicated to the health of our hair.

Product review to come very soon.  For more information please visit Kerastase today.

Ask Us! Moisturizer for Straightening Hair?

Hi!
Thanks to your blog I purchased the Babyliss Nano Titanium flat iron after much researching. My question is in reference to moisturizing before flat ironing the hair. I have relaxed african-american hair btw. I’ve read that oils and flat irons don’t mix and that the combo can “cook” your hair. What type of moisturizer can I use in combo with a heat protectant?

Thanks!
Hi StyleBell Reader,
You should always use a thermal protector on your hair before straightening!  As for moisturizing  I believe woman with African America hair really like the Beyond Straight.  Beyond Straight is a straightening serum that helps to straighten the hair and protects from the heat of the iron.  So with Beyond Straight you only need one products.  At 16.95 it is nicely priced as well.

Restore Hair’s Strength and Shine with Moroccan Oil

MorocanOilA Trip to Morocco…
Touted as a revolutionary styling and finishing product, Moroccan Oil is one of the latest in innovative, healthy hair treatments. Just apply a few tiny drops to clean damp hair from roots to tips and you’ll immediately notice a natural, silky softness in your hair’s texture without that greasy, heavy feeling you might find with other hair serums.

With just a few drops, Moroccan Oil instantly goes to work seeping deep into your roots, repairing all of your split ends, while nourishing your scalp with beneficial antioxidants and Vitamins E and F. This super serum works well on all hair types and is especially good at making tangles and those tiny knots disappear with ease – no more tugging and breakage! And the smell is yummy! A a fabulously subtle, incense-y scent that leans more towards a spicy-Caribbean coconut than a sugary tropical aroma. Very nice!

Moroccan Oil promises no build up (and it didn’t!), protects against UV damage and other environmental pollutants, and provides unbelievable shine. I really like the shine without oil factor, even though it’s an oil base, it isn’t greasy. 

 It also claims to speed up your drying time by 40%… I didn’t notice a significant decrease in styling time, but I definitely noticed more manageable, healthier strands after one use. If you’re looking to reverse your daily hair damage, go for Moroccan Oil, the healthy shine alone will make you a believer. Click here to buy it now at StyleBell!
