When it comes to gorgeous curls, maybe she’s born with it, or maybe she just has a really great curl kit. Curl kits are becoming all the rage because they help ladies achieve healthy curls that are truly divine. Which kit should you try ASAP?
Well, two curly girl sisters, Arianne Suggs and Alicia Suggs, have the 4-1-1 for you. Keep reading to find out which curl kits work well for them!
What A Curl Wants
What does it take for curly hair to look fabulous? In short, it takes the right products. Curls need to be infused with moisture and nutrients to give bounce as well as shine to each ringlet. The Medium Curl Starter Kit by Curly Hair Solutions has been formulated to “control the balance between moisture and strength” in curls.
How does it accomplish that?
The Medium Curl Kit comes with different products: Treatment Shampoo, Conditioner, Slip Detangler and Curl Keeper Original, all of which result in total control for frizzy hair. Moreover, if keeping products organized is your thing, you’ll be thrilled with the packaging. The products come in a very chic and little clear bag. This way you can easily keep up with your products or take them with you when traveling. Also, since the kit bag is clear it is a cinch to identify the products and grab what you need.
Of course, we never take a company’s word for their products. We investigate them thoroughly first. I am thrilled to say that we were very impressed with our findings when it came to the Medium Curl Starter Kit. Every single product in the kit listed Aqua (water) as the first ingredient. Water is essential for curls, so its inclusion is a very good sign. This means water is the largest component in each product, thus ensuring that the hair will be well hydrated with use.
In the Shampoo, Conditioner and Slip Detangler, we noticed they contained Silk Amino Acids. Silk Amino Acid contains alanine, glycine and serine, which are the protein stimulants in our skin and hair. These acids work to nourish, strengthen and even rebuild any damage. Once again, a very nice find, as these products indicate that your curls will be healthy.
Lastly, in the Shampoo and Conditioner we also took note that Panthenol was included. What is Panthenol? Panthenol is a derivative of the Vitamin B5. Panthenol is mostly used as a humectant which helps retain moisture, and is primarily used in skin and hair products. Panthenol’s molecular structure allows it to attract moisture from the atmosphere as well as bind to water molecules. Therefore, it is another important ingredient that will keep your curls well moisturized.
Here’s another aspect of the kit that completely separates it from the competition. They have obviously thought about the refresh. Any gal who rocks her curls in all their glory has come across this hair scenario at some point. Hair looks absolutely fabulous the first few days but then it starts to lose its luster. In order to return ringlets back to their gorgeous beginnings, the styling needs to be refreshed.
How is this accomplished?
Usually, you must rehydrate strands with water and reapply product to restore the original look. It’s really not any different than when you’re wearing tresses straight. Most likely you used a flat iron to achieve a silky, smooth finish. Nevertheless, as time goes by you may need to refresh or touch up the style so that hair remains sleek.
The same principle applies to curly hair and thus the refresh is important. Curly Hair Solutions also sells an amazing spray bottle! It’s large, so you will not have to refill it every two seconds. Plus, it helps to speed styling time up and cut down on bathroom messes as well as wardrobe malfunctions – you don’t need to re-do your hair every time you want to go out!
Before us curly girls got smart with the spray bottle technique, we were dousing our curls by tossing our entire heads under a sink faucet. I think many of you know what I am talking about, right? Then, you had to send up a prayer to the hair gods that you could apply all necessary products before your hair dried, to keep your clothes from getting wet, and to not splash the mirror.
Those good old days are over and with the nifty spray bottle, you can control how much moisture gets applied to your hair.
