Hair Apparent- Part 1, Currrrly Girl

Here is something you won't see too often, a hair post. I am not going to lie, doing anything more than throwing my hair into a ponytail or messy bun is more of an effort than I am willing to put in most days.

My hair in its natural state is an unruly mess. We are talking thick, coarse, dark, color-treated, loosely curly, frizzy nastiness.

Don King ain't got nothing on my Jew-Fro.
Observe, specimen A: my brushed out curls.
Now there, don't lie. I know you are salivating over hot I look in those there pics. Nevertheless, the hair I was given (thanks mom and dad) is just plain gross. It takes a lot of TLC, a little know how, and some great products to get me looking picture perfect.

The following are all parts of my curly hair regimen. I highly recommend the following because they tame my Medusa locks. This special combo was cooked up by a Sephora hair expert, and caters to my dry, colored, frizzy, coarse mop.

PhytoCurl Curl Enhancing Shampoo- Free of Parabens, sulfates, and all that other harsh unnatural stuff, this shampoo does my hair right. At first it was hard getting used to the no-lather factor, but I know in the end my hair is better off without it. The smell is earthy and squeaky clean.
This awesome shampoo is available here

PhytoSpecific Intense Nutrition Mask- My hair needs a ton of moisture when conditioning, so I always break out the big guns. Masks are a super easy, super effective way to restore moisture and health to In general I am known to use masks as opposed to regular conditioners, and this one is super thick and creamy, leaving my curls feeling silky smooth.
Get some here

Rene Furterer Karite No Rinse Nutritive Concentrate- This leave in conditioner is just enough to tame the frizzies, soften, and shine without weighing the curls down, and smells pleasantly of lemon.
Rene Furterer Products are available here

The Final Result: Even Captain Jack is digging it :-D
So what do you all swear by for your hair needs?

I have super curly hair that is way too annoying for it's on good.

The products I use come from the Dominican Republic, their products have crazy names like "Atomic Bomb".hahahaha... At first I was scared to use the products because of those crazy names but once I finally did it was LOVE. :)

That's a whole lot of work for your hair!
I have super short straight bright red hair and I use Davines shampoo and conditioner in "red" to keep my color fresh. I also use Davines #6 glossy plasteline to spike it.

Dissolved girl, I hear ya on it being annoying. The products you use sound really cool actually. Ethnic products usually do the trick since ethnic hair is so tough to deal with at times.

Ernie! It is so much work!!

I love your hair color from your photos! I sort of accept all the work involved since I insist on keeping my hair so long. I have never heard of Davines though, is it good?

I get my hair cut at Sassoon on 18th street and that's what they use. I really like the products, but they are a bit pricey.
