Curly-hair Chronicles

Posted May 18 2009 10:09pm

Jessica Penzias reports:

My hair is bananas…and not in a good way. I have incredibly thick curly hair—the kind stylists take one look at and declare, “This is going to cost extra.” Not only is it embarrassing to have a person on either side of my head when I get a blowout at a salon, it is difficult to manage on my own. I have resisted getting my hair relaxed (my best friend did it and her hair became crimpy and limp) and can’t bring myself to damage it with Japanese straightening.  I’m eyeing the new Keratin hair treatments, which look promising on the lack-of-damage front, but are exorbitantly expensive ($600 a pop!)  While I weigh my salon options, I’ve mastered the art of at-home styling for curly hair. (Although, admittedly I did have a rough patch in kindergarten when my mom would brush out my curls and send me to school with a power-rangers lunchbox and a fro.)  

When straightening your hair I recommend:
Kerastase Nutritive Oleo-Relax: apply to damp hair prior to blow-drying
Bed Head After Party: apply after blow-drying and before flat-ironing 
Kerastase Nutritive Lumiere Nutri-Sculpt: use as a finishing product


And when wearing your hair curly:
Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Calming Crème: apply a quarter-sized amount and comb through
Shu Uemura Liquid Fabric Mineral Texture spray: spray and then comb through to evenly distribute  
Shu Uemura Sheer Lacquer Micro-Fine Finishing Spray: spray generously to finish


Beautiful waves; the promised land!:
Kerastase Nutritive Serum Oleo-Relax: apply before blowdrying
Iron the top half of your hair and then smooth in some  Bed Head
Put your hair in a tight braid and wear it to sleep. You will wake up to loose waves.
Finish it off in the morning with  By Framesi  hair spray


Et voila!  Gorgeous hair, no matter how you wear it!
