Deva Curl shampoo, conditioner, and hair gel
Surprised? I have short hair! I'm so glad I finally cut it cause I'd been wanting to do it for a long time. I thought I would wait until summer when I could experiment and not worry about how it looks for school everyday. I'm glad I did because it needed some tweaking after the original cut. Last week I went to the hair salon and took about six inches off; completely even at the ends, no layers or anything. I had it blown out strait which looked really nice at the time. The problem came about when I let it go curly a few days later. It was too.... big, triangular, I don't know. It just wasn't right. I tried a myriad of drugstore products; mousse, paste, curl cream, but nothing gave me that perfectly imperfect tousle I wanted. When I had my hair long I would straighten it all the time, but part of the reason I cut it was to embrace my natural texture, so I decided to try adding layers. Nothing too major, just some shorter pieces to frame my face. I went to a different salon and put full hair-restoring faith in the stylist who does my mother's hair. She completely understood the problem. Even better than I did, actually. She cut it dry, twisting my locks and cutting into them from an angle, then washed my new 'do with shampoo and conditioner made especially for curly hair. While it was still wet, she scrunched it with a light gel and put clips at the roots to add some lift. Once my hair dried she shook out the curls a bit and softened my part so that it wasn't as harsh. One look in the mirror and I knew I had come to the right place. My hair feels so much lighter and totally non-triangular. I bought all the products the stylist used so I can keep up with my curly mane at home. I'm so glad I cut my hair short, it was definitely time for a change. I think this look is a lot more "me." It's easy, girly, and sophisticated yet fun.
