After years of the same hair products to tame my curls, I recently decided to try something new. I started using Aveda products about 2 years ago and I had amazing success with their Smooth Infusion Line so I decided their curly hair line must be amazing too! I decided to buy their be curly™ line, which includes their Shampoo, Style Prep and Curl Enhancer.
Their website describes their shampoo as a gentle cleanser for your waves or curls, which helps to define them while taming frizz and increase shine.
I figured I needed all of that and then some so I thought I would give it a go. I have only used it 1x because I typically don’t shampoo everyday and so far this stuff is great! This shampoo has a really nice lather, unlike some moisture shampoos for curly hair that seem like they aren’t actually cleaning my scalp just conditioning my hair. The shampoo rinses out easily and my hair doesn’t feel like straw, which is the 1st time in years I could say that. I feel like it helped moisturize my curls and definitely helped define them!! I probably won’t use this daily, so I know I will likely not go through this quickly. This is definitely a win in my book.
According to the website, the style prep adds moisture and curl definition while sealing the cuticle and taming frizz all day. Detangles and makes styling curls easier, along with helping maintain them longer-while leaving hair soft, not “crunchy.” Boosts the effects of the curl enhancer.
After my shampoo, I comb my hair and add conditioner. That is the last time a comb will come near my curls to preserve their structure. Then after the final rinse, with my hair soaking wet, I divide my hair in half and take two pumps of the style prep per side. It glides on my hair so easily and I feel like my hair is silky after application. I love using this right out of the shower with soaking wet hair to seal in the cuticle and then scrunch my hair to get rid of the excess water. This stuff is a keeper!
Per Aveda, this intensifies curls, taming frizz and heightening shine. Wheat protein blend expands when hair is wet—then retracts when hair is dry—to lock in curls or waves.
After Style Prep, I take a hefty amount in my hand and gently smooth over my curls and I can honestly say this stuff helped get my hair back in shape! After straightening for so long and using Aveda’s smooth infusion line, my curls were looking very limp. After the first time using this stuff my curls were big and bouncy and back to normal (see picture above which was taken at the end of the day)! Once I am done with products I blow dry for 5 mins and then let my hair air dry.
These products definitely made me love wearing my hair curly!! I am so please with these products, Aveda wins again!! Do you have a wavy/curly hair story? Leave me a comment and let me know!!
