Go Curly

I have naturally wavy hair, so as I've stated before, it takes a lot in the morning to blow it dry straight, and then use a flat iron to get the ends straight and smooth. Once in awhile, I like to give my hair break, more frequently, about once a week, I wear it curly.

I don't have naturally fun curly hair. I have frizzy waves! And it's short, so it's hard for it not look like Bozo when wearing it crunchy curly. I've tried several different mouses and gels to help get my waves to curl and to keep away frizz. Here are a few that I like:

They specialize in what I need! I've tried almost all the products in the DevaCurl line love them. If it works for my wavy hair, it will definitely work for those of you with actual curl.

My favorite from DevaCurl is AnGEL. I use it to crunch my hair after it's been in a towel for about 10 minutes and it doesn't weigh down my hair.

The Deva Fuser is crazy looking and works great! It's a giant diffuser hand! I was afraid my hair was going to get caught in it at first, but it in and out of my hair very easily.

The Tousle Me Softly line is pretty nice. Not only does it smell delicious, it holds my hairs' curls throughout the day. I like the Spray Gel for crunching my hair when it's wet. Once it dries, it doesn't leave it with the shiny, crusty look like most gels do. This gel dries naturally and keeps it's hold.
