All My Curly Ladies

Rihanna's Red Ringlets

I'm on strike from the flat iron, chemicals and blow dryers. It's summer in New York, which means sexy folks and rooftop bars but also means humid days and frizzy hair. As a beauty ambassador  it's hard to stay cute and fight Mother Nature. Maintaining moisture rich locks in a perfect condition takes an arsenal of products from wash to style.  From searching for  shampoos that restore moisture, conditioners that don't leave residue and let's not forget styling gels, dry shampoos and serums, it can get overwhelming.   Have no fear, I've  narrowed it down to the  best products for all my curly  ladies.

Pre Shampoo
Hey no one said this was easy but dryness is a major factor in frizz control. The steps to frizz prevention start before you wash your hair and a pre-shampoo by  J.F. Lazartigue's Soy Milk Strengthening Pre-Shampoo Mask is just what you need. With Red Algae and Soy Milk, this pre-poo for short, protects your tresses from the harshness and stripping agents that shampoos are known for.

You don't have to hop across the pond  for British hair maven Phillip Kingsley's Moisture Balancing Shampoo. It  adds  moisture and leaves hair supple and not stripped better than any other shampoo that claims to do the same thing. Plus a little goes a long way.

Deep Conditioner
Great smell check, leaves hair soft and tangle free check. Carol's Daughter Monoi Repairing Hair Mask works wonders on damaged hair. Combining Monoi oil along with coconut oil and Tahitain gardenia for fragrance, this  wonder worker is a summer must have.

Want a little slip to your hair after washing out your deep conditioner? Ellin Levar's Satin Soft Conditioning Rinse has Cupacu, the rain forest's answer to shea butter which  seals the hair's cuticle  making  the hair retain moisture.

Leave In Conditioner
The queen of curl, Ouidad has created an empire for the curly haired diva. With many amazing products to her line, I do suggest the Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner. You're suppose to put it on your hair while wet  but I also  like to place a little on my locks pre work out as well to add a little oomph.

Some folks are super specific as to how their ringlets appear.Tresemme's Curl Definition Jelly is just for you. It's used by professional stylists to not only add shape to natural curls but to also add shine.
This Summer is brutal ladies, help your hair out, it's your crown.  Check out these products and build your own curl manageable arsenal. It will take some time but your hair will thank me.
