Paul Mitchell Introduces The Truth About Curls Collection

As a beauty blogger, one of the questions I get asked most is to recommend products for curly hair. But I don’t have curls (well, not anymore…my hair is relaxed, and has been for 25+ years), so I’ve been reluctant to endorse products that I don’t myself use. That is, until now…

Paul Mitchell recently introduced a new hair care range for girls with curls. If your ringlets are going rogue, your waves are wilted or your tendrils have got it twisted (and not in a good way), The Truth About Curls collection is the detangling, frizz-fighting, defining, hydrating and smoothing answer to your prayers.

Spring Loaded Detangling Shampoo: Rich lather gently cleanses curls without roughing up the cuticle. “Prepares curls for a frizz-free finish.” Ultra-moisturizing and sulfate-free.

Full Circle Leave-In Treatment: Lightweight conditioning treatment won’t weigh hair down. Do-it-all formula hydrates, detangles and tames frizz. Replenishes thirsty locks and helps protect against damage.

Twirl Around Crunch-Free Curl Definer: Dual-formula swirls together hydrating cream and smoothing gel. Defines, separates and tames unruly curls and waves without frizz or crunchiness. Helps curls retain their shape and bounce all day long.

Ultimate Wave Beachy Texture Cream Gel: Secret weapon for creating sexy, tousled beach waves. Forms, separates and adds loads of texture. Humidity-resistant for perfectly imperfect frizz-free styles.

Even if you don’t have curly hair, you can benefit from the shampoo and leave-in conditioner. I’ve personally used the products on my dry, chemically-straightened hair and found them to be gentle and very hydrating. And at $6-40 (depending on bottle size), the price point is nice too.

L’Oreal Paris EverCreme Sulfate-Free Moisture System

Because my hair is overprocessed, dry and damaged, I only wash it about once a week. Which means that when I “do” it, I better do it right – or else my hair will look jacked for the next seven days. Forget a bad hair day; it’s more like a bad hair week for me.

So when I receive hair product samples to review, I’m usually nervous – especially if they’re not from a brand I normally use (e.g., Moroccanoil, Ojon, Phyto, Fekkai, Leonor Greyl). I’m also a hair product snob and I don’t typically shop at mass market retailers for those items. So when a box showed up on my doorstep, filled with the new L’Oreal Paris EverCreme Sulfate-Free Moisture System, I almost dismissed the products altogether and gave them to my friend, Alyssa, to review.

Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Collection

I have a confession to make. I have been using the same brand of hair products since I was in the 6th grade and (name of then-cute boy redacted) told me that my hair smelled nice. Herbal Essences was always readily available, affordable, good to my hair, and it does smell good!

Now 25, I figured that it was time to take a little better care of my hair. Enter the Organix line of products, which is available at drug stores. I picked up the shampoo, conditioner, and the light oil from the Moroccan Argan Oil collection. My hair is thick, coarse, and gets frizzy when not tamed properly – so I knew to stick to a moisturizing line of products. (more…)
