Curly Hair Girls Unite!
Do you have curly or wavy hair?
This Salvage Sister(a) does!
I use to have more curl, ringlets, to my hair; after pregnancy/childbirth it became more wavy (ish). Go figure. But it changes all the time.
As most curly hair girls I know, it can be a love/hate relationship.
During my younger years……
You know, the pre straightener days, I didn’t enjoy them so much.
Yep, I was alive before straighteners were available at Target. Our TV had rabbit ears and you had to get up to change the channel, a (home) phone with a cord, and a horse and buggy….hahaha.
As I got older, I lean toward love.
What can I say, I like easy!
For me products have been a big key.
I have tried a GAZILLION products!
Some products don’t make the cut.
Some get discontinued.
But some are winner winner chicken dinners….
Here are my top picks for wavy to curly hair:
*You can find these at different beauty stores as well.
**These are affiliate links. At no additional cost to you, we can recommend products we use and receive a small percentage only if purchased.
-Matrix Shampoo and Conditioner has been a winner for me. I will often wait for coupons to come out and buy them since they can be expensive.
Also, I don’t wash my hair everyday, so this lasts me awhile. You don’t need as much shampoo as you may think, just the scalp.
-After I have washed and conditioned it, I blot my hair with a old t-shirt …GREAT REUSE ALERT!
-I then use a hair pick to comb it out and spray it a couple of times with One-N-Only Argon Oil.
-I then apply a bit of Matrix Total Results Curl Contorting Lotion
-I’ve tried different diffusers and like the easy of a “sock” diffuser. It works, fits on any dryer, and you can easily travel with it.
–Once dried, I like using Bed Head Masterpiece Spray
The next day/two, I use a gentle pick to get out tangles, sometimes a detangler (Pantene). To revitalize the curl, I use Garnier Fructis Style Curl Shaping Spray and maybe some hair spray.
For this cheap girl, these products can be expensive, except the Pantene and Garnier….. You can usually find those on sale at your local drugstore.
The other products, I use in moderation if our budget allows. I also look for coupons.
The advantage to Amazon is buying all together and sometimes the ability for free shipping. But it depends on what works for you.
I haven’t always been able to buy these products, but if I can, I like to buy the good stuff, and make it last, than fight with my hair.
I used to get perms from the time I was a senior until my youngest was three. My hair was always on the slightly wavy side, but not much. After I quit getting perms, my hair stayed curly/wavy…crazy. But I totally need product! I don’t have a specific brand, but whatever I find on sale..have to have conditioner, mousse, sometimes and anti-frizz cream, or a curl enhancing cream. I don’t wash my hair every day, but usually wear it down one or two days (the day I wash it) and wear it up the rest of the time…I can’t sleep with my hair down so I put it up in a pony and then if I want to wear it down I have to either wash or re-wet it because my hair does not just fall back in to place.

Kirstin, My hair is the same way….wavy. I go 2-3 times before washing. I put it up too. I would highly recommend the Garnier spray for “next day” hair. Water can make it more frizzy.
