With the plethora of hair products lining drugstore shelves specially formulated to give your flat, bed-headed mane some lift, shape, body, and volume, what’s a curly-haired gal, looking to avoid just that, to do?
Having tested any and every product on the market designed to tame fly-aways, define curls, smooth locks, and make the hair on my head appear as though it grows out vertically and not horizontally, I have emerged from my journey with two clear winners. The miracle products:
Frédéric Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream, $23
This thick yet silky hair cream developed by a world-renowned hair guru is well worth the investment. It uses olive oil as the prime ingredient to promote unbeatable shine while keeping hair in place. And since you only have to use about a dime-sized dollop, it might last you longer than you’d expect.
