    Aveda Be Curly Curl Enhancer

    Love this line- finally a cure for my frizzy curls!

    I have a love hate relationship with my hair. Hair dressers love it. They can make it do anything. With a LOT of tugging, time, hard work and blowdrying I smooths out beautifully. It holds a curl with rollers or the curling iron. So why could I hate my hair? I HAVE to work really hard to make it look even midly presentable. My husband calls it witches hair, frizzing up at a just wiff of humidity. All that hard work down the drain. POOF. Curls too. Ends flying everywhere, sticking out, very unkempt. Sure I can pile in the moose, but who wants stiff, crunchy hair? Or pile on the serum and now it looks greasy. I used to buy so many products, with little improvement. Hair dressers have explained to me that I have thin curly, more like wavy hair, which can't handle moisture. Can't I just have Jennifer Anistons perfectly straight tossled look? Now I used to use the curling cream by it self and wasn't originally impressed (certainly not for $20). Months later, an Aveda stylist talked me into trying the entire line together. VOILA! Wow do my curls look fantastic, they move and bounce like hair should and they don't frizz up. I FINALLY - after 30+ years of fighting with it - love my hair, and can style it (curly) in less than 10 minutes. The products are more expensive than your grocery store brands, so I was sparing at first, only using it on special occasions, but now I buy the big salon bottles and it is SO worth it! I no longer waste money on products that don't work. So much that I started using it to blow out my hair straight and what do you know - NO frizz - hard work pays off for days - and I live in Florida - where you can cut the humidity with a knife. My best advice for this product - buy all four - and use them together. wash and condition, then apply a quarter size of the curling cream and comb thru fairly wet hair. Blow dry curls with a diffuser or straighten. Top off with a thin layer of the curl control. Enjoy your new hair!

  • Curel Natural Healing Soothing Lotion with Lavender, Chamomile, and Oatmeal Extracts Moisture Lotion

    I am 36 years old, and for as long as I can remember, I have had painfully cracked, itchy, dry and sometimes even bleeding, skin. My mother dragged me in and out of Dr's offices trying prescription after prescription with little to no effect. Most winters I would hide my hands in gloves or my pockets to mask their red raw appearance and minimize my discomfort. I cannot count how many lotions and creams I have tried over the years wasting money and cluttering up our land fills. I discovered this product a couple of years ago and until this product came along my hands looked well over 50. Now at least they look my age, but they feel better than I can EVER remember in my ENTIRE life. I think I've (finally) properly been diagnosed with dyshidrotic eczema, and now I have an inexpensive reliable treatment that takes the itchyness away immediately, quickly soothing and hydrating my skin. All this and it smells great, too!?! THANK YOU CUREL for giving me my hands back! I can touch my new baby and husband without pain or scaley, scratchy, rough skin. And if anyone from Curel reads this....PLEASE don't EVER discontinue this product!!
