They say you always want what you don't have, and for me that's naturally straight hair. Ever since I was little, I've had curly hair. There were periods of my youth that I distinctly remember not knowing how to style or maintain my curls, so I disliked it even more, especially on days when it was unruly. The thing that was the biggest pain for me was the time it took to get my hair how I wanted. Some days this could be HOURS, depending on if I left it curly or tried to straighten it out.
But over the years, I've discovered a handful of hair products that have helped eliminate out of control frizz, that don't make my hair feel stiff and crunchy and even keeps my curls in tact all day long. It's been trial and error as I'm sure you can imagine, but over time, I've found what works for me and have been able to embrace and love the hair I was given.
Now I won't say I wouldn't trade my curly hair for straight hair (if I could that is), but I will say I've learned to work with what I've got and to be blessed as is. I mean, I can't complain that I can go days without having to wash my hair and it looking dirty and can wear my hair a number of ways because of how thick my it is. So really I just need to remember there are positives to everything, even hair!

Drying your hair with a normal towel can often leave your hair frizzy. The DevaTowel on the other hand is made of microfiber and absorbs just as much water as a terrycloth towel does. I know this isn't really a "hair product" but it is something I've been using for over two years now and feel it works wonders!

Matrix Biolage Hydrasource Mask
I try to let my hair air dry as much as I can but I straighten it quite a bit and use the blow dryer occasionally so I use a hair mask every couple of days to replenish the moisture my hair lost from all the heat. I really like this mask because it leaves my hair feeling silky and helps fight all the frizz. I've already used up this whole bottle and plan to purchase more when I run out of that stuff Will got me.
Scruples Hypershine Repair Spray
When I put heat on my hair, I always make sure to use a repair spray. I get this stuff from my hairdresser and love it. It smells so good and is better then the CHI kind I used to use.
