New Hair Product Alert

It’s really pathetic how I could talk about products all day long. People, I am a Power Consumer.

Yesterday, my hair stylist introduced me to Kerastase’s new curly hair products. Now, I’ve read about Kerastase eleventy million times, but even I, the Power Consumer, refuse to pay $60.00 for shampoo and conditioner. She used the entire line on my hair yesterday, including the Oleo-Curl Definition Cream, and good Lord, my curls looked fabulous. Soft, bouncy and perfectly defined. She used a diffuser, but some of the other stylists told me it works just as well when air-drying (which is what this girl likes to hear).

I passed on the shampoo and conditioner, but caved on the definition cream. The smell alone sends me to the most happy place ever. I think you curly girls should try it.

All I know is that my curling iron is silently weeping in the drawer. It doesn’t look like he will see the daylight for many moons to come.

UPDATE: Okay, here’s a photo. My hair isn’t completely dry yet, but you get the picture. All I did was towel-dry, apply a quarter-sized dollop of the definition cream and air-dry. No tools involved.

    I cannot believe it’s possible that a creme would replace a curling iron?!?! really?

    I love the Kerastase products, although since I have pretty straight hair I’ve never used any of their line for curly hair. I have drifted away from their products because of the price, but my hair just isn’t quite the same. I may have to suck it up and go back to them. Oh and if you are ever in Paris the products are considerably less expensive, although once you figure in the airfare it is kind of a wash.

    Hope the curling iron enjoys the break!

    Isn’t it painful when the more expensive products really ARE the best? I’m in the same boat, though… it’s against my religion (um, cheaposity?) to pay that much for shampoo.

    I’m always up for a new product when it comes to my curls. Thanks, chica!

    I’ve had to resort to the Garnier Fructis line, which is *almost* as good as Kerastase, but doesn’t have that delicious smell nor does it make me feel like I have rich girl hair.

    I have all three products. It smells fab and my curls aren’t frizzy and scary in the Atlanta humidity. Not sure the shampoo & conditioner are necessary but the cream rocks.

    Picture!! Need one!

    Great, now I’m going to have to go buy some.

    So these are natural curls it enhances? No curling iron used? Just product, de-fuser and it’s done?

    I just spent an hour on the Keratase website. The video of them applying the products is so convincing. (or maybe I am just a schmuck of a consumer) — either way I am dying to spend the $158 to purchase them all!

    Do you have thoughts on the mist spray?

    My stupid stick-straight hair is crying and wants to play. But I might have to go sniff this stuff anyway when I go product shopping this weekend! If I can’t have curls, at least I can smell nice, right?

    Ooh, I love Kerastasse. I used to use the Oleo Relax line but then I became unemployed and could not afford such fanciness. I’ll have to give this a try though!

    Your hair looks fabulous. My curls and much tighter and frizzier but I may have to try it anyway…

    Good God, it’s not fair that you have hair that GOOD. Lini & Bishop have the genes! Love it.
