I was in college when I had curls for the first time. I just tried it and somehow I got to manage it for six months. The second time that I had curls were three years ago and it lasted for eight months. My friends kept on telling me that curls suit me well. So before the year ended, I finally had digital perm. I bought a Tony and Jackey voucher from Metrodeal which was 3,000 php instead of the regular price of 6,000 php.
It was done only in two hours and so far, I’m enjoying my curls. No need to comb my crowning glory. Every day is like, “I woke up like this” moment!
If you are planning to attempt a digital perm and you also want to have a new look this 2017, I’m recommending the products that I’ve been using which can also help you to maintain your curls for quite awhile.
*SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER*
Avoid applying the ‘regular’ shampoo and conditioners that have been with you for quite sometime.Look for brands that have all-natural ingredients, no harmful chemicals. Human Nature is proudly Filipino brand that you can check out.
For my shampoo, I pick Human Nature Cool Peppermint with CreamFoam (129.75 php). It is for strengthening hair which help reduce hair fall and leaving the scalp healthier. I like how it refreshes my hair and the cooling sensation that you can actually feel afterwards.
I choose Human Nature Mandarin Fresh Natural Conditioner (149.75 php) because of its smell. I’m not into fruity type scents, but this one I cannot resist. It moisturizes and deeply condition dry and rough hair.
I will try the other variants of Human Nature products after I emptied these two bottles soon.
~HAIR LOTION, SPRAY AND OIL~
Curls would not last long if you only rely with Shampoo and Conditioner. When I first had my curls, I was advised to use Mousse. I was okay with it, but then I felt my hair was heavy every time I applied it.
This time around I stick with products that can flaunt my curls naturally.
My every other day use: Monea Curl Defining Milk Lotion (99.75 php) and Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil (299.75 php)
I don’t apply this two in one day. I preferred to have the Curling Lotion today, then the Sunflower Oil for tomorrow. Why should I not use only one from these two? I tried and tested these two and it works well for my hair.
Monea Curl Defining Milk Lotion is affordable and is not sticky to apply with the curl ends. If you are quite in budget, you can go to the small bottle which costs around 60 php. It gives life to my curls without costing too much!
True to its promise, Human Nature Sunflower Beauty Oil is a best seller that gives a superb result. Believe me when I read an article about a blogger that she used beauty oil with curls, I was taken aback. I was hesitant to purchase one but I ended up convincing myself I have nothing to lose just in case it would not be effective on my hair because I can still use it on the other parts of my body. I fell in love with my curls more with this sunflower oil. My crowning glory becomes shinier and healthier thanks to the miracle oil.
Other products that I found good with my curls are: Snoe Hair Heroes Super Fresh Texturizing Beach Waves (300 php) and Beach Born Sea Salt Spray (200 php)
There are days that I feel like I don’t have curls. I usually have Snoe Hair Heroes to save the day! After my digital perm treatment, I was advised not to wet my hair. Good thing I have this Hair Heroes, which not only smells absolutely great, it reminds me that I have gorgeous curls! A little bit pricey though for its bottle size, but who cares if you like the outcome, right?
I purchased this Beach Born Sea Salt Spray last week because I’ve been reading amazing reviews about this. If you are quite sensitive with odorous items, this sea salt spray doesn’t have smell at all. I tested it twice with my curls but I haven’t seen an effect yet. However, I asked one of my colleagues to apply it to her damp hair. She sprayed it, then bun, her hair and after awhile she loved the instant bouncy curls! She even asked me to use it next time, which I happily said yes. I guess this works better with straight hair, but I will still use it with my curls.
How about you? Do you have a new hair style look this 2017? I hope you can also share your secret products to me.
