So many of my clients ask me what my favorite products are and how to use them. I spend the time to carefully educate them that not all curls are equal.. what works for Classic, Tight or Wavy sometimes will not always work for Loose, Kinky or Coiled. Understanding your curl pattern, health and texture will help guide you through the abundance of different products out there. But, I do have a few of my favorites that my clients and I LOVE and they work with most curly hair types.
Shampoo/Cleansers–my two favorites

Curl Description: Classic/Tight/Wavy/Loose
for flawless frizz free curls be sure to get Ouidad Climate Control Gel but don’t just scrunch it in take the time before leaving the shower and remove excess water so hair is damp. Apply a quarter size on ends first then a dime size throughout. Use a wide tooth comb and start at the ends, combing product throughout to fully saturate. From side to side lightly scrunch up & down then air dry or diffuse.
Treatments- Two Favorites:

This hair treatment is great for all hair types it completely repairs as its formula rebuilds lost protein. It absorbs throughout the cuticle instantly to fill gaps & prevent your curls from dehydration. Infuses protein back into the weakened hair shaft.
