“Banishes frizz for hair that’s smooth as chiffon”
Everyone says they wish they had curly hair….but they mean NICE curly hair. My hair is naturally wavy/curly…sounds like a dream but in reality my hair is a fuzzy, unruly, mad, thick mess!
I’ve tried everything to embrace the curls…mousse, creams, waxes, sprays….they don’t work!
I’ve been toying with the idea of trying the Lee Stafford herE come the CurLs range for a while, seeing as how I seem to love EVERYTHING Lee Stafford. I decided to give the Control Creme a go….and I was pretty impressed!
HOW IT WORKS
This rich calming cream weighs down curls, banishes frizz and separates curls for beautiful definition and hair that’s ‘smooth as Chiffon.’
You use the equivalent of a cherry in the palms of your hands and spread through wet hair, gently twisting with your fingers to form curls.
The look can be repeated the next day using a spritz of water and a little more creme.
Just a note: the texture is quite like the fibre putty type styling creams and it is noticeable when it’s in your hair – as in when you touch it!
HOW I USED IT
I tried the Control Creme in a couple of different ways.
The first was with my Aurora Band. I washed and dried my hair and then ran some of the creme through my ends. I rolled it up in the Aurora Band and went to sleep on it. This is how it looked the next morning:
The second way I used it was after swimming, I put some of the creme in and let it do its natural thing and then I put a couple of structured curls in to the top with my curling wand. That looked like this:
Those curls lasted all day and then I slept on them and I ended up with beachy waves the next day….and this is what I looked like in the late afternoon/evening of day two:
So all you curly haired girls, if you’re looking for a product to tame your unruly hair and help you embrace your natural curls…this may be it! PS. IT SMELLS AMAZING!!!
