This week we are featuring Paul Mitchell’s Curl series! If you have curls, these are the products for you. Unfortunately, curls can get a bad rap. The wild and crazy hair that just wont curl the right way, the too curly or the not curly enough.
And who can forget the dreaded frizz! Well we are here to come out with the truth about curls, and these products will help! To start, lets find out more about the curl.
The Curl :
A Curl is defined as a lock of hair having a spiral or coiled form, or a coil or ringlet of hair according to dictionary.com.
To many with curly hair, you may think that those curls have a mind of their own, but in actuality their anatomy is pretty simple. Your hair has the standard hair follicle, hair shaft, medulla cortex and cuticle. What makes it curly is the cross-section of the hair shaft is more intertwined then those with straight hair. The reason for the frizz and unmanageable characteristics of curls? Well, oils from the sebaceous glads have a harder time traveling down the shaft of curly hair versus straight hair, its much easier for the oils to travel down. That is where our Paul Mitchell products step in! Learn more at WiseGEEK.org
The Shampoo: Spring Loaded De-tangling Shampoo
Starting with this shampoo will help control the frizz and gently cleans your hair without damaging the cuticle of your hair. It is also a conditioner and ultra-moisturizing. Use this as part of your daily routine. This shampoo, standard to all Paul Mitchell products, is sulfate free and not tested on animals.
The Conditioner: Full Circle Leave-In Treatment.
While the shampoo is very moisturizing, every now and then, especially in this dry Colorado weather, hair needs a little extra nourishment. This leave in treatment will hydrate, de-tangle frizz without weighing down your hair. It also prevents damage to your hair. A little tip, after you use this conditioner, rinse with cool water, allowing the cuticle to close and lock in a healthy looking shine!
Well there you have it! There is the truth about curls! The products that will help you prepare your curls to be healthy and look their best.
