In an attempt not to chop all of my hair off for the second time in two years, I’ve been trying new products and no-heat styles. My hair has been super dry recently and unbearable to deal with most days, making visions of grabbing some shears very real. I remembered how Aveda products used to make everything right with my hair a few years ago so, I decided to give them another try.
While at the Aveda store, I saw the Aveda Be Curly line and picked up the conditioner and intensive detangling masque.
I was on my way out of town that weekend so, I needed the products to work some magic (little did I know that it would be the weekend that I got engaged!).
I shampooed my hair with a clarifying shampoo from Shea Moisture, rinsed, then followed up with the Aveda Be Curly conditioner. I let the conditioner sit for about five minutes before rinsing. Next, I applied the Aveda Be Curly Intensive Detangling Masque and stuffed my hair in a plastic grocery bag (don’t judge me, my hair has gotten way too big for a regular shower cap). I sat under a hair dryer for about twenty minutes to give my hair a more intense conditioning treatment.
After rinsing, I really did not know what I wanted to do with my hair. I pinned the back up some kind of way and then set the front of my hair on some flexirods.
I let it dry overnight then took them out the next morning to unleash some cute spirals. Sometimes they are a little too tight of a curl but, they usually fall within a few hours. By the way, a little disclaimer that flexirods are not the most comfortable to sleep in AT ALL but, you have to sacrifice for vanity sometimes.
Review: Overall, I liked the Be Curly products but, they did not leave my hair as moisturized as when I used the Aveda Damage Remedy line. I was still pleased with the end result. I will probably go back to the Damage Remedy line though.
This was the finished product a few days later and the day I got engaged!
