I was sent a few of the products to try out from the Curl Keeper line by Curly Hair Solutions™ which was exciting as I've heard and seen great results.
The Original Curl Keeper I received, Total Control for Frizzy Hair, has a unique water-based consistency and extremely lightweight. This feature allows it to be used daily with no buildup worries and tames unwanted frizz + seals in moisture. I dyed my hair several months ago so my roots have a slightly frizzier texture than the blonde, making it less prone to curl at my finger coils. Honestly, I was skeptical because my hair is accustomed to thicker creams and milks. Nevertheless, I'm constantly looking to experimenting with new products and styles from twist outs, air dry, diffusing and, for this, I successfully did finger coils!
Although I love me some definition, I'm not crazy about keeping every single strand perfectly curly. I like some hold, I find that that it lasts me throughout a week's time so that I don't worry about refreshing daily. The Ultimate Hold gel was perfect for this and did not leave my hair crunchy or flaky whatsoever! With a bit of gel, I usually finger coil the pieces framing my face and some selective frizzy ends; this trick brings out your curls better!
I'm definitely looking to try out the rest of their collection and the styling cream next time around. I had a photoshoot the same afternoon, so after some well-needed air dry time and the magic of wind, here's how my hair came out:
