For the love of hair
The neutral beauties to the colourful unicorns
The straight, curly, frizzy manes
We all want a change from time-to-time
That doesn’t damage our hair
Beauty can be hard to maintain
The neverending releases of new products
The latest must-have hair curler
Or even the cute accessories
It can all become overwhelming
Especially when there’s hype created around a brand
That’s why we turn to one another
For critiques, reviews and discussions of new products
Relying on expert opinions
Hopefully guiding us towards the right path.
When it comes to my hair I tend to be protective, I don’t want to damage it anyway. Hair is fragile, there are many variables that can easily cause damage, from heat exposure to constantly dying it rainbow colours. One thing I adore is pastel hair, lilac to be exact, but I could never bring myself to permanently make a change. I would rather invest (and struggle) in a wig than change my own hair. Besides colours, I also adore curls. My natural hair is a mix between curly and frizzy, I tend to stay away from using curlers, straighteners and blow dryers as continual use leads to heat damage. With my love of curls, I couldn’t resist trying the Flower Curl*, the brand kindly gifted me a set.
A no-heat, overnight product, one thing I wondered was how long would the curls actually last, so as the title suggests, I put the Flower Curl to the test.
Before beginning, I added macadamia oil to my hair to make it less dry and for its known healing properties. Following the tutorial, I tied my hair in a high ponytail, sectioned it into four pieces and began wrapping each segment. Making sure it stayed in place, I used three hairpins for one section as the tutorial suggested. With the remaining hairpins added where pieces of hair looked lose or for general support. The whole process was easy, the Flower Curl was surprisingly comfortable and light-weight. When I woke up the following morning, I couldn’t wait to see the results, I began unravelling my hair. To my surprise, my hair was in tight ringlets, after shaking it to an appropriate length, it looked beautiful and lasted the whole day.
Overall, the Flower Curl did produce the results, however, for my hair frizzy hair, it didn’t have the typical smoothness or shine when curler at the hairdressers. Perhaps experimenting with other hair products, may resolve this issue. For those who want to achieve a curly hairstyle with no heat damage, I highly recommend using the Flower Curl. For me personally, I need to invest in no-frizz products are re-try the Flower Curl, otherwise, I’ll stick to my local hairdresser for any curling needs.
