|Hate the white flakes. Love the curl definition.|
|CIAB and EVOO. Not as defined, but I like it.|
Sunday morning, my hair was tightly matted to my head a bit and because I wanted to try a wash and go again, I quickly hopped in the shower and applied some Suave Coconut Conditioner to my hair, combed through with my Denman Brush to detangle and rinsed. I left my hair soaking wet and decided to try my Curls in a Bottle. All I can say is wow! It really defined my curls and I love the kind of watery, slippery fill of it. I also felt that it provided a decent amount of moisture and maybe even a little hold.
I did section my hair in two and applied about three medium palm fulls overall, which may have been overload, but I wanted to start with more instead of less. I didn't use any gel on top and simply used a little olive oil and wala! It looked great! Sorry no picture. But I loved that my hair dried soft instead of crunchy, which has been my main concern with wash n gos. Even my bangs looked okay, and they always look straight and weird when I wash n go.
I did by the Curl Junkie Gel to accomapy the Curls in a Bottle, but haven't used to two in combo yet, maybe this weekend. I was planning on wearing my hair out this week, but last night decided to turn the wash n go into a bun. It was surprisingly easy and I only combed out the front and flat twists the hair and used a loose headband to pull the back into a low puff before twisting the bits of hair to make the cinnabun. would be better so I flat twisted the front and did a cinnabun in the back. Since I'm feeling lazy, I'll probably wear the same style tomorrow and redo the bun Wednesday and make it a little higher.
But back to Curls in a Bottle

I'm kinda sad that there are cones in the product, but it really did help keep frizz at bay, which is something I get with glycerin heavy products.
All in all, my review is that it's a great product if you're looking to do a softer wash n go. It defines without the crunch and still made my hair soft and moisturized. It's definitely a keeper.
