Prepping Curly Locks

As I've mentioned in my previous entry, curly locks needs extra prepping. So here's what I use to keep my curls intact, soft and bouncy.

First, I changed my shampoo and conditioner to Sunsilk Style curls and wave bounce.

With beeswax and curl energizers to giv permed hair a well defined and bouncy curls and waves.


A little hard to find on stores, always out of stock. Nweys, these smells sweet, and makes hair soft. I tried these sans other styling products, the result is big curls like those of beach babes.


A bodifying aqua-mousse. Gives root-lift, volume while keeping it light. With Incell and pearl proteins to repair and reinforce sensitized hair fibers while Vitamin E acetate protects hair.

Really good in holding small curls. Hair feels light but a little stiff, no wet look here. gives natural finish on hair.

NOTE: I just put it on curls (end) if I want a loose curls otherwise smother it on entire hair, root to tips to achieve super curly hair Taylor Swift style.



I choose this coz my hair is colored as well, I put this prior the mousse to lend a healthy radiance to my hair. I use a lot to achieve wet look, less puffy and small super tight curls. True to claim it does prevent hair from static and freeze. I think this is necessary coz I tried using mousse alone, the result - curls intact, freezy big hair - that's only good for casual days like, mall, beach etc. but for office, I need to tame down the volume.

So there its 2 additional routine as compared to my wash and wear straight hair, but its all worth it.

My curls

Been sporting medium to long straight hair for more than ten years. So I opted for a change. Here's how my hair looks the night before my perm

My new curls,. I had it digipermed at Simon Kim salon. Why him? It's cheaper there compared to other korean salons,. tehhee,.

Two weeks after... (pardon the dark spots, just had my warts removal)

Three weeks after,.
Everyday is like different curl style,. depends on how i scrunch and twist it, or whether I comb my hair or not.

What I love with curl do, is that i dont have to comb my hair the entire day. My friends knows me well for not combing my hair throughout the day, so this complements me. Special care is needed for curl do, it may be wash and wear, but prepping time takes longer, I think I'll make a separate post about that. Hair tends to freeze so anti-freeze serum is a must,. But over all I love it! shorter hair indeed, but is suits the hot weather nowadays..

A last look of my long locks,. it will be missed,. tehhee,..
