I recently heard some forecasters say that curls, waves, and texture are on their way out. My thought: Put down the cellphone and take a good look around. Every time I flip through an editorial, catch a new collection, or get a glimpse of a celebrity, I see one unifying trend –– textured hair. More and more women are embracing their hair’s natural texture and working with it, not against it. Even women with straight hair are now wanting movement and kinks in their locks. And what’s not to love about curls and waves? They can make a dramatic statement or be effortlessly nonchalant. Are you part of the texture revolution?

A family of products specifically designed to be exceedingly kind to waves and curls. My favorite is Curl Enhancer. It helps boost and refine loose curls while moisturizing locks. It’s good for refining soft textures and can add some movement in to straight hair. Apply to damp hair and then gently cup and squeeze curls till dry.
A great tool to use if your hair is straight, wavy, or if you have loose curls. It’s easy to maneuver through hair and makes natural looking waves and curls. Use it to enhance and refine limp curls.
