Show Your Curls Some Love With These Brands

Jun. 28
Let’s be honest, having curls is a constant love-hate relationship. When they look good, damn they look good. But when they don’t, it can be a mess. The word curls itself can mean so many different things. It could mean waves, kinky curls, tight curls or loose curls. But one thing all curls should have in common? They’ve got to have bounce, have definition and look smooth. Here are a few essentials that can make that happen, and that your curls will adore!
Living Proof:
You may have heard of Living Proof because it’s co-owned by Jennifer Aniston. But what makes them a stunning hair care brand is that they pioneered silicon-free products that originated from MIT. They’re rooted in a whole lot of science, and their customers are living proof (hence the name), they’ve garnered a significant following cause their stuff really works!
When it comes to curls, flyaways are inevitable. Frizz can seriously get in the way of a polished look, so reach for this Intense Moisture Mask. It deeply conditions and creates a protective layer that reduces friction. All without weighing it down! It even keeps your hair cleaner for longer, that’s a win in my books!
Morrocan Oil:
This iconic brand is known for its oil-infused products that nourish your body and hair. When it comes to styling and conditioning, they’ve made a name for themselves by providing products that create long-lasting effects. This year, they celebrate 10 years!
When it comes to curls, they make them way more manageable. Their Curl Defining Cream paves the way for a natural-looking bouncy and frizz-free look, while their Intense Curl Cream provides styling with a side of hydration. Each infused with their signature Argon oil, it gives your hair a hit of vitamin E, essential fatty acids and antioxidants.
Virtue’s story may sound like something out of a sci-fi flick, but the results speak for themselves. Using Alpha Keratin which is extracted from ethically-sourced human hair, the brand discovered that this protein makes hair stronger, healthier and shinier. It can even repair severely damaged hair!
If that doesn’t convince you, try their Recovery Shampoo for yourself. Whether your curls are natural or not, it may have been put through its paces, this shampoo helps manage breakage and delivers more bounce. Its formulated to fill in any damaged strands of hair and feeds it vital nutrients. If you’re experiencing any damage from using curlers, coloring or chemicals, get on this ASAP!
This Swedish brand was created by two international hairdressers who happen to be best friends. They are dedicated to helping create healthy, strong hair with straight forward formulas, with a side of luxury. Described as true craftsmen by their clientele, their results are immediate!
When you’re in a hurry, spritz in this light, oil-free Leave-In Conditioner to give your curls and scalp some weightless moisturization. By simply massaging it out it helps detangle fine hair and gives your mane a bit of volume. For a more pampering experience, go for the Curl Treatment, which offers a softness, shine and a defined movable finish.
Drybar’s concept is simple: a good blow out. They don’t offer cuts, or coloring, just that. With over 100 salons over the US and Canada, they are the experts in a good blow-dried look. Founder, Alli Webb is a curly-haired girl herself, so you know she knows her stuff.
If you’ve got curls and you’re not drying your hair with a diffuser, you’re definitely missing out on maximum curl potential. Pop this on the end of your hairdryer and your curls will be treated to a whole new luster, bounce and volume. People love this Bouncer Diffuser because it dries your hair fast and brings a full load of definition.
If you’re always reaching for the tongs or crimper, give their Hot Toddy Heat Protectant Mist a go. It’s no secret that exposing your hair to high temperatures regularly will dry it out and make it dull. This ultra-lightweight spray will protect your locks from curling and styling irons up to 450°F and leave it with a smooth finish.
Remember, hair is just like skin and can be incredibly temperamental when it comes to a change in diet, weather or even mood. More often than not, you’ll have to end up trying a range of products to keep up with it. My ongoing quest to keep my curls in shape and healthy continues, so drop your favorite curl-related products below!

Thank you Cherie!!
Thank you Cherie!!
I wanted to wait a while to really get a good feel for these products and oh. My. Gosh. My skin has never felt so smooth!! I’ve always been really bad about moisturizing my WHOLE body, not just m6y face, but getting all of this in the mail made me so excited to try it and I can’t stop using them!! They are all fairly thick in formula, but they absorb so nicely into the skin that you don’t even notice it after it soaks in. None of it leaves me feeling slick and greasy, just smooth and moisturized!! I use the flamingo - flamingo Deep Nourishing Cream after my shower along with flamingo - Light Hydrating Spray and then on the in between days I use flamingo - flamingo Daily Moisturizing Lotion because my legs tend to get very very dry. I love these products, and how affordable they are! So thank you Cherie for introducing this wonderful trio!!
Best Hyaluronic acid on the market!! 🍑😍
Best Hyaluronic acid on the market!! 🍑😍
I recently won this Plum Plump Hyaluronic serum by Glowrecipe in @cherie New Beauty Buys Giveaway!! ❤️ GLOW RECIPE - Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Serum I am a huge fan of Hyaluronic acids especially for Oily/Acne prone skin types and dehydrated skin. Hyaluronic acid. To the less beauty savvy, it may sound like something you don't want to put anywhere near your face (we all took chemistry lessons at school, just sayin...). But, what if we told you that hyaluronic acid actually holds the key to smooth, flawless and hydrated skin? Yes. It's actually a gooey substance that's naturally produced in our skin mainly in skin tissues and eye area which works as humectant meaning it draws moisture from surrounding into the skin and helps it retain the moisture by eliminating Trans epidermal water loss!! It's truly amazing and works at targeting many skin concerns mainly aging, dehydration and dullness and if used correctly it gives you that healthy plump looking skin. 🍑Now, What is this product?? Combined with vegan collagen and vegan silk protein, this lightweight, oil-free serum deeply hydrates dry, dehydrated skin and diminishes the appearance of visible fine lines for healthy, bouncy, youthful skin. 🍑 Key Ingredients: ✨Plum (3 types): Three antioxidant-rich plums - Kakadu, Illawarra, and Burdekin - hydrate, nourish, and rejuvenate skin instantly and overtime, and work together with hyaluronic acid for intense, juicy hydration and a youthful appearance. ✨Hyaluronic Acid (5 weights) A powerful blend of multi-weight hyaluronic acids (ultra-low, low, medium, high, ultra-high molecular weights) that deeply hydrates layers of skin for plump, bouncy skin. Multi HA has multiple molecular weights in one ingredient, and forms a 3-D sponge like film to hydrate each layer of your skin Tremella HA is obtained from fermentation of Tremella mushroom and is super high molecular level to reduce moisture loss on your skin’s surface Flashfill HA is a next-gen of HA that improves the bioavailability of the Hyaluronic Acid in the skin and lasts longer in the skin Bio HA is a powerful HA with moisturizing properties to help water retention ✨ Vegan Collagen & Silk Protein Potent, plant-based powerhouse ingredients that help support a healthy-looking skin barrier by guarding against free radicals and hydrating skin. ✨Vitamin B5 Helps to repair skin by hydrating, soothing, and rejuvenating, resulting in a healthy skin barrier. This serum performs so well on skin, it's not so sticky yet enough sticky to work as a good primer under makeup. It has made my skin look plumper and youthful in just two uses! I am using it consistently to see how my skin responds to it and I love it so far! As mentioned above, its silky formula and texture makes it really unique for a good 5 weight HA serum! Have you tried this serum??
This is a peeling gel 😱 Looks like a cleanser
This is a peeling gel 😱 Looks like a cleanser
I got this intriguing product Cure Natural Aqua Gel in @cherie Creator box!! Cure - Natural Aqua Gel At first glance I thought it's a gel cleanser, Then I did some digging and found out it's infact a gentle peeling gel which pumps out as very liquidy gel on hand and when you rub into you skin it strts to peel similar to Wishful Yo glow enzyme scrub!! ✨ ✨WHAT IS IT? Natural Aqua Gel gently catches dead skin cells on the surface of the skin and removes them without using strong acids. It helps skin metabolism function better. There is no need to rub or scrub your skin hard and you will be surprised at how smooth your skin has become. ✨ HOW TO USE: Wash your face as you normally would. Dry off completely. Pump the nozzle 3 to 5 times to obtain the appropriate amount of gel onto your fingertips and apply to the desired area. Leave on skin for a few moments allowing Cure to react with the dead skin cells. Gently massage in a circular motion for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Do not rub too hard. The gel will turn into a milky white color, and beads of dead skin cells can be seen as they are lifted off the skin. Rinse well with water and then follow your regular skincare routine. For best results, use Natural Aqua Gel twice a week. Natural Aqua Gel can be used on other parts of the body such as hands, elbow, neck and knees. ✨ KEY INGREDIENTS: - Activated Hydrogen Water: helps maximize skin's energy conversion rate and has anti-oxidant properties. - Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract: preserves moisture and improves skin's resiliency. - Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract: helps prevent blemishes and freckles. It also helps skin retain moisture. - Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract: has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. ✨MY THOUGHTS AND EXPERIENCE: - Unlike other peeling gels it's very gentle on skin - It smells like alcohol so beware of that strong smell - My skin felt a lot smoother and glowy afterwards - It also brightened skin a little bit just with one use - With continued use, it made my skin glow even more and brightened dramatically - This also helped a little bit with existing acne or breakouts - Scars also start to fade a little bit due to exfoliation - The bottle is decently huge so you get a lot of amount for 38$ which should last me for weeks - I think this unique consistency for a peeling gel or physical exfoliator makes this product a stand out! Also, I really appreciate K-beauty products for such technological advancements in skincare formulations. - It's very very gentle on skin and my dkin didn't get irritated at all - I really liked this product and so far I think I'm going to repurchase this 😍✨ ✨ IS IT WORTH 38$: Yes! Absolutely! The results I saw with this are so unique and make it worth the price! It's also a very gentle form of extra step in your cleansing routine!
