It took me 20 something years to get hold of styling my crazy, curly hair. And even today it’s a work in progress as I hunt for the latest products for my hair texture. My current love? The Free Your Mane haircare line of hydrating, restorative products for curly tresses.
Here’s my take on two of their top-selling products.
Free Your Mane Baobab Brilliant Restorative Hair Oil
I L-O-V-E this product. In fact, I am now completely obsessed with it. The whole point of the brilliant restorative hair oil is to protect your hair from harsh environmental factors, heat damage and over-processing. For a gal who has put her curls through all kinds of torturous heat styling methods, Free Your Mane’s restorative hair oil is a miracle worker.
With this product, I noticed an almost instantaneous change in my curls. After working it through my wet hair, the strands felt velvety smooth and had a lustrous glow. Whether I’m wearing my hair curly, wavy or stick-straight, the oil helps keep frizz to an absolute minimum. (As a side note, I’ve read that it works great on extensions, too!)
Free Your Mane Daily Detangling Conditioner
The Free Your Mane Daily Detangling Conditioner is formulated paraben-free and is a very hydrating and nourishing conditioner for course, thick or unmanageable curly hair. After about two weeks of using the product, I noticed visibly smoother and softer hair. My curls were less frizzy and more defined with just the right amount of shine.
Even when opting for a straight style, the styling process was easier and the final look more sleek. The only thing I would say that I wasn’t crazy about was the conditioner’s smell. It’s got a man’s cologne scent to it. So, there’s nothing wrong with the scent, just took me some time to get used to it.
