Having curly hair is a bit like being a medieval knight - you spend the better part of your adult life on the quest for something holy, magical, and maybe a total myth.
For crusaders, it was a blessed metal cup. For curly girls like me? It's a product that tames your snarls and coils, without surrendering your hair to a flat-iron, a weekly blowout, or a relaxer.
In the Curly Stash of Saviors, there's Potion 9 by Sebastian, Dumb Blonde by Tigi, Moroccan Oil, the entire Curl collection from Bumble & bumble, and now, something else - the Roots of Nature collection from Softsheen-Carson.
Sold at drug stores and online, the shea butter and green tea-infused range uses the natural lubricant and adds paraffin, avocado and sunflower oil, and camellia extract to sooth, soften, and help shape natural curls.
There's a Strengthening Oil Moisturizer, a Deep Masque Treatment, and a leave-in conditioner for mornings with a fast shower. And if you're really hell-bent on straightening out your hair, they have a bottle of Scalp Oil that can also protect your spit-ends from the heat of a flat-iron.
Not that we'd recommend abandoning your roots... or layers, or ends...
