Living Proof Curls

I got the sample kit of the Living Proof Curls from Sephora and gave it a whirl today. Here are my thoughts:

Curl Conditioning Wash: Was pretty moisturizing, but I had to wash my scalp twice to feel clean.

Curls Detangling Rinse: This was a gel/serum-like consistency. It was kind of odd, but did detangle really well! My hair is normal porosity and normal thickness; I am not sure if it would work as well for someone with coarser hair. After it was rinsed out, my hair still felt pretty moisturized.

Curl Enhancing Mousse: It took about 2 golf ball for my shoulder length hair as the first golf ball seem to disintegrate as a worked it into both palms. At first, it seemed to work well and enhance my wave, but after I diffused it, the waves didn't hold like I wanted it too. Maybe better results would be had when air drying. It did provide decent shine.

Overall, I got more body and a nice shape. Not as defined as I would have liked and more canopy frizz than normal. However, the smell is awful, like super strong palmolive dish soap, and it lingers. I will definitely be washing my hair tomorrow to get rid of the smell.

    The mousse is amazing if you put a hard hold gel over it. OTOH I get as amazing results with Tresemme Perfectly Undone Sea Foam which is hella less expensive. But I really loved the LP Mousse. But try it with a gel on top. I had one of the best hair days ever.

    I like the Curl Detangling Rinse and the Curl Define Styling Cream. The real test will be in humid/high dew point conditions.

    I love this line!! I don't have the mousse, I have the styling cream and love it!!! The styling cream has extra conditioning properties in it, but I still use my restore targeted repair cream. My hair just soaks up product.
