Curls can be like the best kind of lovers: wild, unpredictable and not quite ready to settle down. To prevent this temperamental nature from turning them disoriented (frizzy) and distant (puffy) one must follow a disciplined routine. From VIOLET GREY’s Frizz-Free Curls file with red-carpet hairstylist Christian Wood (he works with stars like Thandie Newton, Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Richie) come the products necessary to create smooth, shiny curls without a hint of frizz.
Choose two formulas to mix together, like a lightweight styling cream to retain the shape of curls and a dry oil for flyaways; then dry hair with a diffuser.
