PSA for my lovelies with curly hair.

So, I went so long not knowing how to look after my curls and how to make them pretty that I hated them and always put them up or straightened them. So, I thought why not share what I’ve learned.

  1. Use a cotton shirt or a microfiber towel instead of your usual towel (Your hair will be less frizzy and less dry)
  2. Only shampoo your scalp or go the “no-poo” method. (Shampooing all over your head drys your hair out and can ruin your curls)
  3. Only use conditioner on your ends (Putting it all over your hair flattens it)
  4. Only comb your hair when your in the shower, when you put conditioner in (Combing after your shower ruins your curl pattern or combing when your hair is dry will make your hair poofy)
  5. Do not use brushes. Brushes are damaging to curly hair. Finger-comb or use a wide-toothed comb instead. 
  6. Try to blow dry your hair as little as possible, the best thing for curls is to air dry but if you’re in a hurry use a diffuser which minimizes frizz by evenly distributing the heat.
  7. If you have frizz issues get a Frizz cream but don’t overuse it or your hair will be hard, sticky or just gross.
  8. If you can afford it (as it can be expensive) try to not use products with  Silicates, Silicone’s or Sulfates. If you can’t avoid them try to only get Moisturizing/hydrating shampoo and conditioners 
  9. If possible get a satin pillowcase, scarf or cap to put over your hair while you sleep to help keep your curls intact and less frizzy.
  10. Wait till your hair is 100% dry before going to sleep or you WILL ruin your curls. 
  11. Don’t put your hair up in a wrap/towel turban after you wash your hair as it wrecks your natural curl pattern. Instead, wring your hair out over the tub then do the scrunch and squeeze method to get out more water while encouraging your curls. Then use a cotton shirt or microfiber towel to scrunch your hair more.
  12. Get layers in your haircuts the more layers the more bouncy and curly your hair will be, the fewer layers to the more weighed down and less curly your hair will be. 
  13. Do not wash your hair every day, Curly hair tends to be naturally dry and this is damaging. I personally wash mine every 3-4 days and it works for me. 
  14. When your hair is wet is the best time to do anything to it. Once curly hair is dry there is no changing it.
  15. Avoid products with alcohol as they are very drying. 
  16. Don’t use heat. (I haven’t used heat in my hair in 4-5 months and my hair is doing so much better)
  17. Try the pineapple method when going to sleep. Gather all your curls into a loose ponytail at the top of your head. (I recommend not doing this tell you absolutely gonna lay down and go to bed cause for me, I get a headache from sitting up with it.

7 Super Awesome Vegan & Cruelty-Free Beauty products (click bolded titles for links)

1. 8 USA Made Vegan Bath Bombs Kit (Pictured)

Top Review:  “I bought these for my girlfriend as a graduation gift and she said they were better than Lush bath bombs that cost a minimum of $5-7 each. She said the aromatic smells of these were amazing and would definitely buy them again! She has incredibly sensitive skin and is allergic to so many soaps, chemicals, and foods, but these didn’t make her break out in hives or irritate her skin, she loved them!”

2. Acure Ultra-hydrating shampoo and conditioner

Top Review: “I have to say that I love this shampoo and conditioner…It was very deceiving at first because when you rinse your hair after shampooing it feels dry, but after letting your hair air dry it feels soft and looks shiny?!?! other companies put chemicals in their products to make you think that your hair is in better conditions, but its actually just coating it with a layer of silicones and stripping it of its natural oils. My hair feels much healthier and I will be purchasing again! Thank you acure!!” 

3. Manic Panic Flash Lightning Hair Bleach Kit 40 Volume

Top Review:  “I love it. Use on the tips of my hair and i only leave it for 20 minutes max. Deep condition the absolute sh*t out of my hair after took 2 tries to make my tips the color I desired. Spaced out the process”

4. Manic Panic Vampire Red Hair Dye

Top Review: “I love love love manic panic! It’s easy and simple to use. I had bleach blonde hair before applying the color. I mixed Voodoo Blue and Enchanted Forest to acheive a dark teal. I absolutely love it and have gotten tons of complements!”

5. Dr. Bronner’s Pure-Castile Liquid Soap - Peppermint

Top Review: “…I use this soap for shampoo, body wash, face wash, I put it in my bath, I’ve used it to clean my counters, I’ve used it to clean dishes. The peppermint is my favorite, especially for soaking in the bath because it tingles and it’s the best scented in my opinion, also for shampoo, again because it tingles…”

6. Kiss My Face Face Factor Sunscreen SPF 30 Sunblock for Face and Neck

Top Review: “This sunscreen is perfect. Absorbs well, scent is not overpowering, and- most importantly of all- It leaves no white residue on my face! I am a fairly dark african american and this has been a a long-time problem for me. If you are worried at all about white residue hiding your lovely skin color, don’t be.”

7. ACURE Ultra-Hydrating Body Lotion

Top Review: “I love this lotion. I have so much to say about it! First of all its awesome i have super dry skin, and this keeps it from being itchy and dry all day, i don’t usually have to reapply. My father who has a really nasty dry skin condition, where his leg literally look like they have barnacles growing on them. and so I have him this because i couldn’t keep going out to dinner or having him walk around flaking his leg barnacles everywhere… imma throw up. anyway, i got him this cream and gave him a speech about moisturizing and how important it is and how gross his legs look and he’d be doing everyone a service. so he started moisturizing and THE BARNACLES ARE GONE!!! i wish i took pictures but you’d all have nightmares. so you’re welcome.”


SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo and Hair Masque 

Back in October, I hit up my local Target and noticed that SheaMoisture had a new line. Since my other shampoo (SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo) was running low and expired (yes, I know!), I had to get a new shampoo and thought I’d try this one. I also got the masque. 

The scent: I would say that there is a fig-scented, brown sugar aroma–which I absolutely love. If you’re a fan of earthy scents, then this is for you. You can also smell the honey, but it isn’t overbearing. 

Key ingredients (according to the product labels):

  • Manuka Honey: contains anti-inflammatory properties that soothe the scalp. Helps create a moisturizing barrier.
  • Mafura Oil: contains high levels of beneficial oleic acid. Helps replenish oils stripped from hair.
  • African Rock Fig: contains antioxidant Vitamin C, which helps keep hair looking vibrant.

The Intensive Hydration Shampoo: As always, I diluted the shampoo with apple cider vinegar and water, but made sure I had higher concentrations of the shampoo to actually test the product. Interestingly enough, I was able to do a bit of finger detangling in the shower with this shampoo when I cleansed my hair. This shampoo also left my hair very moisturised–even more so than the Moisture Retention Shampoo, which sometimes left my hair feeling dry if I used to much of it. 

The Intensive Hydration Hair Masque: One of the best conditioners I have ever tried hands down. The conditioner has a super thick and creamy consistency. I massaged it between my fingers and there was so much slip, so naturally, I was really excited to see how it would work for my hair. Although I considered using the conditioner straight out of the container, I decided to add EVOO and avocado oil to the mix and a few drops of rosemary essential oil. Then I worked the masque generously into my thick hair. I left it in for an hour and when I hopped in the shower, I noticed just how easy it was to remove the tangles and shedding that I didn’t get during my detangling session the night before. My fingers literally glided through my strands under the stream of water. Also, my kinky, coarse hair literally felt like butter! It was so smooth and soft.

Overall, the shampoo and the hair masque are definitely keepers. I was in HEAVEN as I was washing and conditioning my hair today. If you choose not to get the shampoo,  please look into getting the hair masque–it works wonders for kinky hair. I’m so happy with my purchases! With the combination of the three ingredients plus gylcerin, shea butter, and aloe vera juice–these will be my fall and winter staples! :-) 

15 Worst Shampoos

Of all the hair care products in your shower, your shampoo is a nonnegotiable necessity. We all need a good lather to wash out the grime after a run or after we’ve employed multiple styling products. But a great shampoo should not only leave our hair soft, clean and smelling delightful, it should also help cut down post-shower styling time by priming strands for our desired style of the day. 

But when the shampoo we choose to use ends up dirtying our hair instead of cleaning it, and dries it out instead of infusing it with the moisture we need – that’s when it ends up on our worst shampoos list. 

No. 15: TRESemme Vitamin B12 & Gelatin Anti-Breakage Shampoo, $3.84TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 6*
Why: Readers say, “This shampoo (with its matching conditioner) actually seemed to dry my hair out even more. You’d think that a product that’s supposed to inhibit breakage would help moisturize the hair, but this really didn’t at all. In addition, my hair felt like it had an odd ‘plastic-y’ coat on it that made it feel heavy. I’m guessing that’s from the gelatin. I don’t recommend this at all.” Another says, “It left my hair feeling waxy (from the gelatin in it) and dry. The smell and the price was great, but not worth going back to purchase more." 

No. 14: Matrix Amplify Volumizing Shampoo, $18TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.9*
Why: One reader says, "I have a lot of hair, but it’s fine, so the girl told me [this product] would give me volume. I saw no volume and it left a buildup on my hair, which I did not like – and it even says on the bottle [that] it won’t leave buildup.” Another says, “this shampoo is awful. It smells good, but totally stripped the color from my hair and didn’t really add much volume at all.” And one reviewer says, “This product didn’t give my hair any extra volume. In fact, I think it became more flat after using this shampoo and conditioner. It smells nice, but doesn’t do anything for my thin, flat hair.”

No. 13: Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Moisturizing Shampoo, $7.50TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.8*
Why: Readers say this shampoo “leaves hair sticky, greasy and lifeless.” One explains, “'Ugh’ is all I have to say about this shampoo. All you get is scent but little else. I ended up using mine for shaving my legs. Not worth the hype or the price.” Another agrees saying, “this smells lovely in the bottle, but I find the scent does not last on my hair. I also find that it makes my hair more unmanageable than my usual shampoo but it costs more.” And one reader says, “as something that’s supposed to moisturize, this shampoo fails utterly. It actually stripped my hair of moisture, leaving me with dull, rough-looking hair." 

No. 12: Burt’s Bees Rosemary Mint Shampoo Bar, $6TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.6*
Why: "Not only did it NOT clean my hair, [this shampoo] dried it to a Brillo pad. It’s an item to bring with you on a camping trip, I suppose, but not if you intend on combing out your hair afterward. I had to reenter the shower and use half a bottle of conditioner to get my hair somewhat approachable,” says a reader. Others complain about the lack of suds saying, “I had to use a lot of this to get some kind of lather in my long hair [and] it still didn’t get my hair very clean.” Another agrees saying, “it was pretty difficult to get enough lather to completely get my hair clean, and I ended up in the shower for way longer than I wanted to be.”

No. 11: John Frieda Radiant Red Color Captivating Daily Shampoo, $6.49TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.5*
Why: "This has to be one of the worst shampoos I have ever used,“ says a reader. "Not only did it make my hair greasy and tangled, but it also did not seem to be preserving my color at all. I even used it with other products in the line: the conditioner, the color enhancing cream, etc. and all it did was stain my fingernails and towels red.” One reader says, “the first (and last time) I used it my hair turned a maroon color.” And another says, “after one shampoo my white towel was red from the color this shampoo stripped." 

No. 10: TRESemme ColorThrive Brunette Shampoo, $5.99TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.4*
Why: Readers say, "this did nothing for my color. It didn’t help it last longer or brighten it and it worked so-so in terms of cleansing.” Another reader says, “At first I really liked this shampoo, but maybe after three times of using it, my scalp was itchy. And I’m not allergic to any shampoos.” And one woman simply warns, “beware." 

No. 9: Head and Shoulders Refresh 2 in 1, $5.99TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.4*
Why: One woman says she "thought my hair was going to fall out” after using this product. And another says, “it burns my scalp and got in my eye – you don’t want to know what that feels like.” One reader says, “this bottle got tossed in the trash before my hair was dry. I’d rather live with the dandruff than to ever put myself through that again. I had a minor out-break of dandruff and, of course, decided on the one and only dandruff shampoo that I’ve known since the '70s. Never again. The burn that penetrated my scalp was painful and I could feel the texture of my hair disintegrate in my hands.”

No. 8: Aveda Clove Shampoo, $29.50TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.3*
Why: This product “smells great but doesn’t do anything for color depositing like the name suggests,” says a reader. Another reader says, it “doesn’t really act as a coloring agent. If you use this in the shower, as most people do, prepare for a lot of brown residue on places other than [your] hair.” Overall, readers say it “left my hair frizzy and stripped,” and is “way too expensive for shampoo." 

No. 7: TIGI Bed Head Self Absorbed Shampoo, $10.93TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.1*
Why: One reader says, "this shampoo is no better than any drugstore brand. The smell is too chemical-y

No. 6: TIGI Bed Head Moisture Maniac Shampoo, $10.93TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 5.1*
Why: Readers say, "this did nothing for my hair other than make it feel greasy and weighed down. I wouldn’t recommend it!” One woman says, “wonderful smell, average product.” Another agrees saying, “my hair smelled great after using this, but it wasn’t very moisturized.” Another says it left her hair “with an oily residue” and one person says the “name is misleading. Although this shampoo smells great, it does not offer enough moisturization for my dry, breakable hair." 

No. 5: Alterna Ten Shampoo, $60TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 4.9*
Why: Readers say this product has an "outrageous price” and is “not worth it at all.” One says, “this shampoo is definitely not worth the price [as] it made my hair feel very heavy and flat.” Another user had a similar experience saying, “I used a small amount of the shampoo like it said to and my hair ended up limp, lifeless and full of static. My hair was impossible to style – no body and wouldn’t hold a curl for anything." 

No. 4: Burt’s Bees More Moisture Raspberry & Brazil Nut Shampoo, $8TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 4.9*
Why: One reader says, "this shampoo smells great but doesn’t do much for my thick, coarse hair,” and it leaves another reader’s fine hair feeling “waxy.” Another woman says this product “made my hair a matted mess! It made my hair drier than it was to begin with [and] the smell is sickening. FAIL!” One user says, she “was amazed how terrible it was. Within two days of purchasing it I threw it out. My hair felt greasy, matted and all around dirty.” Another says she “hated the smell” so much that “it was so hard to get past it. It smelled sour and rancid.”

No. 3: Bumble and bumble Seaweed Shampoo, $18TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 4.5*
Why: Readers say, “I heard about Bumble and bumble and thought I would give it a try. I was not impressed at all. I have fine hair and by the end of the day it was greasy and flat.” Another says, “I was really disappointed with this shampoo, especially considering how much I paid for it! Didn’t do anything special to my hair and it didn’t even smell good. The only thing that it did do was clean my hair, but so can a 99 cent bottle of Suave. Never again!” And one woman says, “I’d only use this to wash a dog I didn’t like." 

No. 2: Samy Smooth Shampoo, $6.49TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 3.3*
Why: One reader says, "this is an awful product, and the words I uttered in the shower while using it aren’t the kind of words to use here. Where do I start? The back of the bottle should say, 'remember, you get what you pay for.’ Sticky? Yes. Foul odor? Yup. Causes knots, tangles and unbrushable hair? Yup. Will conditioner fix this problem? Nope … no way.” And another says, “this shampoo made my hair heavy, dry and just horrible! I used it once then washed my dog with it." 

No. 1: Biosilk Hydrating Shampoo, $28.99TotalBeauty.com average member rating: 3.3*
Why: One reader describes her experience with this product as "one bottle, three people and a trash can.” Translation: “My roommate gave this to me with no explanation and I was stoked. I kept using it even though it barely lathered and left my poor hair stripped of all moisture and impossible to style. Finally I gave it to my sister, thinking it would work better [for her]. She used it once and threw it out.” Another reader also “really wanted to like this” and thought “maybe a fifth or sixth attempt may 'improve’ the hair,” but alas she continued to be left with “a greasy scalp by the end of the night, lifeless tired roots, and dirty hair that needed to be rewashed.”

Need to prime, extend, shampoo, or hydrate? There’s a spray for that.

Forget your grandma’s mists from the days of yore. Technology has come a long way from heavy fragrances, stiffening hair sprays, and streaky self-tanners. In fact, the spray format has never been more desirable. For example, a mist foundation’s super-fine particle size can deliver a more refined application for a flawless finish. Additionally, it can be a much less messy experience (no fingers needed!), while offering convenience on the go. Below, we detail the most important questions to ask when developing new spray-based beauty products—and why misting is a must.  KATE HELFRICH, SENIOR PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR OF SEPHORA COLLECTION

Sprays come in all sorts of intensities. Fine ones suit facial hydrators better, while heavier ones serve products like body bronzers better.

An aerosol-based formula enables a long continuous spray. On the other hand, a pump mechanism dispenses short bursts of product, so they’re best for products like fragrance, which you want to apply sparingly.

Some mists have a restricted valve for targeted application, ideal for spray foundations used on the face. For all-over body coverage, like that needed for a spray sunscreen, a wider spray is optimal to allow a more generous application.

In addition to the more traditional, wet-spray technologies, we now have newer, dry technologies. These facilitate innovative products, such as dry shampoo, which both cuts your prep time and soaks up excess oil thanks to powdery (not slick) bases.

PRO TIP:  Sure, you can apply makeup mists directly on your face, but did you know you can also use a brush? Not only does a mist provide an even application when sprayed directly on skin, but it also distributes the perfect amount of product when sprayed onto sponges and brushes, giving you a little bit more control.

For a flawless look, this airbrush foundation is a must. The weightless formula delivers a seamless satin finish due to its ultra-fine mist. Who wouldn’t want that?

SEPHORA COLLECTION Tinted Self-Tanning Body Mist

Supergoop! Antioxidant-Infused Sunscreen Mist

Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist
This mist protects hair from the heat damage caused by styling tools, while adding amazing shine. The best part? The scent is to die for.



No, the next best thing to come out of Austin isn’t BBQ—it’s a lovely new hair care brand.

As much as we’d love for our bedhead to look sleek and polished, the truth is, our hair requires maintenance—it’s something we “do” or “get done.” So, it makes sense that the latest hair care line to impress us has named itself after the action-oriented word, Verb. The Austin-based brand that prides itself on using naturally based ingredients (like quinoa and sunflower seed oil) and selling at an approachable $14 price point. It’s also the brainchild cultivated by an experienced gang of hairstylists who, lucky for us, wanted to bring salon quality to the masses. The Sephora Glossy chatted with co-founder Michael Portman on why our next hair action should be to rinse and repeat with Verb. JESSICA VELEZ


“Verb was born a few years ago, when as salon owners we couldn’t find anything to put on the shelves that spoke to our clients looking for affordable quality. Why couldn’t pro-grade product come bad-stuff free, in straightforward packaging and be priced right? We thought Verb was an idea whose time had come, and we only launched the line beyond Austin once we realized others felt the same way. From the beginning, Verb was made to speak to people alienated by high-priced products. Coming from the salon world, we heard exactly what stylists and customers wanted in a line: Simple products that you don’t need a cosmetology license to use. No smoke and mirrors. Verb’s transparent approach translates to savings for the customer.”


 “If a natural ingredient can replace a synthetic one and do an even better job, we replace it. It’s the only way. Whether it’s what we eat or what we put on our skin, we choose the natural option, especially if it can be had for an accessible price. It is myth that using natural ingredients and taking out bad ones, like parabens and harmful sulfates, should result in a higher price.”


“We think beauty should be easy and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice quality to get it. Benefits like being vegan and cruelty-free are only bonuses. In fact, we think those bonuses should come standard.”


“This is a writer’s rule that translates precisely to what Verb is. Take the passive language out—get to the point and say what you do.

Verb says what it does and does what it says. You can experience our products for $14 across the board—that’s it. Ingredient benefits are secondary to getting right to what the client wants: The best possible product for the price.”


Verb Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner: “What I love most about Verb Hydrating Shampoo and Verb Hydrating Conditioner is that I can use them without my wife getting mad that I’m using her color-safe, sulfate- and paraben-free shampoo. Our kids use Verb. Most of all, they’re perfect for the teen beauty junkies. I love that Verb’s oatmeal grapefruit aroma is more like a lingering scent than a powerful smell, not too male or female—it’s made for everyone.

Verb Leave-In Mist:  “If you take the cap off a bottle of Verb Leave-In Mist and turn it upside down, nothing comes out. Put the cap back on and spray and you have a mist that disappears. We like light formulas that pack a powerful punch, but don’t weigh hair down. It is a foundation product great for all hair types.”
