|Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave-In Treatment|
Curls are complicated. They come in a vast array of shapes, sizes and textures. Variety is beautiful, but it also means that every head of curly hair has unique needs that aren't typically met by the majority of products out there. As a result, women with curly or wavy hair often struggle for years to find a routine that leaves their locks looking and feeling beautiful. Paul Mitchell has just launched a new product line called "The Truth About Curls" to help make that struggle easier.
Paul Mitchell has also launched an accompanying Truth About Curls webpage that invites women to share their curl confessions. Many of the user-submitted statements currently on the site reveal the ongoing frustration that often accompanies curly hair. Alongside these more cathartic posts, The Truth About Curls also shares stories of women who have come to love their curly locks. It's an interesting marketing concept that I really appreciate: instead of being centered around fantasy and aspiration, Paul Mitchell is acknowledging the tension and transitions that many women experience between self-loathing and self-love.
Now more to the point: The Truth About Curls collection includes the sulfate-free Spring Loaded Detangling Shampoo, Full Circle Leave-In Treatment, Twirl Around Crunch-Free Curl Definer, and Ultimate Wave Beachy Texture Cream-Gel. I've been using the Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave-In Treatment to extremely good results.
Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave-In Treatment has a super creamy texture that spreads easily to coat every strand. It contains argan oil to moisturize and de-frizzify hair, which many people love, but I was sure it would weigh my thin hair down. Not with this product -- Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave-In Treatment leaves my hair feeling hydrated, soft, and conditioned without that grimy heavy feeling.
In addition to reducing frizz, Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave-In Treatment boosts curl wonderfully. My hair is typically a combination of curly, wavy and straight, but I get a nice collection of soft ringlets all over when I use this product. I feel like it diffuses them a little bit as well, giving the appearance of a greater number of strands.
Paul Mitchell Full Circle Leave-In Treatment preps hair well for styling. I've been doing pin curls some nights to save time in the morning, and this product guarantees a smooth, tangle-free finish. It also protects against damage so I don't feel as guilty if I need to use my curling wand to correct a tweaky strand.
People following the sulfate and silicone-free Curly Girl Method will want to avoid this product though. While the Spring Loaded Detangling Shampoo is sulfate-free, the Full Circle Leave-In Treatment contains silicone in the form cyclopentasiloxane. This can only be removed from your hair if you use a shampoo with sulfates. Just a heads up!
Any curly haired gals out there interested in trying Paul Mitchell's The Truth About Curls? Are you ready to share your curl confession? ;)
