Curly Hair Products


Curly hair is a challenge to say the least. The challenge starts once the curls grow in, as you can see from my lovely pics! It is extremely difficult to find a hairdresser that knows how to cut and color curly hair, and they usually never know how to style it! It takes a lifetime to find the products that are best for your hair type and styling it is a whole other problem.

Over 18 years ago I went to the Ouidad curly hair salon in Manhattan. When I moved to Florida they started opening up flagship salons and I would drive an hour to a salon in Fort Lauderdale to get my hair cut and colored. Now they have salons all over the country, but I don’t get my hair done there. But I can’t get away from their products.   They are really the best for my hair type. Here is a list of some of the best Ouidad products I’ve ever used.

Advanced Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel

Finishing Mist

Moisturizing Shampoo

Moisturizing Conditioner

Botanical Boost

If you are not into the Ouidad products, I have heard a lot about Carol’s Daughter, which also specializes in curly hair.

I also can not do my hair without the following tools:

I have one of these combs in the shower to comb the conditioner through and one for when I get out of the shower to comb the detangler through.

I use these curl clips once I have styled my hair to lift the hair at the roots while it is air drying. Sounds crazy unless you have curly hair.  Lol

And I wouldn’t attempt to dry my hair without a diffuser.

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
