To say I have curly hair is an understatement. I have out of control, bush woman hair. And not the pretty, soft and bouncy curl that starlets like Taylor Swift or SJP sport. The celebrity hairstyle mine resembles most is, er, Carrot Top. Remember him? I do. Every morning. So needless to say, I've tried absolutely everything to tame my frizzy hair--including straigtening treatments and a long, torrid affair with my straigtening iron. Now before you say, but curly hair is beautiful, it is who you are, you always want what you can't have--let me tell you that I'd love my curly hair, if it can be soft, bouncy and pretty--not if I am mistaken for a brillo pad. But like a bad child, my hair simply will not behave. Enter Je Veux... I believe this is a new product, and from what I can tell it is relatively unknown. The only reason I stumbled across it is because a friend of mine works for a company that distributes high end hair products to salons, and one of her perks is free tester product. She's not much of a hair buff so I reap the benefits of all her tester products. The Je Veux line was one of them.
Ok, long story not so short...I am in love. I used the Mud Treat Shampoo for Curly & Problematic Hair and its corresponding Mud Treat Conditioner for All Hair Types. Then I used Nourishing Mask:[here is the description from theJe Veux websiteis an intensive treatment for dull, tired, color-treated or damaged hair. It provides immediate nourishment and with its rejuvenating natural complex, it maintains and protects from damage and color fading.] I finished it all off with the Argan oil from Morocco which is Je Veux's bread & butter. The Argan Oil finishing product includes Argan Oil, Dead Sea Minerals, Neem Oil, Chamomile, Evening Primrose Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Calendula Oil, Sage, and Oblipicha Oil. For a product with so many oils in it, if used in the proper amount is not oily at all.
I put the product combination to the ultimate test; I went to bed with a wet head--remember the Carrot Top reference? This is how I invoke him.
The next morning I took my trusty flat iron to my hair, and without the usual fight that plagues my morning routine I had straight, not-greasy, frizz-free hair. I am officially a lifer. Ok, so here are my disclaimers/cons: 1. I believe that these product may only be available to salons or licensed hair stylists (I'm not 100% about that though.) 2. I'm also not sure how affordable they are, if indeed they are available to the average Jane. I scored these for free but I get the feeling that when I run out and need more, it might cost me a pretty (frizz-free) penny. 3. The distributor website seems only to cater to New York, New Jersey, Florida, Puerto Rico & the Virgin Islands. So middle America may be destined to out of control hair, at least for now.
That being said, I've alredy promised my friend my first born child for another fix of Je Veux...which ironically means "I want." And I do...
