On the 3rd Thursday of each month I do a real-time question and answer chat on Facebook so Jessicurl fans can get their hair questions answered. Since not everyone is able to participate due to scheduling, I thought I'd put a few of the questions that came up this past week here in the blog. Hopefully something here helps you in your hair routine. :)
Question: What's the difference between the Confident Coils product and the Rockin' Ringlets? I've actually used them both, but a long time ago for the Confident Coils one. I seem to remember that the Confident Coils one had less hold, but I can't really be sure. I love the Rockin' Ringlets one to pieces, but it seems to make my hair a little dry.
Answer: The two products actually work really well together. Rockin' Ringlets is quite curl enhancing, so it helps to tighten the curls. Confident Coils is great for curl definition and frizz control. So together, they're like a bra: lift and separate. :) Of the two, Confident Coils has more hold. I hope that helps but let me know if you have any other questions. :)
This is a great time to remind you all that we have several product demo videos on our site that show some really helpful tricks and tips for applying the products and getting the best results. You can check those out here.
Question: Are there any products that you suggest to use in place of Spiralicious until the drought is over? A combination, perhaps, that will have the same effect?
Answer: Confident Coils is the closest product we have to Spiralicious. Using it with Rockin' Ringlets will boost the overall hold achieved, though Spiralicious definitely has the most hold in our line. I know this is a rough time - I'm down to one last bottle of it myself! We will absolutely let everyone know when the drought is over and we can all celebrate together. :)
Question: My daughter has 3c/4a dense coils. The ends curl up beautifully, but the first 6-8 inches, theres little to no definition. What can I do?
Answer: How long is your daughter's hair? It's common for longer curly hair to do this, as the weight of the length pulls the curls out somewhat from the root. Also, how old is she? If it's age-appropriate, diffusing with her head upside down can help to encourage better curl at the roots. Of course, if she's a toddler I wouldn't recommend that. :)
Customer reply: Her her pulled straight is about to her belly button, curled- to her shoulders. She is 11 years old.
Answer: Ahh, yes, that's pretty long. :) And I'd imagine also thick/heavy. The plunking method also really helps increase curls at the roots. Here's a link to a video I made a million years ago demonstrating it. :)
The next real-time Facebook chat will be Thursday September 15th from 12:00 - 1:00 pacific time. Make sure to Like Jessicurl on Facebook to participate. :)
Have a curly day! :)
