Curly Qs: Steal of the Month

My colleague always comes to work with the most springy, super shiny ringlets. A few weeks ago, I just couldn’t resist anymore and I asked her to please tell me her secret. She told me about Pantene Pro-V Relaxed & Natural Daily Oil Cream Moisturizer ($5). After washing, she finger combs her strands and styles individual curls with this rich cream. I went shopping for it that same day. This product has jojoba, coconut oil and vitamins, so it conditions and imparts the glossy effect I was lusting over.

But beware, chicas. The first time I tried it I made the mistake of applying a big glop, which made my hair look greasy. A little bit does the trick. And what a trick indeed—my friend just asked me what I was using to keep my hair looking so shiny. It’s a trusty bargain!
