Curly Qs: Blissful Updo
By Sandra Mariscal | 08/05/2009 - 13:00

I’m engaged! Yay! I’m so excited about it that somehow I manage to make everything wedding-related: A pretty dress in a magazine could be the perfect bridesmaid’s gown. Silver cufflinks online are perhaps good for the groom’s gift. Purple calla lilies at my friends house? Need those for my bouquet. I guess this is where the phrase “wedding mode” comes into play, annoying as it may be. But anyway, when it comes to my hair, I’ve been trying to find an elegant updo that will show off my curls on that special day.

Curly Qs: DevaCurl No-Poo
By Sandra Mariscal | 07/29/2009 - 18:00

When it comes to shampooing, I like to see and feel the suds. Maybe this is because I don’t shampoo my hair everyday, so when I do, I like to really scrub my scalp and remove any product buildup from my strands. But did you know that a shampoo's ability to lather has nothing to do with its ability to clean? Contrary to popular belief, the ingredients that create bubbles aren’t the active ingredients that cleanse your hair. We are just accustomed to thinking more suds equal cleaner hair.

Curly Qs: The Joy of Seda

I’ve been using this amazingly creamy leave-in conditioner called Seda for years. It makes my curls look defined and feel soft, and it controls the frizz factor. Of course, there’s a catch—the only place I can buy it is at a Brazilian bodega in my hometown in New Jersey. I mentioned this to two curly-haired colleagues one day when we were discussing our favorite products. They both told me they use an amazingly creamy leave-in conditioner called Sedal (and they're not the only ones, I've heard rave reviews about this brand before).
