Next week social media intern Julia is heading to Italy, first to Liguria and then Sicily. She’ll be spending time with her family, swimming in the Mediterranean, and of course indulging in lots of focaccia. (Bring us, too!) Here’s what she’s packing in her valigia:
1. Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper: Vacation is when I like to take a break from constantly blow drying and straightening my hair so this curl keeper is the only styling product I am bringing along- it leaves my curls soft and bouncy, plus it doesn’t build up or feel heavy.
As a curly-haired girl (okay, maybe more of a wavy-haired girl), I’m always trying products in an attempt to perfect my curls. The search is neverending and with so many formulas for everything from loose waves to tight spirals, it’s understandably difficult to get the right fit. (Don’t even get me started on extra problems like dryness or frizz.) Is it any wonder why I haven’t found my holy-grail product?

As someone who was born with pin-straight hair that refuses to hold a curl, I’ve harbored a deep, burning desire for princess waves for as long as I can remember. Needless to say, I had absolutely no idea how much time and effort is often required to make natural curls look as beautifully bouncy and glossy as they do.
When Curl Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions landed on my desk, I saw it as an excuse to launch a mini-investigation into the lives of the curly-haired gals that I envied. After hunting down a couple of Birchbox staffers with wavy locks, I handed them a sample of Curl Keeper to try for themselves. See what their thoughts were below!
