I love my curly hair, but it doesn't always love me back. Sometimes it gets frizzy. Other times, when I'm stressed, tired or very overdue for a haircut, my curls seem to give up their shape. No matter what the problem, John Frieda Frizz-Ease Dream Curls Curl Perfecting Spray seems to straighten things out--er--curl things up.
I've been using it for so long, I can't imagine my hair routine without it. I spray a little on my damp hair right after I wash it. I comb it through with my fingers or a wide tooth comb. Then, I had my sculpting foam, scrunch and diffuse.
Dream Curls makes my spiral curls bounce, even when my hair is super long. It also keeps the frizz to a minimum and amps up my shine. It's like magic. It may sound odd, I use a little on my bangs before I blow them straight because it makes them shiny, frizz-free, static-free and a little bouncier since my hair usually falls flat when it's straight.
Unlike a lot of curl and shine products, Dream curls never makes my hair crunchy or greasy. It does help with the natural dryness of curly hair, but I don't have to worry about over applying and ending up with an oil slick. Also, I've never accidentally over applied this and ended up with crunchy curls. It's a styling product with a leave-in conditioner built in.
It costs between $5-$6 depending on the store and region, but I can usually find $1 or $2 coupons to save and combine with sales. If you do that, you'll get Dream Curls for about $2 to $3 a bottle. I think I use about six to eight bottles a year, and I have waist-length hair. This stuff goes a long way.
