What's a girl with a curl to do? Spend her life trying to swim against the tide, or wake up and smell the curl-defining creme? John Frieda's Frizz-Ease is the grande fromage of curl definition, but I prefer a lighter touch, such as Bumble & Bumble's Curl Conscious Creme. Forget God, my family and anyone who's ever passed me on the street without tripping me up - when I win my Oscar, it's these guys I'll be thanking. Spin Control, from Redken, is great at repairing the damage done by an out-of-control diffuser habit, as is Twisted Sista's spray. And Beverley Cobella's capsules give a welcome moisture boost, but need to be about twice the size, please.
