    Although both of them hate their hair because of the hassel! they say they have trouble at the hairdressers too because no-one can cut it properly!
    i had a nightmare for years because every time i would walk into a hairdressers they would look at me and say "ugh, we dont do your hair" with a smirk. the cheek! well youre obviously not a very good hairdresser then, are you, if you can only cut straight hair?! i got really stressed out about it and went to a specialist afro hairdresser once and they charged me a fortune for the worst haircut in the world, it was all uneven and scraggly and there was a huge 'step' in it. my hairdresser now is great, she didnt turn me away just because i have semi-afro style hair. she likes a challenge! when she straightens it her eyes are all red afterwards cause she has been standing over the hairdryer for so long, bless her.

    Le Vintage - i have very curly hair, and i find that altering evn the hair conditioner I use can make a big difference to my curls. Since curly hair tends to be drier than other types, try hair shampoos and conditioners from ranges such as Dove, and Aussie, which i personally find very good to alternate. Maybe invest in trial sizes of products to find out what suits you - Boots usually sell them in the summertime for when people go on holiday - I find that Dove and Frizz Ease are particularly good for smaller, more 'testable' product sizes.

    I use hair serum and hair mousse afterwards to style curls with. For serum, I get some random brand that my hairdressers sells, but Frizz Ease is a good one. For hair mousse, Frizz Ease again is excellent, but another good one is Pantene hair mousse.

    Finally, to keep curls in place, maybe use a diffuser attachement on your hairdryer when drying your hair.

    Tragically, no: I yet lack the distinct attribute of having bedded four-thousand women. That said, it's early days (and Fresher's Fortnight doth beckon me in earnest).

    there's no harm in experimenting, as everyone is different - it depends how curly your hair is, or, if you havent got naturally curly hair, what type of curls you want to acheive! Personally, my hair is very very curly, so i use both since my curls dont frizz up as quickly. If you buy some serum, (e.g. Frizz Ease is a good one), then use it and see how your hair 'reacts'. Then next time, apply a little bit of serum, and then try some mousse afterwards. .
