Paul Mitchell - Ultimate Wave - Beachy Texture Cream-Gel

As you may or may not know I have naturally curly hair (when I say Curly I mean unruly, at times frizzy, almost uncontrollable curly hair) which means I'm always looking to find new brands or new DIY recipes, new products that will help me tame my hair.
And here I present: Paul Mitchell - Ultimate Wave - Beachy Texture Cream-Gel.

Obviously this is not the amount I used. Ha!... If only! 

Initially I got this from my Company Beauty Week Goodie Bag and I only decided to try it recently as an occasion presented itself for it (My Nephews birthday early October).
As you can see the product is opaque/clear and it smells sooo fresh and kinda fruity.!. What I loved the most is that (for me) it doesn't leave that annoyingly sticky/tacky feeling gels or wax leave on your fingers after you've applied it your hair.!.

Washed my hair (we all know how insanely crazy and unmanageable curly hair can get after wash Day)

"Directions: Apply to damp hair in loose, seperate sections. Air dry or duffuse. Scrunch lightly when dry."
I followed instructions and applied it onto my hair and combed it through with my Vogetti - Wide Tooth Comb Brush and let it air dry (I don't own a diffuser- I know shameful)
Also don't you just love that they don't say add a "Pea Sized Amount" because lets be honest. We never do, and even if we do it most certainly isn't enough!

Anyway after a whole day of being out and about, celebrating etc here is the finished result. (I'm sorry for the terrible quality and I highly blanked out skin but I wanted to focus on the curls and to be honest the lighting in my bathroom sucks.!.
But You can see every single strand of hair has held its curl.!. I received so many compliments. Even my sister noticed the difference and asked me what I had used.!. Even the next day my curls still looked fabulous so I'd say its perfect for a night out! I loved how my hair didn't feel stiff. It felt so soft and natural.

So I can absolutely recommend this to all my curly haired sisters.!.!.!. Only issue is its a little hard to get hold of as its a Salon Product.
I believe you can get it from Headmasters Salons or online from:
Look Fantastic for: £11.95 (150ml)
Hair Trade for: £5.95 (75ml)

Have you tried this yet? Any other curly hair product recommendations?
