For someone who doesn’t have ridiculously unruly hair, I still find it an absolute pain to style it. My main issues? My hair is naturally thin and wavy, but I deal with both frizz and oiliness (ugh). I also hate devoting too much time for styling, so I usually just let it air dry or use mousse after washing. Because my hair gets dirty fast, I used to shampoo every other day, with my second-day hair almost always up in a ponytail. I could probably do better, right?
When Hair Cuttery reached out about trying some of Cibu products, not only was I excited about trying salon products for the first time (my hair products have always always come from drugstores/Target), but I was also excited about having someone pick products for me. I explained all my hair issues and anxiously awaited my hand-picked products. This is what I received (it was a surprise):
- Cibu Smooth Shampoo
- Cibu Smooth Conditioner
- Cibu Ka Pow Dry Shampoo
- Cibu Mousse Lee Foaming Volumizer
- Cibu Shang High Volumizing Mousse
I feel super silly admitting this, but I’m 95% sure I’ve never used a smoothing shampoo and I have no idea what I was doing. (I tended to buy volumizing, moisturizing or color-safe shampoos instead.) The shampoo and conditioner really helped when it came to frizz though! I’m also pretty obsessed with the dry shampoo — there’s no white residue and I can now go up to three days before washing, without my hair looking like a dirty mess. It’s a huge time saver.
As for the foaming volumizer and the volumizing mousse (both are alcohol-free and don’t dry out your hair!), besides the texture, I’m not quite sure what the difference is. Both enhance my hair’s wavy texture, but I prefer the lighter touch of the foaming volumizer.
I hadn’t heard of Cibu before, but I’m definitely interested in trying more of their products, like the detangler (I need a clarifying shampoo though!) Another cool thing abut Cibu products — which were actually developed by stylists — is that they are color-safe and sulfate-free. For the quality — Cibu shampoo/conditioner is seriously the best I’ve tried — it’s definitely on the affordable side. Want to try for yourself? You can find Cibu products online or you local Hair Cuttery, Salon Cielo, or a Bubbles Salon.
