Truth About Curls

The question I get asked most often after "Where do you shop?" is "What hair products do you use?" I have a pretty solid go-to hair routine, but I'm always down to try new products, especially when they're made for my hair texture. When Paul Mitchell's team contacted me about participating in their Truth About Curls Campaign, I didn't think twice before saying yes! You guys, it's even better than I expected. The line contains four products, and I used the Spring Loaded Detangling Shampoo and the Full Circle Leave-In Treatment. They made my curls really defined but I was still able to get the volume that I love (lots of times curly hair products are too heavy and weigh my hair down). Bonus: it all smells super yummy. The line will be available in October but in the mean time you can get involved by using the hashtag #curlconfession on twitter and on their FB page. Check out the photos to see my hair results and let me know what you think! Next month I'll be posting a vid about how I style it.
Recently I've been wearing boyfriend jeans and basic tee almost daily while I run around town. On a good day I'll wear heels, otherwise I opt for cute flats.

PS- I'm currently in NYC for Fashion Week. I'll be speaking at IFB Con tomorrow--hope to see some of you there! I'm headed to Europe on the 12th, and if you have a couch for me to crash on in London, Rome, Florence, Madrid or anywhere else (I'm open to suggestions) shoot me an email! gabi@gabifresh.com.

  3. Sadly, I don't have curly hair so have no idea how those products would work on me. I try my best to improvise curliness with endless bantu knot outs. :D
    BTW, I'm sending you a mail regarding London.

  15. I LOVE YOUR HAIR!!! Mine is very similar if not a tiny bit longer but I dont have the confidence in any specific product yet to allow myself to go au nautural for a full day.

    Can't wait for more hair tips!

    Also I love the fact that your not obsessed with "emphasising curves". Sometimes all you want to do is throw on a loose basic, baggy jeans and be comfortable!

    KEEP UP THE AMAZING WORK!

    P.s Would love to know what you will be upto in London!!!

  34. Hi Gabi I just discovered your blog last week after I saw you featured in Essence. I went all the way back and looked at all your posts back to 2008. Your blog is fabulous and so are you! I am older than you and your target audience but I still don't wanna look like anybody's mama because well I'm not...You provide lots of inspiration and information. While I do tend to shop in straight size stores more than plus and make it work for my size 18 body, I had no idea there were even more options like Asos curve..thank you! My wardrobe is about to get even flyer LOL
