Curly hair. It’s back. You heard it here first. You will be heading for a perm by the end of this year, mark my words! I touched on this in the Beauty Trends post the other week, but with the return of 80s-tastic Stranger Things this week, curly hair was at the forefront of my mind.
And on my head. I have straightened the life out of my curls for decades now, but in the last month or so decided to embrace them, as you can see on my Instagram below. This look was created with a diffuser – remember them?!

Colour refreshed, roots sorted, and then hair blow-dried with a DIFFUSER! Embracing the 80s curls!! 🧡🍊🧡🍊🧡🍊 . . . #scottishbloggers #edinburghbloggers #orangehair #orangehairdontcare #loveorange #curls #80scurls #naturallycurly #nopermhere #styleover40 #discoverunder3k #thisismerlesworld #80sstyle
I’ve also been using Paul Mitchell’s Curl range Shampoo and Conditioner, and have been very impressed. The Spring Loaded Frizz-Fighting Shampoo (£17.95 200ml) washes away all the frizz and tangles that curly hair can have. It gently cleanses and conditions the curl without roughing up the cuticle. It uses sulfate-free surfactants to clean and is colour safe, paraben-free, vegan and gluten-free. I’ve really enjoyed using this, but Paul Mitchell is my favourite haircare brand, so I may be a bit biased.
The Spring Loaded Frizz-Fighting Conditioner (£18.50 200ml) is a rinse-out curl detangler, and it’s excellent. It really did detangle my curls in an instant. It’s a creamy, hydrating formula, that leaves your hair soft and frizz-free. It contains jojoba oil and hydrating natural extracts to help smooth the hair, but not interfere with the curl.
There are three styling products in this range as well. Ultimate Wave Beachy Texture Cream-Gel (£15.75 200ml) will help give you more of a wave than a curl. It’s humidity resistant, in a cream-gel formula and it forms and separates, and adds lots of texture to create those tousled beachy waves. It has soothing and smoothing mushroom extract to fight frizz.
Full Circle Leave-In Treatment (£18.85 200ml) is for those that have heavy duty curls, and need to tame the frizz, detangle, and replenish each and every one of them. You leave this in, and the creamy formula does all of that without weighing hair down.
Finally, the Twirl Around Crunch-Free Curl Definer (£22.25 150ml) will help define, separate and tame unruly curls and waves into perfect ringlets. It’s a dual formula of hydrating cream and smoothing gel, which work together to give you soft, gorgeous, perfect curls – with no crunch! That is one 80s trend we do NOT need to revisit!
