Curls Like Us Give-away

Contest is now closed. Winner will be announced by Friday, March 20, 2009.



Curls Like Us has graciously donated a set of two Curl Cloths (retail value of $24) that one of YOU lucky readers will be able to win.


The Curls Like Us™ Curl Cloth™ is a smooth-textured styling cloth designed to gently wick away excess water from hair while encouraging “curl clustering™” for beautiful definition, without the frizz.


Features


  • The smooth texture wicks away just the right amount of water and sets curls, without introducing frizz

  • The ergonomical, tubular shape of the Curl Cloth™ makes it easy to rotate during use

  • The brown color does not become discolored by residual hair dye

  • Includes a convenient loop for hanging

Benefits


  • Makes your favorite curl-friendly styling products work better

  • Sets curls and encourages “Curl Clustering™” for improved definition while reducing separation

  • Unlike terry cloth, they do not introduce frizz or cause split ends and breakage
  • Great, earth-friendly alternative to using paper towel.

Competitive Advantage


  • The inherent coarse texture of terry cloth roughens up the hair cuticles causing split-ends, breakage and ultimately frizz

  • Although paper toweling is frequently recommended by Curl Experts, most women prefer using an earth-friendly alternative

  • While an old t-shirt certainly works , it’s not nearly as user-friendly or as aesthetically pleasing


“Don't dry your hair with a terry-cloth towel --the fibers can roughen up the cuticle and cause frizz.” – USAWeekend.com


“Dry your hair with a T-shirt or paper towels in stead of a bath towels, which can cause frizz”, Caring for Curly Hair March, 2007 – Real Simple


“Stop drying your hair with a towel. The nubs tear apart the curls. Instead use a smooth surface like a paper towel or t-shirt.” -Lorraine Massey, author of Curly Girl, The Handbook (Workman 2002)


“The Curl Cloths do exactly what they promise. They wick away excess water, curls clump together and hair is not left frizzy at all. -Feedback found on NaturallyCurly.com CurlTalk Forum
