Even with the perfect outfit and an expertly painted face, limp, frizzy, and generally unhealthy hair can ruin your date night look. Curly hair is especially difficult to maintain, and all that extra product only weighs it down and creates nasty buildup. This is why has teamed up with Design Essentials to bring you a whopping ten hair care and styling products that promise to cleanse, condition, nourish, revitalize, and restore your hair to its natural beauty — just what you need to catch the attention of your man.

The Design Essentials hair care system was launched in 1990 by Cornell McBride, and since then, it has boomed into a product line that combines premium, top-quality hair care solutions that are also easy to use at home. And with their latest Natural line that is paraben-free, paraffin-free, mineral oil-free, petrolatum-free, and silicone-free, it is easier than ever to maintain and style curly hair that is slightly wavy to tightly coiled. Design Essentials is also committed to educating people about proper hair care, so a simple click on their website takes you to helpful charts and how-to articles about the type of hair you have and what you can do about everything from breakage to dandruff.
