Inevitably around this time of year our hair (not to mention our mood) becomes crushed with defeat.
In lieu of a seasonal pact with the straightening iron we’re reviving winter waves with Curl Activator from Alcove ($13.25). Quebec-made, this mild-smelling balm is tough enough to withstand hat-head, separating our boucles while holding them in place without sticky residue.
Now we’re looking a little more girl-with-the-curl, and lot less Ethel Merman. —Marianne Wisenthal
