Curly Hair Solutions Curl Keeper

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

erase3If you have curly hair, then you most likely have a collection of products under your sink. Companies are continually releasing new products to achieve the elusive frizz free, perfect curls. We tried Curl Keeper by Curly Hair Solutions. The fact that it’s silicone-free (a prime ingredient in fighting frizz) is interesting. But what is truly unexpected about this product is the texture. This is not a gel or a cream, it’s more like putting water on your hair. This is important to remember so you don’t pour too much on your hand. So does it provide that perfect curl with no product build up? Since it’s so light, it doesn’t weight your curls down at all. It’s also great at fighting frizz. This product would probably be better in a spray bottle, so we suggest using this as a spray to get even distribution of product. If you have very thick hair and like the weight of a strong gel to control your hair, you won’t like this product by itself. Instead, use this product for touch ups.

Tip: Traveling? Don’t take up precious space in your luggage with a huge diffuser. Get a mitt diffuser (it’s less than $5 at Sally Beauty Supply) which barely takes up any space in your bag and will fit just about any blow dryer. That way you can dry your curls properly – and save space!

One ‘n Only Brazilian Tech Treatment with Pequi Oil

Monday, November 11th, 2013

laA lot hair of products seem to have keratin now. We tried One ‘n Only Brazilian Tech Treatment with Pequi Oil. This contains keratin and pequi oil to eliminate frizz and condition hair. It’s a clear serum and you can smooth it on your hair before styling. We thought this product was amazing for softening and conditioning the hair. However, it has a pretty greasy texture so use it sparingly. Since it’s pretty heavy, we don’t recommend this for fine hair or if you have springy curls that get weighed down easily.

Tip: Frizzy hair? Do your best to not touch your hair throughout the day. The oils from your fingers only make matters worse.

Quantum Riveting Reds Color Replenishing Shampoo

Thursday, October 24th, 2013

erase3Dyeing your hair red can be a real pain because it fades so rapidly. Christina Hendricks from Mad Men has to color her hair every other episode to maintain the vibrant shade! We tried Quantum Riveting Reds Color Replenishing Shampoo since it’s hair color friendly, and takes it a step further and actually deposits color. This shampoo also helps with frizz. This shampoo really does extend the life of your hair color. Your hair gets a bit more red with every use! It’s also gentle, so it doesn’t do anything dramatic for your hair texture. But you can make up for that by using a great conditioner.

Tip: For warm highlights, try using Marc Anthony Instant Highlighting Spray with this shampoo. Spray on your hair and flat iron for highlights, then when you shampoo use Riveting Reds. A very cost efficient way of getting amazing copper highlights!

Got2b Anti-Frizz Shine Serum

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Now that the weather is getting warmer, humidity is on the way. We tried Got2b’s Anti-Frizz Shine Serum to see how it did with frizz and it thought it worked pretty well. Since this product has conditioning agents, it makes it a bit different from other silicone based products. Our favorite way to use this serum was to use it to make sleek ponytails. By using it as a finishing product, it helps prevent annoying flyaways and frizz. This is a very thick product, so a little goes a long way. For a ponytail, we thought it was best to use a dime size amount, rub our hands together, and then use them to smooth the front. You’ll also want to make sure you apply evenly; you definitely don’t want globs of shine here and there! We think this product is great for those who have thick or very frizzy hair. If you consider your hair thin, Anti-Frizz Shine Serum may weigh your hair down.

Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy 30 Day Smoothing Treatment

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

By now it’s easy to find salons that do Brazilian straightening treatments. However, they are expensive and can cost upwards of $150. If you’re comfortable with DIY beauty treatments, then you may want to try the Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy 30 Day Smoothing Treatment. It works by infusing keratin in your strands which removes your curl. This treatment also contains cocoa nut, avocado oils, and cocoa butter for healthier hair. It said to reduce blow-drying time by up to 75% and eliminate up to 95% of frizz and curl. Using this 30 Day Smoothing Treatment is no quick fix and is not for the impatient. First, you wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo. Then after towel drying, you put the Keratin Therapy 30 Day Smoothing Treatment in your hair. You are then to blow dry your hair, then flat iron each section of hair 7-10 times to seal the keratin in the hair. The treatment is supposed to protect your hair from the heat, but since it was our first time using it we only did two passes with the flat iron (7-10 times sounds like a lot!).  After 48 hours, you then wash your hair and style as normal, but you are encouraged to use sulfate and sodium chloride free shampoos and conditioners for the next 30 days. The result was noticeably more manageable and smoother hair. However, we didn’t notice a significant reduction in blow-dry time or curl. But it was certainly a help with frizz. Since our color-treated hair emerged from this chemical treatment without being damaged, we plan on trying this product again in 30 days with more flat-iron time.
