With that comes the never ending battle of frizz, and for the most part we've been able to deal with it, but since moving to Texas from Idaho, we've had the worst time controlling the frizz due to the humidity in this area.
I have tried multiple products since moving here and nothing seems to work, so when I was contacted by VO5 and asked if I would like to try their Anti-Frizz products, I jumped right on it. Might as well give it a try and hopefully find something that works.
Before I show you how we used it on my daughter's super frizzy curly hair, I will tell you a little about the products.
Step one in taming frizz is to understand how it happens. “Frizz occurs when moisture from the air’s humidity infiltrates the cuticles on the head causing hair to literally spring out of control,” said Nina Riley, VP of Marketing for Alberto VO5. “Pre-treating the hair before shampooing with products like VO5 Hot Oil Treatment helps to smooth out the cuticle, while VO5’s Shine, Glow and Go Beauty Oil helps to maintain the rest of your hair, even on the hottest, stickiest days.”
According to a recent survey by VO5, frizz is among women’s leading beauty challenges, with 62% of American women identifying frizzy hair as their most dreaded hair malfunction. So how do these women deal with frizz? According to VO5’s latest nationwide poll, 43% straighten their hair, while 39% get around frizz with creative up-dos.
Born-in-Hollywood and celebrating its 60th birthday this year, Alberto VO5 has developed an easy, three-step frizz-fighting regimen, spanning a once-weekly pre-shampoo treatment to daily maintenance:
Hot Oil Treatment (1x/week): Once a week moisturize and condition hair before shampooing from roots to ends with VO5’s iconic Hot Oil Therapy treatment which helps restore shine, strength and silky softness.
Smooth + Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner (3x-7x/week): Formulated with a unique smoothing complex that helps manage unruly hair, use the shampoo and conditioner together for best results in helping eliminate frizz, pronto!
Shine, Glow and Go Beauty Oil (7x/week): Light, natural oil blend for both hair and body. This new innovative oil that’s mineral oil-free, quickly helps replenish dry hair and skin to help you feel soft, silky and look radiant.
Are you ready to see the transformation???? I've used it on my hair too and it works wonderful, but I thought I would show you Jasmine's hair because hers is much worse than mine, being curly and all.
So this is what we started with, this is pretty normal, the beautiful soft curls underneath and the crazy frizz on top. It's hard to managed, it's hard to not frizz and she gets super frustrated with it.
First thing we did was apply the Hot Oil Treatment. It is applied before shampooing. We wet her hair, applied the hot oil all over and let it sit for a minute then washed it all off really well.
Once the oil was removed, we washed her hair using the VO5 Smooth and Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner which is especially formulated to fight frizz.
We let the hair air dry, and once it was dry, we applied the last product which was the VO5 Shine, Glow and Go Beauty Oil.
I went ahead and straightened her hair just to show you how much healthier and non frizzy it looks. What a huge change and it was so soft and silky too.
Overall, we are really pleased with the products and feel like we've finally found something that works to tame the frizz and the unruly hair, which is perfect for living in this high humidity area.
If it works for our hair, I am sure it will work for yours too :)
