No frizz? Really...?

Spring and Summer in the Northeast mean massive amounts of rain and humidity. For my curly hair, that means lots of creative updos (and not so creative ponytails). While I like to change my style when I can, I am generally low-maintenance and I like to wear my long hair down and curly. However, on days like today, it poofs up like a poodles coat and I am pulling it back less than ½ way through the day.

That’s why I was so excited to see a new product for curly hair with so much buzz on the market. I should have been wary of the buzz. My friend ordered 2 bottles from QVC and offered me one of the bottles to try it myself. Admittedly, I only used it once, but there are no miracles in a bottle here. I styled my hair according to the directions using an ample amount cream. While I was impressed by the light fragrance and the texture (not too sticky), I was unimpressed with the results. The weight of the product made my hair fall flat and while that solves the poof-factor, it does nothing for my style.

I’ve read a good deal of positive reviews online, so it must be working for someone, just not me (or my friend – who is returning her No Frizz today).

Overall: overpriced, nothing special
