Whenever it’s summer it’s always a good idea to have a haircare that controls frizz and tames those annoying flyaways. I’ve always been a fan of Kerastase Fluidealiste Smooth-in-Motion products and the Serum Oleo-Relax (reviewed HERE), those really seem to handle my frizz quite well, however, I wanted to venture into something easier to find and much more affordable. The Living Proof brand of haircare seems to be promising, and today, I’m reviewing their No Frizz lines.
This line of No Frizz Shampoo, Conditioner, and Nourishing Styling Cream by Living Proof is meant to keep frizz at bay. They’re sulfate-free and is designed to block the humidity weightlessly. What I like about these products is that they come in different sizes so that you can try them and see if they work for the kind of hair that you have. I purchased the small sizes to see if these products really control my frizz as what it claimed to be.
My hair has always been on the straight side, but not necessarily fine. It’s pretty much thick and it has a tendency to get wavy. My biggest struggles are the flyaways and baby hairs that are so annoying especially during the summer, or whenever there’s humidity. Most of the time, if I’m at home, it tends to behave fairly well, but whenever I’m outside, it rebels and every strand seems to be standing up like I’ve been electrocuted, Haha! True, that’s why I always seek the help of a heating tool somehow. But it can’t always be healthy, you know, so I resort into creams, leave-ons, oils, etc… Some works, while some don’t
The Living Proof No “Frizz” line seems like something I could definitely use, and when I first got them, I didn’t try them all together and I find that my hair was still kinda frizzy, but using them together sort of made a difference. These didn’t weigh my hair down, which is thank God, but you really need to do the 3-step process in order to get the result. While I can’t speak for others who have coarser hair than mine, I definitely think that if your hair is fine to wavy with frizz, then this could work for you, even on a hot summer day.
Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo (2 oz: $10, 8 oz: $25, 24 oz: $59) – This shampoo has a light consistency and not so thick. It lathers fairly well and it has a lemon scent, which is sort of strong. This really cleans my hair well and it’s great to use everyday since it’s Sulfate-Fee.
Living Proof No Frizz Conditioner (2 oz: $10, 8 oz: $25, 24 oz: $59) – Has a slightly thicker formulation than the No Frizz shampoo but not overly thick, and it also has the same lemon scent. This feels moisturizing on the hair after shampooing yet it doesn’t weigh it down.
Living Proof No Frizz Nourishing Styling Cream (2 oz: $15, 4 oz: $27, 8 oz: $37) – This cream needs to be applied right after toweling the hair or while it’s still damp. You can either air dry the hair or just blow dry thereafter. The result is a tamed hair from roots to tips. Don’t be alarmed if your hair still looks frizzy after a few minutes of applying this, you have to let the hair dry completely in order to see the result.
Bottom line, I think these products work, but you really need to use them together as a step by step process. Using either one or two of them will defeat the purpose, thus making your hair still frizzy and otherworldly. I wouldn’t say that these “perfectly” tame the frizz like the way flat irons do, but these does a good job at calming the flyaways and frizziness.
The Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo, Conditioner, and Nourishing Styling Cream is available at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom, QVC, Target, Birchbox, Saks Fifth Avenue & Walgreens
