Living Proof No Frizz Debuts Shampoo and Conditioner!!!

no+frizz Living Proof No Frizz Debuts Shampoo and Conditioner!!!I don’t know who is in the running for this year’s Nobel Peace Prize. But I’ll tell you who should be – the people over at Living Proof.

Sure, they haven’t ended any wars or found a way to mend the broken healthcare system in the U.S., but they have achieved the unthinkable. Women worldwide are finally at peace with their hair thanks to Living Proof’s revolutionary No Frizz products.

Developed by a talented team of MIT scientists, No Frizz is a comprehensive collection of cutting-edge, humidity-resistant formulas that work for all hair types. And besides obliterating frizz, these products also manage to smooth hair without a heavy or greasy feel, impart lasting shine and softness, and repel dirt and oil so you can go longer between shampoos.

Ever since I started using the No Frizz styling products “frizz” has ceased to be a word in my vocabulary (except here, obv). I use No Frizz religiously and even take them to the salon with me when I’m getting me hair did. When Spoiled Pretty partnered with Living Proof for a giveaway, the winner wrote back – raving that these are products she’ll use FOR LIFE. I mean, just read her review and tell me you’re not convinced.

As if these styling products weren’t enough of a contribution to society, Living Proof now adds shampoo and conditioner to its repetoire.

living+proof+no+frizz+shampoo+and+conditioner Living Proof No Frizz Debuts Shampoo and Conditioner!!!“We like to refer to these two products as a labor of love for our scientists,” says CEO Rob Robillard. “When we first started introducing the No Frizz styling products to the press and to retailers out there, they kept saying — ‘why don’t you have a shampoo & conditioner?’ Then as all you fans out there learned how great the styling products were you too kept asking — why don’t you have a shampoo & conditioner? The answer was quite simple. We didn’t want to launch just any old shampoo and conditioner, we wanted it to be as revolutionary as our styling products. We wanted you to be blown away again.”

These new daily care products wash away frizz and provide heat protection from tools like blow driers, curling irons and flat irons. The Humidity Blocking, Weightlessly Hydrating, Sulfate-Free Shampoo was developed with PolyfluoroEster and SLMI, a gentle, sulfate-free surfactant, to remove any trace of dirt or oil without stripping the hair. It promises to be the perfect choice for everyday cleansing for all hair types, including color-treated hair. Humidity Blocking, Weightlessly Hydrating, Shine Restoring Conditioner is the natural companion to leave hair soft, shining and hydrated without weighing it down.

Moisture Restoring No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner will soon be added to the No Frizz family. It is an ideal option for drier hair, incorporating PolyfluoroEster with lightweight glycerin as the key moisturizing component instead of heavy oils, a first for a leave-in frizz-fighting product.

No Frizz Shampoo and Conditioner are available now at livingproof.com. The entire collection will launch in September 2009 at Sephora and QVC.

Blame It On The Rain

woman+rain+window Blame It On The RainAs you are already aware, rainy days and Mondays always get me down. Yes, I realize that rain is a part of nature and helps to sustain life as we know it. But is it shallow of me to hate how it messes with my hair?

Luckily, Frédéric Fekkai feels the pain of hair-obsessed ladies living in a rain ravaged world.

For a limited time, they’ll be offering complimentary umbrellas to all salon patrons who brave the rain for any hair service. The umbrellas are free for those clients receiving treatments, and ten dollars for all other customers.

The Curious Case of Taraji P. Henson’s Hair

Oscars7 The Curious Case of Taraji P. Hensons Hair

Back in the days of the 2009 Oscars and Independent Spirit Awards, I had a serious thing for Taraji P. Henson’s hair. So when she showed up to the MTV Movie Awards rocking a Jenny Humphrey mullet, I was all, “Oh no she didn’t kick ole Bob to the curb!”

But I have to admit that her new edgy do is growing on me.

And how does she get her hair to shine like the top of the Chrysler Building? I wouldn’t be surprised if her secret shine weapon was Moroccanoil Gold Glimmer Shine. That spray is beyond compare!

Why Should Robert Pattinson Have All The Fun?

robert+pattinson Why Should Robert Pattinson Have All The Fun?I had such a blast messing around on Daily Makeover and photoshopping different celebrity styles onto Robert Pattinson, I decided Kristen Stewart needed a Twilight-inspired virtual makeover.

What would Kristen look like if she traded tresses with her New Moon co-stars? No need to guess; I’ve painted you some pictures. Consider this a companion piece to the previous post.

Kristen Stewart Lets Her Hair Down

kristen+stewart+dark+hair Kristen Stewart Lets Her Hair DownThe other day, I posted some photos of Twilight star Kristen Stewart’s new cropped, black coiff.

In those pics, her hair was pulled back and she seemed a little camera shy about revealing her new short cut.

But today, Kristen let her hair down – proudly rocking her Joan Jett inspired shag/mullet. It also appears that she’s embracing the role through her wardrobe.

2nd Day Hair: Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment Spray

Pop quiz, hot shot. How many times a week do I wash my hair per week?

If you’ve been paying attention, you know that more than one shampoo every seven days would have me looking like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (I picked him cuz he’s pretty). My hair’s just so dang fine and brittle.

On day one, my hair is looking okay. 24 hours post-shampoo, my hair is looking quite fab…if I do say so, myself. But on the seventh day, my tresses are looking tore up and terrible. At the end of the week, I have to coat my hair in creams, balms and shine serums just to comfortably walk down the street without eliciting ‘who let the crazy girl outta the asylum?’ stares. And even then, I need to pull my hair back into a ponytail to prevent nature from taking its disastrous course.

ojon+restorative+hair+treatment+spray 2nd Day Hair: Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment SpraySo I’m elated to report that I’ve found a product that gives me a 2nd day hair look on day seven!
Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment Spray
is enriched with Ojon and Swa oils, and infuses hair with a nourishing dose of omega 3, 6, and 9 essential fatty acids while adding shine. It can be used daily (and even layered throughout the day) without weighing hair down or causing buildup.

Basically, it’s Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment in a fine mist formula. You spray it on dry hair, and it’s like a wake-up call for dry, damaged and/or limp locks…reviving your style and imparting weightless sheen. For additional volume, just flip your head upside down and spray the root area. One thing to note: this product is not a hairspray; it doesn’t give hair any hold whatsoever. So if that’s what you were hoping for, too bad. It’s great for someone like me who doesn’t wash her hair every day, because it means you can spray day after day without leaving your hair crispy and crunchy.

Ojon Restorative Hair Treatment Spray is a QVC exclusive, so don’t bother trying to track down a can elsewhere.

Next up on my Ojon shopping list…

Restorative Leave-in Treatment: Replenish much-needed moisture to your hair with this leave-in restorative gel. Packaged in a pump bottle, it uses Ojon and Swa oils to add shine and hydration to hair. Dispense one to three pumps into your palm, and rub hands together. Apply evenly throughout damp hair. Finish with a blow dryer or let your hair air dry.

Restorative Pre-Cleansing Treatment: This product is billed as the Restorative Hair Treatment, in a super-concentrated, in-shower formula. Before shampooing, emulsify a quarter-sized amount between your palms and apply to dry or damp hair. Comb hair gently from roots to ends to distribute evenly, and leave in for up to five minutes before rinsing. The founder of Ojon says the Restorative Pre-Cleansing Treatment is so amazing that it eliminates the need for conditioner!

In the words of Black Eyed Peas’ front man, will.i.am: “Gotta get get.”
