The Best Hair Straightening Product Ever!
While I love the warm weather and loathe the cold, hot weather brings a new problem to my house. Frizzy and out of control hair! You probably don't know this yet, but my hair is naturally wavy. Not curly, just wavy. And enough natural wave to be a constant pain in the bootie. Lucky me, I'm one of those people who have to work to make my hair curly, or work to make it straight. I know, you probably find it hard to believe, because in most of the pictures you see here, my hair is stick straight! This, my friends, is the miracle of product. :-)
Meet "Heat-Protective Silk Straightening Cream" by Kiehl's, another one of My Favorite Things.
I discovered this product while living in Charlotte. At the time, I made the committment that I was going to wear my wavy hair straight all the time, even if I had to work hard to do it. I quickly discovered that without the right tools for the job I would probably pull all my hair OUT and it wouldn't matter anyway! One Saturday I was at the Kiehl's counter in Belk, and the consultant recommended the product to me. Of course I bought it - promise me straight hair, and I'm dragging out the $$$ immediately, duh.
This is applied to my hair when it's soaking wet, and then I dry it with my trusty Aveda paddle brush (after using the Aveda light elements I've discussed here before). Honestly, this straightening cream is a miracle for my hair! Many days (think low humidity ones), I don't even have to use the flat iron.
Here's what the Kiehl's folks have to say about the product:
Formulated especially for wavy, frizzy, or curly hair in need of smoothing, our unique straightening cream contains a blend of natural ingredients to help straighten out hair and tame frizz without weighing hair down. Infused with extracts derived from Soy Beans, Sesame Seeds and Sunflower Seeds, this unique formulation locks out humidity while conditioning and protecting hair from over-drying and breakage. Light and greaseless, our straightening cream gives hair an ultra-straight and silky-smooth look with incredible shine.
Believe me when I tell you this, if you're looking for a new straightening cream, try this one before you invest big $$$ on other products. Heat Protective Silk Straightening Cream retails for only $17, and a bottle lasts about 60 days for me. It's available on the Kiehl's website and of course at all major retailers who carry the Kiehl's line. Give it a try, I can't wait to hear what you think!
Here's to a Frizz-Free Spring and Summer!
p.s. Just sharing my experiences with you - Shopaholic is not endorsed or compensated by Kiehl's in any way! But hey Kiehl's folks, if you're listening out there and you need a tester that lives in humidity, I'm your girl!!!
