Living Proof Straight Spray: Helping Me Break The Flat Iron Habit
Going back to work has created several "problems" for me. You know - lack of sleep, lack of time for housecleaning, running out of Diet Coke, etc. However, one of the biggest hassles of working is having to fix my hair every.single.day.
You see, when I was working from home and only going into the office one day a week, I could go days without touching my hair with a flat iron because quite often, only the husband would see me. I could hide my bad hair days behind the computer. Not so much anymore, my friends. As a result, I've been torturing my hair with the flat iron and hair dryer on an almost daily basis.
The last time I went to see my hair guru Phillip, he informed me that my hair was literally breaking off around my face. I was horrified. Horrified and devastated. I've never had problems with breakage - my hair has always been thick, lush and healthy. I wanted to cry, but instead I started to look for a new styling product as I knew I had no choice - I had to lay off the flat iron for a while. (Or according to Phillip, soon I wouldn't have any hair to flat iron!). Well, when you put it like that.....
During a trip to Ulta, I decided to pony up the $29 price tag and purchased the Living Proof Straight Spray. According to the manufacturer, this product "extends the life of straight styles". You apply this spray to wet or dry hair and then blow dry your hair. I'm now a firm believer in this product, and I can tell you it works.
Now I'm able to blow dry my hair straight, and only slightly touch up with a flat iron on day one. On days two and three, I use this Straight Spray on dry hair, then quickly run the hair dryer through my hair without using the flat iron.
Maybe I'll be able to save my hair after all! I can't believe how great the spray works. If you're trying to break the flat iron habit but love the look of smooth, sleek hair - I recommend you try this product. I'm betting you'll love it too!
Have you tried any of the Living Proof products? If so, how did you like them?
Note: these products are available at Ulta and Sephora.
