These samples couldn't have come at a better time. A huge storm/rain system has been hanging over the midwest for weeks. I was having bad hair days every day and was at my wits end. Every serum, leave-in, and gel I'd been using did something good while I was in my air-conditioned house, but when I walked outside - poof! Frizz everywhere. It's so frustrating to be a wavy haired gal who wants a straight, shiny mane.
Then a package arrived. It had the Living Proof No Frizz Straight Making Styling spray (and a companion spray for Wave Making styling). I was so excited to try it. First the No Frizz straight making spray: I opted for the fine hair version.
It comes in a small gray bottle with a white top that has a peculiar sort of shape to it. It looks like a, well, sort of...like part of the male anatomy. It struck me as odd. Anyway, I just pulled the cap off and threw it away. Much better.
I did my usual wash and condition and leave in regime. Then I generously sprayed the No Frizz all over and combed it through. My hair looked straight immediately - it sort of seemed relaxed just with the spray. So far, so good. Then I picked up the blowdryer and got to work. At first my hair felt a little like I'd sprayed hair spray on it, a little stiff, but then as it dried, that feeling disappeared. It felt silkier, shinier. Not perfect, but pretty darn good.
Now, it did NOT take all the frizz away. I still had to run a flat iron through my hair. But the straight shiny look held up well in the humid weather. It worked better than my Phytodefrisant works in humid weather. And that's very good news. But the bottle is so small, and I feel like I used a lot. Not sure how long this will last. I do wish it came in a bigger bottle. But, I'd buy it and use it again. I also like the fresh, clean, citrus-y smell.
As for the the Wave Making spray. I tried it once and I didn't like it very much. It left my hair frizzier - not as smooth - harder to straighten or at least de-frizz. Not sure of what chemically makes it different than the Straight-Making spray, but it just doesn't do anything that?s good for my wavy/prone to frizz hair.
All in all, the Straight Making spray is a winner.
