Review: John Frieda® Hair Care "Never Pull Pack" Movement To Always Put Your Best Self And Hair Forward - New Frizz Ease® Collection

We all have those days when things aren’t going our way, and it often starts with our hair. When stress is building, time is tight, and the humidity is up, sometimes we can’t handle dealing with our hair on top of everything else, so we give up and put it up.

Love the look of smooth, frizz-free hair but hate all that heat styling? Flat irons, curling wands, heated rollers… Oh my! We’re frying our locks to the core! But it seems that the only way to achieve smooth-looking strands is to apply heat to it… until now!

Introducing the °Coolway Low Heat Styling Revolution, which is transforming the haircare industry by providing women with breakthrough products and moisture-sensitive styling tools
that completely avoid intense heat and the damage it causes. Surely a “Cool Way” to style hair!

°Coolway keeps the health of your hair in mind even from the early stages of product conception!

“Why would anyone have to damage their hair just because they want to style it?! The only way to get great hair is to avoid damage, and after years of research, our team of scientists have achieved just that,” says Co-Founder, Joseph Sherman.

°Coolway has just launched its True Smooth™ Spray, featuring a new technology that allows you to avoid using a flat iron altogether. AminoLock MAB is the brand’s patent-pending molecule which holds your hairstyle safely from inside the cuticle as you blow-dry.

Review, Before/After Photos: Living Proof No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner, Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, Flex Shaping, Full Root Lifting Hairspray, Amp² Instant Texture Volumizer

I recently read a headline that said, “Jennifer Aniston Would Rather Be Bald Than Have The ‘Rachel’”.

See some AMAZING BEFORE/AFTER PHOTOS of our beauty writer Erin trying out the Living Proof Restore Collection – Increases Hair Strength, Softness And Shine —> HERE!

This got me to thinking of all of the things Jennifer and I have in common: we’re both over 40-years-old; we’re both engaged without a wedding date; we both have nice hair and she is a co-owner and spokesperson for a hairline company called Living Proof… and I’m a hair writer for BeautyStat.com who got the chance to review it!

Although, I secretly wish she would shave her head so I could jump in and be their new spokesperson. But, I was happy to just be connected to her in some mere way.

Having been obsessed with all things Jennifer since her role on Friends, I have to admit the prospect excited me. I was given 6 unique products to try over a week’s time.

I had not been too familiar with Living Proof before researching and testing out the products. It is a company that was founded in 2005 based in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Its staff is comprised of beauty experts and biotech scientists who use technology from MIT.

They have actually invented molecules that are patented (they have 11 to date!) and proven to actually do what they promise: make hair beautiful.

There were 3 major things that impressed me about this product line: the packaging, the scent and the delivery of promised results. The product packaging is pure genius — simple in nature, the color, size and shape of the product made it feel ultra-expensive and gave off a cool, trendy vibe.

Review, Before/After Photos: Living Proof No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner, Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, Flex Shaping, Full Root Lifting Hairspray, Amp² Instant Texture Volumizer

Product was easy to dispense and easy to store. The scent was one of my favorites: a light, fresh, citrusy smell. Everything I tried was true to its word and my hair turned out as promised.

Review, Before/After Photos: Living Proof No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner, Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, Flex Shaping, Full Root Lifting Hairspray, Amp² Instant Texture Volumizer

I started out using Living Proof Restore Mask Treatment ($42.00; 8 oz). This product was awarded the 2011 Best Anti-Aging Breakthrough seal by The Dr. Oz Show. It also uses OFPMA, a molecule that controls moisture. It works at restoring hair’s protective layer by smoothing the cuticle and strengthening each individual strand without weighing it down.

Also, the treatment is color-safe. I used it 2X this week to really deep condition my hair. I was very happy with the result; it definitely helped make my hair look less dry.

Next, I used Living Proof No frizz Leave-In Conditioner ($24.00; 4 oz). This product was created to treat dry, damaged or chemically processed hair using the same OFPMA molecule. It works to nourish, add moisture, detangle, tame frizz and prevent flyaways; recommended strongly for colored and highly processed hair. I definitely saw a difference — I had less frizz and my hair was more manageable.

My favorite product of the bunch is their latest: Living Proof Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment ($26.00; 4 oz). This product is launching at Ulta in September 2013. The beauty of this product is that it will give you the most perfect hair without a trip to the salon.

It uses both OFPMA and PBAE, which helps create long-lasting fullness. The product smoothes, volumizes, conditions, strengthens and polishes. I really thought this cream made a big difference. My hair never looked better! I am sure that it was a combination of all the products, but I really feel this product is a breakthrough. Using one product to do a multitude of things? Amazing!

Review, Before/After Photos: Living Proof No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner, Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, Flex Shaping, Full Root Lifting Hairspray, Amp² Instant Texture Volumizer

Flex Shaping Hairspray ($24.00; 7.5 oz) launched in August 2013. This product can be used on damp or dry hair and offers 3 solutions in one: it sets, styles and finishes any hairstyle. I was very happy with this hairspray, since I hate ones that leave your hair sticky, hard and unnatural looking. This spray has hold, but does not compromise the look or feel of your hair.

Review, Before/After Photos: Living Proof No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner, Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, Flex Shaping, Full Root Lifting Hairspray, Amp² Instant Texture Volumizer

Full Root Lifting Hairspray ($26.00; 5.5 oz) actually creates lift and height at the roots that lasts most of the day. I used this product when I went out one night; it was also very light, but magically gave me extra height and lift with no stickiness.

These were two great hairsprays that renewed my faith in hairspray application, since I was starting to despise the way most of them make my hair look and feel.

Review, Before/After Photos: Living Proof No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner, Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, Flex Shaping, Full Root Lifting Hairspray, Amp² Instant Texture Volumizer

Last, but certainly not least, was Amp² Instant Texture Volumizer ($24.00; 2 oz). This product also uses PBAE, helping hair maintain its incredible body. This product acts as a replacement for hot rollers or a curling iron to give you volume and texture just by using your hands!  

After: Using all products except Full Root Lifting Hairspray; styled STRAIGHT

Review, Before/After Photos: Living Proof No Frizz Leave-In Conditioner, Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment, Flex Shaping, Full Root Lifting Hairspray, Amp² Instant Texture Volumizer

It lasts for a long time, leaving revivable hair for up to 48-hours. I have longer hair, so I was not convinced that it would work, but, I was definitely blown away by the results. It also was not sticky, but worked to really take my hair to a new level. In my naturally curly state, my hair looked salon-styled.

All in all, I was impressed with this line of products. I only tried 6 and there are many more  offered by the Living Proof brand. There are products for different hair issues that all yield amazing results.

The reviews on the website are fantastic, and I doubt Jen will shave her head anytime soon. Being a co-owner of this product line will help her maintain great hair, whichever style she decides to rock. I know I just added another thing we have in common, as we  both love using the Living Proof line.

Available at Sephora, Ulta, Nordstrom, some salons, QVC and at Livingproof.com right now.

Review, Before/After Photos: Pantene Silky Moisture Whip, No Crunch Curls Moisturizer & Hair Styler: How To Get Smooth,Frizz-Free, Heatproof, Luscious Curls

Thanks to Twitter, I was able to meet celebrity hairstylist Danilo and have him style my hair using Pantene products at the Walgreens located in Times Square, NY. Shout-out to Amber Katz for that tweet, as I had the time of my life speaking with him while he so diligently turned me into a blonde bombshell.

He reminded me that Pantene was the first brand to bring over European styling products, as well as being the #1 mass hair styling line being sold today.

Before

Review, Before/After Photos: Pantene Silky Moisture Whip, No Crunch Curls Moisturizer & Hair Styler: How To Get Smooth,Frizz-Free, Heatproof, Luscious Curls

I sat in his chair with my limp curls, but, 40-minutes later, I felt like I could walk the runway… meaning, walk down the street and not feel insecure about my locks.

We talked to hairstylists and colorists all about CURLS! Learn how to style, care, condition & manage wavy, curly, textured hair —> HERE!

We chatted about how Pantene‘s products all have lock-in moisturizers, and that the way water moves through hair when we wash is what strips its natural shine and color. That is why Pantene has products that revives hair moisture and gives it the shine it naturally always had.

After

Nicole & Danilo

I did tell Danilo, whom I know has worked with such stars as Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Gwen Stefani and more, what products I had been using. He didn’t say anything negative about my haircare routine, and actually told me my hair was healthy — and that the Pantene products he’d be using on me would improve my hair’s overall appearance.

We rounded up the Best Haircuts for hair that’s curly, textured, kinky or coily. See photos —> HERE!

I asked him about his T3 blow dryer (which, by the way, dries hair about 30% faster than other blow dryers) and then we spoke of the products he wanted to use specifically for my hair. Danilo asked me what look I was going for, and I told him I truly wanted more defined curls, as I so often get blow-outs; I would wear my hair curly if it could only look better and more polished.

Danilo used the Pantene Silky Moisture Whip ($7.96) first to add hydration to my curls. This is no ordinary mousse: It’s lightweight, creamy and smells invigorating when applied.

BB Cream for hair, too? Check out our review of the Pantene Pro-V Ultimate BB Crème for hair —> HERE!

He told me to be mindful when I use it at home, as the applicator disperses a fair amount rather quickly; I started to play with my sample to see how much came out at once — it’s creamy and dreamy texture made me forget my crunchy curls that I had in the ‘90s for a moment!

Review, Before/After Photos: Pantene Silky Moisture Whip, No Crunch Curls Moisturizer & Hair Styler: How To Get Smooth,Frizz-Free, Heatproof, Luscious Curls

No crunch, it just added moisture, and when placed all over my hair the curls began to feel healthier and fall into place by themselves. Danilo often asked me to feel the smoother texture of my hair to show me that the product was working.

Then, Danilo added the Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BB Crème ($6.27), which acts as a BB for your hair. It gave my hair a silky, smooth feel and was inspired by the cosmetic industry’s BB Cream phenomenon. Not only can we have anti-aging products for our face, but yes, also for our hair. You know I have been very happy with the Alterna CC Caviar Cream, so this was also a new product I can use on a daily basis.

Check out our review, with Before/After photos, of the Alterna CC Caviar Cream that does 10 things in 1! Read about it —> HERE!

Danilo then curled my hair in sections and told me that the Pantene No Crunch Curls Whip Moisturizer & Styler ($6.99) was made for my hair! It is a multifunctional product that will automatically help my curls form into a better shape without any other product being needed for up to 48-hours.

Danilo, if you shall ever read this, thank you for making me feel like a blonde bombshell, and thank you for making Pantene products do what they say they do. My hair is bouncy, shiny, soft and has va-va-va voom curls… even in this heatwave. Kudos to Pantene! And kudos to the iconic and legendary man himself, Danilo.

What do you beautynistas think of Nicole’s frizz-free, heatproof curls? Do you have limp locks that needs some extra help?

Summer Hairstyle Trends 2013, 2014: How To Get Smooth, Frizz-Free, Straight Hair: Review, Aveda Smooth Infusion Prep Smoother & Glossing Straightener

Aveda Global Artistic Director, Styling, Allen Ruiz says, “My go-to styling products for smooth, straight hair are Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother and Aveda Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener. Both of these products add hold while making hair straight and defend against humidity.”

From letting your hair air-dry in a ponytail to salon tips, read on as Allen Ruiz tells us how to get smooth looking hair and make it last all summer long!

Summer Hairstyle Trends 2013, 2014: How To Get Smooth, Frizz-Free, Straight Hair: Review, Aveda Smooth Infusion Prep Smoother & Glossing Straightener

Aveda Smooth Infusion™ Style-Prep Smoother™ ($24.00) preps hair for long-lasting, smooth, sleek styling. A favorite among leading editorial stylists working backstage at New York Fashion Week, the innovative formula is a hybrid between a high performance leave-in treatment and a styling product.

Key Items For Smooth Hair

“Using a thermal protector is a must! The brush matters, too! The courser the hair the tighter/closer the bristles should be. Make sure you use a flat iron that has a temperature regulator.”

Summer Hairstyle Trends 2013, 2014: How To Get Smooth, Frizz-Free, Straight Hair: Review, Aveda Smooth Infusion Prep Smoother & Glossing Straightener

Let It Air-Dry

“If you want to skip the blow-dry, try putting your hair in a ponytail and let it dry during the day, then flat iron at night.”

Have you heard about the Cashmere Blow-out? A 4 oil complex and marine-derived mineral ingredients give you smooth, touchable hair! Learn more about it —> HERE!

Salon Tips

“Also, if you get a blowout at a salon, wait 15-minutes for you hair temperature to regulate before you leave. The contrasting temperatures of your hair and the outside air can cause frizz.”
