Makeup Wars: Frizz Fighters and Volumizers

Purchased by me. Sent for review. Contains affiliate links. 

This Makeup Wars is so near and dear to my heart. My hair is struggling. I'm honestly two steps away from going to Philadelphia to have a hair scientist evaluate what is going on with my hair. Is it just dry and prone to frizz? Or is it lacking keratin in strange way that doesn't allow it to hold on to moisture? Or is it just frizzy?

Here are the products that work for me right now. (I swear I'm testing something new every two weeks for my hair.) This is serious business and my standards before I'll recommend anything are HIGH. The last thing I want to do, little sisters, is waste your time or money.

Zerran Hair Redemption uses a low to medium weight molecular version of keratin that actually penetrates the hair shaft and fills in the cuticles like one fills in a pothole. It won't ever cause brittleness in the hair, which is the biggest problem with most keratin treatments. Keratin deficient hair can't hold on to moisture. This is helping me in amazing leaps and bounds. It's not expensive and if you have damaged hair, you'll want to grab this right now. Seriously. I'd buy it for you if I was made of money. It's that good.

Aveda Smooth Infusion will help keep your hair frizz free and relaxed for days or forever, depending on how you use it. You apply the Smooth Infusion Style Prep Smoother primer and then either the Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight Treatment version that keeps hair straight and frizz free permanently (if you follow the directions and continue use) or the Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener version that keeps your hair frizz free and relaxed until you wash. It's amazing stuff. Don't believe me? Check out my before and afters!

Obliphica uses Seaberry to help repair damage and after using the Seaberry Hair Mask once and the Seaberry Hair Oil (for thick or coarse hair, the purple one) over the weekend, I'm gobsmacked by it's healing power. The oil feels very thick and heavy, but somehow sinks into the hair (especially overnight) and doesn't leave my thin/thick very damaged hair greasy. The owner of this company purchased it after having the exact same experience I did and I don't blame her one bit. It's that good.

And let's not forget adding volume. I hate putting more products into my hair than I have to. The only foolproof way to add lasting volume is the VOLOOM. The VOLOOM adds instant volume that stays until you wash your hair, even if that's days later. If volume is something you struggle with, the VOLOOM is something you need. Guess what? I have more before and afters with the VOLOOM, too!

  1. You are having problems with your hair because it is damaged from bleaching it blonde. It is not a mystery!

    1. Right. Duh. But that was about a year ago. My hair has mainly been cut off and grown out since then, minus the last 4 inches. Obviously something in the bleaching process dried out my already not pretty textured hair (which I've been complaining about forever!) and bleach is the big answer. But that doesn't explain why the hair that hasn't been bleached is acting so weird. My hair is 100% gray (and has been for years), so I don't bleach it to keep it blonde. That's a straight deposit only color. I've tried EVERYTHING to make it not be a horrible texture. I'm getting closer and closer to finding something that works. This is my best combination so far!

  2. I'm dying to try that Voloom thing!

  3. Aveda is my jam but I'm curious about that Hair Redemption product. It doesn't seem to be for sale on their website.

    1. The Hair Redemption is amazing - it's linked above. I have the latest packaging from the brand- but it's all the same.
