Not a fan of Frederic Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless

I went to Ulta the other day, and went straight to Fekkai, for my must-have Glossing Cream (I’ll never use anything else on my hair!). I noticed that Fekkai has a new line of products, called Silky Straight Ironless.

Each product in the Silky Straight Ironless collection, infused with advanced micro-smoothing technology, is created to work synergistically to create and hold chic, straight style and luxuriously silky texture without effort. This weightless Smooth Finish Serum wraps each hair strand with concentrated smoothing agents and fights humidity, frizz and curl all day for sleek and shiny hair.

I have always had a problem with frizzy hair, and while Glossing Cream is the best product for this, I still have flyaways all day long to deal with! So I picked up Fekkai’s Silky Straight Ironless Smooth Finish Serum. The description read:

This weightless Smooth Finish Serum wraps each hair strand with concentrated smoothing agents and fights humidity, frizz and curl all day for sleek and shiny hair.

How to use: For best results, apply 1-2 pumps and spread through dry hair. For especially unruly hair, combine with the Ironless Straightening Balm on wet hair before blow-drying.

Sounds perfect, no?

Well no…it’s not. It doesn’t work at fighting frizz AT ALL. It did not leave me with sleek and shiny hair. In fact, I’m not sure it didn’t make my hair worse!

I returned it to Ulta, and bought another bottle of Glossing Cream.

My Review: Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless Line

I just had the chance to try this line and I was excited but skeptical as you can see from the before picture below my hair is really curly naturally. Well my doubt was silly Fekkai has produced another brilliant hair care line even with my curly hair the shampoo and conditioner were able to leave it silky straight with just a few minutes of blow drying.

Usually I avoid straightening my hair because its hard labor to dry it and then iron it. The Fekkai Ironless Shampoo and Conditioner were strong enough to tame the curl without drying out my hair! I think I have to buy the Ironless Balm now, can’t wait to see how well it works!

Get Natalie Portman and Reese Witherspoon’s Oscar Hair – styled by Fekkai!

Frederic Fekkai’s Didier Malige styled Best Actress, Natalie Portman. I thought her hair was gorgeous!

INSPIRATION: A glamorous bohemian style that’s soft, romantic, and feminine

HOW TO:

1) Apply an anti-frizz product and volumizer before blow-drying the hair smooth using a round brush.

2) Then curl the hair using a 1” curling iron to create soft and feminine waves.

3) Next, create a foundation for the style by backcombing the bottom layers of the hair.

4) Sweep the hair to the left side of her face, securing with bobby pins.

5) For a finishing touch Didier used one of Natalie’s earrings as a shimmery accent piece.

6) Secure the look with a sheer hairspray.

She was so beautiful last night! I thought she looked great, and I was so happy she won the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in ‘Black Swan’.

Frederic Fekkai’s Renato Campora styled Presenter, Reese Witherspoon.

INSPIRATION: To compliment her gown, Renato channeled a mod-60’s high ponytail over combined with the top glamour

HOW TO:

1) Create the foundation for the style by applying Fekkai Coiff™ Bouffant Lifting & Texturizing Spray Gel and the Fekkai Silky Straight Ironless™ Smooth Finish Serum.

2) Blow-dry hair with the Fekkai Large Round Brush to enhance fullness and volume.

3) Divide the hair into two sections.

4) Using a 1 ½ curling iron create movement and volume on the bottom layer.

5) Tease the roots of the top section to create the volume.

6) Finish the look by spraying Fekkai Coiff™ Sheer Hold Hairspray to secure the silhouette and shape of the style

I missed seeing Reese on the Red Carpet – but when I saw her on the show – she definitely did not disappoint! She looked gorgeous! Can’t wait for her new movie, ‘Water For Elephants’.

Awesome Fekkai news – their products are now available at Target! Woohoo! (It’s all I use on my hair). You can also buy them online here.
