Viewer Review: Frizz-Ease: Thermal Protection


Thanks to Candy from Dallas, TX for the review:

Tell us about it!: For those of us who have less than perfectly straight hair and are slaves to our flat iron, this product is for you! After stepping out of the shower and toweling my hair, one pump of this product spread through out my hair makes all the difference in the world. Even on those mornings when I forget or run out of conditioner, this product alone makes my hair silky smooth and shiny. My hair is much healthier, fewer split ends, and never gets tangled or out of control with this product. Its the best 8 bucks you’ll spend at the drugstore on your hair!

Guy Riggio- The hot new hair trends for Fall!



THINK: Give your hairstyle a fall makeover.

WHAT THEY ARE: Tips and tricks for fall from renowned stylist Guy Riggio. Change your hair with the season with expert advice from one of the foremost stylists at the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon in Los Angeles. “This fall is about extreme high fashion and looking polished, sharp and luxurious,” says Riggio. “This includes your best accessory—your hair.”

Riggio predicts the trends that will be taking the runways by storm this season:


The Low Ponytail—“Those girls who know they look great with their hair pulled back should definitely rock this look for fall,” says Riggio. “Before you gather your hair and pull it all back, section out a piece of hair at the nape of the neck. After you pull your hair away from your face, brush it with a Mason Pearson brush—every woman should invest in one. This will ensure that the hair visually moves backwards and remains uniform. Tack slicked hair into place with light hairspray to prevent flyaways. Fasten the ponytail with a clear hair band, then take the hair that’s sectioned out and wrap it around the ponytail, using a bobby pin to fasten.”


Sleek Flat Ironed Hair—“To get this look, start by blow drying using a small amount of your favorite relaxing cream,” Riggio recommends. “If hair is too stubborn to go straight, use a brush that is part plastic and part boar bristle. A ceramic flat iron is the best choice for straightening, as it’s very forgiving on the hair. After ironing, use a light application of your favorite glossing drops as a finishing touch.”


Braids—“Braids are going to make a comeback this year,” Riggio predicts. “But don’t envision Little Bo Peep—these braided up-dos are chic and bohemian all in one. The great thing about braids is that most girls can do them on their own. I recommend making random mid-thickness braids in the back of your head and a few from the side, leaving the front pieces straight. Then twist and wrap the braids around one another in a bun, making sure you intertwine the straighter pieces from the front and sides in with the braids. Secure the bun with bobby pins and remember to leave the style a little messy.”


Full Hair—“Bouncing, full, sexy hair is a great look for women who have wavy hair and don’t normally wear it down or flat iron it,” explains Riggio. “There are many ways to achieve this look—use a brush and blow dry, or use a large barreled curling iron. Even though roller sets can be a little time consuming, they do wonders for achieving this luscious look.”

How to acheive the perfect straight hair!


THE LOOK Straight diagonally-parted bob

HOW-TO “Ask your hairstylist for a wedgy bob full of texture,” says stylist Jerome Lordet of N.Y.C.’s Pierre Michel salon. Get this sleek style by running a flat iron through one-inch sections of hair and finishing with smoothing serum on the ends to keep them smooth.

INSIDER TRICK The front pieces should be chin-length and the back should have layers cut into it. “You get the wedge by layering the hair from shorter to longer at the nape of the neck,” says Lordet.
