    Sabino Lock and Block Tames Frizzy Hair

    Sabino Lock and Block

    Beat the Frizz This Summer with Sabino Lock and Block

    I’m a lucky girl, I get to test drive hair products periodically and here’s one I think is blog-worthy, especially with the heat and humidity of summer right around the corner.

    A lack of moisture as well as too much moisture in the hair can wreak havoc with our locks. When hair is dried out and lacking moisture, it becomes dull, brittle, fly away. When summers humidity is high, hair explodes into a ball of uncontrollable frizz or becomes limp and flat.

    So what’s a girl to do? Sabino Lock and Block, Moisture Manager is an excellent product. You feel immediate results from this hair frizz product. It locks in essential moisture you need to keep your hair supple, shiny silky and manageable. My hair type is fine textured, wavy, colored and I have a medium amount of it. I needed to experiment to find the right amount of Sabino Lock and Block to use. Too much product and my hair became too soft , limp and greasy the next day. But finding the right amount of product for my hair, gave my hair extreme silkiness, softness and shine.

    My niece Lisa, had a somewhat similar experience using Sabino Lock and Block Moisture Manager, with her extremely thick hair, (think horse-tail) long, coarse, curly hair. She loves to wear her hair long, but rarely wears it down because it requires so much time to style it and if she doesn’t, it’s out of control. With Sabino Lock and Block Moisture Manager, she was able to straighten it, it stayed straightened and it left her hair softer and shinier than anything she’s used before. That’s impressive for her hair type! She did find when she left her hair air dry, that her curl got too limp. (I think she needs their gel, Curls for Curly Hair, when defining the natural curl.)

    Frizzy Hair Options

    Frizzy Hair

    An article about one woman’s struggle taming frizzy hair

    Fellow blogger Heather Staible has a pretty good post on her trials and tribulations with trying to deal with her frizzy hair. She does an excellent job of covering your options if you have frizzy hair, especially if you are near Houston. Must reading for all of you frizzy hair types out there.

    Because my hair was not super curly, just wavy in all the wrong places, Taye used an ammonium thioglycolate hair relaxer called Thio on my frizzy hair. The multiple step process took almost three hours, with a good part of time spent at the shampoo bowl because of the frequent solution applications and washings. Taye instructed me to avoid exercising for three days because sodium affects the pH balance of the frizzy hair and can reverse the effect of the relaxer. She also told me to steer clear of bands, barrettes or clips because we were “training the hair.”

    The result literally brought me to tears. It has given me the hair I once spent huge amounts of time and products to achieve. The relaxer controls the volume and the general bend of my frizzy hair, but allows me to curl it if I want to.

    Anti Frizz Product Review

    Anti Frizz

    VO5 anti frizz product review for those of you curly heads with frizzy hair

    This time of year humidity can be a real headache for those of you with curly hair. Frizz can occur out of nowhere and frustrate all of your hair styling attempts. Your hair absorbs the moisture in the air expanding each hair like a balloon. So I’m always on the lookout for anti frizz products and ideas that might help all of my frizzy haired readers. Recently I ran across this piece from the Louisville Courier Journal.

    What is really interesting about the article is that the writer, Megan Conley, just finished seventh grade at Barret Traditional Middle School in Louisville. I tink she did a pretty good job, don’t you?

    Anti Frizz Curls
    Big-hair days are a thing of the past with VO5 mousse
    By Megan Conley

    Who is having a good hair day? Many women hate their curly hair. But why not love it? VO5 has a new anti frizz hair product called Curvaceous Curls! Styling Mousse. Just scrunch it in your hair and have anti frizz, springy curls all day long. Besides its outstanding power to define your waves and curls, it can be found for a very low price.

    I first discovered my favorite mousse the day after I got my hair cut. When I was at the hair salon, the woman who cut my hair put in a sensational mousse to keep my waves under control. While my mom was paying, I asked if they sold the curling mousse at the salon. The cashier quickly led me to a shelf with many of the bottles. Before I had a chance to pick it up, I noticed the price tag. It was $13.99. In my opinion, that is way too much for a small bottle of mousse.

    The next day at Target, I was browsing the cosmetic aisles. Suddenly, the VO5 anti frizz Curvaceous Curls! Hair Mousse came into view. The bottle was as bright red as a cardinal. “Curvaceous Curls!” was printed boldly on the front of the bottle. I quickly picked it up and threw it in the cart.

    Ever since that day, I use the VO5 anti frizz curling mousse every time I don’t have my hair in a ponytail. One of the best characteristics of the mousse is the texture. Once you shake the bottle, all you have to do it press the cap down. Immediately, white foam will push through the bristled cap. The foam is fluffier than a cloud. It makes it very easy to work with.

    Besides the magnificent texture of the mousse, your hair will be soft and silky for the rest of the day. Unlike ordinary hair sprays and gels, your hair will not be as stiff as straw. The mousse will not dry it out either. Also, your hair will not be weighed down. This mousse allows your hair to move and spring around freely.
