I am interested in this, but what I want is to keep my curls (ie not poker straight) but lose the frizz.. ie looking for shiny curls/waves....Would I get that effect if I applied it without using the straighteners...?
it works on any hair, it is however primarily a straightening effect so no Mrs doubt it would work for you. try boots curl cream or there is also a review of john friedas new go curlier heat activated spray £6.99 in the sunday mirror magazine that seems to rave at how soft and defined it leaves curls.
The Free From Frizz system is not a straightening system. It merely softens the bonds rather than breaking them. Straightened hair requires bonds to be broken and then set. If you are curly your curls will remain albeit a little strighter in early days.
There are two versions one for Fine / Normal and one for Thick / Coarse. These categories define the thickness of your actual hair shafts rather than the amount of hair you have. Around 70% of UK women are fine / normal. If your your individual hairs look more like sik thread you are fine normal.
I fancy trying the Amazon one - I have bleached hair that looks ok but is really quite damaged and if I don't bombard it with Kerastase and overnight oil treatments it breaks off. Would this be a good option or not for me? My hair tends to frizz and is wavy but I blow dry it straight - I don't want it poker straight though, just for it to be thicker and more weighty.
