My battle with frizzy hair has been well-documented. (Check out this hair-straightening video for proof.)
But despite my best efforts, the minute a drop humidity hits the air, my strands pouf up.
A painstaking blowout with a round brush and a couple rounds with a flat-iron help, but I’m always worried that all the heat is damaging my hair, causing them to frizz even more.
Earlier this week, though, celebrity hairstylist Michael Silva introduced me to a new product that actually works with hot tools to not only protect, but also restore, damaged hair.
Michael, who regularly works with big names like Diane Kruger and Kim Kardashian, applied the Ghd Advanced Split End Therapy treatment to the ends of my towel-dried hair and use a wide-tooth comb to ensure an even distribution of the product.
After a quick blowdry – no major styling effort here! – Michael ran a Ghd Platinum flat-iron over my hair and then went back in and wound sections of it around the iron to create slight waves.
The heat from the flat-iron activates the treatment, helping to seal split ends and prevent future damage by giving strands a protective coating. The heat of a blowdryer alone isn’t enough to make the product work though, so a flat-iron is a must.
Think of this more as a twice-a-month treatment than a conditioner or every-day styling product. Its effects last up to ten washes.
I’ve shampooed four times already since seeing Michael, and my hair still feels sleeker and shinier than it did pre-treatment.
