Ahhh, the sounds of summer. Children playing in the streets squealing with delight as they hear the ice cream truck, the roll of the waves at the seaside, the chime of a bicycle passing you on the sidewalk, the whimper of a woman fighting the battle with frizz and losing. Yep, we have all been there. We have all been her…you know who…the woman who turns into a five year old little girl yanking the brush through her hair and stomping her foot exclaiming “I hate my hair!!” sending every man within a 10 mile radius to make a run for the hills. (who could blame them, honestly.).
Today’s tale is about alcohol free products. Alcohol free products are less drying and some have found that using alcohol free products helps eliminate frizz and said products have been known to save a marriage or two. (of course a glass of alcohol has been known to do the same but that is another tale for another day). The best way to eliminate frizz is finding the magical combination of alcohol free AND humidity resistant…don’t be so doubtful…such products to exist…read on. Since all these products are Salon professional, they are all color safe.
I have compiled a list of some of the favorite products sold at my shop that are alcohol free;
JOICO JoiWhip Mousse – adds great volume and hold (a little goes a long way…too much and can tend to be sticky…dispense so foam is about the size of a small egg)
GOLDWELL Glamour Whip Mousse – adds volume and hold
RUSK Jelle Gloss – Works great as a setting lotion or for that slicked back look
AG – Liquid Varnish – A serum to add shine, can be used on wet or dry hair (a little goes a long way…use too much and you will look like Danny Zuko from Grease)
AG – Spray Varish – A shine spray, to be added to hair after you have the look you want, just with a little more shine. (lightly mist it over your hair)
MOROCCANOIL oil treatment – use on wet hair to reduce drying time and to control fly-aways
MOROCCANOIL Glimmer Spray – A shine spray, apply to add shine to your lovely locks.
SOMA Hot Body – A volumizing gel, great hold and no flaking.
Now, the list of alcohol free and humidity resistant products…told you they existed;
SOMA Curly Cue – an awesome gel formulated for curls, keeps them soft and bouncy, and free of frizz
SOMA Prism Shine Spray – a lightweight shine spray that never leaves a build up or greasy look.
SOMA Rage out – a styling cream that can be used for straight or curly styles.
SOMA Solace – A cuticle sealer. Meant to lock that cuticle shut so no matter what the weather, the humidity cannot open up that cuticle and create frizz.
I hope this helps silence the tantrums and whimpers from behind the bathroom door, if not… I can give you a great apple-tini recipe, you will still hear the whimpers, they will just become more bearable.
