I saw the commerical for the new serum on TV last nite and must admit I was impressed. They're using allnatural oils and claim it can keep hair frizz free for 48hrs. Am wondering if this is something that can ACTUALLY be achieved with oils or product generally speaking?? Or is this too good to be true?? :confused:

Considering I live in BC (near Seattle) and our humidity level tends to be high (even when it's not raining), am thinking this might be one to add my grocery basket. :p
site link for product is:

Yes oil (Oiling tutorial (http://www.longhaircommunity.com/forums/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=71)) can help reduce frizz, so can ACV rinses (http://www.longhaircommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45683), lemon rinses (http://www.longhaircommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53745&highlight=lemon+rinse), deep moisture treatments like SMT (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=128), Conditioner only washes (http://www.longhaircommunity.com/forums/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=18), micro-fiber towels (http://www.curlmart.com/store/aquis-mimis-diva-dryer-hair-towel.html), Oil shampoo (http://www.longhaircommunity.com/forums/vbjournal.php?do=article&articleid=191) and leave-in conditioners (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=35280&highlight=leave+conditioner). It's really a matter of finding out what works for your particular hair. I recommend trying EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) first because it's easy to find, light and it works for a lot of people.

Good luck! :D

I do ACV rinses and use a microfiber towel. Have considered the EVOO method but honestly I don't have time for all that's involved (I get home at 6, and am in bed at 9:30 up at 5:30am, 5am if I need to shower). While the EVOO and other oil routines sound great in theory they just won't work for me.

I do have a John Frieda oilbased serum (from his Brilliant Brunette line): when I use it on wet hair, it's fine but doesn't reduce frizz dramatically. On dry hair, it just seems to make my locks go limp. Hoping I won't have the same results if I try the L'Oreal frizz free line.

Lemon rinses and CO washes are the ones that worked best for me personally.

I'm not sure what you mean by "EVOO method" all you have to do is put a couple of drops of oil in your hands, rub them together and apply it to wet or dry hair (after washing), it takes seconds so you don't have to worry about time.

Also the leave in conditioners I've used are the detangling sprays they have for kids, they work great and you can apply that on wet or dry hair, it takes about as long as it takes you to spray your hair, 30 seconds?

And CO washes don't add to my shower time at all I apply the conditioner on my dry hair, massage my scalp, then do my regular shower duties and rinse it out at the end. I imagine it would be the same with oil shampoo since it's one step and you just put it on your hair work it through and rinse it out.

I understand wanting to spend as little time possible to get your results, but don't worry, these things don't take a lot of time at all (except for the SMT). :D

Sorry -miscommunicated about the EVOO. There's so many oiling methods on this site, can be hard to keep track sometimes..:eye:
most oil methods on this site require a few hrs to overnite leave-in treatment of the oil, followed by a wash out in a day or so. will def try the EVOO now, tx for the clarity :o

I do use leave in CO's as well as detangling spray (only when I really need it)

No problem I figured you meant something different. I'm so excited for you to try a new washing method. Just keep in mind the best tips I ever got about CO: dilute it with water if it leaves your hair oily, try a few conditioners until you find something you like and clarify your hair if you get build-up. If you ever have problems or questions with CO this is a good thread to ask for solutions: The CO (conditioner only) washing thread (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=2898).

I can't recommend the lemon rinse enough, so if after CO and EVOO you still have frizz definitely give it a try. It rules. :D

Good luck! :D

My hair becomes a real mess in high humidity and rain. So thank for condensing all the anti-frizz information :). I have read some of those links but not all. Off I go to check them out!

Thanks for the help! Is the lemon rinse ratio the same as the ACV? And what are the benefits of it as opposed to ACV? inquiring minds want to know!

You're welcome! I'm really glad my post can help you out. :D

Yeah the concentration is about the same, just a little smaller, the OP of the lemon rinse thread recommends about a half a tea spoon lemon juice to an 8 ounce glass of water and she doesn't rinse that out. As opposed to ACV it reduces frizziness a lot more. I linked you to the thread, you can find before and after pics on there, if you want a visual. The results are usually dramatic.

cool, will check out the link. as long as it doesn't lighten my hair (am v deep brunette) this may be added biweekly or so.

A lot of people ask about that and in my experience it did not lighten my hair and everyone that uses it says that the concentration is too low to lighten hair.

From the L'Oreal website:

"L’Oréal Paris Nutri-Sleek Serum smoothes fly-aways and makes hair more manageable. Nourished, calmed, smoothed and perfectly sepertated by the action of Argan Oil, hair regains a soft, sleek and supple texture with lasting protection against frizz."
(emphasis added)

Great, I've always wanted sepertated hair.
