Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo


Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo


If your hair's thin, opt for a less heavy, silicone-free shampoo. This one is packed with OFPMA, a frizz-fighting molecule developed by scientists at MIT that's just as effective and lighter than its silicone-based brethren.

A frizz-fighting shampoo that removes dirt and oil and smoothes hair without stripping, Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo offers rich lather and a lemony scent. It leaves hair clean and manageable—without stirring up frizz—and since it's sulfate-free, it won't dull color or dry it out.

Sally Hershberger Curvaceous Elasto-Curl Daily Treatment


Curvaceous 
Elasto-Curl Daily Treatment


Sally Hershberger Curvaceous Elasto-Curl Daily Treatment will change a curly girl’s life! This breakthrough conditioning treatment with Elasto-Polymer wraps around the hair strands to soften and smooth the curls, so curls become managed and defined. The genius is in the flexibility of the polymer, which leaves the curls with light, sexy movement- no more stiffness or crunch! The hair follicle for curly hair is more brittle and dry, and Sally knows that curly girls are constantly searching for a product to tame unruly hair. Curvaceous instantly smooths out the frizz to shape modern, curly styles that last.

DIRECTIONS: Pump into palms and distribute through damp hair with fingertips. Air-dry or diffuse. May also be used on dry hair to revitalize curls and control frizz.


KEY BENEFITS:

  • Wraps around the hair strands to smooth out the follicle 
  • Gives curls back their shape and flexibility 
  • Adds brilliance to highlights, while stimulating the hair follicles and soothing the scalp 
  • Nourishes and hydrates hair for softer, more manageable curls without stiffness or frizz 

KEY INGREDIENTS:

  • Elasto-Polymer is the latest in curl technology 
  • Chamomile is blended with Keratin and Silk proteins 
  • Vitamin B strengthens and adds luster 
  • UV absorbers help protect hair color from sun damage 

What I love about Curvaceous, is it gives the curls control but there is still sexy movement- it’s never stiff or hard. Because the frizz is smoothed out, you have the flexibility to create the most gorgeous curly styles- finger waves, pin curls, spirals. Curly hair is simply more manageable.” – Sally Hershberger
