Is the weather crazy everywhere? Or just here? I never remember being in the 90's in early June, let alone in May. If it's this hot already I can't imagine what July will be like. One of the things about being near Lake Michigan is it gets humid here. Like, walk outside sweating immediately hair expands to 3 times it's size humid. I'm always looking for ways to combat the humidity, mostly with no luck. I don't have naturally straight hair, so I'm fighting the frizz on a normal day, add to it 90% humidity and forget it.
Kate over at The Small Things Blog talks quite a bit about Redken Slim Supreme. She calls it a flatiron in a bottle.
I really enjoy her hair tutorials, and agree with a lot of the products she uses (she's a hair stylist so she knows what she's talking about). Every time I went to Ulta they never had it though, finally this past weekend they had 1 bottle in stock so I snatched it up.
The directions say to use a pump on towel dried hair, and as needed on dry hair. I usually use Pureology Shinemax, and MoroccanOil, so I skipped my usual regimen and slathered this on. After drying my hair, I didn't notice any difference, it actually seemed a little poofier than normal. I thought I would use it again after styling to really see. The main thing I didn't care for is that it's runny, one pump was way too much, and I have a lot of thick hair. After flatironing I put a little more on, and while it does have a nice smell, it didn't do much of anything for me. I still had some flyaways, and my ends didn't look super smooth. I ended up using a tiny bit of MoroccanOil (didn't want to use too much and look like an oil slick) to smooth out my ends.
I guess this is a good example of one person's favorite isn't for everyone. It would probably be a good alternative if you didn't want to spend the $40 a bottle for MoroccanOil. At $16.50 a bottle it's much more affordable. I however, will be returning mine to Ulta.
