Heat-Activated Proteins for Frizz-Free Hair
If you want to slash styling time, boost shine, and eliminate frizz, try a Perfection Smooth Out by L’Oreal. This treatment uses a dryer to infuse the product’s heat-activated amino acid complex into hair’s shaft and follows with a flat iron to coat cuticles for healthier, shinier hair. Unlike Japanese straightening or Brazilian blowouts, which use harsh chemicals such as formaldehyde, the Perfection Smooth Out is more of a conditioning treatment than a straightener, so it won’t leave hair pin-straight and washes out gradually over three months. Stylist Elena Evangelisga says treatments typically start at $350; PierreMichelBeauty.com.
