We’ve waited all year for summer to arrive, but one thing we never look forward to this time of year is frizz. And I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the hunt for the perfect product to eliminate that dreaded hair faux pas.
I’m always willing to give a new product a shot, so when Carol’s Daughter Cupuaçu Anti-Frizz Smoothing Trio came across my desk, I decided it was worth a try. Could the product cocktail be the secret to beating frizz, I wondered? I wasn’t sure, but I was willing to find out.
With summer in full swing and my naturally curly/wavy hair feeling the frizz factor, I set out to test all three products in the line to see if they’d be my miracle frizz cure. I started out using the Cupuaçu Anti-Frizz Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner to see how the duo would treat my locks.
After showering, I skipped my usual leave-in products to see if this duo would truly stand up well against the frizzy beast, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the shampoo and conditioner’s effects lasted long after my shower. My waves were defined, shiny and smooth to the touch, and my hair was quite contained instead of the frizzy mess it can sometimes be on super humid days. These effects lasted for a few days, and I decided it was now time to give the Cupuaçu Anti-Frizz Smoothing Hair Mask a whirl.
As a beauty editor, I’m no stranger to hair masks, and love to do one at least once a week. But I’m also quite skeptical of them because not all masks do what they claim to do. Lucky for me, this mask did just what it said it would. Similar to the conditioner, the Anti-Frizz Smoothing Mask made my hair shiny and soft to the touch and it was quite easy to use and rinse off. Also like the other products in the line, the mask smelled pleasant and subtle.
As a curly gal, I know very well that one product line doesn’t fit all curl types, but I do believe that finding your perfect product cocktail, aka a collection of products you use together, can help train your hair to fight frizz. Two other ways I like to beat frizz in the summer months? Air drying and drying with a paper towel. When it’s hot and humid out, heat treating your hair can just beg for frizz, so I prefer to let my locks dry naturally. To help them along a bit, I like to pat my hair with a paper towel rather than a terry cloth towel, because rubbing it too harshly with a towel can cause extra frizz and what gal wants that?
