Don't despair, repair!
Updated: Aug 6, 2020
True story. I'm not really a fan of going to the hair salon. There are only a few I can trust and that I really felt that made a difference in my hair. Growing up in Brazil with curly/frizzy hair wasn't the easiest. I' d go to blow-dry my hair at a salon and they would toss me to one another because I always had really long hair and they knew it would take too much time and work to do it. Also most of them don't really know how to straighten my type of hair and as a result, my roots would be frizzy an hour after the (bad) job was done.
I also tried those straightening treatments for a long time, but most of them (at least in Brazil) have formol (Formaldehyde, yes that thing they use to preserve dead bodies) in their formula and after going through huge health problems as a result from putting so many chemicals into my body, I decided I'd NEVER do it again. And I haven't since I left Brazil to live in Portugal, almost 7 years ago.
So dealing with my frizzy hair has been a journey. I've learned to blow dry it myself and because I'm constantly doing it, it becomes very dry and broken. A great solution for it is to hydrate it as much as possible.
I've recently started using this Briogeo line of deep conditioning treatment that is clinically-proven to be effective and is fortified with rosehip oil, almond oil, algae extract and b-vitamins to restore dry, damaged hair to look shiny and healthy.
