Product Review: Living Proof No Frizz Kit

I tried the Living Proof No Frizz Kit last month and I wanted to post my review of it.  I have medium-thick, color treated hair that has mixed texture (curly and wavy).  My hair is VERY prone to frizz and flyaways.  In the tiny test-tube bottles is enough product to last about 5-6 washes (even with a super long mane like mine).  I wash my hair every three days so I was able to use this for over two weeks exclusively.  The shampoo doesn't lather...there are a few suds but nothing like shampoos that contain sulfate.  I also don't feel like it really "cleaned" my hair.  I've used sulfate free shampoos before and I've never had this issue but with this my scalp didn't feel clean even though I didn't have any noticeable product residue left in my hair after my shower.  The conditioner wasn't strong enough for my hair either......I noticed it felt a little like straw and it was more difficult to comb through it.  My hair did have a noticeable reduction in frizz when it was dry but I still had problems with flyaways.  

I used the nourishing styling cream, a nickel size amount on my ends before I dried my hair.  I still have a lot of product left so I'm still using it and I think it does help with frizz.  I noticed my hair doesn't hold curl from my curling iron as well - it might be weighing my hair down.  It worked really well when I used my straightener though, my hair was perfect - kink and frizz free.  The kit also includes a sample of leave in conditioner, there was enough product included for two treatments and it left my hair really soft.  I didn't heat style my hair when I used this though - I used it with the intent of letting my hair dry into it's naturally curly texture using a palm full of mousse to help the curl along.  I like this so much more than the conditioner included in the box.  I wish I had tried to style my hair with it, I wonder if it would have weighed it down. 

 I probably will not purchase the full size of any of these products but I'm glad I was able to try it.  It's been on my list for a couple of years and I was hoping that I would like it as much as the majority of the reviewers online.  I'd  still suggest it to someone who likes to wear their hair pin straight - it did a beautiful job when I wanted to straighten my hair, but I rarely wear mine that way.  I have moved on to the Alterna Bamboo shampoo and conditioner and I'm loving it.  I hope to review it in the future.
