Our dear friends who battle frizz: Let?s discuss the Keratin treatment. You know, the miracle session that supposedly straightens hair for two months but won?t allow you to use normal shampoo or, like, go swimming. Small price to pay for great locks, right? Wrong.
Stop torturing your hair with harsh formulas and look to these new, safe treatments.
For curly hair Julien Farel?s Zero Frizz Quickie ($200) combines hydrolyzed Keratin with Farel?s popular Zero Frizz Restore serum to eliminate that halo of frizz without losing body. On top of being odorless and formaldehyde-free, it takes only 60 minutes, and you can wash your hair that same night (no more pin-straight locks for 72 hours). Three washes in, our curls never looked better, and it lasted us a full six weeks. Julien Farel, 605 Madison Ave. (at 58th St.); 212-888-8988
For wavy hair There?s a phenomenon happening over at the Tosler Davis Salon and it goes by the name of Inphemon ($36). This conditioning treatment smooths hair?s surface, making it baby soft, and dramatically improves any moderately fuzzy situation. We opted to try the treatment at the salon (under a heat lamp), but you can also purchase the product online for daily at-home use. Tosler Davis Salon, 89 Fifth Ave. (between 16th and 17th sts.), 10th fl.; 212-229-0100
