Oh boo, well, I hadn’t had an issue with it building up but we’ll see.July 25, 2018 at 7:43 pm #774696
You could negate it by using an apple cider vinegar rinse every now and then or a somewhat regular sulphate shampoo wash, depends what your hair likes. I do a sulphate wash after every hair dye and it just resets my hair ready to go again with my usual routine.July 26, 2018 at 4:31 am #775456
My salon makes their own clarifying shampoo that’s pH-balancing or whatever, and I use that every couple weeks. I don’t do the curly-girl method so I’m not totally silicone and sulfate free.
I gotta say though, with just this tiny bit of product, in weather that’s been hot, rainy, and swampy, I slept on my hair last night and it didn’t frizz or poof, it’s still shiny with a nice wave.
I am ok with silicones in moderation in a high quality product that works like this, in summertime. I checked Moroccan Oil out of curiosity and it has dimethicone… I think that ingredient just makes these products work amazingly well, and if you use occasional sulfates then it’s ok to use them to combat extreme crap weather.July 26, 2018 at 11:51 am #775518
Speaking of the curly girl method, I’ve been doing it for about 6 weeks. I’m 2B wavy. My hair definitely looks better with a nicer wave, and it’s been less frizzy. I thought it would be hard to follow but it’s really not.July 26, 2018 at 11:57 am #775520
That’s good! I would like to do it, but I also like to switch between blowout and air dry, and not sure I could totally give up silicones.July 26, 2018 at 6:03 pm #775800
Yeah not everyone needs to follow the method at all, seeing as you have clarifying shampoo you’ll be fine. I don’t use heat so I don’t have a need to protect my hair like that but I can see silicones being handy for styling.November 24, 2018 at 4:46 pm #809903
So, whoa. My salon got Shu Uemera hair products and my stylist used this polishing milk before blow drying my hair straight. The crazy thing was that she didn’t really have to use any tension with the brush to blow my hair out. My hair’s wavy and frizzy, and usually has to be pulled really taut to get it smooth. This was like, she just kind of ran the round brush down each section. Like honestly I could have done it. Crazy! I didn’t buy it because I was already spending a lot on cut and color and it’s not in a travel size, but I want it.
She used this primer spray first, which also seems like an awesome product.

i started using Olaplex: https://www.allure.com/story/olaplex-hair-treatment and it is amazing….it is for colour-treated hair, but i find it has transformed my dry, frizzy, heat damaged hair into healthy shiny hair….and i have no more split ends or breakage….i got mine at SephoraNovember 26, 2018 at 9:18 am #810045
I have olaplex too, but wasn’t wowed by it. I’m halfway through my second bottle.November 26, 2018 at 11:28 am #810059
I didn’t realize Opalex did shampoo I just know about the color treatment they put in, that is a very limited description as my brain is so foggy this a.m. due to period brain and currently freezing my buns off from shoveling outside. Interested in that.
I did however realize yesterday I didn’t wash my hair for a week so it was about time. I do wash my bangs and the very top between since I have thin hair so the grease makes me look like a drowned rat.
Husband installed a new shower head this weekend. Ours was clogged (we have really hard water here) and even with CLR, Vinegar, etc it just wasn’t helping. We bought a cheap $20 one that seemed to have a nice spray range. WOOOHOOO! Best shower I have ever had here, actual water pressure. The prior one was only a year old, that’s how bad our water is. Plus I don’t just have two inches of water hitting me so I am half freezing the whole time. Already excited about my shower in a little bit but holding off until I am done snow clearing so I can warm up and not go back into the cold.November 26, 2018 at 6:28 pm #810119
I love Olaplex 3, I use it all the time. It’s CG approved for anyone who is interested and it’s been great for my colour treated hair.January 12, 2019 at 2:23 pm #815495
Omg. I bought a travel size of this product, a repairing blow-dry cream by Bumble + Bumble, and I LOVE it. I came to terms with the fact that I do like silicones, just trying to limit how many I layer on.
This formulation is for dry or damaged hair, but they have the All Style formulation for normal hair. It did exactly what you would want – smooth, shiny, hair had body and not weighed down, no stickiness or greasiness. Perfect! As a reminder, my hair is pretty wavy, pretty frizzy, and not thick.
