I’ve spent the majority of my life fighting my hair. Like most women I know, I want what I can’t have. Curly hair? Naturally, you want pin-straight tresses. Brunette? Of course, you long to be a blond.
My struggles were basically confined to taming my unruly curls until I began to color my hair… then the real trouble started.
Until that point (when hair color became a necessity and not simply a vanity), my hair looked pretty good. Although I abused it (hair dryer, straightening iron, loads of product) I still had plenty of shine and bounce.
Color, however, changed the equation completely. Almost overnight my hair became brittle and dry, lifeless and even harder to manage. Add humidity into the mix and by the end of your typical day, I resembled a badly groomed standard poodle.
To combat the problem I’ve experimented with almost every product out there – from high end salon solutions to homemade concoctions. And nothing I’ve tried has tamed my locks the way that new Loreal EverSleek Humidity Defying Leave-in Creme has!
Initially, I was skeptical. I’d used leave-in conditioners and crèmes in the past, with limited success. Either the result was a slightly greasy look or the anti-frizz effects diminished about midday.
But Loreal EverSleek is different. Simply dab a bit into your palm and work through towel dried hair. Then, just style as usual. The result is shiny, sleek and (according to my husband) oh-so-sexy!
You can purchase Loreal EverSleek at your local drug or grocery store. Retail approximately $8.99
