Sandals. Straw bags. Lilly Pulitzer prints! Although I love many of the signs of spring, one that I loathe is frizzy hair! Since I was just a teen, I have struggled against my naturally thick hair and its tendency to frizz as soon as the temperature reaches 60 degrees.
Now that I am older and regularly heat style and color my hair, the issue has gotten even worse. So, I deep condition, use hair masks, and finishing oils – all of which can eventually weigh my hair down, leaving it looking limp over time.
I am left with an impossible choice: Volume with frizz, or shiny but lifeless? Until now…
Recently, I was given the opportunity to try a new Leave-in Protectant from Shielo. I’ve been a fan of Shielo haircare products for several years because they are so targeted. (For example, I love Sheilo Volumizing Shampoo which completely removes product build-up.)
The new Leave-in Protectant from Shielo is designed for daily use to combat those elements that conspire to rob hair of its moisture and wreak havoc on your “do.” From the sun’s powerful rays, to pollutants in the air, to heat styling tools, to (my personal nemesis) humidity — this protectant battles them all! It seals moisture in and keeps those harmful elements out.
Antioxidant-rich, the protectant contains Shea Butter and is designed to fortify every strand of hair with a protective moisture barrier, creating texture (and volume!). The unique complex contains pro-vitamins, proteins, White Tea and amino acids, infusing hair with vitamins while also providing UV protection, so important in spring as we spend more time outdoors.
As important as what it contains, equally important is what you won’t find.
The Shielo Leave-in Protectant is made with organic extracts and no parabens or harmful ingredients. Plus, it’s 100% cruelty free.
It is recommended for use as a styling aid while hair is damp (prior to using any heat styling tools). Using it this way gave me amazing, amazing, AMAZING volume, but my hair still looked soft and shiny.
It can also be used as a finisher throughout the day. I often find I need a touch up several times a day and the small spray bottle was perfect for toting about. The finished look (on dry hair) was never greasy. And, it didn’t gave that immobile, 1950’s debutante look you sometimes get with hairspray.
The Sheilo Leave-in Protectant retails for 18.99 and is available at Shielo. And, don’t forget to check out some of the other specialty hair care products offered. A few of my faves include Shine Restoration Oil, Volume Bounce Styling Crème, and Color Protect Strengthening Shampoo.
