Help with Frizzy Hair....

Post by fritzy » Wed, 19 Nov 2008 10:04 pm

Hi,

I was wondering how those of you with frizzy hair tame your locks? I have tried a number of products but nothing really works and I am sick of wearing my hair back all the time.

I rang one salon today that gave me a quote for $500 to do this protein treatment that will straighten my hair for about 4 months. Not only is it super expensive but I would need to get it done regularly. I believe re-bonding is cheaper, but I’m worried that it will damage my hair (its already damaged enough from coloring and straightening irons).

Cheers.

If you are asking about styling products, there's one I use for my naturally curly, fine hair which is frizzy all the time in Singapore. It's the humidity.
Loreal Studio Smooth Perfect Instant Control Fluid - You can find it at Watsons, Cold storage, supermarkets and Guardian Pharmacy, selling about S$10+. I apply it after shampoo while hair is still damp and let it air dry. It does not make the hair crunchy like most other products.

All salons charge by hair length with hair relaxing and straightening. If you have long hair, say past mid arm. I would not be surprise if they quote you $300 or more.

I'm not sure about the protein treatment straightening you are talking about.

I have done this hair relaxing treatment that protects the hair at the same time at Shunji Matsuo salon at Wellington Bldg, they call it Cosmic cream or something like that, I forget now. I've only done it for my fringe and it cost about S$100+. Last me about 3-4 months and it's very soft and shiny, not dead straight like rebonding, I've not experience damage or split ends from this treatment.

I had my frizzy hair tamed at kudos by headline hairdressing at Chinatown it was near my hotel so I took a chance. They did mucota rebonding on my hair and I was very surprised it turned out so well. The Stylist Ken is very experience with Caucasian hair. Definitely worth a try. +65 9157 8700 is their contact number to make an appointment. They sure are my go-to salon now.

My hair used to be wavy, but as I got older it slowly became frizzier and frizzier. After using numerous products such as creams, serums, and even hair oils, I finally decided to take the plunge and get it chemically straightened. The first time I did this, I got it rebonded for around $150 as my hair was rather short at the time (some salons charge more for longer hair which I find very dishonest). The results were good, but only for about 2 months. As my roots started to grow out, I noticed a very clear line where the treated hair ended and my natural hair began. I found it to be both unnatural and ugly, so I decided to try something different. The next time I got my hair done, I got the whole head rebonded, but the bottom half of my hair permed in the “Korean wave perm” style. It cost around $269 as the salon was running a promotion. The results were great. My hair was smooth, silky, with a natural, gentle wave running through it. Best of all, even after 6 months when my hair had grown out by a couple of inches, it still looked natural! Now I get it done every 6 months at a salon in Orchard, but you can do it anywhere that offers rebonding and perming services. Good luck!
