I am forever on the prowl for hair care products that can tame my wurly, frizzy mop and transform it into smooth, soft, shiny tresses. When StriVectin sent over their Frizz Control Line for me to test drive, I was delighted. Formulated with specialized ingredients like their NA114 technology and a Hydrosmooth Anti Frizz Complex, StriVectin Hair Frizz Control hair care is created to lock in moisture, replenish strands and reduce porosity to smooth and calm that wild frizz. Sounds like exactly what my crazy hair needed! Did it live up to my hopes and expectations? Read on.
Let us begin with StriVectin Hair All Smooth Shampoo. This creamy white, lightly pearlized shampoo has a light, warm vanilla almond scent and works into a generous, cushioning lather to thoroughly cleanse my hair in just one shampooing then rinses away to leave my hair clean and fresh but not feeling stripped or squeaky.

Next up is StriVectin Hair All Smooth Conditioner. This thick, creamy stuff spreads easily through my hair to saturate every inch. I could wish for it to be more slippy, especially for wet comb out but it does leave my hair feeling softer and bumps up shine and smoothness.

SrriVectin Hair All Smooth Frizz Control Mist. This is where the rubber meets the road. Wash and condition with the matching shampoo and conditioner and then spray this mist into my hair, add a little oil - I always oil my hair - and blow dry with a paddle brush. Why, hello, there, smooth, shiny, swingy hair! My tresses don't end up flat or limp; they still have their natural body and bounce but they are so silky and have that lovely swish!

I also received the StriVectin Hair All Smooth Overnight Anti Frizz Serum however, I can't use it because it contains a chemical sunscreen. Would someone please explain to me why a chemical sunscreen would be included in the formula for an overnight hair treatment? A serum we apply before we go to bed to lie, inert in the dark? Because it makes no sense to me. Anyway...

Overall, I like the StriVectin Hair All Smooth Hair Care. It smells nice and with heat styling it makes my hair look and feel so silky and smooth and gives it that coveted swish I love so much. I do wish that the overnight serum didn't have chemical sunscreen in it so that I could have included it in my routine. Of the two StriVectin Hair lines I've been lucky enough to test drive, the All Smooth is definitely my favorite.
