When we spotted Rachel Bilson at the Brian Reyes show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week on Tuesday, we longed for shiny, pin straight hair, which managed to stay sleek and frizz-free despite temperatures in the 80s in NYC.
We tested out the new stuff today, and combined with my Paul Mitchell straightener, frizz and curls didn’t stand a chance!
Since I have coarse hair I applied Redken Power Tame 16 Intense Straightening Balm while it was still damp to protect it from heat damage. I blow dried my hair using these tips and fixed a few spots up with my flat iron. I followed with another product I’m addicted to, Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, to lock in shine. I acheived the skinny, straight look but my hair didn’t look weighed down or greasy.
If you have fine hair, Redken has a similar product that will work wonders for you: Sheer Straight 06 Lightweight Straightening Gel.
