Wave bye bye to frizz with a little help from Paul Mitchell


My war against frizz continues on.

It's tiring -- just when you think you got your hair to fall in line, a few soldiers go on the lam and spring out with guns blazing when you least expect it.

Now that I've upped the maintenance with bi-monthly visits to the salon thanks to my new 'do -- I also need to look after my investment with hair product that will fight the good fight while making it look shiny, bouncy and awesomely healthy.

Paul Mitchell has come in and out of my life over the years; I tend to tumble in whichever direction, especially after encountering a new stylist. Super Skinny Serum happens to be one of my favourite products for its travel-friendly bottle, green apple scent and its ability to quell errant hairs. Because my hair is so fine, I've found I really only need a half pump worth of product.

Tip: Always, always apply the product to your ends first and then work your way up, if not you run the risk weighing your hair down with too much product.

Been there, done that.

As for Paul's Super Skinny Daily Shampoo and Treatment, there was a slight learning curve during the first week of using all three smoothing products. On the first day my hair came out shiny and lovely, but on the second day (after washing and styling) it looked nice yet felt greasy to the touch. I'm a squeaky clean kinda gal, which is precisely why I wash my hair every day. Instead of throwing my hands in the air out of frustration, I changed my approach and used less product. My hair had finally reached its happy medium.

Guess what: Paul Mitchell's Smoothing range is colour-safe, too. Bonus!

Yesterday, I set my style with Paul Mitchell's Freeze and Shine Super Spray and boy does that stuff "freeze" your locks, so much that I thought my man-made waves would last the day. Alas, my curls fell flat, typical. Inquiring minds want to know why my naturally wavy hair refuses to hold a curl after tangoing with the barrel iron?! 

The Bagful breakdown:

Total amount for Paul Mitchell's haircare products:

I actually had a hard time tracking down consistent pricing, sorry guys. I've linked back to Paul Mitchell's global website in case you'd like to buy something at your nearest salon/retailer.

Value for money spent (performance and quality):

  • 8 out of 10 bags — good stuff and my hair says thank you.

Would another purchase be on the horizon?:
