The promise

Story continues below advertisement

A lasting conditioning curl treatment, this product aims to create a soft style using elasto-polymers uniquely designed to smooth, hydrate and tame curls. It's geared toward those with dry, coarse, unruly curls.

How it works

The treatment uses camomile blended with keratin and silk proteins to nourish and improve texture, resulting in manageable curls without stiffness or frizz. Bonus points for the UV-ray absorbers that protect your hair colour from damage.

How to use it

Pump some into your hand and distribute evenly through damp hair. Allow your hair to air dry or blow it dry with a diffuser. It can also be used on dry hair to revitalize curls and curb frizz.

The bottom line

Sometimes different parts of your body will tell you that it's time to switch things up. Your brain, for example, might tell you that the Prozac isn't working any more. Your thighs might obnoxiously point out that your midnight grilled-cheese sandwich habit isn't doing you any favours. (The latter may actually boost your mood more than Prozac, though.)

Recently, my hair screamed at me for using the same styling products for too long. It was all, "Hey sister, why don't you make like your love life and experiment with some new product?" While I was taken aback by the implication − I swear I don't date that much − I felt it was time to heed the advice. Lately I've been mixing this product with any mousse I can get my hands on and the result has been smooth, airy curls without a hint of frizz. It also helps to relax my ringlets a bit, giving me a looser look. Which is in no way a reflection on my love life. Honest!

$12.99 at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.
