You’re probably all aware by now that I’m on the eternal path to achieving straight, frizz free hair. Most recently I blogged about Agadir Argan spray which I absolutely adore!
So when I was approached to review an at home straightening system by Jo Baz how could I say no. I want to make it clear that this is not a paid review. I was given the product for free and all opinions are honest and my own.
The product states that you should be able to use it easily at home on your own. However I chose to enlist the help of hair stylist extraordinaire Shaun Monro from Colour by Numbers in Richmond. Without his help this procedure surely would’ve taken me double the time.
Okay- lets begin with some background info on my hair. It’s quite thick and course. Pretty long – to my bra strap- with a fringe. It’s dry and coloured with a tendency for split ends. In other words – a hot mess if I don’t treat it right.
The whole process took me (with the help of Shaun) roughly 3 hours. I have no doubt it would’ve taken much longer at home without all the amenities of a salon -ie. gossip magazines and general gossip.
The verdict: After the Jo Baz treatment my hair did seem much straighter and without all the kinks I normally get. The biggest change I’ve found is that waking up in the mornings my hair is now as straight as it was the night before. Previously I would often wake up with Shirley Temple curls along the hair line- especially underneath. No more- they are now straight.
The first time I washed my hair (after 3 days) I found it much easier to blow dry and straighten. In fact, my GHD time was cut significantly.
However…my hair does feel much drier than it did before. As a result I find I need to use leave in treatments every other day. Also it has lightened the colour of my hair quite a lot – which in all honesty I don’t really mind. In fact it seems to have neutralised the red tones I had!
One thing I regret doing is applying the product to my fringe. I must have not kept it straight enough during the process as now I can’t seem to manipulate it as well as I could before. So if you have a fringe, I strongly suggest you leave it alone.
Would I use it again? Probably not until my hair was in peak condition. Having said that though, I do believe the product delivered exactly what it promised – straight hair that removes wave and bulk. It certainly did that. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is tired of spending hours drying and straightening their frizzy, unruly hair!
